Huge disappointment! Yes the design was the biggest, esp because the marvelous concept leaks and because it was about time to give that departion some love and because it's another Chinese company that can't do anything better, than copy Apple.
The battery is the second biggest disappointment, just why why? Huuge compromise and you know why it happened? So that it will be as thin as an iPhone....And thirdly the price tag, this phone took the mantle after the Nexus, as the best price for buck, they backstabbed their royal fans with that. As a personal grudge, I was also disappointed but not seeing them improving their low light camera performance and blindly go copying Apple again, by adding a 3rd camera like every other low life copycat that has no leader aspirations.
Ok in their love and dedication to copy Apple, they scrapped the SD card too, but what's their excuse for not going waterproof?? Even Apple did it...
The only positive side is they kept dual SIM and 1080p.
Nothing premium about Oneplus 5, the design is heavily plagiarised from iPhone 7s and back cover made out of matte costing $500. I actually hoped for a glass body and waterproof protection but my attention is now turning towards Sony which I'll have to pay a bit more to buy a device that meets all my requirement.
As far as design goes, what do you guys expect? Honestly, it was the best move Oneplus could make. Their home market is China which is an incredibly iPhone centric market. I'm certain there is an entire demographic that wants an iPhone but can't afford one. Hence the iPhone-esque design. Not to mention, based on pure aesthetics, top left and horizonatal dual cameras are miles more pleasing than top center and horizontal. Dont be sick smartphone snobs. It's a flagship specced device for less than $500. What is there really to complain about? There's an entire segment of devices with Top tier specs, ad cards and IP ratings and so forth, but they cost at least $700. So quit crying about it and continue pandering to Samsung and Apple.
Not worth the money, same with iphone, expensive price tag. No real improvement, exept for an soc which is for me sd820 but renamed to sd835. I will stick with my s7 edge and mi5
As of this writing, most votes point to a disappointment. I bet that has a lot (maybe everything to do) with the design and then some to do with "missing" features such as wireless charging, waterproofing and SD card support.
I was honestly somewhat underwhelmed with the fact that they chose to go with a design so similar to the iPhone 7. Then again, the silver lining is that you get a great design (Apple's) without the restrictions of the iOS. That and some of the other positives like the Snapdragon 835, 8 GB of RAM and the dual cameras do make it a good value proposition overall. And I suppose that's what OnePlus was aiming to provide.
As for it's price, yes it's expensive but it still is relatively lesser when compared to the Galaxy S8, HTC U11, Xperia Premium XZ and iPhone 7 / 7 Plus.
no i'll stick with 1+3/3T haha most people from africa dont know even waht is nokia 3310XD
I wouldn't know as they still haven't delivered mine. Payment went through but my order is stuck in "Processing". Numerous attempts to find out what's going on have resulted in scripted excuses. They might make pretty good phones, but their customer service stinks.
Tsuki, 25 Jun 2017Did OnePlus ever supported SD cards in their flagships? What were you even expecting! I was expecting a change of strategy. Even Samsung understood their mistake.
SD card is not just about storage size, it's more about data safety and easiness of format.
Tsuki, 25 Jun 2017According to XDA using the full power of the chipset is cheating. So the Beast Mode of Samsung is cheating then... No wonder why Apple scores so high...
It's 2017. I was hoping for an at least IP rating of IP68 and an original design. Other than that it's great
The design is the biggest disappointment last year 3/3T had awesome design and 1080p in 2017 is the 2nd disappointment but not of a problem other than that pretty solid phone
A lack of display improvement, lack of IP rating and lack of microSD card slot were the biggest bummers, but dual-sim is still something rare on flagships and a welcome addition.

Between the design, lack of microSD card & Ingress rating, going with a useless 8GB of RAM instead of upping the resolution or the battery (6GB was already more than enough!), it's just not worth it for me... the biggest issue with me is the ingress protection, I live in a rainy city and already lost 2 phones to water damage within my family.... went with an LG G6 instead... even got it for £20 cheaper than the 128GB OP5!!
Not even close. An iphone ripoff in appearance, battery not large enough, quite expensive, no SD card support.
Oneplus do not care for the users that supported them at their beginning anymore, namely the power users. They just want to compete with Samsung and the other trendy manufacturers, hoping to enlarge their market share. Good luck with that, I'm out.
