Two powerful high range capable of shooting with everything

It is obvious that these are two powerful terminals in all their sections. They are big bets for screens without borders and OLED technology. At this point it is very difficult to overcome Samsung, because it is a leading company in this technology.

It should be noted that the 5T screen represents a qualitative jump compared to that of its predecessor, 5.5 inches with a ratio of 16: 9. Take a look at this comparison between the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T to see what has changed.

Both are very powerful. We see that both ride the all-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which is undoubtedly a chip capable of providing excellent results in the high-end. In the case of the Galaxy S8, maybe they are even better in the European variant with the Exynos 8895.

Special mention deserves the generous RAM of the OnePlus 5T, because we are talking about a “basic” version of 6 GB and a superior version of 8 GB. So you should offer smooth performance with this configuration. For its part, the Samsung remains in 4 GB, but the truth is that you do not need more to throw with what you throw.

The experience with the operating system does imply a clear difference between these two titans. The OnePlus 5T keeps the line of the firm, betting on Oxygen OS based on Android 7.1 Nougat, which will most likely update to Android Oreo at the beginning of 2018. On the other hand, the Galaxy S8 offers, as always, an Android experience with a lot of flavor to Samsung.

Oneplus prices and Samsung prices

Evidently Samsung is not exactly an economic brand, nor will it be. So it is not surprising that in terms of prices the Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 5T follow different strategies. It is clear that the difference is notorious, and that the Chinese firm has raised a bit its high range compared to the one launched just six months ago.

Also keep in mind that the Galaxy S8 is, along with Note 8, the best of Samsung; a device that complies with everything we ask and that hardly presents problems. The OnePlus 5T is still to be proven if it can also do so. In any case, both can boast of having specifications worthy of the high range. Which one do you prefer?
