We live in an era where every day a new smartphone is launched. Interestingly, each of them claims to be the best and also states that the features are brand new and can’t be found in any other smartphone. Right now, two of the biggest players in the smartphone arena are – Apple and OnePlus. With both these brands launching a new phone every year, it is becoming difficult for smartphone aficionados to choose between the two brands. While Apple already has a fanbase, OnePlus is slowly catching up.
However, to be honest, OnePlus is still far behind in building a fanbase that Apple already has. Furthermore, when it comes to offerings, OnePlus will take years to reach Apple’s position. And, we can’t even guarantee that! So, if you are stuck between iPhone 7 and OnePlus 6, here we are to help you decide.
Carrying a phone that is hard to fit into your hand is nothing less than a challenge. The 5.44-inch frame size of iPhone 7, when compared to the 6.28-inch of OnePlus 6, makes iPhone 7 a definite winner. The size offered by Apple is just perfect for taking selfies, carrying in hands and slipping in the pocket. With a phone that snuggles perfectly in the hands, you won’t have to worry about slips and accidents that may lead to damage.
While all smartphones these days come with rear fingerprint sensor (including OnePlus 6), Apple iPhone 7 has a front fingerprint sensor. The good thing here is that it is easier to unlock the phone using the front sensor when compared to the rear one. So, if your phone is kept on the table, you don’t need to pick it up every time you wish to unlock it. Furthermore, if you have a habit of keeping the device in the phone holder while driving, the rear sensor won’t work as the holder will cover it up.
The M10 Motion coprocessor of iPhone 7 is a boon. It makes the device even more intelligent without the support of any third-party application. By intelligent, we mean that it helps the device understand when to activate certain features and when to slow things down and conserve battery life. The coprocessor also means that you are carrying a powerful motion tracking gizmo that effectively eliminates the need of wearing a separate fitness band to track motion and distance covered. OnePlus 6 doesn’t have any such feature.
When compared to OnePlus 6, iPhone 7 has a smart and sleek finish that makes it easier to carry. The sleek design makes it fit in anywhere while the dustproof nature keeps the smartphone away from damages caused by dust. So, if you are looking for a phone that is high on aesthetics and ruggedness, rush to the nearest Apple Store in Punjab, Pune, Mumbai or wherever you live to give yourself a gift like never.
iPhone 7 is splash, water, and dust resistant and is tested by Apple under controlled laboratory conditions and has a rating of IP67 under IEC standard 60529. However, owing to the transparent approach that Apple has, they quote that “splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear.” On the other hand, OnePlus 6 is only splash resistant. Which means, if you go for OnePlus 6, you will need to be extra cautious while using the phone around water and in a dusty area.
All these features combined explain that iPhone 7 is a better choice when compared to OnePlus 6. The splash, water, and dust resistant feature give it an extra edge over the Android-based OnePlus 6. So, now that you have a verdict visit the nearest iPhone store in Chandigarh or wherever you live to bring home this smart yet advanced phone.
