OnePlus 3 vs. Nexus 6P: Who does clean, affordable and powerful better?

95
OnePlus 3 vs. Nexus 6P

Two phones vying for the same customer base — which one does it better?

With each of its phones, OnePlus has consistently aimed at the same type of customers who would normally consider a Nexus — hitting on the big points of lower prices, great performance, simple software and the ability to customize things if you so choose.
