OnePlus 3 vs Galaxy S7 spec shootout

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is easily one of the best Android smartphones on the market right now. Off contract, you’re looking at spending more than $600 for the Galaxy S7. The OnePlus 3 comes in far below that, with a price tag at $399 completely unlocked.

The OnePlus 3 features some of the same compelling specs, including a Snapdragon 820 processor, and even bests the Galaxy S7 with 6GB of RAM. Of course, Samsung’s smartphone has a Quad HD, a microSD card slot, an IP68 water-resistance rating, wireless charging and more.

So, on paper, does the OnePlus 3 really kill this Galaxy S7? Tough call. Check out the specs below and you decide.
