OnePlus has just recently released its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 3. It comes with some really powerful specs, which is why it was called a flagship killer. However, when it comes to comparing flagships, Samsung’s S7 Edge is used as a reference, since it integrates advanced components and has been quite successful on the market.
OnePlus 3 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge have been put to the test, to determine which of the smartphones is faster and performs better when given complex applications to run. The video bywas uploaded on YouTube and it shows how the smartphones performed in a speedtest.
It’s worth mentioning that the team from C4ETech took all external factors into consideration, so that the test results would be accurate and reliable. In that sense, all kinds of power saving options were turned off on both devices, they have been factory reset and no apps were running in the background of the phones.

The next game that was opened was Asphalt 8 and OnePlus 3 continued to lag behind the Galaxy S7 Edge, despite the fact that it had a higher RAM capacity of 6GB.

In conclusion, OnePlus 3 clearly lost the speed test in favor of the Galaxy S7 Edge, meaning that OnePlus should really improve RAM management on its “flagship killer”. Samsung is expected to incorporate 6GB of RAM on its upcoming Galaxy Note 7, which will also have an.
