OnePlus 7T vs iPhone 11 – Which One is Better?
Where the OnePlus 7T Wins
Both phones trade blows with each other and while the OnePlus 7T trumps the iPhone 11 in some areas, the latter trumps it in a few. The OnePlus 7T comes with a superior OLED display which also has a higher refresh rate. The iPhone 11’s Liquid Retina display simply pales in comparison to it. The OnePlus 7T also comes with faster 4×4 MIMO support while the iPhone 11 only supports 2×2 MIMO. This means the OnePlus 7T will offer faster download speeds over LTE as well as better network reception in patchy areas.
The OnePlus 7T also puts the iPhone 11 to shame in the storage and RAM department. The base variant of the phone comes with twice the amount of RAM and storage as the iPhone 11. The latter’s 64GB of storage is simply inadequate in this day and age and its disappointing to see Apple still ship iPhones with such a low amount of storage.
Where the iPhone 11 Wins
The iPhone 11 does pull ahead with Face ID, IP68 certification, and the inclusion of wireless charging. The OnePlus 7T does charge faster but the convenience factor of wireless charging cannot be undermined. The iPhone 11 also offers a better imaging experience than the OnePlus 7T despite coming with a dual-camera setup. The 12MP TrueDepth camera at the front also takes better selfies than the OnePlus 7T’s 16MP shooter.
What do you think about the OnePlus 7T? At $600, it definitely is a tempting choice over the iPhone 11 especially since OnePlus is known for quickly rolling out updates to its devices as well.
