Gauthamk, 27 Aug 2017This is water proof???check out the you tube video. It is...
Using OP5 for more than 3 weeks now. So far so good. Bought an Otter box cover to addressed the slippery build but nonetheless, build is quite gorgeous, an almost look alike of iPhone 7. Issues reported where addressed by the update to Oxygen OS 4.5.8. Heard just rolling out the 4.5.10 ver. Performance wise, superb thru it's Snapdragon 835 processor. Response is very fast. Wifi connectivity thru LTE is very impressive. Can watch 1080p/2160P video streaming without any lags. True to it's monicker, it's really a flagship killer. Camera shots are crisp and sharp even in low lights. Speaker is loud and clear enough to listen, not annoying to the ears. Fast response on the finger print feature. aptX is superb but must be coupled with a device supporting aptX and aptX HD (mine is MEE x7 plus). Storage no problem with 128GB. Still not convinced, try it out and you'll see.
AnonD-695764, 30 Aug 2017My review of the OnePlus 5 after 2 weeks of usage:
Feels premium, sleek & light... more@haider52
That's one of the most honest and unbiased reviews I have ever read. Thank You.
My review of the OnePlus 5 after 2 weeks of usage:
Feels premium, sleek & light in hands. The rear of the phone looks similar to Iphone 7+ but feels very much different after usage. The front is very much similar to the OP3 & OP3T. All of the above wont make much of a difference if used with a back case as majority of users do.
Full HD 1080p display gets the job done. Similar to its predecessors & nothing unique. Battery efficient for sure. Auto brightness seems to be aggressive keeping the screen brightness dim in indoors & has to be adjusted manually time to time. Can be fixed with a software update. LED notification light is on the softer side. It is hardly visible in well lit areas & needs to be looked into to find the LED pulsing... it can be annoying at times.
The single mono firing speaker at the bottom is loud enough & is at par in audio quality with other flagships. Calls via speaker are loud & clear. Speaker grill placement might seem to be a bit awkward though if you have used front firing or stereo speaker setup before. I found the audio being muffled when using the device with both hands as my palm accidentally covered the speaker grill quite often. Audio output from the 3.5mm jack is perfect.
Snapdragon 835 coupled with 6/8gb RAM is blazing fast. Such stellar internals might not be required at the moment but it makes the phone future proof & is an added bonus at the given price. Real life performance is buttery smooth... games, heavy apps, multi tasking, fingerprint scanner can easily outperform other flagship devices without showing any signs of heat. Only felt the camera area slightly warm while recording videos at 4K for longer duration.
3300MaH battery might sound small in numbers but can easily last for a day for the not so heavy users. Heavy users with a 100% charge by 8am in the morning with 15-20 calls a day, regular follow ups on whatsapp, facebook, twitter, instagram, a bit of gaming, photography, youtube videos, music & so on might end up charging the phone again in the evening by 6-7pm which again is taken well care of by the magical dash charging. Put it on charge during your break time with a 15-20% battery & boom! You will be amazed to see its already 60-70% in roughly 15-20minutes. The only wait u will realize while charging is after it crosses 80% where it takes about an hour or so to reach the 100% mark if started from 0-5%.
The Dual camera setup is a welcome addition. Regular shots are fine & detailed in well lit conditions. Shots in indoor lighting are also above average but shots taken in low lighting is where you might require sturdy hands or a tripod to get a decent result. The portrait mode clicks perfect DSLR type images most of the time in bright conditions with a limitation of the subject being in 0.3-2metres range from the lens. Portrait mode in indoor lighting or low lighting situation struggles with noise in the images. Pro mode gives you manual controls & can click regular as well as RAW images for post production. Slow motion & Time lapse video also give a decent result in well lit conditions. Video recording at 4k after the update is smooth & is comparable to that of other flagships with OIS but at the cost of slight loss in quality. Front 16MP camera gives detailed images in bright outdoors as well as good image quality indoors. Video quality also from the same is vlogging good & captures detailed videos with clean audio in the open. Would suggest to check a detailed camera review on youtube for samples & a better perspective.
Oxygen OS skin over the Nougat OS is optimized to best suit the OP5 internals. Works without a glitch & the customization options will keep new users charmed for a while. Overall the software feels light on the phone without any hang ups or hiccups whatsoever. Regular OTA updates assure that the company is always working in the background for customer support by addressing issues immediately.
Design - Gives a satisfactory feel in the hand with its build & design.
Display - Full HD display will get the job done for most of its users.
Sound - Output is audible in most of the situations.
Performance - Can be titled as the "Fastest Android Phone" till date.
Battery - Will not give up on you when most needed. Dash charging is a wonder.
Camera - Excellent in bright conditions. Portrait mode will keep you clicking.
Software - Oxygen OS with its customization is just perfect.
Call Quality - Good in both to & from ends.
Storage - 64Gb or 128Gb depends totally on user preference.
Design - Slippery at times but a back cover or case can help.
Display - Quad HD display with a better screen to body ratio would have been a plus. Auto brightness keeps screen dim in indoors & LED notification light is on the softer side.
Sound - Stereo sound setup would have been a flagship killer quality.
Performance - No complaints. Can be improved with software updates
Battery - Bigger battery could clear a full day usage even for the heavy users.
Camera - There is scope for improvement as it doesn't deliver what it promised.
Software - More gestures maybe.
Call Quality - Haven't experienced any issues yet.
Storage - Expandable memory with a hybrid sim tray would be excellent.
Price - 128gb/8gb variant should have been selling for the price of 64gb/6gb variant to be a true flagship killer & the 64gb/6gb at a price slightly higher than the OP3T
Above are my personal opinion about the OP5 after more than 2 weeks of usage now... Thank you!
Am using this phone for more than a month now. A good looking, light weight, iphone 7plus copy, with slippery body so should be very carefull while holding it. It has a wonderful camera which makes you feel like a pro. But continous use of camera for a long time heats up back of the device specially between camera and 1plus logo. The only defect that i felt is while charging you can feel the current flow(in small amount) over the back of the body. I have been playing high graphic game from day one and it feels soo good,even better than ipad. Speaker is too loud with less clearity, feels like its disturbing you. Will rate 8.5/10.
Another killer from OnePlus. Have been using OnePlus 2 for over 2yrs now it was Touchwood expect for heating issues and slow charging. Phone is still going strong. Decided to move to OnePlus 5 because of Dash charging and dual lens.
Phone works flawlessly. Hope it lasts as good as my op2. Only one disadvantage I felt with op5 is the interface is nothing special compared to op2 and I feel like using an old mobile even after buying a new one.
Dash charge works wonderfully. From 40-90 within 15mins. 0-100 in less than a hour.
For those people who are confused between Honor 8 Pro and One Plus 5,
Every other +points of OP5 is negated by the company's greatest blunder, lack of a QuadHD screen.
The full potential of Snapdragon 835 can be used only when you play VR, really heavy games and 4K videos. You need a 2K or 4K screen for that.
Else you don't need the 10nm 835 processor and the huge RAM. A slightly inferior processor and 4GB or lesser RAM can easily drive a fullHD phone.
It is 2017 and OP is giving FHD screen to it's flagship!!!
3 years back LG had G3 with QuadHD screen that used to run beautifully with the processor of that time.
OP5 is like a taxi car fitted with sports car engine.
Whereas Honor 8 pro ticks all the right boxes and each of its hardware compliments other specs to make sure the buyer gets maximum value for the money he spend.
I am posting this review after using the device for almost 60 days and I would like to divide my review into pros and cons. (Delivered 25-Jun-2017)
1. Excellent Design,Thin, Dashing look ;-)
2. Excellent camera. Dual cameras do the job well. Specially DSLR blur effect is awesome..!!!
3. 8GB RAM with snapdragon 835 ensures that all apps work smoothly.
4. Assembled in India.
5. Dash Charging is quick.(Full Charge in 50-60min)
6. Like the new camera interface.
7. it is water resist also.
8. No-heating issues-I have used this device for many days and I must say this device barely heats up while doing intensive tasks & even in using 4G data also, thanks to ONEPLUS. 9. Fast fingerprint scanner 10. Display is Full HD. Seen full colour contrast..!!!
Cons. 1. Default Theme & Menu Icons are not attractive. I use Go Launcher for cool looks for Icon & Themes...!! 2. Its not 1 handy use phone operated by 2 hands only. Slidly big size but its ok manage it..!!!
3. No SD card slot.(Not Require)

Slim and low weight.
Spenco, 29 Aug 2017Xiaomi Mi6 or OP5? which do you advise? thanks in advance for your advises...OP5
AnonD-649506, 28 Aug 2017The Pixel was a flagship at the time it was released with the latest processor. It won't be a ... moreIf pixel 2 is announced, the pixel cannot be said as an midranger... Please think hard and try to stress out your brain man... You really need to use it
AnonD-649506, 28 Aug 2017Let's get into your first point, first Kirin 960 outperforms 821 in some day to day processes... moreSo is it the heavy graphic games that you play all the day on your smartphone?
Last year's flagship cannot be said a midranger... The Snapdragon 625 is a midrange chip, so when it was launched, last year's flagship chip was SD 810, so can the SD 625 outperform the SD 810 in RAW performance? A big NO...
And as anonym said, flagship is said to be unique in a way... Honor 8 pro has dual camera, a very good design, which midranger provides this good design and camera?
You've just made a wrong opinion and you just do not want to accept that the opinion is wrong and you're uttering bullshit to make people believe that your opinion is right, stop doing it man...
I never said that op5 is a bad phone... The argument is because of you saying that the honor 8 pro is a midranger and to prove that you're uttering bullshit...
Xiaomi Mi6 or OP5? which do you advise?
thanks in advance for your advises...
Syah, 29 Aug 2017Is the camera and battery life good? Does it has heating problem?Best camera performance.Good battery backup.No heating while browsing and watching YouTube.If download sometimes heating.But adjustable.I recommend to you.
AnonD-649506, 28 Aug 2017The Pixel was a flagship at the time it was released with the latest processor. It won't be a ... moreBetween was and won't be is the present, in which the Pixel(s) *ARE* Google's flagship phone. By your own logic OP5 isn't a flagship either, as the OP5T is likely to come-out in November (very near to the Pixel 2) with a next-generation SD836.
By the way, nice jedi dancing around the fact specs and benchmarks alone don't make a flagship, but rather the novelties and unique features that set that phone apart from the others. You can't call Honor a mid-ranger without putting the OP5 in that category as well. And yes, a mid-ranger can have flagship performance while still being a zero-innovation copy-cat cost effective cheap alternative (aka mid-ranger).
