OnePlus 5 vs OnePlus 3T: Two sides of the same coin?

by birtanpublished on September 14, 2020

Hey what's good guys it's Zack here with Android police taking a look at the ever-so-popular 1 + 3 t + 1 + is latest offering the 1 + 5 is the 5 that much better than the 3t and is it worth it let's start off with what we've got on paper and basically as always some

Numbers just get bigger you've got the newer snapdragon 835 processor the audrina 540 GPU there's now a variant with 8 yes 8 gigabytes of RAM that's more than a lot of people's computers bluetooth 5.0 you now have 2

Cameras on the back and of course a slightly higher price tag now while some numbers get bigger others get smaller for one the dimensions the 5 is ever so slightly thinner weighs about 5 grams lighter and the battery is smaller as

Well as 3,300 milliamps compared to the three T's 3400 milliamps aside from the curvier design which delivers a more comfortable feel in the hand improved microphones that do a camera setup and the fact that the 5 resembles another

High-end flagship the 5 and the 3 t do you have a lot in common they share the same exact five and a half inch 1080p AMOLED display same blazing-fast fingerprint reader with the 5s being a tad wider and a little more

Responsive same alert slider on the Left charging port speaker grille and headphone jack on the bottom same metal unibody frame which is still pretty slippery and prone to scratches but it's nothing a dbrand skin can't handle

However and there's still no ip68 rating sadly enough but in terms of design overall while I do prefer the feel of the 5 I actually prefer the looks of the 3t I don't know is that just me let me know oh and by the way that cheesy

Vibration motor was one of my biggest gripes for the 3t but in the 5 they updated it and it's much better now just thought I'd mentioned that on the software side of things we've got oxygen OS 4 point 5 point 1 on the 5 and 4

Point 1 point 6 on the 3t both running Android 7.1.1 on the 5 you do get some neat additions like a complete pro mode in the camera app giving you full control over the shots you take there's a new reading mode that calibrates the

Screen to better enhance your reading experience and basically the phone does its best impression of a kindle paperwhite there's this new scroll capture like feature called extended screenshot and basically this allows you

To take longer screenshots which is a welcomed feature and while the two phones share these screen the five does support dp3 color gamut which allows the display to show a wider range of colors compared to the

Other profiles and you've also got a couple differences in advanced settings like an OTG storage option a gaming do-not-disturb option and you also have the ability to choose your preferred Bluetooth audio codec if that's

Something you care about so aside from a few differences here and there there's no arguing these phones are very very similar they're both extremely smooth and blazing-fast in pretty much every aspect pouncing in

Between applications is smooth and the RAM management is very solid by the way keeping a bunch of apps in memory of course the fingerprint readers are among the fastest out there juicing up the phones with – charge is on another level

Being able to get a couple extra hours of usage after just half an hour of charging is great battery life is solid on both despite the 5 having the slightly smaller battery I get about 5 hours of screen on time consistently as

Of now anyway and scrolling swiping around and just using the phones in general is an awesome experience and it makes you wish more phones could be like this so yes the phones are similar we get

That until you start talking about the camera or cameras rather with a 5-1 + decided to join the dual lens setup family I will say that photos do look better than the ones taken with the 3t selfies included not to take anything

Away from the three T's camera it still takes nice shots but the 5s camera is just better now getting to that secondary telephoto lens this of course allows you to get closer to your subject without having to physically move closer

And you don't lose as much detail compared to zooming in and you also get this portrait mode which looks to keep your subject in focus while completely blurring out the background giving you that bokeh effect it works okay and at

This point I guess you can call it a gimmick so if I'm being honest here the 5 isn't a vast upgrade from the 3t it doesn't have wireless charging there's no ip68 rating nothing flashy like that but it does have the newer fresher

Hardware simply put if you already own a 3t you'll be ok if you hang on to it as of now it's not even a year old and it's still Specht out nicely enough to last a long time if you don't have either one

And you're trying to choose which one of these to get get to 5 starting price is only $40 more you get 2 new respects and the better camera it's still under 500 bucks and for this price really what phone can say it has

Six gigabytes of RAM the latest Snapdragon processor and a dual lens setup exactly these are both fantastic phones but overall I got to give the edge to the one plus five what do you guys think of the three T versus the
