OnePlus 5: Design & Built:
The phone at first appears similar to its predecessor OnePlus 3T but on a closer look, you find it different with rounded edges in the top and bottom. With shaved rear and curvy edges, the phone appears more rounded than any other model of OnePlus. This time the phone has wrapped antennas which ultimately makes a place for the camera & flash setup. The overall style can be however claimed to be similar with iPhone 7.
The phone has a sturdy built because of unibody made of aluminum. The phone appears slimmer measuring 7.25 mm and is also light weighted; it weighs around 153 grams.
With shaved back and sides the phone has become very slippery; hence you must get a cover to keep it in place. Even if you don’t, the makers have done a great job in making it handle the falls with perfection.
The screen is 5.5 inch AMOLED and supports full HD. This phone is available in black color and is equipped with the DCI-P3 color profile. Because of full HD support, the screen may wash out when used on a bright day.
The screen also comes with a pre-installed screen protector but it is not of great use as the phone has Gorilla Glass 5.
OnePlus 5 comes with a USB Type-C charging port and a headphone jack at the bottom. The power button is placed on the left while the volume and alert slider sit on the right. It has two nano sim slots and supports 4G with VoLTE.
OnePlus 5: Battery and power
OnePlus 5 is equipped with a nonremovable 3300 mAh battery (fairly bigger than its predecessor). However, the battery life is not very impressive. However, for an average user, a fully charged phone would offer a day’s battery life with ease.
The best part about the phone is that it charges at a super fast speed; thanks to the Dash Charge.
OnePlus 5: Camera:
If you are a photography enthusiast, this phone is worth everything for you. OnePlus 5 has lived up to the trend of dual camera setup and even has two rear shooters as well. Unlike others, the phone has a standard 16-megapixel shooter and a secondary 20-megapixel telephoto lens thus offers you a gadget that offers highly clear and high picture quality photos.
You can also take excellent low light pictures with this camera. For selfie lovers, the phone comes with an equivalent 16-megapixel camera at the front as well.
In all, we can conclude this phone to be the latest marvel of technological intelligence and ultimate user-friendliness.
