The conditions of the comparison
Both phones are updated to the latest software version. In the video you can see that it refers to the iPhone X run in iOS 11 and the OnePlus 5T in Android 7.1.1 Nougatas there is no official version of Oreo for the device yet.
For the comparison process, geekbench performance tests, opening the camera, browsing social networks, opening games and RAM management have been performed. With all this, it is intended to see which phone is faster.
OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X: who wins?
The first test are those of geekbench, which puts both processors face to face. Here the iPhone X boasts better hardware and therefore achieves a higher score. In this sense we speak of raw power, and it remains to be seen how that translates to daily use.
The second test is launch the camera of both devices using the fastest method with the screen locked. By little, but the iPhone X wins with its double touch of the screen over the double press of the OnePlus Power button.
The third test consists of open applications without having any active in the background. Twitter, Instagram, YouTube… open earlier on the OnePlus 5T. Facebook Pages, Angry Birds 2, Super Mario Run, Sonic Dash … open earlier on the iPhone X. The pattern is obvious: games open earlier on the iPhone X, which handles 3D graphics better, but the rest of the apps open somewhat earlier on the OnePlus 5T.
However, it is in the RAM management that the OnePlus 5T is positioned as the leader. With 8 GB of RAM, better background handling is to be expected, something in which it easily defeats the iPhone X, which is forced to reload almost all the apps that were in the background. The 5T just opens them where they were.
A competitive battle
The truth is that a clear winner is not established in this comparison. The iPhone X has better hardware, but the OnePlus 5T has better RAM. The iPhone X handles games better, but the OnePlus 5T the most common applications. At many levels it can be considered a technical draw… if we don’t take the price into account.
A OnePlus 5T costs half that of an iPhone X and the results are not so mixed. For the same cost, we would speak of a tie. For that price difference, it seems fair to say that the OnePlus 5T is the winner of this competitive battle.
