OnePlus 5 vs Google Pixel XL: Two of our favorite phones, compared

by birtanpublished on September 12, 2020

We're the release of v1 plus v one plus is looking to continue their attempts at killing other flagships when compared to the Google pixel X L is the five that much better or is it better at all so when you compare these two on paper there's no question the five has the

Excel locks down the younger phone sports being newer fresher specs sheet complete with the snapdragon 835 either six or eight gigabytes of RAM Bluetooth 5.0 and dual rear cameras the XL does have the higher res display and the

Larger battery but to be honest the 1080p display on the five still looks great and it also supports a wider range of color in terms of design both are extremely simple nothing flashy and they both got their share of hatred towards

How they look large bezels big Chin's big foreheads and either came with anything that really separated them from the rest of the phones out there style wise the XL came out last year and Google didn't really have all the time

In the world to design the phone and we're already getting glimpses of what the next-gen version will look like so at least it's got those excuses but the five came out not too long ago and I think most people were hoping for

Something more futuristic due to the size of oneplus as a manufacturer however they weren't exactly able to pull that off but I'm sure as time goes on they'll get there but to be honest as you start using these phones the design

Sort of disappears and the user experience begins to take over and speaking of user experience both of these phones are absolute experts at delivering a great one they're both smooth they both handle daily tasks

Very easily but the 1+5 is without a doubt the snappier of the two it just feels quicker on its feet so to speak that's not to say that the XL is slow however it can still hold its own and it hasn't been left in the dust or anything

Like that and in fact I find the XL to be more on the smoother side of things but in terms of overall speed the v has the excel beat charging is a perfect example of that thanks to – charge the XL does have its own fast charging

Capabilities but it's definitely not as fast as oneplus is – charge this speed continues with the 5s fingerprint reader and it's one of the fastest and one of the most accurate ones on the market and that's not to take anything away from

The xl's reader it's accurate as well and with both I really find myself having to reposition due to a miss read they are both great really one of the few things that the XL does faster than the 1+5 is run

Of battery although the Excel has the larger battery it also has the higher res display along with the less efficient Snapdragon 820 one processor I get around four to five hours of screen on time with Excel whereas with the five

I get about five to six sometimes even six and a half to seven hours of screen on time now the software experience with both of these phones is somewhat similar with the Excel running peer stock Android 7.1.2 and the five not too far

Behind running 7.1.1 underneath oxygen OS oxygen OS of course being a near stock version of Android with some neat tweaks like UI customization screen off gestures display color profiles and just little things here and there to sweeten

Up the experience a bit however Android enthusiasts would probably go for the pixel because it runs true pure stock Android and the latest versions are always going to come to pixel devices first and will continue

To do so for a good long time can't really say the same for oneplus phones unfortunately as for the cameras well this is an easy one the pixel in my eyes at least still has the best camera on a smartphone if not top three if I'm going

Somewhere where I know I'll be taking pictures the s cell is the phone I'm taking with me nine and a half out of ten times the 5s camera is nothing to sneeze at though oneplus is very very proud of its dual lens setup on the back

And I gotta say it really does take some nice looking shots and with this dual lens setup oneplus included portrait mode to help you get that bokeh effect and it's honestly not a deciding factor but it is something really cool to just

Mess around with over all the five shows that it's not just the premium price phones that can take great shots but if I had to choose a winner excel all day so to sum things up I'd still choose the excel to be my daily driver pure stock

Android with faster updates I prefer its fingerprint reader placement the higher res display and especially at camera but it's the one plus five I recommend to buyers it's newer and has better specs better

Battery life it still has a solid camera it's got the more customizable OS and has that alert slider it's faster in pretty much every way and most importantly it's cheaper the baseline model can be grabbed for under 500 bucks

And I have to say all things considered b5 is the better option so while the five still hasn't flattened to any competition much less the first gen XL it shows that it can definitely hang with the big boys while staying below

That 500 mark so what do you guys think of the pixel XL versus the 1 + 5 let us know your thoughts down below in the comments as always we would love to hear your feedback anyway that does it for me I
