Asus Zenfone 5Z Vs OnePlus 6... Which one is better for you?

The Asus Zenfone 5Z and Oneplus 6, both are powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC come with a notched display. But which one should you buy??

 OnePlus 6 was capturing the market because of its flagship grade specifications at a price which was much lower than that of other flagships. But recently, Asus launched its new Zenfone 5Z which is the new flagship of the company. And the price at which Asus launched this Smartphone in India blew the minds of everyone. The starting price of the Asus Zenfone 5Z is Rs 5,000 cheaper than that of the OnePlus 6. But an affordable price alone cannot make a smartphone superior; so lets compare both of these Smartphones and find out which one should we buy.

Starting up with the display and build quality of both the Smartphones, both the phones are built really well and both of them have a premium look. The Glass and metal build of both the phones look good but the back panel of both the phones are fingerprint magnets. Now talking about the display, Oneplus 6 has a 6.28 inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED display with a notch on the top and the Asus Zenfone 5Z has a 6.2 inch Super IPS+ display and this one also has a notch. As the OnePlus 6 is having an AMOLED display, the display quality is really good. But this does not mean that the Asus Zenfone 5Z has a poor display, despite of being an IPS+ panel, the display quality is really good, the colors are punchy and it exceeded my expectations. So in terms of Build quality and display, I think both the phone are good and picking up a single winner is a bit difficult.

Coming next to the Camera department, both of the Smartphones' have dual rear cameras and a single selfie shooter. The dual rear cameras on the Asus Zenfone 5Z include a 12 MP primary shooter with f/1.8 aperture and the secondary lens is a 8 MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture. And the rear cameras on the OnePlus 6 include a 16 MP main shooter and a 20 MP secondary camera, both of them have an aperture of f/1.7. You must be thinking that because of the higher resolution, OnePlus 6 would take better photos than the Zenfone 5Z. But that's not the case. Asus has done a great job in the camera department and the low-light images on Asus Zenofne 5Z are better than the low light images taken on the OnePlus 6. However while taking photos in the daylight, both the phones perform equally well. Now talking about the selfie cameras, Zenfone 5Z has a 8 MP selfie shooter and OnePlus 6 has a 16 MP shooter. Both the cameras have an aperture of f/2.0. Here, OnePlus 6 takes a clear lead but this does not mean the Selfie camera of the Zenfone 5Z is not good. Selfies taken on the Zenfone 5Z are also good but if you want better Selfie photos, then OnePlus 6 should be your choice.

Both the phones have the option to record 4K videos at up to 60fps and both of them perform equally well when it comes to recording videos. Both the Smartphones are powered by the very powerful Snapdragon 845 SoC, so you'll not have any complaint regarding the performance in both of them. Both the Smartphones have 3300 mAh battery which can easily last for a day and as you know both the Smartphones support fast charging, so there's no problem regarding the battery department.

Asus Zenfone 5Z is sold exclusively via Flipkart and OnePlus 6 is an amazon exclusive Smartphone. The 6 GB/64 GB variant i.e. the base variant of both the Smartphones is priced at Rs 29,999 for the Asus Zenfone 5Z and Rs 34,999 in case of the OnePlus 6.

In Asus Zenfone 5Z you get the option to expand the storage of the device via a microSD card slot but OnePlus 6 does not have any microSD card slot. Both the devices come with their custom UIs and both the UIs are super smooth and fast.

So, you guys be the judge and tell us in the comment section, which phone would you prefer and why?
