Some of the key features of the OnePlus 3 include all metal body, Dash Charge support, powerful specifications, and competitive price. The company also released a slightly upgraded version of this handset, named as the OnePlus 3T.
OnePlus is one of the most popular smartphone brands and hence many phone makers attempts to challenge it. This time, Vernee has introduced a new smartphone called Vernee Apollo which competes with OnePlus 3T. Let’s see where the Vernee Apollo stands in a battle against the OnePlus 3T.
Look and Feel
Both OnePlus 3T and Vernee Apollo features all-metal body design language with metal coverage of up to 98 percent on their rear panel except the antenna bands. Both the smartphones come in relatively square shape and offer the unique texture of metal.
Coming to the display, the OnePlus 3T features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) AMOLED display with 401PPI pixel density. While so, the Vernee Apollo offers a 5.5-inch 2K display with 541PPI pixel density. The display of Apollo is simply clever.
Furthermore, the Vernee Apollo offers true VR experience thanks to the VR Box which is included in the package. The 2K display of the Apollo is competent to give you the pleasure of wonderful Virtual Reality experience.
Hardware and Performance
The OnePlus 3T smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor clocked at 2.35GHz, whereas the Vernee Apollo boasts a MediaTek Helio X25 deca-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz. The graphics on OnePlus 3T is handled by Adreno 530 GPU while the Apollo sports a Mali T880 GPU.
The Helio X25 has an upper hand over the Snapdragon 821 chipset due to its deca-core compatibility. It can easily handle 3D games and 2K/4K super clear video playback. The three-cluster deca-core architecture on Vernee Apollo provides optimum performance and extended battery life. Although, regular smartphone usage doesn’t require that much power in terms of performance. So you won’t notice any major difference in real-time usage of both smartphones.
The OnePlus 3T receives the acceleration from its 6GB of RAM which is higher than the 4GB of Vernee Apollo. While so, it is notable that the latest smartphones of the age, Samsung Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge still utilizes a 4GB of RAM in it. So the RAM difference won’t influence the overall user experience.
The OnePlus 3T offers 16MP cameras both at the front and rear panel. The Vernee Apollo has a 21MP primary rear camera and an 8MP front shooter for selfies and video call.
The OnePlus 3T scores high in AnTuTu benchmark and is more practical in overall functionality and balance. Additionally, the Apollo has a 2K display which is ideal for VR experience.
The OnePlus 3T offers 20W Dash Charge feature whereas the Vernee Apollo has an 18W Vcharge. The fast charging features on both devices are almost the same; however, OnePlus 3T charges a little faster than Apollo.
Lastly, there comes the pricing and availability. The OnePlus 3T smartphone is available in India at price of Rs 29,999; while the Vernee Apollo is yet to arrive in India. The Vernee Apollo is priced at $299 (roughly Rs 21,999) for the 4GB model. The Vernee Apollo is yet to be launched in India.
The OnePlus 3T smartphone is perfect for those who don’t care about the price all they need is performance. While the Apollo is a good option for those who wants to taste the cost-effective VR experience and a decent handset.
