OnePlus 3T vs Google Pixel XL vs Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe: Price, specifications and features compared

The battle of flagship smartphones powered by Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 821 quad-core SoC.

oneplus 3t comparo

Soon after the global launch of the OnePlus 3T last month, the company has now launched the smartphone in India too. Since the launch of its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, the company has been marketing the series as Flagship Killer. However, the OnePlus 3T comes as the competitor to the OnePlus 3, rather than being a successor. Minor upgrades come in the form of larger capacity battery, slightly faster SoC, more storage and a higher-resolution selfie camera, but they come at a cost. We compared the OnePlus 3T with the Google Pixel XL and Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe, all of which run on the same SoC. Here s how they fare based on their price specifications and features.

Price and availability: The OnePlus 3T is offered in two storage options 64GB variant priced at Rs 29,999 and 128GB variant priced at Rs 34,999. It will be available exclusively on Amazon India starting December 14. The Google Pixel XL is also offered in two storage options 32GB variant priced at Rs 67,000 and 128GB variant priced at Rs 76,000. You can purchase the Pixel XL from Flipkart or offline retailers such as Reliance Digital and Croma, among others. The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe powered by two different chipsets – Snapdragon 821 SoC + 256GB storage will set you back by Rs 62,999 and the other with Snapdragon 820 SoC priced at Rs 49,999. Clearly, the OnePlus 3T has the edge here. Also Read - Friendship Day gifting ideas for your young tech-savvy besties under Rs 5,000

Display: OnePlus 3T sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080p) Optic AMOLED display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The Google Pixel XL flaunts a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass on top, and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe, on the other hand, flaunts a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED, full-HD (1080p) display with Tru2Life Technology, 79 percent screen-to-body ratio, and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.

Chipset, RAM and storage: As mentioned before, all smartphones are powered by Qualcomm s 64-bit Snapdragon 821 quad-core SoC (four custom Kryo processor) built on 14nm fabrication process. With maximum clock speed of 2.4GHz, the SoC paired with Adreno 530 GPU. The OnePlus 3T and the Zenfone 3 Deluxe feature 6GB of RAM, whereas the Pixel XL features 4GB of RAM. We believe the 6GB of RAM is more of a marketing gimmick than having any real world advantage.

Cameras: The OnePlus 3T features a 16-megapixel rear camera (Sony IMX 298 sensor) of aperture f/2.0, PDAF, LED flash and 4K video recording capabilities. For selfies, you get a 16-megapixel front-facing camera (Samsung 3P8SP sensor) of aperture f/2.0, PDAF, LED flash and 1080p video recording capabilities. The Pixel XL is equipped with a 12.3-megapixel rear snapper of aperture f/2.0 with PDAF, electronic image stabilization (EIS), laser auto-focus, and 4K video recording support. Up front, there is an 8-megapixel fixed-focus selfie camera. ALSO READ: Ok Google, your Pixel smartphones are impressive

The Zenfone 3 Deluxe, on then other hand, features a 23-megapixel rear camera (Sony IMX318 Exmor-RS imaging sensor) of aperture f/2.0, four-axis OIS, three-axis EIS, and 4K video recording capabilities. Up front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera. It also features Pixel Master 3.0 technology, which offers more than 20 camera modes, including a manual mode.

Battery: OnePlus 3T features a 3,400mAh battery with Dash Charging feature that can charge the smartphone from 0-100 percent in one hour 30 minutes. The Pixel XL is armed with a 3,450mAh battery with Power Delivery fast charging feature that charge the smartphone from 0-100 percent in about two hours. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe is powered by a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support. ALSO READ: OnePlus 3T Dash Charge vs Google Pixel XL Power Delivery: Video demonstrates which is faster

Connectivity: All three smartphones feature 4G LTE with VoLTE voice calling support, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and GPS. While OnePlus 3T and Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe also come with dual SIM card slots, the Pixel XL is a single SIM smartphone. All smartphones also feature USB Type-C port for data transfer and charging.

Operating system: The OnePlus 3T boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow based OxygenOS out of the box, and Android 7.0 Nougat update will be rolled out soon. The Pixel XL runs on Android 7.1 Nougat, along with Google Assistant, which is exclusive to Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, with Asus ZenUI 3.0 running on top.

Purely looking from the specifications point of view, the OnePlus 3T indeed looks like a great value for money. Thankfully, OnePlus has kept the price difference between the 64GB variants of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T at just Rs 2,000, so it won’t pinch especially considering most of the upgrades are mostly optics than making any significant performance differences.
