For starters, you may examine the entire specs sheets or straight proceed with our editor’s evaluation within the following textual content.

Measurement comparability

The OnePlus 12 and Samsung Galaxy S24 Extremely are each very giant units. It ought to come as no shock with their 6.82 and 6.8-inch respective show diagonals. The OnePlus is arguably simpler to deal with single-handedly on account of its taller and narrower kind. With a width of 79 mm, the Galaxy is frankly an excessive amount of for most individuals to comfortably stretch their thumb throughout.

In case you are not versed in IP rankings, meaning each telephones have the very best doable stage six safety in opposition to strong particles and differ of their water safety.

Each units have their ups and downs in dealing with and in-hand really feel. Neither is especially straightforward to wild one-handed, however we might most likely say that the OnePlus, with its curvier physique each on the back and front, sits a bit extra comfortably within the hand. On the flip facet, we did just like the subjective ergonomics of the newly flattened show of the S24 Extremely higher.

Coloration and visible design-wise, neither telephone is basically pushing the envelope. The OnePlus 12 arguably has the extra “on the market” end choice within the Flowy Emerald variant. Then once more, Samsung has a wider coloration selection, significantly should you depend the colorways obtainable completely by way of the Samsung retailer.

Lastly, earlier than we end this part, we have to point out the S Pen on the Galaxy S24 Extremely since we can’t get a greater alternative. It stays some of the versatile and well-integrated, to not point out one of many final obtainable telephones with bundled pressure-sensitive stylus. It is one of many S24 Extremely’s distinctive options.

Show comparability

Each telephones have fairly enormous shows – 6.82 inches on the OnePlus 12 and 6.8 inches on the Galaxy S24 Extremely. We already talked about that they’ve barely completely different side ratios.

You possibly can technically count on to get the identical sharpness and picture readability from both gadget.

Samsung has put a particular anti-reflective coating on the S24 Extremely show completely this yr, which does scale back reflections fairly noticeably, however one in every of its arguably small however nonetheless current downsides can be a little bit of diminished picture readability. It is vitally delicate, and most customers most likely will not discover it, so we can’t maintain it in opposition to the Galaxy and can have fun its wonderful anti-reflective properties as an alternative.

In fact, there are different methods of battling reflection, notably by way of show brightness. The OnePlus 12 is marketed alongside a frankly ridiculous-sounding max brightness determine of 4,500 nits, whereas the Galaxy S24 Extremely markets a “measly” 2,600 nits. Nonetheless, these numbers are wildly complicated since they’re achieved in vastly other ways and eventualities. In our standardized brightness testing, the S24 Extremely managed 1,447 nits of max brightness, in comparison with 1,155 nits on the OnePlus 12. Each are very respectable figures that permit for a superb expertise even in direct daylight, which is the essential bit, however ensure to not get fooled by advertising on this level.

For some inexplicable purpose, in our e-book, Samsung nonetheless makes use of 8-bit coloration panels even in its greatest flagship. It gives HDR10+ assist and no Dolby Imaginative and prescient, however that’s much more comprehensible given the continuing HDR format wars.

On the subject of colours, we’ll be aware that the S24 Extremely had fairly a muted coloration rendition on launch, even in Vivid mode. Samsung has already addressed the difficulty through a software program replace. We cannot go so far as saying that the entire alleged show problems with the S24 Extremely have been addressed, however a minimum of the colours are much more saturated post-update. You possibly can dig into the entire fiasco additional if you’re .

Each telephones supply 120Hz refresh fee and LTPO tech for dynamic refresh fee switching.
