Both phones boast excellent display quality, but OnePlus deserves applause for minimizing the visibility of the crease to the point of being almost invisible. While the Z Fold impresses with its under-display camera, the OnePlus Open takes the cake with its vibrant, realistic colors and less visible crease.
Both devices showcase quality specs in the camera department. While I won't dive too deep into tech specs, it's worth noting that OnePlus has sported its best camera system yet (so they claim). In contrast, Samsung has yet to employ a flagship camera system for the Z Fold 5.
Software and User Interface
While this review might be a pre-software update for the OnePlus, I can't help but admire the Open Canvas feature in the OnePlus's OXYGEN 13.2. It revolutionizes multitasking, offering a desktop-like experience that outshines the Z Fold's simultaneous app display. Both phones, however, share similar Flex mode capabilities and offer seamless performance whether gaming, editing videos, or just hopping between apps.
Battery and Charging
Here, the OnePlus Open gains another point with its slightly superior battery life and the inclusion of a fast-charging brick, enabling a full charge in about 40 minutes compared to the Z Fold's 85-minute charge time — and you have to provide your charger for the latter.
