1. Camera (iPhone 7 Plus Selling Point)
Apple is focusing on marketing the iPhone 7 Plus over iPhone 7 because of the Dual Camera, which shoots better snaps in different light conditions. The quality of the pictures and the zooming tricks will help snap better photos on a daily basis.
In OnePlus 5, the manufacturers wanted to dominate the iPhone 7 Plus capabilities, which they were unsuccessful at it because they had to deliver within a price bracket.
The OnePlus have replicated the rear design of the iPhone. When you place the two smartphones side-by-side, you can notice it. However, OnePlus is not known for camera performance but it does a decent job for a high-end Android smartphone.
iPhone 7 Plus equipped with dual camera, which is horizontally arranged, which is similar to the OnePlus 5. The camera of both smartphones includes a Telephoto and Wide angle lens. The iPhone 7 Plus packed with two stunning 12MP rear cameras with 7MP front-facing camera. The iPhone 7 Plus comes with 4k Video shooting capabilities, OIS, and Quad LED flash.

2. Design & Feel – OnePlus 5 vs iPhone 7 Plus
The moment of the truth, iPhone 7 Plus designers must be laughing, while OnePlus 5 designers are pretty confused over the designs. OnePlus 5 is a poorly copied iPhone 7 Plus design, which is a flaw because most of the copied smartphone emerge from China.

As conventional, the rear design is replicated as well. The curves are rounded up on the edges, while the antenna lines are covered with a hard metal coating, the logo is in the middle with a true tone flash, and an additional mic.
iPhone 7 Plus has put an end to the 3.5mm jack, while you can add a regular headset to OnePlus 5. It does feel elegant, durable and rich in your palms but iPhone has much more premium look and feels to it.
It took a while for Apple to add adhesive to make their smartphones Water-resistant, and on the other hand, OnePlus 5 has missed joining the likes of Apple, and Samsung.
Result: We are calling it a Draw.
3. Display – Cutting-Edge Screen
Finally, OnePlus has packed one unique feature, which can beat the traditional Display of an iPhone. iPhone has bundled the 7 Plus with a 5.5inches/1080P LCD screen, while Oneplus is a step ahead with a stunning 5.5inches/1080P AMOLED display, which guarantees the Clarity, Contrast, and Brightness. OnePlus has an edge here with the details the smartphone can view slightly close to the Apple flagship device.
However, the 401ppi (pixels per inch) screens provide excellent brightness, contrast and clarity. But there is one main difference: the iPhone uses an LCD, while the OnePlus 5 goes for AMOLED, which means incredible contrast that help photos and other media shine.
There are no fundamental differences when you compare the Pixel per inches as they both cover 401ppi. It goes without saying that the OnePlus can deliver much detailing, and gaming visuals will be superior to the Apple flagship.
Results: OnePlus 5.
