OneDrive vs. Google Drive vs. Dropbox – Best Specs and Features Comparison

As technology has evolved, people are using cloud services more and more. Each user tries to get more and more space, but this isn’t the only criteria for which they are choosing one service or another. Three of the main competitors on the market are Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive, but which one is better?

Free Storage

When it comes to free storage, Google Drive wins by far. It offers 15 GB free for each user. OneDrive used to do that too, but now they are just offering 5 GB. At the same time, Dropbox continues on the market with a mere 2 GB. However, if you invite 26 people to join Dropbox, you can reach a surprising 16 GB free storage with Dropbox.

Prices

Dropbox offers one paid tier for users, which is 1 TB space for £7.99 a month, or £79 a year. Meanwhile, OneDrive had several additional tiers to the free service, namely 100 GB, 200 GB and 2 TB. However, the first two now got replaced by one 50 GB plan that costs £1.99 a month. The 1 TB option would cost you £5.99, and an extra 5 TB one would cost £7.99 or £79.99 a year. Google Drive offers 5 types of premium subscriptions, from £1.54 ($1.99) a month for 100 GB (before tax) up to £77.25 ($99.99) a month for 10 TB (also before tax). Keep in mind that Google Drive can only charge in dollars!

Compatibility

When it comes to compatible platforms, OneDrive works on Windows PC, Mac, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Moreover, it can even be used on the Xbox! Dropbox also comes with native support for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Windows Phone, but it also offers a native app for BlackBerry and Amazon Kindle Fire. Meanwhile, Google Drive does not cater to Windows Phone, but it works on Windows PC, Mac, iOS, plus Android.
