Gadget experts with access to OnePlus 6 and iPhone X have already tested them for speed. The OnePlus 6 was released with the tagline ‘The speed you need’ and it lives up to expectations.

The battery on OnePlus 6 is slightly bigger when we compare battery to iPhone X. iPhone X carries a 2,716 mAh battery while the OnePlus 6 utilizes a 3,300 mAh battery. Given that the OnePlus 6 has a bigger screen and RAM to power, it would be interesting to see which device lasts longer.
In our tests, we saw that the phones have a screen on time of about 10 hours. This was tested on an LTE network and hence, it is evident that both devices have excellent battery optimization under the hood. It was a close race between the two, but the iPhone X outlasted OnePlus 6 by a few minutes.
Also, both devices feature fast charging. OnePlus 6 claims to charge up to 60 percent in 30 minutes, which was successfully tested. Similarly, iPhone X’s claims to charge 50 percent in 30 minutes were found to be true.
The only disappointment was that the iPhone X does not ship with a fast charger in the box.
