OnePlus 5 vs OnePlus 3: What Is The Difference?
OnePlus, a well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer is back with its most anticipated mobile device yet, the OnePlus 5. The next flagship killer is very popular and in fact, it has been stealing headlines over the past weeks. Even though not all details are confirmed yet, some have been officially confirmed by the company.
The OnePlus 5 smartphone is arriving a year after the OnePlus 3. Now, the question is, how much has improved after a year? Here is how the new OnePlus 5 compares to the existing OnePlus 3.
The focus of the physical design of OnePlus 5 is clearly inspired by the current 3 and 3T smartphone, according to Android Central. The changes are really indistinguishable, especially the front parts of the devices. Around the sides and back, the flagship mobile device has softer corners and a slimmer outline. Aside from that, lesser obvious antenna lines are applied.
The look of the OnePlus 5 is a little more compact and ergonomic compared to OnePlus 3. This, of course, includes the new look because of the dual camera lens that gives the back part a very different look.
The OnePlus 5 runs the Snapdragon 835, a more well-functioning chip compared to the Snapdragon 820 of OnePlus 3. The newest Qualcomm chip is really fast, but the very significant difference that is noticeable in Snapdragon 835 devices so far is its power efficiency.
In line with the better specs and chip of the OnePlus 5, this also means that the new flagship smartphone is also better than the OnePlus 3 when it comes to battery performance. However, according to Pocket-Lint, the OnePlus 3T has a larger battery compared to OnePlus 5 with a 3400mAh range.
The OnePlus 5 ships on OxygenOS, a modified version of Google Android based on Nougat 7.1.1. On the other hand, the OnePlus 3 also run on OxygenOS, which means the software experience of the two smartphones should be pretty similar. However, take note that there are some new features on the OnePlus 5 so that it will be better compared to its predecessor.
