On the other hand OnePlus 3T being lighter in weight, is comfortable to carry. Though both of them have sturdy build, they are still prone to accidental slips as they have metallic backs. In terms of display, the phablet Samsung C9 pro features a bigger 6-inch FHD AMOLED display (with 367ppi pixel density) providing better user experience while playing games, watching videos and reading whereas OnePlus 3T sports a 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display (with 401ppi pixel density). Both of them flaunt fingerprint sensor on their respective home buttons on the front panel.
2. Performance and Storage :
In terms of configuration and performance, OnePlus 3T scores better as it is powered by the top-of-the-line and latest 2.35GHz quad core Snapdragon 821 processor in comparison to Galaxy C9 Pro which supports a 1.9GHz octa-core Snapdragon 653 chipset. Hence, 3T will deliver better performance while gaming or multitasking though both of them are equipped with 6GB RAM. OnePlus 3T is available in two variants- having 64GB and 128GB storage but lacks the expandable option and Galaxy C9 Pro comes with 64GB storage which can be expanded upto 256GB using microSD card.

3. Camera :
For photography, both the phones are well equipped with 16 Megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 16 Megapixel front facing camera for selfies and video calling. The selfie camera does not have flash, hence they do not deliver good results in low light conditions.
4. Battery and Connectivity :
C9 Pro is fuelled by a 4000mAH battery with fast charging support whereas 3T is powered from a 3400mAH battery with dash charging which charges the device upto 60% capacity in 30 minutes.
