Despite being cheaper than other flagship phones, its raw performance power is on par or even better than its competitors. It can run multiple background tasks and even the most demanding games and apps without any stutter, due to its Snapdragon 835 chipset and Adreno 540 GPU — the most powerful GPU currently available for Android devices. It also has one of the highest RAM for mobile devices: the 64GB version has 6GB of RAM while the 128GB versions sports 8GB of RAM. It is highly unlikely that you will run into problems like application instability, stuttering, or crashing, due to insufficient specs. See More
The biggest change from the OnePlus 5 (and even earlier OnePlus models) is the screen. The 5T boasts a large 6.01-inch FullHD AMOLED display with a 18:9 aspect ratio that follows the trend of newer smartphones with elongated screens. Even though it has a 1080x2160 resolution and 401ppi pixel density, it does not mean that the screen on the OnePlus 5T is poor, quite the contrary. The AMOLED panel offers bright and lifelike colors even though images are not as sharp as some other competitors. See More
The phone has a dual-lens camera setup in the back. This setup allows you to zoom into objects up to 2x closer without losing image quality, like when using digital zoom. The portrait mode makes one of the cameras focus on the primary object/person, while the other camera unfocuses the background. This creates a bokeh effect that most phone cameras usually can’t achieve. Photographers will appreciate the Pro mode that enables full manual control, as well as an on screen histogram and guidelines. It does, however, lack optical image stabilization, so you have to keep the phone really steady for long exposure shots. It also can’t capture high frame rate video. See More
Like the Galaxy S8, the LG G6 has a taller display than most phones: most have a 16:9 aspect ratio, the S8 has an 18.5:9, and the G6 has an 18:9, or 2:1. This is fantastic for Android's newer multitasking features, as well as just general use. The vast majority of apps support this new display, so you should have no problems with that. See More
The LG G6 has a 5.7" QHD display, yet its overall size is smaller than the Galaxy S7 Edge, and significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, both of which have 5.5" screens. This means that you get a bigger display with a more manageable form factor which makes it easy to use even with one hand. See More
The 19MP primary camera is packed with features. For starters, it has same RGB and IR sensors that improve color reproduction and focus speed respectively. There's also a CMOS sensor with phase detection autofocus that helps with low-light shooting. Finally, there's Motion Eye: a memory-embedded sensor that immediately processes images to minimize distortion. All of this hardware packed together manages to capture some of the most detailed and high-quality photos a smartphone can take, coming extremely close to the quality of photos taken by the S8 which is considered to have the best camera for this generation of smartphones.

The Xperia XZ Premium has a 5.5inch 4K display. It roughly has around 807 pixels per inch, which is far more pixels than the competition manages to display on their phone. This results in the sharpest images ever seen on a smartphone display. See More
