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: the coolest Android phone you can buy

 

OnePlus no longer is a flagship killer - it's become a bonafide Android flagship

Design ; Speed ; Brand

Screen ; Low light photography ; Price keeps rising

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...

OnePlus 5 review: Still the best value smartphone, despite the higher price

 

The OnePlus 5 cements itself as the best “flagship killer” you can buy, but the asking price is steeper than ever

Lengthy battery life ; Blazingly fast performance ; Beautiful new design

More expensive than before

The OnePlus 5 remains the best value smartphone on the market, then, but it's not quite the outright bargain its predecessors were.

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...

OnePlus 5 review

 

OnePlus takes the performance (and price) of its budget superphone to the next level...

Excellent design and build quality ; Ultra-fast performance ; Rapid charging and great battery life ; Streamlined Android UI

Audio lacks fine detail and refinement ; 1080p display still lacks subtlety ; No expandable storage

A good value phone with the features and performance you’d expect from something more expensive

OnePlus 5 review

 

The OnePlus 5 is simply stellar.

The OnePlus 5 is affordable and super fast, with an 18-hour battery. Its camera takes great portraits and low-light shots.

It costs more than any previous model, its design isn't anything special and it doesn’t have expandable storage.

The OnePlus 5 is outstanding, especially for the price; no other phone gives you the same bang for the buck.
