OnePlus 5: worth buying?

OnePlus 5: worth buying?

Could this be your new phone?

Still checking the phone market to see which would be the best for you? If you're not onboard with the latest Apple phones, then the OnePlus 5 might just be the one! We’ve got some reviews and info that might help you out!

Pros?

The OnePlus 5 is one speedy and minimalist phone. Jumping in and out of apps are lightning quick and efficient. It’s considered as the fastest phone this reviewer used. The company did not hold back as the phone is powered with the latest Snapdragon 835. Plus with the Ardeno 540 GPU for a great gaming experience.

Old-fashioned but not your typical 1080p 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with 16:9 resolution. It has vibrant colors and can get very bright that you can check your phone even under the sunlight.

It’s a first for the company to manufacture a phone that’s rocking the dual-lens camera. The main camera is 16MP with super-wide aperture of f/1.7. The other is the 20MP telephoto lens with aperture of f/2.6. These cameras are especially useful for Portrait Mode and shooting faraway subjects.

For gamers, the Gaming Do Not Disturb mode would be a great plus where you can turn off all notifications while playing. For everyone who’s missing the 3.5mm headphone jack on recent iPhones… this one has it!

While its Oxygen OS has lots of customizable perks like the notification shade easily customizable.

Cons?

No folks this phone is still not waterproof like other phones today. So best to keep it away from bodies of water.

The OnePlus 5 also has no expandable memory. So you might have to make a second check on which you’d choose: the 64GB or 128GB storage?

Hardware (and partly software) might kind of be reminiscent of other phones like Apple and Oppo, if this can be a deal breaker for you.

The price may be neutral ground starting at $479, which is still quite cheaper than Apple’s iPhones or Samsung’s Galaxy 8/8Plus or Note 8. Not a bad phone...for that price too! Looking to purchase one? Before it runs out in the wild, it”s best to keep the screen safe from drops and scratches!
