Let’s first see how users think which one won:

- OnePlus 5T won… Because iPhone X is too expensive.
- iPhone X: water resistant, better display, face ID, wireless charging, better cameras, Stereo Speaker.
- OnePlus 5T: half of the price, better battery, lighter, larger display, thinner, insane charging speed.
- Finally something I can afford!
- iPhone X, most expensive phone. Samsung Galaxy Note 8, best camera phone! Oneplus 5T: best budget Smartphone!!

That's right! I would like to do a fascinating comparison between iPhone X and the brand-new OnePlus 5T.

iPhone X vs OnePlus 5T

What makes it so interesting?

The huge price gap between them, but less hands-on experience difference!

Well, now let's see.


When you take the OnePlus 5T out of the box, you will find it larger in every dimension compared to the iPhone X. It is wider, taller and heavier.

OnePlus is half the price of iPhone X which is much more affordable. However, both the OnePlus 5T and iPhone X are looking gorgeous. The 5T boasts a unibody aluminum shell making it similar to that seen on iPhone 8.

iPhone X removes Touch ID sensor and it is replaced by Face ID tech which Apple claims is the most accurate and safe face authentication tech.

The OnePlus 5T rolls out 'Face Unlock' feature, which uses more than 100 unique identifiers to unlock the phone and it reads them using the phone's standard front camera. It is may not as accurate as Face ID, which throws 30,000 infrared dots on a face, but it may be faster than iPhone X as some early reviews claim.

Face Unlock vs Face ID

The iPhone X offers IP67 waterproof and dustproof protection while the OnePlus offers no protection against them.

Regarding colors on offer, Space Grey and Silver are available for iPhone X, which the OnePlus 5T is only available in Midnight Black.

The OnePlus 5T packs 3300mAh battery and supports dash charge, while the iPhone X packs 2716mAh battery and supports wireless charging and fast charging.

Release date Form factor Weight(g) Dimensions(mm) Battery capacity(mAh) Removable battery Price(USD)
iPhone X Sep 2017 Touch screen 174.00 143.60 x 70.90 x 7.70 2716 NO $999
OnePlus 5T Nov 2017 Touch screen 162.00 156.10 x 75.00 x 7.30 3300 NO $479



The 6 inches screen is the biggest display ever on a OnePlus handset. The resolution improved up to 401 PPI pixel density, but this still fails to match the iPhone X which offers a 458 PPI Super Retina resolution.

Screen size(inches) Resolution Pixels per inch(PPI)
iPhone X 6.01 1125x2436 pixels 458
OnePlus 5T 5.80 1080x2160 pixels 401


Both the iPhone X and the OnePlus 5T have dual camera setups, but the cheaper OnePlus 5T comes out with its dual 20MP and 16MP cameras, compared to Apple’s 12MP and 7MP sensors.

The OnePlus company also claims that its intelligent pixel technology can reduce noise in low-light environments and enhance clarity.

iPhone X 12-megapixel 7-megapixel
OnePlus 5T 20-megapixel 16-megapixel


The OnePlus 5T, like most of the recent Android flagships, packs with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 125GB storage.

On the other hand, iPhone X packs with Apple new A11 Bionic CPU, 3GB of RAM, 64GB or 256GB storage.

Processor Processor make RAM Internal storage Expandable storage
iPhone X hexa-core Apple A11 Bionic 3GB 64GB NO
OnePlus 5T 2.45GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 6GB 64GB NO


The iPhone X, of course, will ship running iOS 11. Many new features like Animoji, new gestures interaction, portrait lighting and selfie mode.

The OnePlus 5T runs Android 7.1.1, but the company promises a speedy upgraded to Google’s newer Oreo software. Thanks to OxgenOS 4.7, which enables a more streamlined software development process.

iPhone X YES YES Yes, v 5.00 NO 1
OnePlus 5T YES YES Yes, v 5.00 3.5mm 2

In conclusion:

Despite the big price difference, OnePlus 5T and iPhone X are fairly evenly matched. Both offer dual camera setups, full-screen designs, and face-scanning technology.

But the OnePlus 5T will probably convince users to cancel their iPhone X order for its lower price.
