Crazy value for money

OnePlus 5

from Know Your Mobile

Insane value for money, essentially - something that OnePlus has become well-known for, but even by its own measure it has knocked the ball well out of the park. Yes, the price has gone up a bit from earlier models, but it is still WELL short of the competition in terms of similar spec line ups.

Digital Photography Review

Looks and feels like a real top-end device all around

OnePlus 5

from Digital Photography Review

In certain shooting situations the OnePlus 5 shows some limitations in terms of pixel-level image quality but overall the camera captures good exposures with wide dynamic range and pleasant colors. In video mode we were especially impressed by the excellent stabilization and thanks to a premium look and feel, powerful processing, and ample memory the OnePlus is a great device in general use.

Not your typical flagship

OnePlus 5

from Beta News

The OnePlus 5 is a high-end product, but it is not your typical flagship. Compared to any of the traditional players in this space, it is significantly more affordable. But it does not skimp on features.

Guarantees picture perfect shots and a flagship experience

OnePlus 5

from VR-Zone

In general, the OnePlus 5 is a great buy, its price hits the bottom end of premium flagships and the top end for midrangers, but it definitely offers specifications that even the best smartphones in the industry have difficulty matching. If you love sleek smartphones that give you nearly unrivalled power and speed as well as a great shooter, definitely do consider the OnePlus 5 as your next smartphone.

Not perfect, but it is an affordable and still very good flagship smartphone

OnePlus 5

from Notebookcheck

The OnePlus 5 is a comparatively cheap smartphone with flagship qualities that did slip up a little regarding image quality of the camera but is very convincing in other areas: performance, screen, case and voice quality are all great.

Excellent performance in all facets from top-end hardware

OnePlus 5

from TechSpot

The OnePlus 5 is a very well-rounded phone for the price, it’s just not the screaming value proposition OnePlus phones once were.

OnePlus 5

from Softpedia

It’s the closest you can get to an iPhone running Android, so if you’re currently an Apple customer who wants to switch sides, the OnePlus 5 could make the transition substantially smoother.

What Hi-Fi

Takes the performance (and price) of its budget superphone to the next level

OnePlus 5

from What Hi-Fi

It might be the priciest phone OnePlus has ever made, but it justifies the extra cash with a slicker design and much-improved cameras. Combined with fantastic performance and great battery life, it’s one of the more convincing packages you’ll find for the price. The OnePlus 5 isn’t perfect, though. Extras like expandable storage and waterproofing are still missing, and video quality hasn’t received a noticeable boost over last year’s OnePlus 3T. That means it has been left behind by 2017’s true flagship phones. You might not find better for less, but spend just a little more and you’ll get a lot more phone for your money.

Reigns supreme as the value queen of the premium Android market

OnePlus 5

from Chip Chick

The OnePlus 5 is a really good phone. There are zero issues with performance and connectivity, the battery life is excellent, and the camera is pretty good, even if it’s not in the topmost tier. Using a 1080p display, a so-so mono speaker, and a lack of waterproofing aren’t ideal, but they’re all pretty reasonable ways to keep the cost of the phone down. If it weren’t for a number of funky software problems (that at least can be fixed with updates), the OnePlus 5 would be almost unassailable at its price.

V3

Most expensive OnePlus smartphone to date - but also the best specified

OnePlus 5

from V3

The OnePlus 5 is, undoubtedly, the best phone you can buy right now for less than five hundred notes. That's not to say the OnePlus doesn't have its flaws. Its camera, billed as the handset's standout feature, can struggle on occasion - in particular, in low-light. It packs an ageing Full HD display as opposed to QHD, and, there's no denying, this thing looks uncomfortably like an iPhone 7 Plus. However, for £450, you're not going to find another smartphone with similar performance, nor with a battery life that will make it into a second day with some juice left in the tank. And, although its design is arguably modeled on the Apple iPhone, it's still one of the most premium-looking 'mid-range' phones on the market.

WARRENTY DOES NOT EXIST

OnePlus One

Do not expect the phone to last more than 1 year. I bought 2 phones both are faulty and need fixing after 1 year, in the first all microphones stopped working - the standard one and the one that is used when on speaker. The other had the dead phone effect - blacked out completely. Thsi is not a flagship killer its a dead flagship!
