The OnePlus 5 is the company's most powerful and successful device to date while Samsung's newly released device, the Galaxy S8, is one of the best-selling and powerful smartphones on the market right now, with top-of-the-line tech and plenty of perks. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus is amicably Apple's most outstanding and best smartphone to date.

Powered by 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and backed up with 8GB of RAM and packs 64GB or 128GB on the pricier OnePlus 5 model.

Announced as the first smartphone certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium, it sports a 12-megapixel dual pixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and 8-megapixel front camera with autofocus.

In many ways, these high-end smartphones are arguably powerful. Each has perks that the other does not offer. The OnePlus 5 has an upper hand over Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 Plus since it offers a larger 128GB storage, more 8GB ram and as previous reports said, it won as the fastest charging smartphone over its biggest rival, the Galaxy S8, and dethroned Apple iPhone 7 as the fastest phone, Express reported.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is water resistant, has a larger screen, wireless charging, and better display, plus a Samsung Dex. While the Apple iPhone 7 Plus offers the most impressive camera, a decent RAM and sticks to the basics and that's great for most users. However, it all boils down to the price, which plays a major role in the whole comparison. Clearly, OnePlus 5 comes with a much practical price yet still powerful enough to truly take on Samsung S8 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
