Why choose an Orange Pi 3 LTS instead of a Raspberry Pi 4?

  1. Price: The Orange Pi 3 LTS is generally cheaper than the Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM. This can be an important factor for some users when making a choice between the two.
  2. Availability: Raspberry Pi kits are either unavailable or poorly stocked, sometimes leading to tripled prices. There are no indications that the price will decrease in the near future.
  3. Faster processor: The Orange Pi 3 LTS features a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor running at 1.8 GHz, while the Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM has a quad-core Cortex-A72 processor running at 1.5 GHz. Many tests have reported that the Orange Pi 3 LTS performs better when executing tasks such as media streaming.
  4. EMMC flash memory: The Orange Pi 3 LTS comes with 8GB of internal flash memory. This allows booting an operating system without an SD card. The eMMC memory is nearly three times faster than an SD card. Android 9 is pre-installed.
  5. Full-size HDMI port: Unlike the Raspberry Pi 4, the Orange Pi 3 LTS can be connected to a monitor via a standard HDMI cable.

While the Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM remains a fantastic single-board computer, the Orange Pi 3 LTS offers some advantages over the Raspberry Pi 4. This may be decisive for some users when choosing between the two.
