Here's Why The OnePlus 5 May Also Be Called The "Galaxy KIller"
Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus may be the most talked about smartphones right now, but it doesn't mean these are the only flagships worth keeping tabs on. Looking on the other side of the fence, there are several upcoming devices this year, like the OnePlus 5 which was dubbed not so long ago as the "iPhone Killer." With that being said, and the leaks and information gathered about the said device, it may also possibly be called as the "Galaxy Killer" as well.
3 Reasons Why The OnePlus 5 Could Be A Galaxy Killer
As reported by an article at Science Times, first reason, though the Galaxy S8 is expected to feature 4 GB of RAM, the OnePlus 5 will have 6 GB of RAM (other reports even suggest that it could reach up to 8 GB). Second, the Samsung's flagship will have a 16 MP rear camera with 4k video recording and a 12 MP front camera. Meanwhile, the other device will have a 25 MP rear camera with a 12 MP secondary lens at its back and a 8 MP front camera.
The third biggest reason is the price, something that most people will consider, unless if you're filthy rich who doesn't care about prices that much or a hardcore tech enthusiast. The Galaxy phones are pricey, and both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus won't be any different at all. However, Samsung has backed that up by giving their devices high-end specs that guarantee premium quality and performance - except for the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco which really tarnished their tech prowess.
Meanwhile, what made OnePlus smartphones popular and sought after by many tech enthusiasts and consumers is the company's consistency in undercutting the opposition when it comes to offering a premium experience for a shoestring price. Take the OnePlus 3T for example, it's a high-end device that offers a premium experience which originally hit the UK shores for £309 before a £20 Brexit pump kicked in.
In fact, an article at IB Times suggests that the company might possibly put the OnePlus 5's price range under £400. And even if it does go above that price range, it would still be a reasonable outlay considering the competition.
