The OnePlus 6 is the latest Android phone to adopt a notch, so we thought we’d check it out and compare it to the iPhone X in our latest YouTube video.
It does, however, have facial recognition capabilities, but 2D, not 3D. 2D facial recognition is less secure than the 3D facial recognition Apple has implemented and cannot replace a fingerprint sensor as a biometric option.
Like the iPhone X, the OnePlus 6 features an all-glass body, with two vertically positioned rear cameras and a fingerprint sensor for security purposes.
Inside, the OnePlus 6 does have some impressive hardware. It uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor and it includes 6 to 8GB of RAM, depending on the storage space, which is 64GB at minimum. Comparatively, Apple’s latest iPhone X offers just 2GB RAM, but Apple devices tend to use hardware more efficiently due to the tight integration between hardware and software.
OnePlus continues to offer a headphone jack in the OnePlus 6, but did opt to ship the smartphone alongside the $69 OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones, the company’s answer to the AirPods.
