Apple launched their new iPhone this week. Actually, they launched two versions, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Immediately, Android manufacturers and fans made it clear that Apple was a little late to the game, and now, the self proclaimed Android ‘flagship killer’ has taken their shot, here is the photo that OnePlus put together.
“Hey Apple, welcome to the “PLUS” family!”
We’ve already taken a quick look at the new iPhone 6 models vs the best of Android, revealing that the LG G3 and the OnePlus One share the same display size as the iPhone 6 Plus at 5.5-inches. What better to work from for comparison then.
The OnePlus One has been available for some months now, but still feels like it is in the midst of rolling out, what with it’s invite system and social media campaigns. The iPhone 6 is announced and should start shipping to users in the coming weeks. Let’s see what similarities there are between these two devices.
iPhone 6 Plus vs OnePlus One
Apple iPhone 6 Plus
|Display||5.5-inch 1920×1080 LCD||5.5-inch 1920×1080 LCD|
|Processor and RAM||A8, 1400MHz, Dual-core with 1GB of RAM||Snapdragon 801, 2500MHz, Quad-core with 3GB of RAM|
|Camera||8MP with OIS||13MP|
We’ve seen these sorts of comparisons before, usually pitting the OnePlus One against the flagship Android devices that it was designed to compete with. As we walk through one spec after the next, similarities present themselves. As they should, considering the exact same parts were used to produce the One and many Android flagships.
Apple, on the other hand, uses different parts than many Android devices. While we’ll have to wait to see the iPhone in action, as their 64-bit architecture and OS optimization promises to produce the same, or better, overall performance than typical Android powered devices with quad-core processors and 2 or 3GB of RAM.
Let’s close out with the clincher that has been true in almost every OnePlus One comparison, storage space and price.
iPhone 6 Plus vs OnePlus One Price
Apple iPhone 6 Plus
|16GB||$299 with carrier contract, $749 without contract||$299 no contract|
|64GB||$399 with contract, $849 without contract||$349 no contract|
|128GB||$499 with contract, $949 without contract||n/a|
Apple will offer the iPhone 6 models with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB version and the OnePlus One is also available with 64GB for $349. The kicker here is the need for a contract to get the iPhone.
There you have it, OnePlus is happy to welcome, or mock, Apple for finally making it to the “Plus” game. What do you think, which Plus is the better phone?
