OnePlus 5 Speed Test Pits It Against Samsung Galaxy S8 and HTC U11; Gold Variant Spotted

Not too long ago, OnePlus released the OnePlus 5 handset which is reportedly the biggest story on the Internet as of now.


However, some interesting rumors quickly surfaced online claiming that company manipulated synthetic benchmark scores with its latest flagship smartphone after an investigation was carried out.

While the company’s initial response to the matter was far from convincing, the latest real world speed test comparison has revealed that the OnePlus 5 might actually have the hardware that can back the company’s tall claims to some degree.

Separately, a Mint Gold color variant of the smartphone has also been spotted getting clearance at a Chinese certification site.

In a speed comparison test video, posted on YouTube by Jeremy Ortega, OnePlus 5 can be seen outperforming other smartphones that also feature Snapdragon 835 SoC, i.e., HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8.

As a part of the performance test, Ortega launched 20 apps on all three smartphones, one after the other, in two successive rounds.

Notably, OnePlus 5 did not just manage to open all the apps faster than the other two smartphones under consideration, it managed to do so without breaking a sweat.


The Samsung Galaxy S8 and HTC U11 smartphones managed to go through two test rounds in around 2 minutes 19 seconds and 2 minutes 2 seconds respectively. However, OnePlus 5 managed to go through both rounds in around 1 minute 53 seconds.
