The phone has received an overhaul in terms of battery getting a 3,400mAh as compared to the previously 3,00mAh Battery. In the front camera department, the device will now feature a 16MP camera. OnePlus 3T launched with Android Marshmallow but will get a flavor of Nougat before the year ends.

The camera department is where iPhone gives most phones a run for their money and OnePlus 3T is no exception. In terms of processing power on paper, the A10 Chip is definitely superior; however there would be a negligible difference in real-life.
With the Note 7 terminated, the Galaxy S7 is the current true flagship device of the Samsung. This makes the S7, the oldest device put in the comparison. OnePlus 3T definitely has the edge in terms of processing power, however S7 takes the lead when it comes to battery timing and there is the smooth curvy display to root for as well. The camera slightly surpasses the OnePlus 3T; however it would be a tough call to choose the best one and depends highly on user preferences.
Pixel is the first device to carry the official Google logo on its back and holds the edge in terms of Camera prowess as it carries by far, the best camera on any smartphone. OnePlus 3T has the edge due
to its 6GB RAM, however Pixel easily surpasses the difference due to stock android and better optimization of the software. Pixel also leads all Android devices in terms of upgrades and also includes the best of Google (including the Voice Assistant). The Pixel outshines the OnePlus 3T but fails to offer a better value for money as was noticeable in the Nexus lineup.
