OnePlus 5T vs Pixel 2 XL: Display

OnePlus 5T vs Pixel 2 XL: Display

The first thing we want to talk about is the display, for a few reasons. Mainly, the Pixel 2 XL doesn't have the best screen on the market, and that's something everyone has probably read in the news. It's still good, just not great.

If that's a concern for you, the OnePlus 5T could be a worthy alternative considering rumors believe it packs the same size screen. A big 6-inch edge-to-edge screen with smaller bezels. And while the OP5T bezels aren't as small as Samsung's Galaxy S8, they're smaller than Google's Pixel 2 XL. This is the first phone from OnePlus with this new design that's so popular in 2017.

One thing to keep in mind is the OnePlus 5T is still a 1080p display and not Quad-HD like Google's Pixel 2 XL.

Both phones feature a long and skinny design, making them easier to hold and use even with a bigger display. This is known as an 18:9 aspect ratio.

At the end of the day, many think a 6-inch screen is the perfect middle ground. It's not too big, nor too small. If you passed on the Pixel 2 XL, keep an eye on the latest from OnePlus.
