iPhone 6 vs OnePlus One: The Hyped Smartphone Overshadows The Perfect One
Samsung supporter? Galaxy Note 4 has been launched this week!
iPhone fanatic? iPhone 6 is being released today!
Sony maniac? The Xperia Z3 is in the oven!
However, if you think the world ends at these few mobile companies, you are wronged. The big names have undoubtedly changed our lives, but then does everything last forever? Digging its way up to the fan-girling geeks, who don’t stay loyal to a brand if they find greater specs in another brand’s smartphone, is the OnePlus One.
Not earning the recognition this perfection of a phone deserves, the OnePlus One is struggling for establishing its name, though it is too early to judge anything, what with the iPhones and Galaxy Notes being introduced everyday these days.
One catch about this slow market penetration is also OnePlus One’s policy of being able to buy a phone only if you have been invited by a One user himself. That’s exactly why I am still devoid of this affordable and amazing phone.
Is the hype regarding iPhone 6 much justified compared to the features OnePlus One is offering? Here’s a look at the comparison between the two:
iPhone 6 is to come with two variants, 4.7in, and 5.5in – the
iPhone 6L iPhone 6 Plus. The screen has a 960 x 1704 display, which amounts to about 356 PPI. Though this is an improvement in the resolution, compared to the previous iPhone models, it still does not surpass OnePlus One’s 1080 x 1920 panel with 401 PPI.
Coming to the screen protection, however, iPhone 6 takes the lead with a Sapphire glass display, whereas OnePlus One comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen.
Apparently, iPhone 6 is sporting a pretty spectacular Apple A8 quad-core processor running at 2.6 GHz. On the other hand, the OnePlus One has a powerful CPU as well, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core, ticking at 2.5 GHz. Which one takes the lead here? That’s hard to state at the moment until the official specs of iPhone 6 are disclosed today.
iPhone 6 is equipped with 2GB of RAM with four versions of internal storage at 16/32/64/128GB available. However, OnePlus comes with 3GB RAM and 16GB and 64GB models. None of them supports a microSD card slot.
The iPhone has its standard 8MP rear camera, with a 2.1 MP front camera, whereas the OnePlus One wins this with its 13MP primary shooter and a 5MP rear camera.
iPhone 6 comes with an impressive Li-Po 2,915 mAh battery (only the large model), but OnePlus One goes an extra mile even in this feature, with a Li-Po 3,100 mAh battery.
One thing to keep in view is the users’ operating system preference. Actually, that is the crux of the whole consumer behavior in smartphones and smart devices. The iPhone 6 will run on the upcoming iOS 8, which has numerous new features like Healthkit, Homekit and a new mobile payment system, allowing you to make purchases directly with your iPhone 6.
The OnePlus One runs on the Android-based CyanogenMod 11S operating system, which is also open to a lot of changes because it is an open source version of Android that slips away from the grasp of Google.
iPhone 6 is obviously priced ludicrously, where though the exact price is not confirmed, a guess of around $800 – $1200 is expected. One of the best qualities of the OnePlus One is its price – with the 16GB model priced at $300 and the 64GB model at $350!
You see why I have been drooling on this phone all along, now?
