OnePlus’ most expensive smartphone to date doesn’t offer anything more significant that what its predecessor offered. But it is still a sleek, svelte device with a thickness of about 7.3 millimetres. The weight is not bad at 153 grams.

The screen is sizeable at 5.5-inch and it uses optic AMOLED technology. This offers Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. A pixel density of about 400 pixels per inch means you can expect immersive wide angle viewing from the OnePlus 5. The capacitive touchscreen has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top.


The OnePlus 5 is a camera-heavy smartphone. You have a pair of robust shooters on the rear – 16 MP plus 20 MP. That’s a powerful combo you have there. These are backed up by features such as dual LED flash, phase detection autofocus, HDR and optical zoom. The rear cameras can shoot up to 4K quality video.
