OnePlus One VS Samsung Galaxy S5: Specs comparison

The Chinese new-player OnePlus is a starting smartphone company that already got the attention of many consumers with its One. It is touted to be the flagship killer because of its affordable price tag and impressive specs that claim to battle the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S5. Just how close is the battle on paper? We pitted both devices side-by-side for a specs comparison.

As you can see, the two devices share the same Snapdragon 801 processor while the rest of their specs are somewhat in the same range of each other. The biggest difference between the two is the price — with the Galaxy S5 almost three times the price of the One.

We’ve seen the similarities and differences of both devices in terms of specs and we’ve also taken note of their respective price points. The question now is this: Would you take a risk and buy a OnePlus One (if ever it gets here) over a Samsung Galaxy S5 considering the former is just a budding company? Or does it even matter? More importantly, is this the time where Chinese products should no longer be considered only as lower classes?

    Why not? I will buy OnePlus because it is high end phone with a low price. C’mon OnePlus come to Philippines.

    I’ll wait for the Tegra4 smartphone.

  3. bliss says:

    if the price stays below 15k then yes…if not there are other options to consider…the note 3 is just 24k (grey market) lg g2 at 20k

  4. joeyoliver says:

    Just like the Nexus line – taxes will make the SRP go higher. I think the price in HK is actually already higher than the US price which is 13k vs 17k.

    • archie says:

      Lahat ng smartphone ngayon ay gawa sa China. Kahit ang local brands na nagmamalaking proud to be pinoy ay galing Tsina. Kung yun ngang Cherry Mobile na sirain e napagtiyagaan ng pinoy, yan pa kaya na may integrity sa bansa nila?

    • bro says:

      Pre, wag isip-hangal, product research naman pag may time. High-end build quality ng OnePlus (na subsidiary ng Oppo). HTC level gawa niyan brad. Ewan ka nga talaga lol

  6. Easy E says:

    For now mahirap pang makabili ng oneplus1. I to any sulit phone. If you have a chance na makabili into, wag na kayong magpatumpik-tumpik pa.

  7. utak niyo relax says:

    • Utak niyo relax says:

  9. Zabby says:

    just waiting for OPPO 7/7a the 7a seems good sa demo i saw, although 3rd week pa release sa pinas. I heard 22K ata sa 7a correct im wrong, 13mp, 801 snapdragon parang maganda din ang zooming sa cam less noise, pero 4.3 out of the box.

  10. devilboy says:

    wag na kasi maingay ang mga haters. palibhasa nagsayang kayo ng pera niyo sa mga overpriced na branded units. ayan me isang company na willing makipag kumpetensya sa kanila with that kind of monster specs with very affordable price range. they will eat dust once it lands here in the Philippines can’t wait hehehe!

  11. Ex-Alodian Knight says:

    Basta may kevlar back, oks na me.

  12. acez says:

    flagship phone nila yan for sure matibay at maganda yan sino namang company ang gustung masira agad ang pangalan diba..Samsung and iphone para na ding isinampal sa inyo ng oneplus yang mga over price flagship phone nyo hehe….joke..

  13. jimboy says:

    Will still go for a Samsung phone which I can get from a data plan from either smart or globe. What I like about branded phones:

    Support/upgrade
    Sure sa quality
    May warranty

    My Note 2 will be turning 2 years now and so far, I still see using this phone near term lalu na magkakaKitKat na kami. :)

  14. Kjata says:

    nasa paggamit yan eh kahit anong ganda ng unit mo at bopols ka naman maghandle sa madaling salita careless ka wala din kwenta ako S2 ko 3 years na but still working naka mod CM11 at parang bago pa din at yon CM Flare almost 1 year na pero ok na ok pa din wala problema.

    Sana magkaroon nito dito sa pinas bibili ako nito para ka na din naka note 3 sa spec pa lang aanhin mo ang brandname kung ang spec panget naman para lang yan desktop eh bakit ako bibili ng DELL or HP kung pwede naman assemble na lang ako kasi mas makakamura ako mas magandang spec pa.
