If you are looking for a smartphone and you don’t know what to choose, it might have crossed your mind to go for the OnePlus. Or should it be the Nexus 5X? Hard decision. But let’s see which one is better.
When it comes to the display, Nexus offers a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels on a 5.2 inches screen (which means 424 ppi if you do the math). On the other hand, OnePlus has a 5.5 inches screen and the same resolution as the Nexus, which means a smaller ppi. If you need a large screen, you should definitely choose the OnePlus 3.
There are people who favor lighter smartphones, and in this case the 5X is totally a winner, with 136 grams, as compared to the 158 grams of the OnePlus 3.
Nexus 5X comes together with 16 GB internal storage, plus 2 GB RAM. On the other hand, OnePlus 3 offers 64 internal GB, though in some places you can buy a 32 GB version, and 6 GB of RAM, being definitely the winner of this section.
OnePlus has the bigger battery between the two, with 3000 mAh, and the Nexus has only 2700 mAh. Google has done a great job with the 12 MP camera of the Nexus (and a frontal one of 5 MP). Meanwhile, OnePlus comes with a 16 MP camera, so definitely better, and 8 MP for selfies.
Both phones work on Android Marshamallow, which is the latest version. Nexus runs on a Snapdragon 808 processor, while OnePlus has a Snapdragon 820, a similar one. But if you think about the price, you should know that the Nexus is more affordable, costing almost $380, while OnePlus costs almost $400.
