With all the excitement surrounding Samsung’s 2019 flagship smartphone, we thought it would be interesting to see how the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ stack up against the cameras on the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus has typically trailed the competition in the camera department, but the company stepped up its camera game in 2018 with the OnePlus 6 and the newer OnePlus 6T.

There’s no denying that the Samsung Galaxy S10+ has the upper hand when it comes to camera specs. Samsung’s phone features a total of five cameras.  The three-sensor camera setup on the back includes a 12MP main sensors paired with an f/1.5-2.4, 26mm lens and a second 12MP sensor with an f/2.4, 52mm (telephoto) lenses.

The last two camera sensors are on the front of the phone: a 10 MP sensor with an f/1.9, 26mm lens setup and an 8MP, f/2.2, 22mm depth-sensor/lens setup. 

The OnePlus 6T has two cameras on the back and a single camera up front. The dual-sensor camera array on the back of the phone is comprised of a 16MP main sensor with an f/1.7 lens while the secondary 20MP sensor is there to capture depth information. The front-facing camera on the OnePlus 6T has a 16MP sensor as well, paired with an f/2.0 lens.
