Now that the iPhone XS has been announced, we thought we’d pit it against one of the more impressive smartphones available right now. It’d be easy to compare against Samsung’s flagships, which we did, but we also wanted to see how it compares against another underrated phone: the OnePlus 6.
The two phones fall on opposite ends of the spectrum. The iPhone XS is uber premium, with an expensive price tag. The OnePlus 6 comes close to match Apple’s level of premium while significantly undercutting the iPhone XS’ price tag. Selecting which phone is better is kind of complicated since it all comes down to what you value in a smartphone. We’re not deciding just yet, but you can.
Check out the spec comparison down below to decide if twice the price really gets you twice the smartphone.
