Comparing the specifications of the two smartphones, the older OnePlus 11 smartphone is the best when compared to the Pixel 8 smartphone from Google.

First, when we look at the processors equipped within the devices, the Pixel 8 smartphone comes with the brand’s own Tensor G3 chipset, whereas the OnePlus 11 smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The Qualcomm chipset has a faster primary clock speed and is likely to offer a better performance than the Pixel 8 device which has the Tensor G3 chip.

Coming to the displays, the OnePlus 11 has a better LTPO3 Fluid AMOLED display, with a larger display screen of 6.7″, and a higher resolution of 1440 x 3216 pixels. The Pixel 8 smartphone features a 6.1″ OLED display panel with a 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. Both the devices support 120Hz refresh rate.

About the cameras, the OnePlus 11 smartphone sports a triple camera unit, while the Pixel 8 device offers a dual camera setup. The main camera(50MP) remains the same, but the OnePlus device offers a 48MP ultrawide camera, a better ultrawide lens than the 12MP ultrawide camera given on the Pixel smartphone. Additionally, the OnePlus smartphone also has a 32MP telephoto camera as well.

Even for the front-facing cameras too, the OnePlus 11 offers a 16MP selfie camera. Google’s Pixel 8 smartphone only has a 10.5MP front camera.

Finally regarding the battery backup, the OnePlus device packs the largest battery of 5,000 mAh and supports the fastest wired charging feature of 100W/80W. The Pixel 8 smartphone is backed by a 4,575 mAh battery with 27W wired fast charge support. However, the Pixel device offers an 18W wireless charging feature and a reverse wireless charging feature, both of which the OnePlus 11 smartphone lacks.

So, as mentioned, the OnePlus 11 smartphone doesn’t have wireless charging or reverse wireless charging support, but this doesn’t make the Pixel device better. Based on the overall specifications, the OnePlus 11 smartphone is itself the best flagship smartphone device in this comparison.
