In the last quarter of 2019, Samsung held 19% of the Indian smartphone market share. Samsung’s Galaxy S20 features some of the most superior specifications and was regarded as the best smartphone in India until recently. Towards the end of FY 2019, Google’s Pixel 4 was dominating the Android sector with a high screen refresh rate and excellent optics. And now, OnePlus recently introduced the high-end OnePlus 8 series, which boasts of several top-tier features. If you are looking for a first-rate mobile, you can take your pick from these three models. Here is a comparison to help you decide.
OnePlus 8 is a notch ahead with the industry-leading chipset Snapdragon 865. Samsung’s Exynos 9 Octa 990 is not far behind in performance. Both these mobiles outpace Pixel 4, which features the slightly dated Snapdragon 855 SoC. All three phones run on Android 10.
Samsung S20 sports 8GB/12GB RAM and 128GB storage, expandable up to a massive 1TB. OnePlus 8 offers 6GB/8GB/12GB RAM variants and 128GB/256GB internal storage options. But you cannot expand the memory in OnePlus 8. Pixel 4 too comes packed with a 6GB RAM and non-expandable 64GB/128GB memory variants.
The display on S20 is the winner with a 6.20-inch QHD+ AMOLED screen featuring a 120Hz refresh rate, offering smooth animations and sharp, clear visuals. OnePlus 8 has a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED screen with a decent 90Hz refresh rate and provides a pleasant viewing experience. Pixel 4 has a smaller 5.7-inch OLED screen with Full HD resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. You can enjoy watching movies or playing games with immersive visuals on these premium phones.
Samsung S20 has a 12MP primary sensor, a 64MP telephoto lens with 3X optical zoom, and a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens. It delivers superior image quality and vivid colors. Pixel 4 features a 12.2MP primary camera and a 16MP telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom, which was path-breaking back in 2019 but appears out-of-date today.

When it comes to charging, OnePlus soars ahead with 30W Warp Charging while S20 supports 25W fast charging technology. Pixel 4 falls behind with a meager 2800mAh battery that drains out fast. It features 18W fast charging.
