The much-awaited mobile from the Chinese tech manufacturer, OnePlus, has launched globally its latest flagship One Plus5.
The phone is being offered with 64GB and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage options, loaded with top-notch Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.4 GHz paired with 6GB/8GB RAM.
To handle the graphic needs, the phone is equipped with Adreno 540GPU and comes with a metal glass design, which has a display of 5.5-inch FHD Optic AMOLED on the front, protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
One Plus 5 is packed with dual cameras on the back. The main camera features 20MP (Sony IMX 350 sensor), and the other is 16MP (Sony IMX 398) with an aperture of F/2.6 and F/1.7; respectively.
The phone has a 16MP front camera, enabled with a ceramically coated fingerprint scanner in the home button, unlocking the device in 0.2 seconds.
One Plus 5 is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery, which comes with Dash Charge support, available in Midnight Black and Slate Gray color. It runs on OnePlus Oxygen OS, based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, as per the promise made by the company, One Plus 5 is expected to get an upgrade of Android O via OTA in future updates.
Other features include Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, 4G VoLTE, Dual SIM support with Dual-band Wi-Fi.
When it comes to looks One Plus 5 has a lot of resemblances, compared to the iPhone 7.
The display being 1080p is somewhat a little disappointing, however, the representation of colors is accurate, adequately compensating for the lower resolution.
The camera doesn’t match the standard of its predecessor as expected, though, with a fast, but erroneous focus, the wider aperture, and superior image processing could have performed better when it comes to image quality.
The latest flagship might have to struggle a bit to trim a niche for itself, as it’s the most expensive OnePlus cell phone till date. But, considering the past records of the company, few software glitches shouldn’t stop One Plus 5 to conquer a large segment of the market.
