OnePlus One vs iPhone 6: Today, we compare the two amazing mobile phones from last year – the OnePlus One vs the iPhone 6.

iPhone 6 vs. OnePlus One Final Verdict:

In my opinion, if we keep aside the price factor (which is though a huge factor) and the OS factor, the iPhone 6 is my personal choice between these two devices. Yes, I hear you, I accept the specs of OnePlus One beat iPhone 6’s specs, but that is ‘on paper’, in the real world usage, the iPhone 6 just shines, the OnePlus One on the other hand, gives some hint of laggy-ness once in a while, when performing processor-heavy tasks.

Other than that, the OnePlus One is a very impressive device.
