OnePlus 6T vs Google Pixel 3 XL: Here is how they stack up on camera

OnePlus 6T vs Google Pixel 3 XL: We compare how the two phones fare on the camera front, and which is the better pick in this department.

The Google Pixel 3 XL and the OnePlus 6T are two devices that showcase the best of what Android can achieve, especially on the camera front. While the OnePlus 6T, the mid-year upgrade to the OnePlus 6, pushes the envelope on what specs can be offered on a budget, the Pixel 3 XL is supposed to be the best of Google and Android, bringing in features that other phones will only get later.

We decided to do a deep camera comparison of the two phones. But before that here is how they compare on specifications.

OnePlus 6T vs Google Pixel 3 XL: Specifications, features

The Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch QHD+ display with a rather prominent notch, OnePlus 6T has a smaller water drop style notch, which is much more elegant. The display is 6.41-inches on the 6T. While both phones have excellent displays when using indoors, in bright sunlight, Pixel has the edge.

In bright sunlight, I could see that the Google phone’s display worked much better and was more legible, while OnePlus 6T struggled. I faced this while taking photos in bright sunlight during my vacation, where Pixel 3 XL’s viewfinder was clearly visible compared to OnePlus 6T.

The two phones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. However, Pixel 3 XL is limited to 4GB RAM. OnePlus 6T is offering 6GB and 8GB RAM coupled with 64, 128 and 256GB storage. RAM management has been an issue on the Pixel phones with apps randomly closing. This is where OnePlus 6T is better, given the price.
