Pixel 3 XL vs OnePlus 6T: Display

When it comes to buying a smartphone, the screen size is one of the most important factors. And these days, it's the screen size AND shape. Mainly because the notch is a popular trend.

If you hate the notch, skip the Pixel 3 XL. It's as simple as that. Google went with a huge, deep, big notch that looks like a smiley face. OnePlus, on the other hand, is using the smallest notch we've seen on a smartphone. 

The Pixel 3 XL comes with a 6.3-inch Quad-HD display. 

And as we now know, the OnePlus 6T has a TINY notch. Coming with a bigger 6.41-inch AMOLED display and an 86% screen-to-body ratio. That's higher than the Pixel 3 XL, iPhone Xs, and almost anything else. The front is almost all screen, and even the bottom bezel (chin) is smaller too. It has a smaller chin and notch than the Pixel, delivering a bigger screen in a smaller body. We're calling it a water-drop notch.

Either way, these phones have similar screen sizes, AMOLED displays, and a notch. The OnePlus 6T is a little bigger, and the notch is so small you'll barely notice it. Which one will you buy?
