6 reasons why OnePlus One smartphone is better than Samsung Galaxy S5

May 13, 2014 by Omar Sohail

Just last month, the startup company known as OnePlus announced its debut flagship smartphone named the OnePlus One smartphone. Getting ready to be globally released on mid-May (the 16 GB capacity variant) and early June (the 64 GB capacity variant), the six factors that place the OnePlus One smartphone above Samsung Galaxy S5 are cheaper price, great processor, higher RAM, faster connectivity, larger screen and larger battery capacity. 

Let’s take them on one by one.

1. The much Cheaper Price

The Much Cheaper Price

Perhaps one of the biggest deciding factors between choosing a smartphone happens to be its price. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is priced at $699.99 (the unlocked version for the 16 GB capacity variant). That being said, the Galaxy S5 will require an extremely expensive investment on the consumers’ part and since majority of consumers always require a product that has the perfect price/performance ratio, the OnePlus One smartphone’s price is unmatched in this category. Even though the OnePlus One does not carry an external card slot for expandable storage (for the Galaxy S5, the maximum external storage capacity is 128 GB), the 16 GB and the 64 GB capacity variants of the OnePlus One smartphone are priced at $299.99 and $349.99 respectively, giving the smartphone an immediate advantage over Samsung’s Galaxy S5. Also, acquiring the 64 GB capacity version will suit majority’s smartphone storage requirements.

2. Same Processor at Cheaper Rate

Same Processor At Cheaper Rate

The OnePlus One smartphone and the Samsung Galaxy S5 are both equipped with Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 801, which are both running quad core Krait processors that are clocked in at 2.5 GHz. The difference is the price variant. You will acquire the same technology at half the price.

3. Larger Memory Storage

Larger Memory Storage

Perhaps one of the major highlights of the OnePlus One smartphone happens to be the amount of RAM it carries. The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes shipped with 2 GB of RAM while the OnePlus One smartphone carries 3 GB of RAM. That happens to be one whole Gigabyte of memory higher than Samsung’s current flagship smartphone and that too, priced considerably lower than it.

4. Larger Screen Display

Larger Screen Display

The Galaxy S5 comes equipped with a 5.1 inch screen that carries a 1080 pixel resolution. The OnePlus One smartphone carries a screen size of 5.5 inches and that too, boasting the exact same amount of resolution pixels as the Galaxy S5. The larger screen will definitely come in handy when you want to view high definition movies over a large screen or enjoy video calling services over IP with your friends and family.

5. Faster Connectivity

Faster Connectivity

Equipped with components that support the 802.11 ac wireless standard and a processor with a 4G LTE multimode modem, the OnePlus One will be able to provide users with unmatched calling performance without the dependency of WiFi using free international calling apps. 4G LTE allows free mobility. In addition to using these free international calling apps, video streaming and internet browsing performance will also be given a huge performance boost. You will be able to browse, stream and make calls to your loved ones without experiencing any delay or buffering. The Galaxy S5, on the other hand, possesses the same features but the only hindrance is the price quotient. If you’re getting the same performance at half the price, the obvious choice will be the cheaper one. .

6. Larger Battery Capacity

Larger Battery Capacity

The Android operating system is always battery hungry. Providing smartphones with larger capacity batteries is the only current resourceful solution available to smartphone manufacturers to help smartphone users run their devices throughout the day. OnePlus targeted this pressing issue of all android smartphone users and has come up with a 3100 mAh battery instead of Galaxy S5’s 2800 mAh battery. This allows you to use your smartphone for a longer period with no issues of battery drainage.

The enlisted factors have given you a clear picture as to why the OnePlus smartphone is far better than Samsung’s Galaxy S5. With a price tag that is half that of the Galaxy S5, the exact same processing performance, higher amount of RAM, larger screen, exact same connectivity performance, and last but certainly not least, a larger capacity battery, the OnePlus One seems to be a clear winner.
