Samsung and OnePlus are two Asian manufacturers who want to prove that the American and European markets are not necessarily better. And we have to admit that it’s mission accomplished, although some people don’t like it. Samsung remains the second most successful smartphone vendor in the world, being dethroned from the first position recently by the Chinese brand Huawei.
T-Mobile continues to bring software updates for smartphones, and it’s now the turn of the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G and OnePlus 8 5G models. The Samsung phone is being updated to version N976USQS3CTI8. This update arrived several days ago, and it includes the October 1, 2020 security patches.
The OnePlus 8 5G also gets an update. Reddit users say that version 10.5.22.IN55CB is the one received by the new update that is now rolling out.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G or OnePlus 8 5G?
It’s difficult to decide which one of the two phones is better. While the Samsung model has 12 GB of RAM, the OnePlus 8 5G has only 8GB. The latter features a 48MP triple camera setup on the rear, while Samsung’s gadget only has a 12MP main camera. The Galaxy Note 10+ 5G features an Exynos 9825 processor, while its ‘rival’ is packing a Snapdragon 865 chipset.
Even the prices of the two smartphones are pretty similar to each other, and they’re both pretty demanding. You can buy the OnePlus 8 5G for about 650 euros, while Samsung’s device is worth about 700 euros. However, we can expect a lot more smartphones to enter the 5G realm in the upcoming months.
