OnePlus 3 can be called a newcomes when it comes to smartphone industry, and it already rivals one of the best devices on the market, the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Upon running a speed test on both phones, it was obvious that the OnePlus 3 moves definitely faster than the Edge device. In the first lap, the OnePlus 3 finished in 1:31 seconds, while Edge took 1:41. The second round showed Samsung taking 2:17 and OnePlus 3 with 1:57.
One common spec of both phones is the size. They include the same display, an AMOLED one that measures 5.5 inches. However, Edge includes a Super AMOLED technology, so you could say it wins this round, while OnePlus 3 uses an earlier version. OnePlus 3 also appears to be heavier and larger than the Samsung device. They both include fingerprint sensors, which is a great technology that enables you to unlock it faster and to make mobile payments in a more secure way.
The American version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has internal specifications similar to the OnePlus 3: a Snapdragon 820 processor and a Adreno 250 GPU. They both include a Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, NFC, GPS. The USB connection differs though: while S7 Edge works with v 2.0 microUSB, OnePlus 3 goes for a Type-C USB port.
But the actual difference between the two devices is in fact the price. OnePlus 3 costs around $400, which is decent, while Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is reported to reach $800, double than the price of the first. However, many people are still torn between deciding to buy one phone or the other, and this is easy to understand because they are both excellent phones.
