Spec Shootout: OnePlus 3, LG G5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S7

OP3 G5 S7

This year OnePlus has toned down their marketing, the Flagship Killer and Never Settle rhetoric is gone in favour of a more subtle “It’s about time” marketing slogan. So how does the OnePlus 3 stand up to the competition? In the end, that’s a personal decision but we’ve pegged the OnePlus 3 against the two of the latest and greatest flagships, LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 for your comparison.

Without a hands on with the new OnePlus 3 it’s not possible to determine real world performance for responsiveness, cameras, touch sensors and battery etc. Hopefully, OnePlus will send us a review unit and we will give it the full Ausdroid treatment.

How does the OnePlus 3 stack up for you? Tell us in the comments.
