We asked, you told us: The OnePlus 8 Pro outshines the Galaxy S20 Plus
OnePlus has been creeping up its prices every year since the OnePlus One. This year was the same case, but no one expected the company to do what it did: create a true rival to the Samsung Galaxy S20. A real IP rating, a solid camera system, and damn-good software are just a few headline features of the OnePlus 8 Pro. Coincidentally, the Galaxy S20 Plus shares those same features, as well as many other similar specs. They’re even the same price (with discounts)!
Last week, we asked you to choose one: OnePlus 8 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. We have a lot of OnePlus fans that read Android Authority so we were fully expecting the OnePlus 8 Pro to win this one, but the results actually paint a more interesting picture than we originally thought.
Pick one: OnePlus 8 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus?
Out of over 10,000 total votes across the website and Twitter, a large majority (47.6%) of Android Authority readers chose the OnePlus 8 Pro over the Galaxy S20 Plus. Just 32.75% of readers chose the Galaxy S20 Plus over the OnePlus, while 19.64% of voters said they don’t like either phone. Well then.
Interestingly, voters on the website were much more willing to choose the OnePlus 8 Pro over the S20 Plus — those results showed the OnePlus going away with 55.28% of the votes compared to the S20 Plus’ 34.54%. Twitter voters were more torn. There, the OnePlus 8 Pro “only” got 44.8% of the votes compared to the S20 Plus’ 32.1%.
Still, the results are clear. Most of you prefer the OnePlus 8 Pro over the Galaxy S20 Plus.
Here’s what you had to say
Here are some of the best comments from last week’s poll explaining why they voted the way that they did:
- Pedro Monteiro: OnePlus for me, both have top specs but i just like the look of the oneplus better plus it’s cheaper.
- Seba Edu Irarrazabal: One Plus!!!
- samsung! much better than Chinese one plus copying samsung. proper company that innovates.
- DBS: They both have inadmissible omissions that break the deal, starting with the lack of headphone jacks.
The OnePlus then lacks expandable storage and a good camera.
In turn, the S20 has an intrusive hole in the middle of the screen and a crap processor in most of the World.So, obviously, neither.
- roaduardo: S20 Plus because its display is MUCH less curved than the OP. That’s the key reason for me to pic the Samsung over the OP. If OP ever flattens their displays just like the Pixel and iPhones then I’m with OP until I die.Until then? Nope.
- Sathyam Naidu: The competition is very high, but the charges are high for the mid class people.
- Blee: OnePlus now charges flagship prizes! I wouldn’t buy any of S20 plus or OnePlus 8 Pro because of their prices. But if It were free, I would pick the OnePlus 8 Pro because of it’s overall look and design, I love it
That’s it for this week. As always, thanks for voting, thanks for the comments, and don’t forget to let us know what you thought of the results below!
