One of the most anticipated phones of the year – the new flagship killer OnePlus 5 is launched now. For past few months there had been new leaks and rumors every other day and lots of hype around the OnePlus 5, and why not? OnePlus phones have given the best of the best smartphones from top brands like Apple, Samsung, Google and LG a solid run for their money. All the flagship OnePlus phones have been extremely popular and super value for money, and the same popularity can be already seen for the OnePlus 5 however, we will need to take a close look at the phone and its offering as this time the company has increased its price.
The OnePlus 5 comes with a slim premium metallic body which looks very beautiful and feels comfortable to hold. Although it is not a very new design and we have seen a similar design on some phones like the iPhone 7 Plus, it should not really be a concern. It sports a 5.5 inches Full HD Optic AMOLED display, and this time also OnePlus hasn’t upgraded it to 4K display like many expected. However, the display quality is vibrant and excellent, and you won’t really miss 4K.
The OnePlus 5 runs on one of the most powerful mobile processors in the world, flagship from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.45 GHz and paired with Adreno 540 GPU. The phone comes in two variants, one with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage and other with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, the whooping 8 GB RAM is the highest you can get in a smartphone at present. Needless to say, the performance is mind blowing, it can handle everything you can throw at it, be it lots and lots of apps or heaviest of the games, it handles everything like a boss.
Coming to another great aspect of the phone, which is indeed the most highlighted feature, the dual rear camera setup. The OnePlus 5 comes with a 16 MP (Sony IMX 398, f/1.7) primary rear camera and a 20 MP (Sony IMX 350, f/2.6) telephoto camera. The picture quality is amazing and one of the best in the world. The dual cameras produce nice bokeh effect and for more background blurring, there is a portrait mode which works to a good extent however, some times images look abrupt and artificial. It also supports 2x optical zoom and a full pro mode. It can record 4K videos at 30fps and comes with EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation). The 16 MP front camera with Sony IMX 371 sensor and f/2.0 aperture is a great selfie shooter.
The phone runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat with OnePlus’s Oxygen OS running on top, it is very close to stock Android and includes some nice features. OnePlus 5 packs a very fast fingerprint scanner in the home button. A nice feature is, the home button can be tapped twice to perform your desired action like opening camera or locking the screen, etc.
It comes with USB Type-C for charging and data transfer, and also comes with the latest Bluetooth v5.0 and NFC. It supports two 4G sim cards and VoLTE. The OnePlus 5 packs in a non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery which supports OnePlus’s Dash Charge technology and charges the phone pretty quickly. The battery backup is good and the phone lasts for around a day with heavy usage. It has good audio quality and if you love reading a lot, it also comes with a Reading Mode and makes your phone like an e-book reader.
