OnePlus 5 review

 

UPDATED: Soft Gold edition is official - The i-Phone-y that kills flagships...

Subtle styling improvements make for a better overall package ; As powerful as 2017 phones get, with great battery life to boot ; Dual cameras take brilliant daylight pics

Not as big a bargain as last year ; Screen sticks to 1080p ; Not the best at night-time photography

We’re not in true bargain territory any more, but the OnePlus 5 still beats the competition on price and now feels every bit the flagship phone

OnePlus 5 review: This Android flagship is near perfect

 

OnePlus 5 review: OnePlus 5 is arguably the best Android phone you can buy. There are better phones out there, but then this is way more affordable than a Google Pixel XL or a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, thus making it a far better proposition for the buyer.

OnePlus 5 Review

 

The OnePlus 5 is an excellent Android smartphone that sticks to what it stands for to its loyal user base. Top notch performance, pure Android experience and strong on basics. Having said that, for a flagship in 2017, the OnePlus 5 no longer comes...

Blazing fast performance ; Bug free and lag free near stock Android build ; Good battery-life with ultra fast Dash Charging ; Good build quality ; Main camera offers excellent focus and capture speed

Average performing secondary telephoto camera ; Design feels a little dated for 2017 ; No real killer feature to justify the price bump

The OnePlus 5 is exactly what a OnePlus fan expects; fast, well made, almost runs on stock android and is well priced. It is also an attractive option for anyone looking to buy a premium Android smartphone that doesn't compromise on the basics....

OnePlus 5 review

 

Dual-lens camera and top dog for performance

Premium design and feel ; Fantastic camera ; Phenomenal performance

Pricier than previous iterations ; Only Full HD display ; No microSD support

The OnePlus 5 may not be as cheap as the company's previous handsets, but it's one of the best phones on the market right now. A great camera, phenomenal performance and a premium design combine to make this a fantastic buy for anyone looking for a...

OnePlus 5 Smartphone Review

 

Computation artist. The OnePlus 5 is a fast smartphone that is available for a good price - although it is not as cheap as it used to be and competition has increased. Can the smartphone with dual camera, AMOLED screen and a slim case still hold its...

fancy, slim and very stable case ; dual SIM capable ; supports many LTE frequencies ; good voice quality ; nicely enhanced Android ; no bloatware ; very fast charging time ; exact GPS ; OLED screen with accurate colors ; fast Wi-Fi ; good performance ;...

main camera quality not on high-end level ; heats up under prolonged loads ; throttling during heavy load ; jelly effect when scrolling ; interchanged microphone channels for videos ; USB 2.0 only ; no microSD slot ; case is not water or dust resistant

There are lots of interesting questions to answer after our review of the OnePlus 5. So let us begin: The OnePlus 5 is a comparatively cheap smartphone with flagship qualities that did slip up a little regarding image quality of the camera but is very...

OnePlus 5

 

OnePlus 5 review: Do dual-cameras and loads of RAM make this the best OnePlus yet? Or does the higher price mean it's no longer the best deal in tech?

Fantastic software ; Not as cheap as previous models, but still great value ; Dash Charge is great ; Dual cameras work well

Missing some higher-end features ; Poor Wi-Fi and audio performance

2017 flagships have been pushing the boundaries in lots of areas, but battery life isn’t really one of them. Ever since the Note 7 started combusting, it seems that advances in battery tech and capacity have taken a back seat. It’s a similar story for...
