Both phones perform very well in day to day use and one cannot simply find the difference in normal use. Both phones have to inherit flagship features from their flagship successor. Both phones have cut down edges to reduce the cost and deliver high-end specs at an affordable cost. Some features are better with the OnePlus 8T and some are better with Samsung Galaxy S20 FE. There is no clear winner among the two as they both offer neck to neck competition.

We wait to hear more about both phone prices in Nepal. While we can still convert the official USD rates from the global store, it is not so wise to do the maths of the forex. Team TechSansar shall update you once we have more about the availability and pricing of both phones in Nepal.
