Now, if you’re interested in checking out the aforementioned chart, you’ll find it right below this article.

As you can see, the OnePlus 5 beats both the Galaxy S8 and the Google Pixel XL. For example, the device 12 seconds, on average, to fully open Asphalt 8: Airborne game.

There are three additional game tests that you can check out down below, if you’re interested. Now, as far as apps concerned, there are quite a few apps listed down below, including Facebook, Gmail. Google Maps, Spotify, Twitter, etc. The OnePlus 5 managed to fully open Facebook in 3.9 seconds (on average), while the Galaxy S8 managed to do the same in 4.7 seconds (on average). It took the Google Pixel XL 5.1 seconds to do the same thing, once again, these are average times. Neither of the iPhone-branded phones are listed here, which is a shame, but it makes sense considering we’re looking at a completely different OS here.

The OnePlus 5 will launch during the summer, OnePlus already confirmed that, and chances are it will arrive next month, considering that its predecessor was announced back in June 2016. The OnePlus 5 is expected to sport a dual camera setup on the back, and it will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC. The phone will probably ship with a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display, and it will pack in 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Android 7.1.1 Nougat will come pre-installed on the device, and on top of it, you’ll get the company’s custom skin, OxygenOS. That’s pretty much all the info that we have at the moment, do keep in mind these specs are not confirmed or anything of the sort, they were mentioned in a number of rumors, however, and the phone also leaked a number of times thus far.
