OnePlus One VS Google Nexus 5 – which is better
For the past six months, Nexus 5 was still the best combination of high-end smartphone and affordable mobile device. But this smartphone already has competition from OnePlus One.
OnePlus is a subsidiary of Oppo Electronics and smartphone manufacturer from China. The company was founded on December 17, 2013 with headquarters in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Thus confirms the old adage that every product has an excellent competitor to “cause” to back its place in the market. Just so another good smartphone is about to cause another logical “turmoil” in the face of OnePlus One.
Analysts have decided to compare it with the Google Nexus 5 – another mobile phone that has an attractive low price for the many features it offers. Thus, users will be able to whichever brilliant device is better than the other.
OnePlus One and Google Nexus 5 work with the latest version of the platform of Google, Android KitKat 4.4.2. While the Nexus 5 works with the original version of Android, it actually works OnePlus One with CyanogenMod 11S. This platform works with Android interface and offers many improvements and additional features.
Both devices have a relatively modest design but OnePlus One has an interesting back panel. embodiments made of various materials such as bamboo, wood and the like. The phone itself has a magnesium alloy frame, making it quite light – 162 grams. In the thinnest part is 4.6 mm thick, and at the thickest – 8.9 mm.
On the other hand Nexus 5 features elegant forms and is almost flat. It is made so that it looks smaller than it is because the edges are slightly curved and the corners – slightly tapered. The back of the phone is made of soft plastic that is warm to the touch and comfortable to grip, but it remains easy prints. The dimensions of the Nexus 5 are 137.9 x 69.2 x 8.6 mm and is much easier to use with one hand, as the user is able to reach all areas of the screen. Due to its large size 152.9 x 75.9 mm, OnePlus One is obviously unnatural hand and must use two hands when operating the device.
Nexus 5 features a 4.95 -inch True HD display with IPS + technology, a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which means 445 ppi pixel density. The colors are saturated, but never unreal, and the viewing angle is great. This makes the device very comfortable and for reading, working, watching movies. OnePlus One has a larger display of – 5.5 -inch with a resolution of 1080p and is protected by glass Gorilla Glass 3. But pixel density is slightly lower than that of Nexus 5 – 401ppi. This means that the Nexus 5 has a slight edge in terms of clarity of the image, but it is unlikely to notice a huge difference in quality between the two displays.
OnePlus One is equipped with a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor 801, 3 GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU, which puts it on par with the acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2. Since Nexus 5 is six months older model, the device is equipped with a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon old 800 processor, 2GB RAM and the same Adreno 330 GPU. Both devices are powerful enough, but the 801 chip OnePlus One provides better power efficiency for a better overall user experience.
Nexus 5 features an 8-megapixel rear camera, it does not sound bad on paper, but in practice photos that smartphone make are not so good. Even after updating the camera software is still one of the biggest weaknesses of the Nexus 5. Device has a 1.3 – megapixel front camera. Things look much better in OnePlus One. The phone has a 13 – megapixel camera that can record 4K video with dual LED flash, 6 -element optics and sensor from Sony and a 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera. So the initial signs are good, but it remains to see how the phone will perform in practice.
The battery is another weak feature of Nexus 5. It is 2300 mAh, and since Google gave her to 17 hours of talk time in 3G mode. If you play heavy games, it can take 3% of the battery for about ten minutes and an hour video drain approximately 20%. OnePlus does have 3100 mAh battery, and thanks to 801 Snapdragon chip Qualcomm, the signs are good that the device will be able to provide decent battery life.
Both phones have a microSD slot so that the user is forced to deal with the available internal memory. Of course, you can always flee to store data in the cloud with services like Google Drive and Dropbox, but it’s not for everyone. Nexus 5 is available in 16 GB and 32 GB models, but note that about 4 GB will be occupied by your operating system. OnePlus is available in 16 GB and 64 GB models, but the price difference is minimal, so you can safely navigate to the 64 GB model.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2014/04/30/oneplus-one-vs-google-nexus-5-which-is-better/https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/sz_OnePlus-One-vs-Nexus-5.jpg?fit=600%2C341https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/sz_OnePlus-One-vs-Nexus-5.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSGoogle,Nexus,OnePlus,smartphoneFor the past six months, Nexus 5 was still the best combination of high-end smartphone and affordable mobile device.
