OnePlus 5 vs Xiaomi Mi 6: Two Fantastic Chinese Flagships Fight For Your Attention
When the specifications of the OnePlus 5 first surfaced, the smartphone instantly caught the attention of the industry. Here is a device from China that seems to be better than any smartphone in existence even the Samsung Galaxy S8. On the other hand, we have the Xiaomi Mi 6, another premium smartphone also worthy of one's interest. Now the question that begs to be answered is, "which smartphone is better?"
For starters, both the OnePlus 5 and Xiaomi Mi 6 are smartphones made by Chinese companies. Both are powered by Qualcomm's 2.45GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and at least 64GB of internal storage. Both run on Android 7.1 operating system out of the box.
The two smartphones supposedly have 12-megapixel dual cameras and 8-megapixel front shooters. The Verge reported that OnePlus has struck a partnership with DxO to work on its cameras. DxO is known in the industry for its expert reviews, benchmark tests and ratings of smartphone cameras. This move clearly shows that OnePlus is serious when it comes to its cameras and the likelihood of the OnePlus 5 getting better camera features than what is rumored is now pretty high. As a matter of fact, some rumors say that the OnePlus 5 will have dual cameras at both the front and rear while others indicate that it will have a 16mp front-facing camera and a 23-mp rear one.
There are quite a number of other factors that sets the OnePlus 5 apart. It has a bigger screen with better resolution with a 5.5-inch display with a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560 as compared to the Mi 6's 5.15-inch 1080 x 1920 pixel display. The OnePlus 5 also has 8GB of RAM which will allow it to perform better and run faster than the Xiaomi Mi 6 which comes with only 6GB of RAM. The OnePlus flagship also has a slightly bigger battery at 3580mAh while the Mi 6 has a 3350mAh battery. Additionally, the OnePlus 5 has the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
With better specs come higher price tags. The OnePlus 5 is rumored to cost somewhere around $500 to $650 which is remarkably cheaper than other smartphones with the same or even lesser specifications. The base model of the Xiaomi Mi 6, meanwhile, has a $360 price tag.
