OnePlus 6 vs Galaxy S9+: Specs

Speaking of the specs, and what each phone does and doesn't have, here's how the two compare on paper. They're both super powerful and high-end. One just costs a lot less. 

OnePlus 6 Specs

  • 6.28-inch 2280 x 1080p Full HD Optic AMOLED Display
  • Snapdragon 845 Processor with 6-8GB of RAM (Same processor as S9)
  • 64, 128, or 256GB of storage, no microSD slot
  • 16MP + 20MP Rear Camera (f/1.7, OIS, EIS, 4K) Finally, optical image stabilization
  • 16 Megapixel f/2.0 front-facing selfie camera
  • Android 8.1 Oreo (or Android P beta)
  • Rear fingerprint scanner, Fast Face Unlock, more
  • 3,300 mAh battery with fast Dash Charging
  • Daily Water-Resistance (whatever that means)
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack, BT 5.0, NFC, 4G LTE, alert slider
  • Mirror Black, Midnight Black, or Silk White color options

Looks good, right? Compare that to the Galaxy S9+. 

Galaxy S9+ Specs

  • 6.2-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Curved Infinity AMOLED Display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of AM (only on S9+)
  • 64GB of internal storage with microSD expansion
  • Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung TouchWiz
  • 12 Dualpixel Rear Cameras (Both 12MP) - OIS, phase detection auto-focus, f/1.5-2.4 variable aperture lens, 4K, more
  • 8 megapixel front camera with auto focus
  • Fingerprint and Iris Scanners
  • IP68 dust & water resistance
  • 3,500 mAh battery with wireless charging
  • Always-On Display
  • Samsung Pay
  • USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bixby AI, more

As you can see, this is a closer battle than ever before. OnePlus is aiming right for Samsung with this phone. You can get more RAM and more storage from OnePlus, but it doesn't have a microSD slot. Samsung does. 

Samsung probably has the better camera, Samsung has water-resistance, and Samsung has wireless charging. Not to mention Samsung Pay and Bixby. Then again, the OnePlus 6 is only $529. You're getting 95% of the phone for 60% of the cost.
