If we talk about design and display, then there’s no challenge: Meizu 15 is miles above. It features a full metal unibody design with stainless paintless and huge attention to details. The phone has been designed by President Jack Wong who personally took care of its development. The display is an outstanding panel: a 5.95-inch screen with the classic 16:9 aspect ratio, Super AMOLED technology, and a Quad HD resolution. It is a bigger display than the one of OnePlus 5T and it also provides higher detail. Further, Meizu 15 Plus has stereo speakers, so it is an excellent phone to watch movies, videos and listen to music. Both Meizu 15 Plus and OnePlus 5T are equipped with top-end hardware, but we think OnePlus 5T will be way faster because of its stock and lightweight Android experience and its wonderful software optimization.
Meizu 15 Plus looks better when it comes to camera department with a low level of noise in low light conditions, stunning details and accurate focus in daylight. There should not be so much difference between the battery lives of these devices. They feature similar capacities and both support fast charging technologies. OnePlus 5T comes with Nougat out of the box (upgradable to Oreo) and no micro SD, while Meizu 15 Plus comes with Flyme 7 based on Nougat which is a highly customized fork with hundreds of additional features.
Meizu 15 Plus has a launch price of $474/€388 in China, while OnePlus 5T starts from €499/$499 globally. Even though OP5T is probably a faster device, we would pick Meizu 15 Plus for its camera performance, aesthetics and multimedia-related specs.
