Samsung, today added a new product under their wide-range of product portfolio, namely, the Galaxy On Nxt, which as per the company is a new smartphone. However, going by the specifications, we must say that the smartphone is just the bumped up to version of the last month’s Galaxy J7 Prime and that too only in terms of storage.
In this comparison, we are keeping the new entrant against the company’s own Galaxy On8 and its Chinese counterpart, the Oppo F1s. Let’s find out which device you should buy in terms of specifications.
This year, Samsung has come a long way in terms of their smartphone’s design language. The company started offering the metal design in their mid-range smartphones as well. The Galaxy J7 Prime was the first one to do so, followed by the Galaxy On8 and they look premium. On the other hand, the Oppo F1s also features a metal design, but the phone looks strikingly similar to Apple iPhone 6 series.
It all depends on y0u now. The Galaxy On8 and On Nxt are the smartphones, which looks much better than the Oppo F1s, but if you’re looking for an iPhone lookalike device, then your choice obvious choice should be the Oppo F1s.
All the three smartphones have the same display size, which is 5.5-inch. But, both the Galaxy phones has FHD display TFT displays with a 2.5D curved glass. On the flip side, the Oppo F1s comes with only 720p screen, which is a bit of a letdown. However, in our Oppo F1s review, the smartphone’s display turned out to be much better than we expected. It is worth noticing that Samsung phones feature one of the best smartphone displays in the industry. Going by the specifications, the Galaxies win this segment by a long margin.
The Samsung Galaxy On Nxt features the same hardware as the last month’s Galaxy J7 Prime. And, the company haven’t revealed the chipset model for both smartphones, but it is a 1.6GHz octa-core chip. On the other hand, the Galaxy On8 comes with the company’s own Exynos 7580 octa-core processor with all the cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The Oppo F1s is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 processor, which is also an octa-core chip. We believe that all the three smartphones might handles day-to-day tasks with ease. So, it is up to you to choose between them.
All the three smartphones come with 13MP rear camera with PDAF technology and support for LED flash. But, the major difference comes in terms of the front-facing camera because the Oppo F1s comes with a 16MP front-facing shooter, which is the best in the industry. The Galaxy On8 comes with a 5MP front-facing camera and the new Galaxy On Nxt has an 8MP snapper on the front.
So, if you’re a selfie lover, then your go-to option should be the Oppo F1s. But, the Samsung selfie cameras aren’t bad either.
Software and Battery
Samsung’s mid-range phones have been in the limelight for a while now for their stupendous battery life offering. Both the Galaxy On8 and Galaxy On Nxt comes with a 3,300mAh battery and boots Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI on top it.
The Oppo F1s comes with a slightly lesser 3,075mAh battery and runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Oppo’s Color OS on top of it. The OS is slightly dated because the Android Nougat is already rolling out to several devices.
The Oppo F1s only excels in the camera department and falls behind the competition in terms of every other aspect. The Galaxy On8 and Galaxy Nxt has the best hardware and great design but has slightly weaker cameras. So, you should consider any of the mid-range Galaxy rather than go for the Oppo F1s.
