There's currently a lot of buzz surrounding the OnePlus 6, and rightly so. The phone offers some of the best value for your money that you can find right now in the smartphone space, but as the saying goes, "something's got to give."

What do you think? How does the OnePlus 6's camera stand up against the Pixel 2?
