galaxy a8 vs oneplus 2

Earlier today, Samsung launched its super-sleek Galaxy A8 in India, priced at Rs 32,500. This new smartphone is a far cry from the other A-series smartphones in terms of design, and is more in tune with Samsung’s current flagships. Comparisons will no doubt be made against the recently launched ‘flagship killer’ OnePlus 2, which offers specifications on par with Samsung’s smartphones, yet is far more affordable. We compare the two smartphones on the basis of their specifications and features to see which comes up top.

Processor
The OnePlus has a slight edge out here with a Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor paired with a 4GB RAM. In comparison, the Galaxy A8 has an Exynos 5340 quad-core processor with 2GB RAM. On paper, the Snapdragon 810 processor is more powerful, but during our usage we found the OnePlus 2 to heat up.

Storage
The Galaxy A8 offers expandable storage option via a microSD slot, while the OnePlus 2 doesn’t. The Galaxy A8 has 32GB storage options, while the OnePlus 2 comes with 64GB internal memory.

Camera
In the megapixel game, the A8 has a 16-megapixel rear sensor as compared to the OnePlus 2 which has a 13-megapixel rear camera. Both the smartphones have a 5-megapixel selfie camera. We cannot really ascertain the camera quality on the megapixels as other features and editing tools also need to be taken into account. Hence, we reserve our opinion until we do a detailed review.

Battery
The OnePlus 2 has a slightly larger 3,300mAh batter, while the Galaxy S8 has a 3,050mAh battery.

OS
Both the smartphones run on Android 5.1 Lollipop, but the OnePlus 2 comes with some customization under the garb of its custom-made Oxygen OS. In comparison, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI also brings in design changes and some additional features.

Conclusion
The OnePlus 2 is high on specifications and would be attractive to tech savvy consumers. The Galaxy A8, however, has a more premium design and decent specifications.
