Community Manager

2017 has seen the launch of a variety of smartphones, with variant prices, innovative features and high quality user experience. OnePlus also joined the bandwagon to launch its next generation- OnePlus 5. The outstanding point about this model is the leading specifications delivered at an attractive price, owning to its nickname “flagship killer”.

If you are planning to buy a new phone which is worth all the bucks, OnePlus 5 is the go-to phone, and here is why.


High-tech Design and Superior Quality

Staying true to its classy design, from the front this phone stands similar to the OnePlus 3T. However, it sports more rounded corners and is slightly curved at the bottom and top, making the piece rounded overall. At a fleeting glance, it is difficult to tell the two apart. The design of the phone has aligned the antenna lines around the top and bottom of the rear making space for the exciting dual-camera and LED flash. The build quality is excellent owning to the aluminium body, which is slim at 7.25mm and weighs 153 grams. The OnePlus 5 drops well, with the rigid body making it tolerant to shocks.


Performance and Battery Life to Vouch For

The teaming up of OxygenOS and Qualcomm’s processor has resulted in a speedy processor and excellent app performance. The phone uses ample RAM to ensure smooth functioning with a variant of 6GB RAM with 64GB memory, and 8GB RAM with 128GB memory. The smooth processing of the phone makes it hassle free to switch between apps without stressing the phone. The output of the speakers is rich and loud, resulting in good call quality and clear conference calls and a great music output.

The light sensor can be a bit too aggressive in low light, finding the need to override it manually at times to make the display brighter. In bright surroundings, the full brightness is sometimes not enough and makes it difficult to see what is on the screen.

The 3300mAh battery capacity is 100mAh lower than OnePlus 3T. However, it has still managed to perform exceedingly well. With regular use, the battery life of the phone can last an entire day. The Dash Charging feature of the 20W charger works rapidly, making it convenient for users. You’ll also get warning notifications if any running app is draining the battery life faster than normal. Overall, it is a satisfactory experience.


Dual Camera- The Best Feature of OnePlus 5




The OnePlus 5 has a 16 megapixel sensor (Sony IMX 398) with an aperture of f/1.7 giving the portrait feature a fantastic output. The camera also consists of electronic stabilisation (EIS) and a focal length of 24mm. The second sensor has a 32mm focal length, 20-megapixel sensor and an aperture of f/2.8. However it lacks EIS. The catch is to switch between two sensors by hitting on the 2x button on the screen. An ideal deal could have a larger aperture like f/2.0 for the second sensor making it appealing to take pictures in low-light conditions. OnePlus 5 has gone the extra mile with a 16-megapixel front camera. It features f/2.0 aperture which enhances the image quality in good lighting. Added features are the Beauty Mode and Auto HDR.


The OnePlus 5 overall is an exciting phone for OnePlus enthusiasts and fans alike. Available in three colours “Midnight Black”, “Soft Gold” and a slightly lighter shade called “Slate Grey”. OnePlus 5 seems to refine the winning strategy and excel with every new generation.
