OnePlus 5


OnePlus 5 review: Do dual-cameras and loads of RAM make this the best OnePlus yet? Or does the higher price mean it's no longer the best deal in tech?

Fantastic software ; Not as cheap as previous models, but still great value ; Dash Charge is great ; Dual cameras work well

Missing some higher-end features ; Poor Wi-Fi and audio performance

2017 flagships have been pushing the boundaries in lots of areas, but battery life isn’t really one of them. Ever since the Note 7 started combusting, it seems that advances in battery tech and capacity have taken a back seat. It’s a similar story for...

OnePlus 5: the coolest Android phone you can buy


OnePlus no longer is a flagship killer - it's become a bonafide Android flagship

Design ; Speed ; Brand

Screen ; Low light photography ; Price keeps rising

OnePlus 5 review


OnePlus takes the performance (and price) of its budget superphone to the next level...

Excellent design and build quality ; Ultra-fast performance ; Rapid charging and great battery life ; Streamlined Android UI

Audio lacks fine detail and refinement ; 1080p display still lacks subtlety ; No expandable storage

A good value phone with the features and performance you’d expect from something more expensive

Mo' money, no problems

Subtle styling improvements make for a better overall package ; As powerful as 2017 phones get, with great battery life to boot ; Dual cameras take brilliant daylight pics

Not as big a bargain as last year ; Screen sticks to 1080p ; Not the best at night-time photography

We’re not in true bargain territory any more, but the OnePlus 5 still beats the competition on price and now feels every bit the flagship phone

OnePlus 5 review


Dual-lens camera and top dog for performance

Premium design and feel ; Fantastic camera ; Phenomenal performance

Pricier than previous iterations ; Only Full HD display ; No microSD support

The OnePlus 5 may not be as cheap as the company's previous handsets, but it's one of the best phones on the market right now. A great camera, phenomenal performance and a premium design combine to make this a fantastic buy for anyone looking for a...

OnePlus 5 review: Gone, but not forgotten


The OnePlus 5 cements itself as the best “flagship killer” you can buy, but the OnePlus 5T launch is looming

Lengthy battery life ; Blazingly fast performance ; Beautiful new design

More expensive than before

The OnePlus 5 remains the best value smartphone on the market, then, but it's not quite the outright bargain its predecessors were.

OnePlus 5 review


The OnePlus 5 was one of the fastest, best-designed phones of the year - until the 5T came along. OnePlus has now confirmed it will be discontinued when stocks run dry.

OnePlus 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Which high-spec Android phone should you buy?


We're teeing up newbie OnePlus 5 against Samsung's revered Galaxy S8 to see which smartphone can earn the title of king of the Androids

Essentially, the decision comes down to personal design preference and budget, but we’d say the sixth smartphone from OnePlus just undercuts the Samsung S8 due to the surmountable price tag which comes without sacrificing excellent specs, essential...

OnePlus 5 review


Editors' Note : On Nov.16, 2017, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 5T , a followup to the OnePlus 5. Since the 5T's launch, the OnePlus 5 sold out, and the company is continuing with the 5T. What follows is our original OnePlus 5 review. Click here to read...

The OnePlus 5 is affordable and super fast, with an 18-hour battery. Its camera takes great portraits and low-light shots.

It costs more than any previous model, its design isn't anything special and it doesn’t have expandable storage.

The OnePlus 5 is outstanding, especially for the price; no other phone gives you the same bang for the buck.

OnePlus 5 Review: Can OnePlus win our ‘best phone’ award again?


Our OnePlus 5 review reveals our thoughts on the much-anticipated 2017 flagship phone, from the new dual-lens camera through to everyday user experience.

Strong value ; Unbeatable performance ; User-friendly customisable OS

Video quality needs improving ; No expandable storage ; Not water resistant

While the OnePlus 5 isn’t quite perfect, it does offer a competitive flagship experience for less cash than the competition. Killer performance, slick software, dependable photo quality and plenty of extra smarts make for a great handset, as well as...
