OnePlus 5 Review

The OnePlus 5 is the next phone in the family formerly known as “flagship killers.” Like its immediate predecessor the OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5 is better described as a “killer flagship,” with top-of-the-line specs packed into a very affordable package. That’s OnePlus’s game, after all, and the company plays it well. But does its focus on camera quality justify the slightly higher price tag – and will you be able to tell it apart from your friends’ iPhones? Take in the OnePlus 5 review above to find out, and then hop on over to Android Central’s full OnePlus 5 review to learn what it really means to “never settle.”

    I'm extremely interested in trying out OnePlus, but unfortunately, I'm stuck on Verizon as it's the only carrier with coverage where I live and OnePlus's insistence on ignoring Verizon customers makes it a non-starter.

    So it is a camera with some phone features…

    I hate the fact that phones today are judged by their camera strength. ITS A MOBILE COMMUNICATION DEVICE! If you want a camera, buy a camera. I don't think the camera is even as necessary as the rest of the phone.

    No expandable storage is a no-go for me, even with the 128gb's. G6 for me.

    Thanks for a great review! I bought the OnePlus 5 and I love it. I have already received a few updates since I got the phone. decent battery life, incredible speed and extremely smooth performance. excellent photos in daylight. My OnePlus 5 took better pictures than a Pixel and IPhone 6S+. Great customized features like button long/short press options . Fastest home sensor , works great with Nova launcher.

    lousy videos, grainy pictures in low light. I hope future updates can improve the performance.

    Why do zero reviewers mention the jelly scrolling? I'm just about to return my OP5 because the horrible elastic/jelly scrolling effect caused by the panel being upside down (and thus refreshing backwards and interacting bizarrely with scrolling) is intolerable.

    At $500, it's getting into "LG's having a big discount" territory. And at that price, the G6 is the better buy.

    It`s sad to see that no famous reviewer has mentioned the jelly scroll. That makes me think that all of them are being paid to keep their mouths shut.

    I would really consider getting this if this didn't cost as much as any other flagship in Canada (650-720) 😅😑
