OnePlus has been primarily hitting home runs in the Indian market with its products which blend both mid-range price tag with the high-end features. The company’s newly launched smartphone OnePlus 5 seems to cement these claims further. OnePlus 5 has been the company’s fifth generation flagship smartphone which comes as a successor to the OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 5 comes in two variants based on RAM storage – 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM, rated at Rs 32,999 and Rs 37,999 respectively. The 6GB RAM comes in Slate Grey colour, and the 8GB RAM variant comes in midnight black colour. Both the variant of OnePlus 5 comes with the same flagship processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. The design of the OnePlus 5 looks similar to the slightly curvier matte-black iPhone 7 Plus with the dual-rear camera arrangement, blended antenna lines and the flash. The front design is similar to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. OnePlus has managed to make this smartphone so comfortable to hold and a pleasure to use. The curved back will fit perfectly in your hand, and the 3D Gorilla Glass on the front also curves slightly which makes it super-slim. The smartphone hopped around the dual-camera trend and had the two rear shooters. Unlike other phones, it has two cameras for wide angle or monochrome purposes. It has a 16-megapixel shooter and the secondary 30-megapixel telephoto lens. It will enable you to take “bokeh” pictures which have the shallow depth of field and the blurred backgrounds.It also comes with 16MP front facing camera

The slight disadvantage of OnePlus 5 has been the lacking of waterproof resistant. A few years ago it was a nonuse, but now it is one of the key features if you want to be competitive against other flagships. The smartphone carries the fingerprint sensor below the screen which works much faster than 3T. While comes to battery, it looks like a downgrade than 3T. OnePlus 5 sports 3,300mAh battery while 3T sports 3,4000mAh. But Dash Charging technology will help you to charge your smartphone very fastly, and it is the fast charging smartphone technology out there. OnePlus 5 runs the latest version of OxygenOS at the time of release, which is based on Android Nougat 7.1.1 – the newest version of Google’s operating system. The company also said they would bring out the Android O update to the smartphone before the end of 2017. Gaming on this smartphone is a polished and enjoyable experience, thanks to the impressive power of the Adreno 540 graphics processor.
