With both Samsung and One Plus soon to launch their latest products, it is time to see how these two matches up to each other. Both these phones are similar in so many ways yet, each comes with its own unique features which provide them with an advantage over the other one. Let’s take a closer look at the two shall we?
A closer look at both the gadgets
Both the S9 and One plus5t comes with Octa core, but the One Plus 5t comes with 5.5 inch screen whereas Samsung’s S9 comes with 6.2 Inch screen, making it the bigger of the two. But what it lacks for in screen size, the One plus 5t more than makes up for it with its ample storage space of 128 GB whereas S9 only features 64 GB internal storage. The other good point about one plus 5t is that it comes with a 16 MP camera whereas S9 comes with a 12 MP camera. Chances are that you won’t spot the difference but let’s just say that the one plus 5t comes with a better camera which can help you shoot the perfect picture. Samsung’s S9 comes with 6GB ram and one plus 5t come with 8 GB ram which means that one plus 5t is slightly faster than its Samsung counterpart.
Both the phone comes loaded with special features; Samsung’s S9 comes with a fingerprint sensor positioned at the back whereas with one plus 5t, it is positioned at the front. It is a good thing that both these instruments comes with added security in the form of fingerprint sensors. Apart from these, both the phones come with light sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope but S9 comes loaded wit additional features such as RGBW sensor, and barometer.
One plus 5t contains 3300 mAh battery and S9, 3500 mAH battery – essentially which means that Samsung can last for a little bit longer. The good news is that both these instruments can be charged real quickly, and the one plus 5t runs on Android (nougat) whereas S9 works on Android Oreo. Both these phones are dual sim compatible which means that you can use two sim cards with either instrument at any time. More to the point, both the instruments are compatible with all indian bands, and you can change your preferences from 3G to 4G, as per your preference.
One of the downsides to most smartphones is that they often fail to live up to the hype when it comes to media. But thankfully, that’s not the case with either S9 or One plus 5t.Both the instruments have the requisite power and storage space to play any media file, seamlessly and even enable you to shoot and share the same with others in real time.
The audio on both these phones is really good and both feature a 3.5mm audio jack as well. Both the phones come with dual cameras and while you can expand the internal storage in Samsung’s S8 to 400GB, you cannot do the same with One plus 5t which is a downer.
One plus 5t features Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 which makes it quite fast, but S9, which is equally fast features Octa core (2.7 GHz, Quad core, M2 Mongoose + 1.7 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53). But for what it’s worth, when it comes to processor speed the S9 is actually 14% faster than One plus 5t, which should provide you with enhanced user experience. But as One plus comes with better Ram, you should be able to run more apps in the background, than you can on S9.
Both these instruments come with an aluminum casing, with the S9 being slightly thicker than one plus 5t. While one plus 5t seems to be available only in midnight black and slate grey, S9 comes with better color options, from midnight black, Coral blue to Lilac purple. The S9 certainly has a more attractive look to it, and definitely outshines One plus 5t in this department.
Cost: One plus 5t is tagged at 37999 INR but S9 is the more expensive of the two, at 64900 INR.
