The OnePlus 5 is finally here, bringing top-of-the-line specs and an ergonomic design. The flagship is poised to be a serious contender in the high-end smartphones space, which means it is directly challenging the Samsung Galaxy S8 to a game it does so well. So, how does it hold up against the current Android king?
OnePlus 5 Vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Specs
The Galaxy S8 debuted the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the most powerful chip today. To compete, OnePlus equipped the same chipset on its latest flagship and paired it with 6GB or 8GB RAM. With this combination, the smoothness and speed of OnePlus 5 is apparent, with The Guardian noting that it performs well or even better than other flagships.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 does not fall short in this regard, packing 4GB of RAM that is fairly enough for the smartphone. It is quite the powerhouse and the OnePlus 5 is a beast for being able to keep up with it.
