Not only is competition the new 3T OnePlus by other low-cost Chinese, but that in recent years we have also seen large manufacturers bet strong enough by phablets upper-middle range that moves precisely in this price range, as it is the case of Lenovo with the Moto Z Play, a more affordable version of its flagship It would still be above their most popular mid-range models. What about standing out when we measure your technical specifications with the of a champion of the quality/price ratio as it is the phablet of OnePlus? We are going to see it in this comparison.
One of the points where this Bike Z Play rises above others of the middle range of the company is in the use of a metal housing, which puts you on equal footing in terms of materials and finishes with the OnePlus 3T, although betting on design are something different. The two have, in addition, fingerprint reader.
While the difference is not too large, the first victory for the OnePlus phablet we have to compare their respective dimensions, since this is clearly quite compact (15.27 x 7.47 cm front 15.64 x 7.64 cm) and, though difficult to see with the naked eye, also slightly thinner (7.4 mm to 7 mm) and light (158 grams against 165 grams).
Absolute tie in the screen section, with 5.5 inch and Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution in both cases, which, logically, is that they also have the same density of pixels (401 PPI). The two used AMOLED panels while the OnePlus 3T is Optic AMOLED and Moto Z Play is Super AMOLED.
The most notable difference in terms of hardware is probably found in the performance section, since the OnePlus 3T mounted a Snapdragon 821 (four cores and 2.35 GHz) to which accompany 6 GB of RAM, while the Moto Z Play we have a Snapdragon 625 of eight cores and 2.0 GHz, with “only” 3 GB of RAM.
In terms of storage capacity, the distribution of points is essential: If we want to have much more internal memory better, OnePlus 3T would be the winner with 64 GB (versus 32 GB); If, on the contrary, we care more available card slot micro-SD and so expand it externally, we should opt for the Moto Z Play.
As regards the main cameras we have an almost absolute tie, with two cameras 16 MP and aperture f/2.0, although the OnePlus 3T enrolls a much extra to have optical image stabilizer. Their advantage, however, is quite clear with respect to the front camera, mostly in number of megapixels (16 MP facing 5 MP) but also when it comes to opening (f/2.0 to f/2.2).
The balance leans on the side of the Bike Z Play, on the other hand, when we move to the paragraph of autonomy, at least with regard to the capacity of their respective batteries (3400 mAh face 3510 mAh), although the difference is not much and taking into account that consumption is a factor just as important (does not seem that there is reason for differing too priori (, but can not discard until we have independent tests) could we find to be victory in the real evidence of use for the OnePlus 3T.
I already used that yes I had chosen the Moto Z Play as opponent for the OnePlus 3T is precisely because of the proximity of their prices which, indeed, is very large: the first can be purchased for 450 euros while the second is sold for 440 euros. The difference, as you can see, is minimal and invites more rating points respective strengths and weaknesses of each in its design and technical specifications.
