OnePlus5T ORGalaxy S8 if price is the same?

Hi everyone. I am between purchasing the new OnePlus5T and the Galaxy S8. The price of the 5T (the upscale 8ram, 128 storage) is the same as the Galaxy S8. With that in mind, is there a clear winner between the two that I should opt for? Thanks for your tips

ThanksHappy It just seems that many reviews concentrate on the affordable price of the 5T compared to other phones. But now the price is the same I am not sure.

Here's why I never bought the OnePlus models.

In reply to: Thanks

When they came out you could only buy if someone referred you. Sorry but if you have a product, you have to make it available for sale. No cheesy "you're in the club now" for me.

The Galaxy 8 is very nice. Here I'd choose that.

The S8

In reply to: OnePlus5T ORGalaxy S8 if price is the same?

For starters, I'ld do a review of the 5T this week so stay tuned
Both devices are great, but the Oneplus wins when it comes to price/quality. However, if they're at the same price... The Galaxy S8 has everything that the 5T has, but a better camera, an expandable storage, more premium feel, I don't recall other differences but, for the same price, just pick de Galaxy S8

If have to, go for S8

In reply to: OnePlus5T ORGalaxy S8 if price is the same?

I bought OnePlus5 on first day of release, had to set alarm clock to remind me of the releasing time because the stock runs out in less than 2 minutes... OnePlus5T may face the same issue here, you have to try very hard to get one.
Back to the question. S8 looks better, feels better in the hand, much much much better screen, has IP68 warterproof (which is very important for me because i take the phone to shower everyday) and much much better camera. But OnePlus5 performs better (many games just dont run as smooth on S8, even tho the specs are nearly identical), has much better battery life (seriously! ) . I assume 5T is similar, if not better than 5 in these aspects.

So if you are into gaming, go for Oneplus, the gaming experience is the top in the market
But if you want better camera and waterproof, go for S8
If you have to choose, i would recommend S8 because you can solve the battery problem with a power bank, and the inferior AMOLED screen OP uses sores my eyes. But i strongly recommend S8+, if budget allows. I had one before, exchanged it for S8, huuuuuge regret. S8+ has much better battery life than S8, and somehow feels smoother than S8, too (don;t know why because they are supposed to be the same)

of course Samsung S8

if the price is the same, i will absolutely choose Samsung S8, because it is so nice, and waterproof.
i will buy 5 pieces if their price is about 100$
