OnePlus 5: The much-awaited flagship smartphone is officially out

Whether the OnePlus 5 will help the company capture a substantial chunk of the hotly-contested smartphone space remains to be seen. Read on to find out OnePlus 5 specs, features and more! That's hardly surprising given all the pre-launch hype we have been through though the phone too comes across as a surprising mix of hits and misses.

Ignore the fact that it looks very similar to an iPhone 7 Plus.

The main dual camera has 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors, and like the iPhone, features a Portrait Mode to give photos a "bokeh" effect, with a sharp subject and blurred background. That's why we would have liked to see OnePlus pursue a more personal avenue with the design of its latest flagship. But it's even better than fast charging on the Galaxy S8 because it still charges fast when you're using the phone. Just which phone is better?

The 5.5-inch screen device has a Full HD AMOLED display at a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.

Battery life is an important factor for any smartphone and the OnePlus 5 passed this one with flying colors. And they sure have the figures to prove their point. You have a 16MP wide-angle lens and a 20MP telephoto sensor coupled with dual LED flash. Also, focusing on the OnePlus 5 is 40 per cent faster than the OnePlus 3T. Here's hoping OnePlus can use software magic to make their latest cameras better. And is the extra RAM really that necessary? And that includes even the S8 whose UI animation does eat up a few milliseconds. That's great, OnePlus, what about Android P? Its raw grunt that the phone exudes and can shred any task that you throw at it. This unit only costs $518 complete with global IOS, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory.

Smartphones are getting increasingly smarter by the day.

OnePlus has somehow managed to squeeze out staggering specs for a "where's the catch?" price yet again with the OnePlus 5, this time retailing from just £449. BUT the dual lens camera on the OnePlus 5 outdoes the dual lens found on the iPhone 7 Plus. Why?

The higher powers at OnePlus told The Sun Online that their customers were nagging them over "noisy vibrations" so they installed a new motor with 20 percent less noise.

The onePlus mantra of "Never Settle", was no more apparent in the swift release of the 3T, so soon after it's older sibling.
