Our verdict

Comparing first the displays, the OnePlus 11 has a larger 6.7-inch Samsung LTPO 3.0 AMOLED screen while the Galaxy S23 is content with a 6.1-inch full-HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen. The Galaxy phone is better suited for people with smaller hands for comfortable single-handed use while the OnePlus device is better if you desire a bigger phone. 

The Samsung Galaxy S23 provides Gorilla Glass Victus 2, whilst the OnePlus 11 chooses the more dated Gorilla Glass 5. Although the OnePlus 11’s display is curved on the sides, the Galaxy S23’s display is brighter.

The most recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Soc powers both devices. However, Qualcomm specifically customised the one in the Galaxy for Samsung to perform faster.

Both smartphones have a triple rear camera arrangement in terms of optics, however, OnePlus boasts Hasselblad-branded sensors. A 5,000mAh battery powers the OnePlus 11 and supports 100W SuperVOOC fast charging. The Galaxy S23, on the other hand, has a smaller 3,900mAh battery and supports 25W wired charging and 15W wireless charging  Samsung offers a feature for wireless charging, however, the OnePlus 11 has a larger battery and supports faster charging. 

Even In terms of design, the two devices are completely opposite. The OnePlus 11 features an entry-level IP54 rating, which provides splash protection but no significant protection from drowning. On the other hand, the S23 has a complete IP68 rating. The OnePlus 11 is also less expensive than the Galaxy S23.

Which should you purchase, then? Your selection for the phone’s size will be the major deciding element in your decision to purchase. The handsets are compatible and reasonably priced, provided you strictly want or want wireless charging or an IP68 rating.
