The OnePlus 5 will be available exclusively from O2 in the UK


Though it has the same 5.5-inch display, the OnePlus 5’s smaller footprint and its subtle curves make it a pleasure to hold in your hand and use. Would you do us a favor? But there’s nothing about it that screams “look at me” in quite the same way as its predecessors. Despite our issues with the OnePlus 5’s design, it is clear that OnePlus put a lot of effort into creating a device that feels well worth its asking price.

Without further ado, let’s begin.

There are also special events planned in London, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Helsinki, and Copenhagen on June 21 where one can buy the OnePlus 5. Pei shared that OnePlus 5 is the company’s “fastest selling device ever”.

However, as OnePlus highlights, it does feature a unique continuous hard edge or “horizon line” that separates two shades on the front and back, and its own alert slider for controlling alerts.

The OnePlus 5 is now available for purchase.

For the professional photographer, the OnePlus 5 gives you access to all the settings you would find on a pro DSLR, including ISO, white balance, and exposure (as well as saving in the RAW file format). The first available in Slate Grey offers 6GB or RAM paired with 64GB of storage; the second offers 8GB of RAM with 128GB of on-board storage capacity and comes in the Midnight Black colour. Either way, the OnePlus 5 comes packed with some cool premium features, but it is the missing features that reveal a great truth about premium smartphones. Which is exactly what the latest OnePlus has now got, consider the bandwagon jumped upon.

Here is the Images taken by various tech reporters of the new OnePlus 5 smartphone. The company still needs to prove that it can indeed support the devices it releases.

For example, the ZTE Axon 7 which is also part of the “affordable flagship” category includes two independent Hi-Fi audio chips for listening and recording, as well as a dual front-facing speaker with Dolby ATMOS surround sound technology. Over the course of the next couple of days we are bound to keep learning more about the new flagship. The OnePlus even has an identical “portrait mode” to take advantage of the rear dual-lens camera, like the iPhone 7 Plus.

As noted by iPhoneAddict, OnePlus had some choice words for Apple’s decision to remove the headphone jack on the iPhone 7.

All this, and more, will entice customers to pick up the latest “flagship killer” from OnePlus.

On stage during the unveiling, OnePlus said they don’t care about launching a phone that is purely about the specs, then laughingly went on to talk about all of its great specs. At that time, the company chose to take advantage of the latest Snapdragon 821 chipset, and its abilities.


Which really is what is slightly unsettling (pun intended) about the OnePlus 5. Well to start with, eight kryo 280 CPU cores are running at 2.35Ghz, plus an Adreno 540 GPU. Because of that, virtually all comparisons of the Snapdragon 835 versus the A10 show the A10 being superior in performance tests and less of a battery drain. 4K video capture is also on offer. I get it, if you want sweet hardware and sweet specs, you need to pay, but the OnePlus 5 seems to miss a few things that would justify such pricing.
