The OnePlus 5 is about to launch on June 20, according to the latest leak and although it's not confirmed news, I am pretty sure that it's not far from the actual date anyway. However, should that influence your decision to buy the Galaxy S8/S8+? Let's find out.


Similar but Not Same


The OnePlus 5 will feature the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is powering the Galaxy S8, but that's where the "sameness" ends in-between these two smartphones. The OnePlus 5 may sport a QHD AMOLED display as well, but it will most likely not be as good as the Super AMOLED QHD+ panels on the S8, because nothing really is at the moment! The OnePlus 5 may have an edge in the RAM department as it's rumoured to pack 8 gigs of RAM. We will have to wait on the camera quality though.


The Bottom Line


Yes, you should wait and the reason is not because I think that the OnePlus 5 will be better than the S8. The truth is that if you really like the Galaxy S8 for its screen, camera and design, the OnePlus 5 will probably not be able to deliver anything better than that. On the other hand, the OnePlus 5 will feature a better fingerprint scanner, a more responsive UI and most importantly, a price tag that will make the S8+ in particular, seem overpriced. The main reason I would suggest that you wait is because the OnePlus 5 will come out by the end of the month and since you have already held on for this long, why not a few more days?
