OnePlus X vs Samsung Galaxy S6: Surprising Results

By  | 

We’ve got a good one for you today. It’s the battle between the OnePlus X and Samsung Galaxy S6. Which do you think would knock against the other?

The Galaxy S6 has the specifications and price to match. The OnePlus X is OnePlus’ newest device, but definitely priced as an entry-level smartphone, but it does have a Full HD AMOLED display and 3GB of RAM and expandable internal memory. It is as if OnePlus took some old parts (32-bit Snapdragon 801 processor), added some more mid-range specs, and priced it at an incredible $249.

In terms of build quality, both devices are actually top-notch, although the metal and glass Galaxy S6 is a tad more elegant looking. How does the $249 OnePlus X stack up to the $575 Galaxy S6? Let’s take a look at what these two devices might have in common before we dissect the individual devices.

For starters, the Galaxy S6 and OnePlus X are physically the same size and weight. One factor that contributes to this is the 5.1-inch display on the Galaxy S6 and the 5.0-inch display on the OnePlus X. While they are both AMOLED displays, they sport different resolutions – QHD on the S6 and FHD on the OnePlus X. Both devices had 3GB of RAM, although their base internal storage is different.

Their cameras come in close as well, but the Galaxy S6 will blow the OnePlus X away. They both have some of the usual suspects – WiFi, Bluetooth (v4.1 in the S6 and v4.0 on the OnePlus X), GPS and a microUSB v2.0 plug for charging and data transfer. One item that is conspicuously missing from the OnePlus X is NFC capability. The Galaxy S6 and the OnePlus X also have non-removable batteries – 2550 mAh in the S6 and 2525 mAh in the OnePlus X.

So, would you know by now which phone is the ultimate winner?
