It's an interesting turn of events watching two Flagship smartphones coming face-to-face with each other. Over here, the Oneplus 5 is being pitted against Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus. There are a lot of similarities and differences between the two. For instance, both the smartphones are powered by the same chip – but Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus has a much larger display than the latter. At the same time, the OnePlus 5 smartphone packs a dual rear camera system, as opposed to what the latter packs, i.e. a single rear camera system. Let's take a look at the pros and cons of both the smartphones.

OnePlus vs Samsung

Starting off with OnePlus 5, the smartphone was perhaps, the most awaited flagship device of 2017. After the launch, however, the device faced immense criticism for sharing similarities with the iPhone 7 Plus smartphone. Despite that, there were many buyers for the device. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip and Adreno 540 for graphics. The OnePlus 5 smartphone comes in two storage options, namely 6GB of RAM/64GB of ROM and 8GB of RAM/128GB of ROM. Like mentioned previously, the device sports a dual rear camera set-up with a 16MP and 20MP sensor complemented by f/1.7 aperture and f/2.6 telephoto lens.

The smartphone is powered by a 3,300mAh battery based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus, on the other hand, features a 6.2-inch Infinity Display with Super AMOLED WQHD+ (2,960 x 1,440 pixels resolution) and an added layer of Corning's Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC and offers 4GB of RAM alongside 64GB of internal storage. The Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone further includes a 12MP rear sensor with Dual-Pixels alongside an 8MP front shooter as well.

S8 powered by Bixby

Both the smartphones come along with their strengths and drawbacks. However, the main thing that needs to be considered at this time and age is innovation. Which smartphone managed to showcase innovation? Samsung introduced Infinity Display, Bixby's digital voice assistant, DeX dock and other such specifications.

But, at the same time, even OnePlus managed to bring the dual rear camera system and a mouth-watering price-tag to the table. It can get difficult to choose but, this time, it appears that the consumers must go ahead with Samsung, given the quality that it promises to deliver to its customers. However, if you're looking a the price, then you should obviously settle for OnePlus 5.
