With the introduction of the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus is trying to make a big statement in the very competitive Android market. One of its biggest competitors is the recently announced Pixel 3 XL, so let’s compare the two.

The OnePlus 6 was already a fantastic smartphone with a super competitive price tag. The OnePlus 6T is even better. Now, it has a smaller notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner to go along with the 6.4-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, available 8GB of RAM and 16MP dual camera. It is one of the most appealing Android flagships right now.

The Pixel 3 XL is a big step forward for Google’s Pixel line that is unequivocally its best phone ever. The 6.3-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor and market-leading 12MP camera give it a resounding argument for being the best Android smartphone.

The two devices exchange blows in other categories such as the memory discrepancy (8GB vs. 4GB) and wireless charging capability (the OnePlus 6T doesn’t have it), but overall, the battle is quite competitive, especially when pricing is considered.

Check out the spec comparison down below and decide which is the better Android flagship.
