OnePlus 5 review summary

The OnePlus 5 is the company's new flagship, which succeeds the OnePlus 3T. The all-metal phone is slimmer and lighter than its predecessor which makes it more comfortable to carry around. The 5.5-inch Amoled display still has a full-HD resolution, which is a letdown, but colours and viewing angles are good. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC and comes in two RAM and storage configurations. The new version of OxygenOS is super fast and debuts features like Reading Mode and Expanded Screenshots. Camera performance is good although the second camera has limited use and the implementation isn't well thought through. Battery life is good and Dash Charging helps charge the phone very rapidly.

Here comes the new King!!
By Isa Farraj | 2 Aug 2017 | 2 Aug 2017
This phone is absolutely AMAZING! DO NOT TRUST THE NEGATIV REVIEWS. I have been using this phone for a month now, and i just can't believe its speed, smoothness and battery performance. The camera is even better than i expected, dash charging is awesome. Conclusion: this beast is beautiful, it's superior and it definitely worth every penny.

I recently upgrade from the OnePlus 2 to the 5
By Abigail Moore | 2 Dec 2017 | 2 Dec 2017
After spending two years frustrated with my Samsung phone, I decided to ditch all the main brands and go with something a little off the radar. Found an article talking about non-flagship phones and the OnePlus brand was listed. Took a chance on the OnePlus 2 and was 110% pleased with the results. When it came time to wanting an upgrade, I didn't even bother looking at other phones. I went straight to the OnePlus website and bought a OnePlus 5. Personally I love it. I almost never take pictures but when I do it is far superior to the phones I have had in the past - and that is really all I need. If I wanted to take amazing "better than life" pictures, I would buy a camera dedicated to that. But I'm not a photographer, so I'm not picky. The RAM and memory available at the price I bought it for, unlocked, is hands down the best on the market imo.

Best value phone
By Michał Jawor | 13 Nov 2017 | 13 Nov 2017
I do not understand why he got only 7 points for design ? It is very well designed, as evidenced by a very thin case, a fingerprint reader on the front and dont overheat. Camera is good for my daily usage.
