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

  1. Price: The OrangePi 3 LTS is generally cheaper than the Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM. This may be an important factor for some users in choosing between the two.
  2. Availability: Raspberry Pi kits are not available or are in poor supply. As a result, the price has sometimes tripled. There is no indication that the price will drop in the near future.
  3. Faster processor: The OrangePi 3 LTS has 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 OrangePi 3 LTS performs better when performing tasks such as streaming media.
  4. EMMC flash memory: the OrangePi 3 LTS features 8Gb of internal flash memory. This makes it possible to boot an operating system without an SD card. The eMMC memory is almost 3 times faster than an SD Card. Android 9 is preinstalled.
  5. Full size HDMI connection: Unlike a Raspberry Pi 4, the Orange Pi 3 LTS can be connected to a monitor via a normal HDMI cable.

Although the Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM is still a great single-board computer, the OrangePi 3 LTS offers some advantages over the Raspberry Pi 4. This may be decisive for some users in making a choice between the two.
