OnePlus 11 vs iQOO 11 5G vs Samsung Galaxy S23 - Display & Design :

The OnePlus 11 features a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display with a 120Hz varianble refresh rate, it also supports Dolby Vision and offers an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The iQOO 11 flaunts a 6.78-inch E6 AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 2K display quality and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

Samsung Galaxy S23 offers a smaller 6.1-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a variable refresh rate of 120Hz depending on the usage.

Hence, iQOO 11 is the best in terms of display among the three.

OnePlus 11 is built with premium materials with a full metal chassis and frame, with glass topped back panel with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

iQOO 11 has a unique approach to design and comes in its Alpha model with a textured finish over glass on black and the BMW edition with leather finish over white with the classic racy BMW stripes.

Samsung has the minimalistic design approach with the Galaxy S23, which is the smallest in the S23 flagship series. It looks sleek and elegant and very similar to last year’s S22 model.

Looks are subjective, so we’re not picking a winner in this department.

OnePlus 11 vs iQOO 11 5G vs Samsung Galaxy S23 - Performance & Software :

OnePlus 11 gets powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset backed by 8GB or 16GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The device runs on Android 13 topped with OxygenOS 13.

The iQOO 11 has the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor backed by up to 16GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage. This handset also runs on Android 13 OS topped with the Funtouch OS 13.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 also packs in the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and is backed by 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It comes with the better OneUI 5.1 skin on top of the Android 13 OS.

All the three devices should offer equally good performance. However, the iQOO’s UI contains bloatware, while the Samsung device doesn’t have 16GB RAM option, hence, OnePlus 11 is the safer bet.
