The OnePlus 5 may be the Chinese manufacturer's toughest smartphone so far, including an iPhone-inspired double camera and also a high price tag. Unlike past OnePlus smart phones which were consistently priced below $500, the newcomer costs $539 in top spec -- a 60 bump within its predecessor, the OnePlus 3T.
The OnePlus 5 looks much as an iPhone 7 Plus -- at a quick glance, it's just about impossible to tell both phones apart. The apparatus also resembles the twin brother of Oppo R11 -- yet another mobile created by the parent company of OnePlus that is not available in the United States. With the above in mind, the OnePlus 5 looks good from the alloy, if a little generic and familiar. There are three colors to select from -- Midnight Black, Slate Gray, and a limited edition Soft Gold.
The build quality of this all-metal OnePlus 5 is impeccable, though the unit isn't waterproof. With this feature being standard on high-end phones from Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC, along with Sony, we believe it is pretty disappointing OnePlus chose to bypass it.
OnePlus 5 Specs
OnePlus tablets have always been all about specs, and the most recent one is no exception. The lengthy spec sheet of this OnePlus 5 has been headed by the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip set, in conjunction with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM (that is what a standard notebook has today). The former comes with 64 GB of non-expandable, ultra-fast storage, even while the latter offers 128 GB.
The 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display of the OnePlus 5 has stayed unchanged from the apparatus's predecessor, the OnePlus 3. It's bright and sharp, even though it can not match the resolution of its Android competitors. A 1080p display also usually means that the OnePlus 5 cannot utilize an Android DayDream VR headset, which demands a QHD display.
Other key specs of the OnePlus 5 include Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, quick Wi-Fi, and also two SIM card slots. In an increasingly rare sight in the current phones, a normal audio jack can be up to speed.
The OnePlus 5 runs a sleek custom Android interface called Oxygen OS. It looks a lot like stock Android, yet it includes a remarkably rich collection of customization features, enabling you to totally make the applications experience your own personal. It's conveniently one of the very best custom Android interfaces out there.
