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

 

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...

DNP OnePlus 5 review: A glorious value

 

Building a great phone is hard enough, so building a great phone on a budget should be infinitely more difficult. With its fifth flagship, OnePlus makes it look easy. The OnePlus blazingly fast, with a surprisingly good dual camera and solid battery...

Excellent performance ; Good battery life ; Dual camera works very well ; The price!

Design is starting to feel generic ; Still no expandable memory ; Dash charging is a closed standard

Is it perfect? No. But building a phone like this is always an exercise in compromise, and the balance that OnePlus struck among form, functionality and price is incredible. Whether this means OnePlus becomes a household name remains to be seen. For...

OnePlus 5: Everything you need to know about the mid-range flagship

 

OnePlus has unveiled its new handset, the OnePlus 5, and it packs a Snapdragon 835 chip, a dual camera, and a slightly higher price tag.

There were a few that OnePlus 5 users who dialed 911 in the U.S. or 999 in the UK, and had their phones reboot rather than place a call to emergency services. It doesn’t seem to have been a widespread problem, and OnePlus acted quickly to pinpoint the...
