Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition vs OnePlus 5T vs iPhone 6s: Verdict
Of the three, the iPhone 6s got outclassed by both the Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition and the OnePlus 5T. And between the two Android phones, the OnePlus 5T gets a slight edge for one reason alone — its superior processor. The Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition is a great phone with a beautiful display and great camera offerings, but the OnePlus 5T, being the highly-optimised, incredibly powerful, butter-smooth phone it is, gets our vote for being the best of the two.
