The only thing OnePlus didn't settle is price. Everything is same lame old 3T except price
have the 1+3, so not going to swich to 1+5.
I was hyped to buy it, but i just stoped for few minutes and thought about it.
Maybe next year, when they implement stereo speakers (one should hhope).
OP5 failed in camera department. How could they skip OIS?? without OIS the low light photos will be miserable and videos will suffer. They tried their best for the camera but could not match the likes of s8 , htc u11. rest is ok. camera reviews of op5 are not positive from famous youtube reviewers . ois is sorely missed.
Flagship killer killed itself by reducing battery capacity and way too expensive.
I think the OnePlus 5 is an overclocked Midnight Black OnePlus 3T but with a different battery and one more camera at the back. . .I think the "change" could and should be a little bit different in terms of the phone's design and display.
for me, its totally fine because they dont announce anything new and strongly remain the opinion for 1080p panel. if you guys want to complain for this small disadvantage, think again. why it is called flagship killer? because you can get a good premium smartphone with such a lower price. dont forget that and for the prize, its totally reasonable for me to ditch unnecessary features as long as it dont disturb overall experience. have a good day

SohailSays, 21 Jun 2017So, what they changed is, 8GB RAM (2GB Extra than its sibling which was not even necessary. 6G... moreAbsolutely mate!!...This is like copying in exam from a student who eventually scores worst than you..Hahaha..Poor OnePlus users. Cheated yet again...fooled yet again..."Chinesed" yet again!!
This really doesn't bother me as the 1080P panel on the 3T is fantastic they've refined it for the oneplus 5 . And saved money on the screen to bring better overall performance
This is still an android enthusiast phone. We got the spec bumps in all the right places and we end up with a performance monster. It's too bad they feel the need to top the charts of the benchmarks, a practise that was abandoned by Samsung, lg and HTC some years ago because of the consumer backlashes they recieved back then. Let's hope they don't play lottery with the storage and DDR-ram units like Huawei does, that would definitely be bad for business.
Until more incriminating evidence surfaces I think this is a fantastic phone for enthusiasts with amazing raw power and near-stock Android.
OnePlus failed with the 5, just like they did with the 2. hope that they will recover once again with 6.
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2017Screen is already maxed. Nowhere to go after 1080p in the case of screen clarity , nowhere ... more1440p is enough for me, but in 2019 all flagship phones aside from iPhone will have 4K screen.
So would we be right in saying, the 3T could see an update to improve the touch latency problem and add the DCI-P3 screen calibration?
So, what they changed is, 8GB RAM (2GB Extra than its sibling which was not even necessary. 6GB is more than enough), dual camera and Snapdragon 835.
What else? Lol OnePlus, you are digging your own grave.
Oh wait, did I mention that they cheated benchmarks just the way they did with OnePlus 3?
Haha and oh, the same display with lower sunlight legibility.
Damn Carl Pie, back at it again.

TechLover1, 21 Jun 2017So what's this, some sort of a downhill, OP5, 3T, 3, or at least in the display department, bu... moreScreen is already maxed.
Nowhere to go after 1080p in the case of screen clarity , nowhere to go after amoled in the case of colours + accuracy.
I guess decreasing screen consumption is the only thing that remains.
