OnePlus 6 this week went on sale in almost all major countries. This is a “budget smartphone-flagship”, and it costs almost half as much as the iPhone X. But will the OnePlus 6 outperform Apple’s flagship in speed, despite its low price?
As the AllApplePro speed test showed, the OnePlus 6 was faster than the iPhone X. In the first block of tests, the OnePlus 6 was a little slower than the iPhone X, but he managed to get ahead in video processing and downloading applications from RAM. OnePlus 6 can have up to 8GB of RAM, so it’s just a monster of multitasking, which can not be said about the iPhone X with 3GB of RAM.
However, in the application download, OnePlus 6 was faster in the case of Instagram, Snapchat and Google Maps. On the video, the difference seems to be quite insignificant, but in everyday use it will be felt.
In the benchmark, the OnePlus 6 processor was completely defeated by the iPhone X A11 Bionic processor. This can not be said about the test with a graphics processor, in which OnePlus 6 again broke out ahead due to the smaller screen resolution.
OnePlus 6 has its own facial recognition technology, but it works on the basis of one 16MP front camera. Because of this, the technology is not as secure as Apple’s Face ID, but it works much faster. The difference is so noticeable, but imagine how it will be felt when you unlock the smartphone dozens of times a day.
Surprisingly, despite the less powerful processor, OnePlus 6 was able to overtake the iPhone X in some tests. The multitasking test once again showed that Apple should start adding at least 4GB of RAM on the iPhone, so they work fine.
