OnePlus 6 vs. OnePlus 5 – Should You Buy The New One?

OnePlus 6 was unveiled yesterday (May 16th) during a special event. The flagship device looks amazing and its surely going to take the smartphone industry by storm. However, the question that remains is if OnePlus 5 owners should upgrade or keep using OnePlus 5 as their daily carrier? With that being said, today we are going to see what makes OnePlus 6 special and if OnePlus 5 can keep up with it.

Different Design

If we take a close look at the two OnePlus smartphones, we won’t be able to see that many differences. The Chinese tech giant doesn’t like to force its customers to upgrade their smartphones every year and that’s why they are so similar. However, the biggest difference that OnePlus fans are going to notice between the two smartphones is their design.

Switching from Metal to Glass

OnePlus 5 is renowned for how sturdy it feels when people hold it in their hands. The smartphone is also known for not cracking or getting scratched at the first fall because it’s made from strong metal. Although, it seems like the Chinese tech giant decided to take a risk when designing OnePlus 6 because the company replaced the metal with glass.

Even though glass might be fragile, it does make OnePlus 6 look incredible. Not just that, but the smartphone feels stylish and modern, something which Apple’s iPhone 4S first brought to the smartphone industry when it shipped with an all-glass back.

Should You Upgrade?

Truth be told, OnePlus 5 should consider upgrading their smartphone if they can afford it. OnePlus 6 is way more superior when it comes to design, but that’s not all! OnePlus 6 is also bigger with a 6.28-inch display which is quite large when compared to OnePlus 5’s 5.5-inch display.

We should also mention that OnePlus 6 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 and 8GB of RAM while OnePlus 5 runs on Qualcomm’s older version Snapdragon 835 and 8GB of RAM.

Here is how to watch the OnePlus 6 event live.
