I haven't seen any significant improvements in OnePlus flagships over time. This time as well you won't find some significant update except the 6GB RAM (if it really is there)
They could have improved the battery, added a QHD screen, added a microSD card slot and improved the design
Is there gonna be fast charging? Ever since all these pics and specs rumors came out, the fast charging rumor has been quiet for while
Mobilemaster, 26 May 2016That is not true. The G5 has Fm radio.than that the good news.
Abhi, 25 May 2016Same here... I to feel disappointed.... postponed my purchse by 1+ yr for the lack of reasonab... moreWith 128GB of internal storage, micro sd is 100% useless. Internal storage is still 3X times faster and much more realiable/long lasting. Samsung offering 32GB S7/S7 Edge is pathetic sadly... should seriously be 64GB standard and 128GB upgrade. 32GB was fine in 2014, not in 2016!
Dammm serious killer flagship phone which will eventually rock mobile market 6gb ram with snapdragon 820 & optimized Marshmallow os
Lack of SD card slot is not the end of the world, plenty of cloud storage plus the option/ability to plug extra storage in via the micro usb solves this for most users. There are plenty of other phones out that do have micro SD slots if that's not enough, quite simple really.
Lack of FM radio is not a problem since Play Store is loaded with radio apps from around the world - most work offline too.
Personal opinion cons;
Don't like the design or placement of the FP scanner. Looks better than the OP2 but it just looks plain. For the record, it is not a clone! I can direct you to many actual clones.
Battery is still too small. 3000mAh was fine 2 years ago, it needs to be close to 4000 by now, realistically and add a couple of mm.
Personal opinion pros;
Like the 1080p screen. 2k is a waste of battery power at this size.
I like the metal build, keeps up with most other companies.
VOOC fast charging. Full charge in 15 minutes anyone? Always good in emergencies.
OxygenOS is proving to be a bonus - not as much as Cyanogen or stock Android however.
Starting at £240.

AnonD-388534, 26 May 2016the motto behind this is snapdragon 820 doesnt support fmThat is not true. The G5 has Fm radio.
Balaji, 26 May 2016SD card is a must have. Also, wondering why Radio is NO and what is the motto behind thisGood question!
I am curious also why they refuse to add these basic stuff as well.

I to feel disappointed.... postponed my purchse by 1+ yr for the lack of reasonably priced model (Many lack sd slot and worst even some share sd slot with NanoSIM ??????? WTF ?? How much space are you saving by sharing nanosim with microSD ??? )
Yes, another disappointment of brand change from internal SD_Micro and removable battery to not.. Rumor has it, Samsung got hit because of this and is bringing back at least removable storage.
Especially since OnePlus is releasing their own VR headset to compete with Samsung. VR content is huge.
