How To Buy Oneplus 5

Yes, we know, the price hike is a bitter pill to swallow, but the OnePlus 5 is still far cheaper than any other major flagship with comparable specs. If history is any indication, the price is only going to continue to increase in years to come, so you may as well get on board while things are still reasonably affordable.

The OnePlus 5 is no longer available, after it was replaced by the OnePlus 5T. A great camera, phenomenal performance and a premium design combine to make this a fantastic buy for anyone looking for a more affordable flagship phone.

The OnePlus 5 was a great, affordable flagship smartphone, but it was short lived. Less than six months after its June 2017 launch, you could no longer buy the handset. The reason? The excellent OnePlus 5T showed up for the same price, while offering more.

[Update: You can no longer purchase the OnePlus 5. It's been replaced by the OnePlus 5T, which offers smaller bezels, a bigger screen, face unlock and improved rear cameras - all for the same price as the OnePlus 5.]

Looking at the OnePlus 5, it's hard to believe that the company that made it was less than four years old. This is a phone that manages to hold its own alongside flagship devices from companies that have enormous pots of money to spend on research, development and design, and a decade or more of experience making smartphones.

OnePlus has always made impressive phones at sub-flagship prices, but with this iteration the Chinese company has learned from previous mistakes, and built on its successes, to create an all-round fantastic phone.

This is now a dual-lens setup that allows you to capture some attractive-looking 'bokeh' shots with artfully blurred backgrounds, as well as boasting a 'lossless' zoom feature, which essentially means that zooming in on subjects will only result in a negligible reduction in image quality.

OnePlus is talking up the placement of the antenna bands here. According to a spokesperson the color has been specifically designed to try and hide the antenna bands for an unspoiled full-metal look, and when you do spot them they don't detract from the design of the phone.

Apple is the only other manufacturer that has persisted with the silent switch, but its inclusion on the OnePlus 5 is welcome. It makes it super easy to make the handset cinema, meeting and bedtime ready, and we like that.

The OnePlus 5 is only available in two colors, and these are tied to the storage/RAM options. The 64GB/6GB version comes in Slate Gray, while the more expensive 128GB/8GB model comes in Midnight Black.

The OnePlus 5 has three camera lenses, with two on the back and one on the front. The Sony IMX 371 selfie camera has 16 megapixels, an f/2.0 aperture, electronic image stabilization, and fixed focus; but all attention is on the rear cam. A Sony IMX 398 16-megapixel, f/1.7 wide-angle lens is joined by a Sony IMX 350 telephoto lens with 20 megapixels and an f/2.6 aperture. OnePlus also promises super fast autofocus.

In the top left is a three-line menu icon. Tap it to see alternative modes, such as video, Portrait, slow motion video, and time-lapse mode. If you want to dig deeper, look for the cog icon in the top right of the screen and tap it. From here you can customize the way OnePlus 5 camera works a little more.

This is likely the reason you want a dual-lens camera phone. Adding a bokeh effect is a major trend, and both Huawei and Apple have excellent systems for doing so. Can OnePlus compete? The answer is yes, and we like the bokeh Portrait mode on the OnePlus 5; but it does need a little patience to get the best end result.

In the camera app on the viewfinder screen, hold down for several seconds on the screen to lock the exposure and focus in one place. Also, tap on your subject to adjust the exposure using a slider that pops up.

Look to the top right of the main camera screen to find the option to permanently add the HDR mode. You can also switch to auto, or off, under this menu. Other options along this line are for the aspect ratio of your photo, the flash, and the timer.

In standard auto mode, tap the three line menu in the top left and select Pro mode. The histogram, if you activated it earlier under Settings, will appear and the horizon line will be in the center of the viewfinder. All the adjustable options are lined up along the bottom of the screen. Tap each one, and a rotating semi-circle control pops up, which you use to shift the value.

Everyone likes taking a selfie every now and then, so how does the OnePlus 5 handle them? The 16-megapixel front camera packs in plenty of detail, and even has its own HDR mode, which works really well. Switch to the front camera using the button to the left of the shutter release in portrait orientation.

The OnePlus 10T is official with extra-fast charging capabilities, a non-alert slider design, and Hasselblad branding-less cameras. The device still offers excellent performance with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. While the internals sound over the top, it's pretty typical for OnePlus's usual 'never settle' fashion.

But flashy specs aren't the only thing that the OnePlus 10T brings to the table. It also comes in a couple of color variants so folks can show their personality with their smartphone.All colors available for the OnePlus 10TThe OnePlus 10T follows the same unified design language as the OnePlus 10 Pro. This means the camera module unifies with the edge of the smartphone -- much like the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It comes with a unibody rear glass cover made with "industry-leading technology," at least according to OnePlus.

Following up on the OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus has finally announced the OnePlus 10T. It's a follow-up to the OnePlus 10 Pro and a cheaper model of what turned out to be a well-received phone. For folks who didn't like the Oppo-ification of OnePlus, there is no reprieve here from that yet. OnePlus takes further steps, including ditching the alert sider and keeping the divisive OxygenOS 12 software. But if those things don't bother you, the 10T is an interesting choice in a market not devoid of handsets to choose from.

The new OnePlus 5 is power-user catnip. OnePlus packed all the best components into this phone: Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor, 6 or 8 gigs of LPDDR4X RAM, a 3,300 mAh battery with super-fast charging, 64 or 128 gigs of storage, dual-sim support, Bluetooth 5.0, a two-camera array on the rear that lets you take cool portraits, and an absurdly high-res 16-megapixel selfie cam. A dark-gray model with 6 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of storage costs $479; 8 gigs of RAM, 128 gigs of storage, and a gorgeous black case runs $539. By comparison, a 128GB iPhone 7 Plus or Google Pixel XL costs a hefty $869, and you'll drop $825 on a Galaxy S8 Plus with only 64GB of storage.

OnePlus didn't do anything outrageous or eye-catching, like shave the bezel to a sliver or build in a modular ecosystem. It simply made all the stuff in its fourth flagship phone (it skipped the OnePlus 4, because the Chinese consider the number four unlucky) better. And in doing so, it made a pretty good phone.

OnePlus got just about everything right with the look of the 5. It's slimmer and more sharply beveled than previous handsets, with the black logo on the black back and a slight edge on the otherwise rounded side. It looks a lot like an iPhone 7 Plus, which I say as a compliment. Earlier models looked like they were created by ransacking a parts bin and throwing it all together with someone's discarded tooling.

The phone runs on OnePlus's Oxygen OS, which is really just Android with a couple of tiny customizations. Useful ones, too, like a reading mode that automatically filters out blue light and adjusts the screen properties to make the AMOLED display look and feel more like a Kindle screen. You also get a system-wide night mode, a one-touch setting for turning off all notifications while you play games, and a handful of hidden gestures and features.

As you might expect from the specs, the OnePlus 5 screams like a French metal band. I played games, watched movies, shot high-res video, opened every app on the phone simultaneously, and then made a video call. Nothing slowed it down. The fingerprint reader below the screen works so insanely fast I almost wonder if it actually reads my print. (OnePlus assured me it does.) My review unit, with 8 gigs of RAM, offers way more power than most people need. And even with all that juice, the battery still lasts a full day. With OnePlus's much-touted quick charge tech, a quick top-off while getting dressed will last through the evening.

That smoothness and longevity comes at the expense of the 5.5-inch screen, which offers 1080p resolution. On a phone so otherwise spec-heavy, that feels like a weird oversight. But unless you plan to strap a OnePlus 5 to your face, it won't matter. Samsung runs the S8's screen at 1080p by default, and nobody complains about the iPhone 7 Plus's 5.5-inch screen being low-res. Frankly, the screen looks great, even if 1080p won't excite many power users. 041b061a72
