To be honest, I was already expecting the Oppo R9s Plus to win before I even began comparing them. For me, the OnePlus 3T felt so rushed and could have made major upgrades if the company waited for a year after the release of the OnePlus 3. But hey, who am I to judge? Anyway, this is my take between the Oppo R9s and the OnePlus 3T.
