Galaxy S8 vs OnePlus 5: Which Is A Killer Smartphone?
Both the Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 5 are expected this year. However, so far, only Samsung's phone has an assured launch date. OnePlus is yet to confirm when its next flagship will be showcased. Nevertheless, these two brands have been constant rivals of each other in the previous years, and there's no doubt that this year won't be any different. Here's what's known about these two phones so far.
OnePlus 5 And Samsung Galaxy S8 Overview
According to ZDNET, the Galaxy S8 will come in two curved models. There will be a regular Galaxy S8 and there will be a bigger Galaxy S8 Plus. So far things look good about the Galaxy S8 series. The fact that it will come with curved screens means that it will be a very premium flagship. It was also said that this phone will have no home button and it will come with slimmer bezels and an iris scanner. All these say is that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will both be sophisticated and high-end.
The OnePlus 5, on the other hand, may come with a more modest look. Although there is no solid news about OnePlus' upcoming flagship, it's pretty certain that the company won't go overboard when it comes to OnePlus 5's physical appearance, at least based on past releases. What's certain, however, is that OnePlus will still beat its expensive rivals when it comes to internal specs.
OnePlus 5 And Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs
Basing on past OnePlus phones, it's pretty clear that this brand is keen in releasing low-priced phones with high-end internals. The OnePlus 3T boasted of 6 GB RAM while the Samsung flagship phones from that season only had 4 GB RAM. This incident may be repeated this year. As per Phone Arena, the Galaxy S8 may be offered in 6 GB RAM variants in certain markets. With that said, there's good chance that OnePlus may fight back with an even higher RAM size.
Rumor has it that the OnePlus 5 could come with 8 GB RAM. This makes sense considering that a boost in memory is pretty much a given fact in every smartphone cycle. Nevertheless, there could always be some drawbacks considering the fact that the OnePlus 5 can be launched with a price tag of just around $500. Needless to say, among all flagships for 2017, the OnePlus 5 may be the most worth it financially.
