In recent years budget flagships have started to become popular among many smartphone users since they offer an excellent balance between performance and an affordable price tag.
The Asus ROG Phone 2 has been a big hit among users, but many are looking forward to the release of the OnePlus 7T. To help prospective buyers this article will offer a brief comparison between the two devices, based on the specs which have been confirmed in the case of OnePlus 7T.
Asus markets the ROG Phone 2 as a device designed from the ground up with gaming in mind, and this is easy to see at first sight. The device sports clean edges and a classy RGB logo. Glass and aluminum offer a sturdy frame which is accompanied by spaces for the dual-front speakers. In the case of the OnePlus 7T the design is more minimalistic, with thin bezels and a stylish matte finish for the glass.
An AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and less than 1ms latency offer a great experience for the owners of the ROG Phone 2. OnePlus opted for the same 90Hz display which can be found on the OnePlus seven but some users may not like the notch, which is missing from Asus’s offering.
Both devices are powered by Qualcomm’s finest in the form of the beefy Snapdragon 855+ SoC. OnePlus opted to pair the chip with up to 12GB of RAM and 256 of internal storage space. Asus also offers up to 12GB of RAM but ups the internal storage space to 512 GB based on the lightning-fast UFS 3.0 standard.
Smile for the camera
While the ROG Phone 2 is geared towards the camera the dual camera setup present on the rear can shoot impressive images thanks to a 48MP sensor and a 13MP ultra-wide sensor. On the front we can find a 24MP camera. OnePlus 7T comes with a triple camera setup on the rear, consisting of a 48MP sensor, a 12MP telephoto camera, and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor. The front camera will sport a 16MP sensor and EIS.
