Samsung Galaxy S20 vs OnePlus 8 Pro: Specs & Features Comparison

OnePlus recently released the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro with a little upgrade over its predecessors. The only feature which the users been asking for a long time has finally been included in the premium OnePlus 8 Pro- wireless charging. Here we are comparing this smartphone with the flagship one from Samsung and see if OnePlus did it again.

Design: Samsung Galaxy S20

OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a glass and aluminum body which is the choice for very long on OnePlus smartphones. The Galaxy S20 comes with the same design including glass back and aluminum frame. Both the smartphones come with the latest Gorilla Glass protection on the back and the display as well.

When it comes to the form factor and weight of the smartphone, Galaxy 20 is a clear winner here. OnePlus 8 is a huge smartphone with a thickness of 8.5mm and weighs 199 grams. Where the Galaxy S20 is the only 7.9mm which and weighs only 163 grams which is just insane for a flagship smartphone. Galaxy S20 also comes with IP68 water and dust resistance which is absent in OnePlus 8 Pro.

Display: A Win-Win situation

The displays on both the smartphones are beautiful and the best you can get on a flagship smartphone. OnePlus 8 comes with a 6.7 inches Fluid AMOLED display which is a little curved on the edges. The resolution is QHD+ and it comes with a high 120Hz refresh rate.

The Galaxy S20 comes with a comparatively small 6.2 inches Dynamic AMOLED display which is again, curved on the edges. The resolution is QHD+ and it also supports a 120Hz refresh rate for a smoother experience. Both the displays come with HDR+ support. OnePlus bragged a little bit more about the color accuracy on the event so we have to check that out ourselves.

Performance and OS: OnePlus 8 Pro all the way

OnePlus 8 comes with a snapdragon 865 chipset which is paired with up to 12GB of RAM. It comes with Oxygen OS based on Android 10 preinstalled with a lot of tweaks for improved performance. The storage on this device is UFS 3.0 which adds to the performance but you cannot expand the storage.

Samsung, on the other hand, comes with an Exynos 990 chipset which is a great chipset but it cannot game as better as SnapDragon 865. There is a Snapdragon 865 version available but only in the USA. So we will keep complaining about it until Samsung starts using Snapdragon 865 globally. Other than that, the storage on Galaxy S20 is also UFS 3.0 and its expandable.

Camera: OnePlus needs a lot of work

OnePlus 8 comes with a quad-camera setup at the back which includes two 48MP sensors for wide and ultra-wide pictures. The other two sensors are 8MP for 3X optical zoom and a 5MP sensor for depth. The front-facing the 16MP sensor is embedded in a punch hole on the display for selfies.

Samsung Galaxy S20 comes with a 12MP main sensor with a 64MP telephoto sensor with 3X optical zoom and one more 12MP sensor for ultrawide pictures. The smartphone comes with a 10MP sensor for selfies available in the punch-hole on the display. This camera setup is capable of shooting 8K videos at 24fps.

Battery and Charging

The OnePlus 8 comes with a 4510 mah battery with WarpCharge fast-charging brick. This charger can charge the smartphone at 30W maximum power. OnePlus claims that the battery can get 50 percent in 30 minutes. It supports wireless caring up to 30W supported by OnePlus' own wireless charging dock. It supports reverse wireless charging up to 3 watts.

Samsung Galaxy S20 comes with a 4000 mAh battery with 25Watt fast-charging brick. The smartphone also supports wireless charging up to 15 watts and it can reverse wireless charge any device with up to 9Watts max power. It also supports USB power delivery 3.0 which means it can reverse fast charge any device using its USB Type C port.

Wrapping up

This is the comparison of the two flagship smartphones which comes with some of the best specifications which you can find on any smartphone. Both smartphones are amazing but rest all depends on the price of the device. OnePlus8 Pro will be more affordable than Galaxy S20 but for that extra money, you are getting a lot of upgrades over OnePlus 8 Pro.
