The OnePlus 6 has finally landed in the hands of many consumers this week. This will be a brief look at the phone and a few of the features that stand out. There are many sites showing the unboxing, so we will skip that part, since it is the same.
I’m sure you already know the specifications of this hot phone, if you are searching for it. But, just in case you heard the name and nothing else, take a gander over here for the full run-down.
While many users might compare the OnePlus 6 to the Samsung Galaxy S9+ because they are similar in size, I will compare it to the smaller, less expensive Samsung Galaxy S9 model. This will put them closer into the price range of each other; The OnePlus 6 starting at $529 and the Samsung Galaxy S9 starting at $720
