Sure, smartphones are more expensive than they have ever been. However, if you know where to search, you may discover numerous phone makers working diligently to bring their greatest technology down to more reasonable rates. Consider the $599 OnePlus 7T and the $699 iPhone 11.
Both of those flagship phones maintain a lot of the features seen in much more costly smartphones. They’re both powered by top-tier mobile CPUs, come with multi-lens cameras, and have carefully designed looks that encapsulate their low costs. True, the OnePlus 7T and iPhone 11 lack feature such as pop-out selfie cameras, 5G connection, and ultrahigh picture screens.
So, which not-as-expensive-as-it-looks smartphone gives you the best bang for your buck? Please read to see how the OnePlus 7T and the iPhone 11 compare.
Would you prefer an incredibly bright panel or one that is dark but generates more vivid images? That is the option provided by the iPhone 11 and the OnePlus 7T.
Apple’s iPhone has an LCD panel, which means it lacks the same rich colors and deep blacks as more sophisticated OLED panels, such as the one seen in the OnePlus 7T.
The OnePlus 7T has a trio of sensors on the rear, featuring normal wide, ultrawide, and telephoto lenses, making it rather flexible in terms of smartphone photography. However, even with a 48-megapixel camera, the quality of the images it produces can’t compete with Apple’s expertise of computational photography on display in the iPhone 11’s twin 12-megapixel lenses.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor found within the OnePlus 7T is the most powerful CPU available for Android phones today. Even with 8GB of RAM, the 7T can’t keep up with Apple’s A13 Bionic hardware.
Geekbench 5, a measure of overall user satisfaction, gave the iPhone 11 a score of 3,251. The OnePlus 7T reached a price of $2,759. The iPhone 11 is also better in graphics rendering, delivering 1,481 frames at 23 frames per second on GFXBench’s Aztec Ruins off-screen test. The OnePlus 7T gave up after 1,169 frames at 18 frames per second.
Despite its speed, the 7T cannot outperform Apple’s in-house system-on-chip in benchmarks. However, in most situations, you won’t notice a difference in performance. The iPhone 11 may be able to flex its greater muscle in more demanding games, but the difference is small.
Battery Life & Phone’s Charging
In comparison to the OnePlus 7T, the iPhone 11 has a smaller battery. As per teardowns of Apple’s handset, the 3,046 mAh battery pack inside the iPhone 11 is somewhere around 20% smaller than the 3,800 mAh unit that runs the OnePlus 7T.
Despite this, the iPhone lasted the longest on a charge in our tests, with 11 hours and 16 minutes of website streaming over T-LTE Mobile’s network before running out of energy. The OnePlus 7T lasted 8 hours and 47 minutes, which is much less than the average for a smartphone in our test.
With the included adapter, the OnePlus 7T can charge quicker right out of the box. OnePlus’ Warp Charge 30T technology charged the device from 0 to 61% in 30 minutes. The iPhone 11’s default brick can’t accomplish that; users will have to pay an additional $50 for Apple’s USB Type-C brick and accompanying cable, which can charge the iPhone 11 to 50% in half an hour.
The iPhone 11 can also charge wirelessly for what it’s worth, which no OnePlus phone has done too far.
Some Special Features & Software
It is the lives of two operating systems. The OnePlus 7T runs Android 10, which is supplemented with OnePlus’ proprietary OxygenOS 10.0 front end, which adds a number of features to Google’s software. Meanwhile, iOS 13 runs here on iPhone 11.
The platform you choose is most likely a matter of personal choice or whatever ecosystem you are more involved in.
The OnePlus 7T is $100 less expensive than the cheapest iPhone 11, which costs $699 for a 64GB variant. You’ll have to pay $749 for an iPhone 11 with the same 128GB of storage as the OnePlus 7T.
The iPhone 11 256GB costs $849, and OnePlus does not sell a larger capacity version of their handset. Though neither handset supports additional storage through microSD memory cards, you’re limited to the space you’re provided.

It all boils down to whether you prefer an iOS or an Android smartphone. There will be no performance concerns with either of them. I believe the iPhone 11 has a superior camera. It is likewise water-resistant and enables wireless charging, however it has an LCD display, whereas the OnePlus 7t has an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90hz, which is a feeling of relief to that of the iPhone. Both devices feature a high-end appearance and price.
