OnePlus 8 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: comparison



OnePlus 8 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: comparison


450$ it is the price difference that separates the price of the most “basic” model in the series Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, at a new price OnePlus 8 Pro. For that money you can buy a good phone like Google Pixel 3a XL or realme X2 Pro. But now you're here, you see the difference two phones are very expensive that are in place by the end of 2020, probably with a view to completing the use of over 1,000 euros by two companies questioning the best models in their catalog.

Because that idea is: possible comparisons, today, can be two of the most advanced Android phones available the top half of the last one, even if it is on paper, is very different from one another.

Big or big, you choose

Agree, there is no going back: high end software that is, and will continue to be, overused, at least until the wrap devices like the Z Flip deliver – when they do – and are able to deliver high-quality experiences with compact size.

And then that would be no different for the two phones considered for 2020. Both the Galaxy S20 Ultra and OnePlus 8 Pro They exceed 16.5 centimeters high, though Samsung's model exceeds the Chinese signal by 2 inches high by 2 inches wide, in addition to 0.3 mm.

If you want a compact high-end, you should look for alternatives.

That is not perfect: The Green S20 Ultra has become one of the most expensive games on the marketAt 226 grams, the OnePlus 8 Pro with its 199 grams almost looks like a lightweight cell phone. But that is not the case, and I'm afraid that if you want high-end computer size, you should look for alternatives.

Having said that, we also need to say, the fact of having a matte finish, added to the slimmer body, makes the OnePlus 8 Pro a much easier storage to handle and use than the Korean model, though its lower back makes it easier to get out of hand when using it. Either way, whatever mobile you buy, it's a good idea buy a good case.

The magic of 120 Hz

The fact that both protagonist models are in this role of comparing the fact that have screens with one of the highest refresh rates we've seen on mobile so far – with the permission of Nubia's Red Magic 5G and its non-144 Hz -. At 120 Hz, a feeling of fullness and smoothness when using high-end devices, and I'm afraid that anyone trying the terminal with this feature will have a hard time turning back.

And it will be so if you try any of these two types, because they are very likely to be facing the best screens installed on mobile both in terms of brightness, contrast, color rendering and reaction time. In fact, they are very similar screens in every way, to the extent that it makes it possible to choose one or the other based on their performance.

However, there is one factor that does the Galaxy S20 Ultra has more points than its rivals at this stage, and, ironically, the truth shedding with rear turns as proclaimed as those of the OnePlus 8 Pro, that in addition to the most modern beauty – in theory – it not only offers any definite value, but it can even be frustrating to some extent because it's a source of problems like accidentally affected

on the sides of a panel or in a particular color distribution.

Of course, the OnePlus 8 Pro also brings a clear, comparable advantage Use the screen for its biggest adjustment – the Quad HD + – in conjunction with its high refresh rate, something forbidden, a cellphone nearly 1,400 euros like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, doesn't allow.

Beyond that, it is fair to say that both channels have four a fingerprint reader built into your screen, even though the technology used by each brand is different. The Green S20 Ultra uses an ultrasonic sensor, which should on paper deliver a better result than the portable OnePlus 8 Pro reader, but in practice just a little bit faster, but more vague when it comes to opening.

Qualcomm> Exynos

When thousands of people have asked Samsung to stop using Exynos processors on their phones, that's why. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 OnePlus 8 Pro is superior to Samsung's model lift chip in terms of efficiency, which ultimately translates into better independence; and also depending on the ability to provide better performance without increasing the device temperature by certain degrees. The experiment had already shown us, when we compared two models of each face reference.

Otherwise, it is undeniable that we look at two monsters in terms of their professional class: 8 or 12 GB of RAM with 128 or 256 GB of OnePlus 8 Pro storage, and 12 or 16 GB
and 128 or 512 GB of S20 Ultra, in both cases using LPDDR5 and UFS 3.0 technologies respectively. We also received one of the kindest batteries, 4,510 mAh and 5,000 mAh – though there is no independent reference. OnePlus “should be blamed” on the 120Hz and Quad HD output, as well as its Galaxy S20 Ultra processor – compatible with two of the fastest charging technologies, as well as Qi wireless charging compatibility.

No model is a benchmark for independent variables.

But things change, and a lot, when it comes to software. One UI 2.1 it offers far more experiences of what we know as Android “stock” than it offers O oxygenOS. Generally, both customization layers provide a smooth operation, consistent design – very different from each other – and many useful functions and tools which we would not find in a forum with AOSP software without any additional type.

Both layers have their advantages and disadvantages, and I'm afraid that here one choice or another layer comes down to it personal preference. For me, by providing experience in the “cleaner” version of Android, and taking a better journey related to updates and support, O oxygenOS It's software that can bet my money on it.

What about cameras?

We come to the last section of this comparison, of photographic experience. Knowing both of these companies should not be difficult click which one will be the best camera tool two. No? After all, OnePlus is known for it decide in the photo segment of their cell phones to be able to offer better results elsewhere, while Samsung, even with its problems, has been able to stay in the fight against the best photographers throughout the years.

But surprisingly, the rules seem to have changed. This year, OnePlus 8 Pro is no longer offering Mediocre graphics results as previous product models, but in many scenes, device cameras are able to create great exposure, which comes more than in certain cases Samsung models. One picture costs a thousand words, and twenty images, or more:

In addition to the differences in the results provided by both cameras, it is worth noting that, since the launch, Galaxy S20 Ultra has trouble focusing through its massive 108 megapixel sensor. Also, the OnePlus night mode seems to offer a better result by capturing the information in low light conditions, and maintaining a white balance near the scene.

However, there are features there the Global S20 Ultra is clearly superior. It's a matter of selfies, where the OnePlus 8 Pro is certainly a pair when faced with the massive Galaxy S20 Ultra 40-megapixel front sensor; or at capture video. It also gives a better effect when taken images zoom up to 10x thanks to the periscope system it integrates into its large image module.

Price and where to buy it

Samsung, on the other hand, has somehow changed its desire to try to create the best phone in the market, to make mistakes -All regards to the category of images- which doesn't seem to fit in what should be the best Android smartphone of all 2020.

Obviously both are fantastic devices, each one with its advantages and disadvantages. However, there are many similarities between them that are the difference 450 euros The one I was talking about at the beginning of the comparison becomes very difficult to justify.
