OnePlus has earned itself a reputation of coming up with high-end smartphones at a comparatively affordable price in context with its features. In comparison to other smartphone manufacturers, OnePlus is the most affordable solution to your high-end smartphone needs. The fifth edition of this smartphone range, OnePlus 5, is a progressive step from its predecessors OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
Design and Build
OnePlus 5 is really a powerful piece of tech by the Chinese smartphone maker at a bargain. The smartphone has powerful specs along with a sophisticated design.
The appearance of the black version of the flagship phone is somewhat similar to the matte black iPhone 7 plus console; slight curved and uptown with dual cameras at the back.
The front part of the phone, however, is similar to the nicely outgoing OnePlus 3 and 3T. The phone has a 5.5-inch display which is protected with Gorilla Glass 5. Svelte, gorgeous, and comfortable to use, that’s how we can sum up the design.
The flagship OnePlus phone has a dual-camera that works in tandem to give you better pictures. There is a 16-megapixel rig that captures wide-angle shots and a 20-megapixel sensor that captures zoomed photos without any compromise. The post processing completes what is lacking and gives the final touchup, providing you an array of control options and much more.

The OnePlus 5 has the same (or better) specifications as most of the current top-of-the-line smartphones available. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor found in the US Galaxy S8, the HTC U11 and others.
It has either 6 or 8GB of RAM, which is frankly overkill, and has either 64 or 128GB of storage, which should be plenty of space for almost everyone.
It comes in two variants. A slate grey version with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage costing £449 and a midnight black version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costing £499.
