Two of the most notable companies in the Android space are Samsung and OnePlus. Both regularly offer some of the best handsets the market has to offer, including the Galaxy S20, OnePlus 8, and more.

Samsung and OnePlus phones aim to deliver a top-notch Android experience through and through, but both brands go about doing this very differently.

Some of our AC forum members recently got to talking about how OnePlus and Samsung compare, saying:

I have both. Used 1+ 8 Pro for a month and switched back to my note 10+ after issues with the phone app dropping calls and screen edge not recognizing touch issues. I did get better service signal with the 1+ and 5G but I can't deal with other issues. Now waiting for the Note 20 Ultra with 5G.


The biggest thing OnePlus has in its favour is fast and frequent software updates. I love OxygenOS. It's in the little useful things like screen-off gestures that impressed me initially with the OP3. It's how they've kept a 4 year old phone feeling fast and fresh so many years later. My daughter is still using it, and doesn't want to upgrade, even when I've offered. And it's not lost on me how...


The only thing I can say is to switch if you like cleaner software experience.


It doesn't have an s-pen and DeX.... therfore it's inferior... stop thinking crazy thoughts..
