Camera test: OnePlus 5 vs iPhone 7

21 June 2017 3

With the OnePlus 5 launch finally over with, it is time for comparisons between the phone and its various competitors. YouTube channel TechBuzz decided to test the much talked-about camera of the phone which has gone out of its way to credit iPhone 7 Plus with bringing the dual camera technology to the world.

The first name that pops in anybody's mind when talking about smartphone cameras is the iPhone. So, TechBuzz compared the cameras of OnePlus 5 and iPhone 7. For those who do not know much about the technical specs of both of the camera's phones here they are:

As you can see from the video, it is very clear that both the phones give out a very beautiful picture, but OnePlus 5 has a far greater depth and detail because of the dual-cameras.The camera stabilisation also favours the OnePlus 5 more as the video is very much stabilised and not shaky. The OnePlus 5 captured the natural light very well and gives better and more realistic images where the iPhone 7 fails because of the single camera. The low-light condition also put the OnePlus 5 on top.

We can say that OnePlus 5 has fared better than iPhone 7 in this test. But, the real test that we all have been waiting for would be the one with iPhone 7 Plus. Both dual-camera phones will be put to test.

When you watch this video, only then you come to know the importance of dual cameras and how they are better than single camera to the back. OP 5 is better than iPhone 7 here.
