The OnePlus 5 has been described as the Android iPhone due to its design that obviously borrows from Apple’s highly popular handset. But besides being called an iPhone 7 lookalike, the 5 is also known as the flagship killer for its power-packed features and hardware. Apple’s latest smartphone, however, is still one of the best camera phones in the industry, and it remains to be seen if the flagship killer can go lens-to-lens with the iPhone 7.

OnePlus 5 – Camera specs and features

The latest OnePlus flagship comes with a dual main camera. The rear setup produces significantly detailed images with vibrant colours thanks to the 16 MP Sony IMX 398 sensor – with 24 mm f/1.7 lens and electronic image stabilisation (EIS) – and the 36 mm 20 MP f/2.6 telephoto lens that comes with dual LED flash, phase detection autofocus and 1.6x optical zoom.

The Sony sensor is capable of absorbing more light for crisp photos, and the auto HDR feature handles the glaring sun’s quality-altering ways. The EIS feature is likewise terrific, but it should be more consistent. The OnePlus 5 main shooter produces a variety of silky videos, including 720p videos in slow motion or at 30 FPS, FHD videos at either 30 FPS or 60 FPS, and 4K videos at 30 FPS.

For its secondary camera, the handset has a 16 MP selfie shooter with 20 mm f/2.0 lens. It also comes with EIS, just like its dual camera companion, and packs a lot of details into its snaps. Users can record quality 1080p videos of themselves at 30 FPS with the front camera, with auto HDR to boot.

Apple iPhone 7 – Camera specs and features

The Cupertino, California-based tech giant’s soon-to-be-former flagship sports a 12 MP primary snapper that comes with a 28 mm f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus and quad-LED (dual tone) flash. The iPhone 7 separates itself from its predecessor with optical image stabilisation (OIS), which helps produce steady shots despite bumpy circumstances. Aside from OIS, the rear camera also has 4K video and 8 MP image recording capabilities alongside face detection, touch focus and HDR.

The Mac maker’s latest handset has a 7 MP secondary camera located at the front that comes with 32 mm f/2.2 lens. Despite the obviously low megapixel count, at least compared to that of its doppelganger, the iPhone 7 front camera is as good as it gets when it comes to selfie shots and captures. It also records sparkling FHD videos at 30 FPS as well as 720p slow motion videos at an awesome 240 FPS.
