The business enterprise formally unveiled its 2017 version, the OnePlus five on Tuesday, and it has already been released in India.

The OnePlus 5 has already garnered large response returned on its domestic turf, and become additionally teased inside the final match of a lately concluded cricket match final Sunday.

So, is the OnePlus five everything it’s made out to be? And can it additionally earn the name of ‘flagship killer’? We goal to reply those burning questions in our OnePlus five overview.

Now earlier than we get began, we need to deal with the elephant in the room – design. From the front, this telephone seems very just like the OnePlus 3T (Review), but with more rounded corners and mild curves on the pinnacle and backside. Given a fleeting look, it would be hard to tell the two aside. The edges of the lower back were shaved too, making the tool more rounded usual. Antenna traces now wrap around the pinnacle and bottom of the rear to make an area for the dual-camera module and LED flash. We must admit, our first idea when we noticed this was that it seems very similar to an iPhone 7 Plus (Review), that’s a commonplace reaction because the style is absolutely familiar.

This induced an uproar in our workplace, just like it did at the Internet while pics of the rear first leaked. Copying Apple’s designs is nothing new for lots Chinese cellphone makers, but we bet most OnePlus fans predicted something original. Once the preliminary surprise wears off, it’s now not that massive a deal. Build nice remains outstanding thanks to the aluminum unibody, that is now slimmer at 7.25mm and lighter at 153 grams.

OnePlus has shaved off pretty a few the facet borders, and the glass curves along its edges, which makes the smartphone sense exquisite whilst you preserve it. It is a bit slippery without a cover as the perimeters are plenty thinner than on the OnePlus 3T, so that’s something to hold in mind. Luckily, the OnePlus five handles drop pretty well, and the couple of time we did by chance drop it from waist top, we have been left with only minor bumps and scuffs along the rims.

The 5.Five-inch AMOLED panel genuinely brings out deep blacks and rich shade saturation in content material. Perhaps the quality element here is that OnePlus has constant the OnePlus 3T’s stressful contact latency problem. The show supports the DCI-P3 color profile, which is also utilized by the iPhone 7. This gives a wider gamut as compared to sRGB. The color tone surely feels extra herbal and is much simpler on the eyes. Sadly, OnePlus is sticking to complete-HD because the display screen resolution, which is one of the few compromises it had to make to hold the price down – all different flagships at the moment are pushing QHD or even 4K.

The display screen has a tendency to scrub out pretty without problems underneath direct daylight. It’s worse if you use the ‘Dark’ subject matter, however, regardless of the default appearance settings, matters aren’t precisely extraordinary. The OnePlus five ships with a pre-implemented screen protector, which we suppose are not sensible due to the usage of Gorilla Glass five. The protector does not cowl the whole glass floor, so its edges rub towards your palms while you swipe from the perimeters of the cell phone, and lint accumulates at the edges.

In phrases of bodily connectors, we have a USB Type-C (USB 2.0 pace) port at the lowest in conjunction with a 3.5mm headphones socket and a speaker grille. Button placement remains the same as on preceding fashions, with the power button on the left and the extent rocker plus an Alert Slider at the proper. The Dual-SIM tray accepts Nano-SIMs, and 4G is supported with VoLTE.
