OnePlus 5 Features

OnePlus 5 is a smartphone manufactured by Chinese brand OnePlus and it was launched in June 2017. The phone was touted as a performance beast and it also came with dual-rear cameras. 

Design & Display:

OnePlus broke the design pattern of its previous phones with the launch of OnePlus 5. It received a lot of flak for resembling with the iPhone 7 Plus as there were many similarities. The phone was launched in two different colours initially: Midnight Black and Slate Gray. Later another colour was added to the lineup: Soft Gold. 

The OnePlus 5 has a 5.5-inch Full HD display which produces a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Although the phone could have had a better display at this price point, the display isn't too disappointing. Since the display is AMOLED, the colour output is quite sharp as well. The phone also gets Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for the display protection.  


There was a major upgrade in the cameras of OnePlus 5 when compared to its predecessor OnePlus 3T. The phone packs a dual-camera setup with a 20-megapixel sensor and another 16-megapixel sensor. Both of them combine together to provide a Depth effect and lossless zoom up to 1.6x. The camera also supports 4k video recording. For clicking selfies and video-calling, there is a 16-megapixel sensor at the front. 

Performance & Storage:

For a superior performance, the phone has got an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which was the flagship processor during the launch. It packs in a massive 6GB of RAM for seamless multi-tasking. The phone runs on Oxygen OS which is built on top of Android 7.1 Nougat. 

It comes with 64GB internal storage and since there is no microSD card slot provided in the phone, the storage cannot be expanded via external means. 

Battery & Connectivity:

The OnePlus 5 comes with a 3300mAh battery which can last around a day. However, it has Dash Charge 2.0 which can charge the phone up to 60% in just half an hour.

For connectivity, the phone has a 3.5mm audio jack and an USB Type-C port. Other connectivity options include: 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, VoLTE.

I've recently bought this and can't stop obsessing over the beast the phone is. This phone rightly comes with a flagship killer tag. It has such an amazing design and a camera as good as an iPhone 7 plus. It feels so premium in hands, and at this price, this is gonna rock the market with it's sales. Surely value for money.

  • Superior metal body build
  • Amazing camera.
