OnePlus 6 vs Pixel 2: Which Phone has the Best Stock Experience?

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

For a long time it was only Google's hardware offerings that could offer a stable and pure stock Android experience but for the past couple of years one plus I started to see some of that market with their flagship phones and most people agree that oxygen OS is the

Closest thing you can get to a stable and pure stock Android experience and I've personally never had a better software experience besides a nexus or pixel phone since one Pleasants into the game so if you're looking for the best

Software experience on a high-end flagship then between the 1 plus 6 and the pixel to excel which is the best phone to buy starting with the experience and stability the pixel 2 has its own unique set of features that make

It a pretty compelling Android phone not just some bland featureless AOSP phone we've got the squeeze functionality that allows you to activate Google Assistant when you squeeze the phone as well as a bunch of other gesture-based features so

The pixel 2 isn't what you call a feature pack phone but between the squeeze functionality and the always listening music feature you've got yourself a pretty unique and compelling Android device as far as stability goes

I've never had an issue with my pixel 2 apps run flawlessly games are smooth and overall you can tell I'm using this phone that Google has put in the time to make sure you have the most stable experience possible the oneplus 6 has a

Bit more going for it overall than the pixel 2 in terms of features as there are far more options to play with in the settings you can customize the navigation experience using either traditional navbar buttons or gesture

Based navigation which gives you more screen real estate you have off screen gestures which allows you to do like the V gesture for the flashlight the O gesture for the camera M for music or you can select those gestures to open

Applications you can also do a bunch of different gestures like three-finger screen shot you can use the fingerprint reader to take pictures and when you're in the camera app just a bunch of different stuff like that

You've also got some gaming mode features in the advanced menu which gives you a more immersive experience things like answering calls on speaker mode automatically just handy little things like that stuff that Google

Phones like the pixel or Nexus devices have never had so far so overall it's a far more interesting device in terms of software as the pixel 2 is pretty stable but the oneplus 6 just has far more interesting options for you to get into

And in the past one-plus hasn't had the most stable software experience with their devices but I'd say since the 3t they really perfected their software formula I've never had any issue with software since no lag no

Hiccups just a really smooth everyday experience next with updates and support the pixel two of course is more or less the reigning champion as Google owns Android of course the pixel devices are pretty much always the first to get the

Latest version of Android while there have been a couple of instances in the past where a third-party Android device has received an update before a specific pixel or Nexus phone most of the time you can be pretty sure that your pixel

Phone is going to get Android before any other devices do so if you're someone who always has to be first in line for that update then at least compared to 1 plus phone these pixel phones are always the way to go oneplus is very adamant

About making sure they get their updates to consumers in a timely manner but that usually means you're waiting a few months we could have to make sure it's smooth it's stable there are no major bugs it's ready for people to daily

Drive now they're typically betas that you can download well before the official release they give you that same experience but of course oneplus doesn't recommend that you daily drive them as they are not a hundred percent ready

Whereas the pixel phones you pretty much get the update immediately as soon as a new version of and released and you're good to go now oneplus really doesn't have the best time releasing updates in the past is I can recall at least one

Time where they've had to essentially recall an update because of a major bug or exploit but in terms of getting out updates faster that might be changing because as you guys might know Google worked with oneplus to get a Developer

Preview out of Android pee for the one plus six so that could mean that we could be getting our betas and official releases much faster going forward so that's a promising sign but the pixel two takes the cake in terms of updates

And support now when it comes to special parts the pixel to once again has the oneplus 6 beat with the most notable perk being the pixel visual core and this is why the snapchat and Instagram sucks on Android argument doesn't really

Apply to the pixel two here because using the visual core it will actually use this processor to process a good-looking image as opposed to any other Android phone where it basically takes a screenshot of the viewfinder

Which really sucks so yeah some people take their IG and snapchat a hello seriously and knowing this about the pixel two might make much some people completely disregard ly one plus six now here's Willie one plus six has the

Biggest advantage over the pixel two and that's the price the one plus six is a five hundred $30 phone and the pixel two is a 650 phone with the Excel variant costing 850 dollars the pixel to has the best

Smartphone camera better application support and you get the latest version of Android more or less the minute it's released with the one plus six you're getting a cheaper price with a higher storage capacity you're getting more

Customization and features out of the box and you get – charging which is honestly amazing now if you don't care about – charging or having the best smartphone camera and you want to focus purely on software perks even then it's

Still a bit of a toss-up but if we're focusing purely on software I'm gonna go with the oneplus six but for a better overall phone than the pixel – but then again if you're making this decision it's up to you so that's pretty much it
