The OnePlus 6

Chinese Smartphone Manufacturer OnePlus recently unveiled the OnePlus 6. The company is known for producing high-quality smartphones that are cheaper than its competition and are true value for money. The OnePlus 6 is blazing fast, a comes with a  gorgeous design. However, to beat the flagships, the smartphone needs to beat the industry leader. However, deciding the industry leader may be a debate, except for the fact of a number of sales. When it comes to smartphones, Apple is the most renowned company. So their latest smartphone iPhone X should be a good comparison point.

So here is why the OnePlus 6 is better than the iPhone X.

Headphone Jack

A simple yet a crucial thing to have in smartphones. You can argue that people are moving to wireless headphones and headphone jack doesn’t make sense with that technology. However, many people still use the corded earphones/headphones. Many professionals wired headphones as they provide a better sound quality. Also, you don’t have to think about charging them. Surely, the wireless headphones are more convenient, but wired is definitely better.

Also, in a situation like when you forget your expensive wireless earphones at home during a long trip, you can always buy a cheap pair of wires earphones that can be used in the OnePlus 6. Sorry iPhone X users.

Fingerprint Sensor

Back in Septemeber of 2013, Apple introduced the iPhone 5s with the fingerprint sensor. After that, it has become an industry standard. However, with the iPhone X Apple decided to kill the fingerprint sensor in favour of face unlock. However, you can’t match the benefits of the face unlock. With stuff like sunglasses or when you have an eye infection or you are asleep or wearing a helmet while driving a bike. Face unlock will fail in all these situations. However, fingerprint sensor always works. Also, it is faster.

Also, if you didn’t know OnePlus 6 also has a blazing fast face unlock feature. It is not as secure as the iPhone X one, but OnePlus 6 also has a fingerprint sensor. So a win for OnePlus.

Dash Charging

Many might argue that iPhone X has wireless charging, however, the wireless charging is normal charging and you have to buy the charger separately. Also, the iPhone X comes standard with a normal charger. OnePlus, on the other hand, has the dash charging technology.  With the OnePlus 6 dash charge, you can charge your phone from 0-100 in almost an hour. That’s half the charge time of iPhone X. Sure you lose wireless charging but with that charging speeds do you even need to think about charging?

Dual Sim support

User’s these days like to maintain two sim cards for official and personal uses. Also, many people who travel frequently have sim cards of multiple places. In these scenarios, there is a need for an ability to run sim cards on a smartphone. With the OnePlus 6, you can run dual sim cards without any issue. With the iPhone X, you will always need to change the sim cards every now and then which becomes a headache.


Price is a major concern while buying any smartphone.  While the iPhone X starts at $999(Rs 89,000) the OnePlus 6  starts at $549(Rs 34,999). This makes the difference of $450(Rs 54,000). This makes all in the worlds difference. You get similar features and performance for a lot less.
