The Galaxy S20 is considerably more affordable than the S20 Ultra, while it is almost equally powerful. It is also considerably smaller than its siblings, which makes it a great phone to compare to the OnePlus 7T.
As per usual, we’ll compare these devices across a number of categories. We’ll kick things off with their specifications, and then move to the design, display, performance… and various other categories. That’s it, let’s compare the OnePlus 7T vs Galaxy S20, shall we.

OnePlus 7T vs Samsung Galaxy S20: Design
These two phones are somewhat similar in terms of the design. They do use the same build materials, their frame is made out of metal, while the glass is on the front and back. Both phones are curved on the back, quite a bit, and both include fairly thin bezels.
The Galaxy S20’s bezels are a hair thinner than the OnePlus 7T’s. The side bezels seem like they don’t exist at all, but that’s just the effect of the Galaxy S20’s slightly curved display. The OnePlus 7T has a really thin waterdrop notch at the top of its display, while the Galaxy S20 includes a display camera hole.
The OnePlus 7T sports a rather large round camera module on the back, which is centered. That camera module protrudes on the back, and it contains three cameras. The Galaxy S20 also offers three cameras on the back, though its cameras are located in the top-left corner.
Both companies include their brandings on the back, while non such brandings are visible on the front. Both phones have physical buttons on the right side. These two designs look great in their own regard, the only question is which one do you prefer.
The OnePlus 7T is heavier, and larger than the Galaxy S20, even though it’s not huge. Considering how compact the Galaxy S20 is, though, the OnePlus 7T does look large next to it. The Galaxy S20 is both shorter, narrower, and thinner than the OnePlus 7T, on top of being lighter. It does include a smaller display, though. So, it’s basically up to you, as both phones are really well built, and look great overall.
