OnePlus 5 vs Google Pixel XL: Two of our favorite phones, compared

1234 ratings | 64009 views
The OnePlus 5 and the Google Pixel XL offer two of the cleanest takes on Android out there, but they're also two decidedly different phones. Does the OP5's newer, faster hardware and much lower price tag put it above Google's 2016 flagship? Let's take a closer look. Want to sponsor the next Android Police video?

I can get a 128gb pixel xl for 400 new sealed or spend a little more and get the oneplus 5 128gb or just wait to see the Pixel 2 which would you recommend?
Noel Ventura. (5 months ago)
Why is pixel still over 800$. I thought the price went down. That's too much money that price needs to go down

Pixel XL with Oreo unstoppible!!!
Da.shArk87 (7 months ago)
I got the OnePlus 5, got no jelly effect (thank God), can dial 911 on volte without any crashing and I have EIS on 4K recordings. The camera has been improved and further updates still coming. It will be one of the first (behind the Nexus/pixel) to get Android O. Anda that thing is a beast. I was a hardcore Nexus fan so I like the pixels and I like Google smartphones. I liked to brag people it was a Google device which now unfortunately I cant say. The OnePlus is a really good brand and I can't recommend enoug

It was a good comparison, but shouldn't we compare the Pixel 2 when it comes out to the op 5, because pixel came out in 2016 and op 5 in 2017

'Due to the size of Oneplus a manufacturer however, they weren't able to pull that off' Could you please refrain from using the "oh they're just a small start-up" card. Oneplus is a subsidiary of OPPO and falls under the umbrella of mother company BBK electronics which besides OPPO and Oneplus owns VIVO and TCL brands. BBK is a large Chinese electronics conglomerate and with a massive marketing and R&D budget.

Despite of one plus 5 lots of shit, I don't know why youtube reviewer are pushing the one plus 5. I hate op service, cheating habit and this much is enough for me to tolerate.

whats that icon pack man
Adam Ramadhan (9 months ago)
1:20 ???? Smooth
Steven Lowe (9 months ago)
Good match up, but I'd say the 1+5 is the better phone overall. Software, design, audio, battery life. Pixel 2 should be more than a match though. Let's hope it's not stupidly priced

Pixel XL, all the way. Between the two of these, I say, if you're looking to get a phone in the next few months, wait until the pixel 2 comes out.

yogosans14 it looks just like a iPhone lmao how is that a better design
Jim McNevin (9 months ago)
The reality is that the OP5 should have been called the 3T Plus. My 3T can do virtually anything the 5 can do and it has OIS. The 5 does not.
Presley Chan (8 months ago)
Charismatic Batman oh... Just ignore my comment 😊.
Charismatic Batman (8 months ago)
Presley Chan ois is hardware,what they put is software called eis,so basically theres nothing oneplus can do to put ois in their oneplus 5 unless they recall all the oneplus and start upgrading it like what the dude above me said
Jim McNevin (8 months ago)
Presley Chan Read this! http://www.androidauthority.com/oneplus-5-camera-oneplus-3t-780368/
Jim McNevin (8 months ago)
Presley Chan No it doesn't. It is physically impossible. What it has is EIS. Electronic Image Stabilization which is added through a software upgrade. Object Image Stabilization is a physical device added to the lens of the camera. So unless they recalled all the 5's and undertook the cost of redoing everyone's camera, you and the OP5 do not have OIS.
Presley Chan (8 months ago)
Jim McNevin it has ois now

Great video 👍😎 I need a new phone but can make a choise between oneplus 5 or samsung galaxy s 8 ? I can't buy pixel in Denmark 🤔🤐
Noah Willson (9 months ago)
My Nexus 6p died much earlier than I thought it would have to I decided to go with the Oneplus 5 for the price and for the specs. I would have traded this dual Lens set up for a single great camera. This camera takes very clean shots during the day but during low light my Nexus 6p blows this out of the water. Im sure the pixel XL rocks a slightly better camera than the Nexus 6p.

The things where OnePlus takes a significant leap are: Jello effect. They put the display in reverse or something right? Terrible camera. And whatever, no one cares about the OnePlus 5 really.

molimits2 (9 months ago)
I have OP5 and Pixel (not XL). OP5 battery doesn't last 6-7 hours of screen on time!! Its average at best but it does charge super fast. Pixel much better screen and also more consistent camera (but less color accurate)

Pixel Advantages: Camera Support Lag/Jelly-free scrolling Dials 911
Vedant Nagar (5 months ago)
I don't care we don't have 911 here
Little King (8 months ago)
Jelly scrolling is awful. One plus should have made a public apology, recalled all Their units and put the screen on right. Short term, cost money z but in the long term probably more profitable and looks better for the company.
simongslo (8 months ago)
There should be no compromises here and the jelly effect is visible everywhere, not just scrolling up and down fast, but it's visible with normal scrolling in settings, whatsapp, messengers and basically everywhere. And this is only scrolling down (not up/down in a fast way). Seems unnatural. Try to turn OP5 upside down. You will then see how it should look like. And then you will see the difference.
Louis (9 months ago)
Nicholas Bridgemohan do you even own op5? Its just 719 cad. And its a lot better than Lagsung s8 and Crapple iphone. But not on the camera. The camera is just not good if u have shaky hands
PinkieBarto (9 months ago)
You won't even notice the jelly scrolling unless you are scrolling up and down fast on purpose, even then you have to concentrate to see it properly. Who scrolls up and down constantly on a daily use?...

How did you get that google now on the pixel?
waheguru singh (9 months ago)
They weren't able to pull that off because of the *size of Oneplus as a manufacturer?* Bitch please! You're a tech reviewer ffs, stop making excuses for Oneplus, every tech enthusiast worth its salt knows that oneplus is owned by BBK Electronics, a company which also owns oppo & vivo, the world's third & fourth largest selling brands so no shit, they do have plenty of resources to innovate as much as Samsung & apple! They didnt do it just because it would ruin their cost cutting schemes! Also, OIS is also not there which is a hopeless move for a camera-centric smartphone! Oneplus 3T was a solid phone but Oneplus 5 is a sick joke of a smartphone in 2017! It just rly fast, charges fast & has a respectable battery life, EVERYTHING ELSE is just *mediocre*. I do respect you but this sounds awfully lot like paid promotion to me.
waheguru singh (9 months ago)
Haroon Ahmed yes i agree that these things could inflate the prices. *But, they did inflate the prices!!* That too with adding a camera & taking the OIS off. i just cannot take this shit from such well known tech reviewers! Every time they fail on something, they have the excuse like oneplus is a small company with limited resources & tech. Im like, No shit! im no tech specialist & still i know these facts but *How can they not?* Ultimately, it feels like they're making excuses for oneplus & hence, bought off. *A tech reviewer should do their research before making such biased statements!* Plus, Oneplus isnt a separate company that BBK Electronics bought off someone else, they're the one who launched oneplus as a brand! (They're gonna launch one more mobile phone brand very soon.) So, no matter who sells the most, all profits would go to the same firm. Oneplus is as well known as Oppo Vivo, if not more!
Haroon Ahmed (9 months ago)
Oppo have plenty of resources to include a 2k bezeless display and all them other things u said (besides the ois which should be there), but they probably enforce a budget that Oneplus have to work with, they also wouldnt want a company they own with a smaller name to overtake them in the market either. Tbh the inclusion of them would also push the price towards the s8 aswell
simongslo (9 months ago)
Never saw the jelly effect in the reviews and hated people commenting on it, but it is actually visible on this video - 1:39 and 3:58 (see the image with the red phone on his feed) are just the most visible here. Why don't reviewers comment on that also?

AbdulMalik Olanrewaju (9 months ago)
i use the pixel XL, it works fine for me but i will love to get the One Plus 5 maybe because fo the dual SIM
Shane Morton (9 months ago)
Still very happy with my XL. I won't go with a OP device, because they don't work on Verizon, and because of OP's terrible update/customer service record. I like the cost:performance ratio, but other than that, I'll stick with Google devices.
Honestly the software and speed on so many phones is becoming less and less comparable. They are all super fast and honestly the best thing to compare is the price, and hardware features...
