equinox07, 20 Sep 2017planning to buy this phone....can someone tell me is the absence of OIS a big deal in camera f... moreNope IMO EIS equals to OIS. When filming in 4K on screen you can see the shakingness, but the end result when you watch the videoclips you recorded it's supersmooth, it's better than the Google Pixel imo. It's a different experience. With EIS you get way faster focus time and the images don't look as wabbly as with OIS.
The main advantage of OIS is that is doesn't need to crop the images nor do any editing while recording, the hardware does it for you.
For me, EIS on the oneplus 5 is far more stable than OIS. i got a nexus 5 and OIS was wobbling it felt weird. EIS may happen too but it's rarely the case, unless you tremble like you're naked on antartica trying to video record
Trax3x, 21 Sep 2017please what should i buy , S8 plus or One plus 5 !! Nokia 3310
deepak, 22 Sep 2017one plus 5 is loosing there signal every time,but overall good phone I am using two SIM, very powerful signal.Chek your sim.
Amazing product made by Oneplus team. I congratulate them to present this product to us. About the shipment of this phone, I'm really happy.
Release Jet Black version, would like a glossy design. Uni-metal body is so overrated.
Partial Sub , 19 Sep 2017Which would be a better option One Plus 5 or Huawei P10+ ? Base on performance and Specs. Performance and specs oneplus 5 waybetter camera go for huawei p10+
Totally a Flagship killer. One plus should start using '' FLAGSHIP KILLER '' as it's tag line again. I was using one plus 3 before, it was an amazing mobile, but the one plus 5 is more better. Don't think just go for it.
Trax3x, 21 Sep 2017please what should i buy , S8 plus or One plus 5 !! For better camera and waterproofing feature, go for S8 Plus. But if you don't mind any features from that, go for OnePlus 5. Super smooth performance, better battery life. But the camera on OP5 still competitive with other flagship and wasn't disappointing, but the S8 little bit better.
Trax3x, 21 Sep 2017please what should i buy , S8 plus or One plus 5 !! Note 8
Awesome phone. Fabulous speed. The only issue is with its touch. I have an iPhone and the touch of this phone is nowhere near to that. Otherwise it's a fantastic product and no second thoughts in buying it. Battery backup is awesome. So is it's speed.
One of the best phone in the market. Great specs, I am using it for more than a month and it didn't even hang once. Dash charging feature is awesome, it charges the phone from 10% to 60% in 20 min.. that too without phone getting heated up. Camera clarity is too good. The best thing is operation keys are customisable.
Over all a great phone
if your main concern on phones was the camera, then you better try other phones instead. the EIS is OK but not good, it kinda crops every frame you are shooting at then centers them to reduce the shaking so you might end up loosing a little area on what you see during the recording (atleast that's what i feel). what i want was a phone to run PPSSPP and dolphin games smoothly, so camera problems doesn't bother me. already bought the phone, kinda thinner and lighter than i imagined. the volume and power buttons rattle a little if you did rattle it manually. speaker was being blocked a little when playing games on landscape mode. jelly scrolling effect is noticeable if you really searched for it. the finger print scanner was fast, like DUDE? wtf? you'll get what i mean once you buy it. because it's light and thin it might slip on your hand so i already ordered dbrand skins. atleast the dbrand skins looks way better than that OP5 special edition scribble on the back style.
planning to buy this phone....can someone tell me is the absence of OIS a big deal in camera functionality as the critics said...?? and how does the durability and build quality go...?
Lots of bugs in the phones camera:
Please do not buy this phone being tempted by its camera. I am really frustrated on how the video recording works on this phone. I am facing the following two problems and its got worse after update
1. The video frame size is different while recording an saving. Meaning while recording your video it might seem that you are covering a good area, but while playing it, you will notice that you have covered less area than it was actually appearing
2. After the update there is this awful dub.. dub.. dub.. noise when playing recorded videos.
Not just me, all my friends were very disappointed on how this so called signature phone works. Hope Oneplus pays attention to this
