OnePlus 8T vs Google pixal 5 - The Brutal Truth

Image source : Oneplus/Google pixal


So on paper this new oneplus 8T it's so specked out that it kind of looks like it could eat the google pixel 5 for breakfast for a similar price you've got a 120hz display versus 90. a quad camera setup versus dual 32 megapixel selfie camera versus eight the high-end chipset versus a mid-range one way faster ufs 3.1 storage and a significantly bigger battery and it doesn't really work the other way around, what does the pixel have that theoneplus doesn't thewater resistance rating yeah kind of but the one plus still has seals to protect against water damage anyways the pixel has wireless charging oneplus doesn't so i guess that's a positive so on paper this new oneplus 8t it's so specked out that it kind of looks like it could eat the google pixel 5 for breakfast for a similar price you've got a 120hz display versus 90. 

A quad camera setup versus dual 32 megapixel selfie camera versus eight the high-end chipset versus a mid-range one way faster ufs 3.1 storage and a significantly bigger battery and it doesn't really work the other way around what does the pixel have that the oneplus doesn't the water resistance rating yeah kind of but the one plus still has seals to protect against water damage anyways the pixel has wireless charging oneplus doesn't so i guess that's a positive but really wired charging is way more efficient i made a full video about that and in that category the 65 watt oneplus charging kind of demolishes pixels 18 watts you don't even really get the historic software advantage that google has had because oneplus software has improved to a point where i would say it's not just visually similar but it actually offers a lot of features and granular customization that google's doesn't plus they're shipping with the same android 11 and the same three years of promised software updates.

The 8T really feels like oneplus took their best phone and just turned a couple of things down but the pixel really feels like google started with a budget phone and turned a few things up but like not quite enough it genuinely almost comes across as if google doesn't care about the pixel 5 and there's a couple of other things that back this up how their budget phones are out selling their flagships many times over and how they're, apparently only producing something like 800 000 pixel fives as if they're already preparing for to not sell well plus i was watching their launch event just feeling a bit puzzled google spent 20 minutes talking about their smart speaker and google tv and literally eight minutes talking about their phones and of that i want to say one minute talking about the pixel 5 itself,now just for a second contrast that to oneplus you held a one-hour event almost exclusively for the 8t and the 80 isn't even their main launch this year it's just a bit unusual even comparing
the retail box of the two phones.


it feels like we've got one scrappy company fighting to provide as much content and as unique an experience as possible at every step of the customer journey Versus a company who thinks it's just a box it doesn't really matter what it looks like so as far as the kind of the mindset i had going into this the the promise of these two phones it feels like one plus is a head but how do they stack up in practice well externally the oneplus is fine i'm a fan of how the color completely flips from blue to green depending on the angle you hold it feels tough and well made but it's not an all-round upgrade compared to the last oneplus 8 it's bulkier it's heavier and they swapped the slightly curved display to a completely flat one which makes the side bezels look thicker plus they just straight up got rid of that premium matte finish in place of a more standard glossy one,if i had to guess they've probably done this just to give people a reason to still consider the more expensive oneplus 8 pro now while this is happening while oneplus seems to become more conventional google's gone rogue the pixel 5 is remarkably small for a flagship it's got,a fingerprint scanner on the back in a world.
