High specs, Good design.
Still not a complete flagship.
Not a flawless UI. One plus after sale service is not trustable. The quality of the phone is not as good as a flagship phone. Previous One plus devices encountered hardware failures.
There is no water proofing either.
The uncomfortable placement of finger print sensor is not a property of a flagship.
High on specs doesn't make a smartphone a flagship. Nothing unique on this phone. It is a normal display.
It is not the best phone in the market hence the price is low. can only compete with the likes of xperia xzs.
Xperia xzs premium is the best best phone in the world rite now. Can check one plus 5 vs xz premium performance videos to know how xz premium beats one plus 5 with just 4gb of ram.
Still it's better than Samsung Galaxy s8 plus in performance.
To say it a flagship it must compete with xz premium.
One plus 5 is a good mobile for its price. In fact the best.
But is it a flagship? No. It's just something between a midranger and a flagship.
Owning a one plus 5 isn't as good as owning a xz premium.
xOdd, 01 Jul 2017Jesus christ you're seriously annoying, Jerry did a durability test a few days ago and the S8 ... moreSpot on bro, you scored a perfect ten. Mi 6 outclasses OP 5 by mile, even gives S8 a run for its money.
Oneplus 5 with plastic back cover shouldn't cost more than $300 which feel ugly to hold, and there's no chrome or glass finish. Oneplus killed off all their premium design since Oneplus 3.
Jesus christ you're seriously annoying, Jerry did a durability test a few days ago and the S8 stood better than your so called OP5. The OP5 screen went off the screen and a slight bend happened whilst the S8 didn't even bend at all. And actually I don't think someone's gonna live in the desert and use a smartphone, and what you're saying is false mate. Durability tests proved that the S6 Edge, S7 Edge, S8 and S8+ and pretty much as durable as other flagships if not more durable. And seriously, most people appreciate a good design and good looking phone, dual curved QHD screen for VR, water resisting when going to the beach or sailing, a REAL ORIGINAL design to admire. The S8 costs around 600 euros here and I'll gladly pay that extra 100 for OIS (it's a necessity and it defenitely has a better camera) and other luxuries and defenitely for the customer service that I don't think OP have it. And performance wise, I think every phone around with SD835 would play games and run apps the same way, and I rather have a rich UI such as Samsung's UX or HTC's Sense UI rather than vanilla android without any updates later on. You ain't gonna walk around with your phone running benchmarks and bragging about a terrible camera and stolen design infront of others (unless you're literally brainwashed). And for your records, Xiaomi Mi 6 is cheaper than you're so called OP5 by almost 100$ and it's basically better in everything (Splash resistance/OIS/Same or higher scores on benchmarks/A real x2 optic zoom/Stereo speakers). And it's been proved by different youtube to be pretty much durable as other flagships. What do you call that then ? Does Xiaomi suck people's money off for needless features? It's your stupid company that's charging 500$ for a phone that's basically lacking many features mate.
I'd suggest you'd stop lying to people and take things from a balanced point of view instead of being a fanboy or a hired gun. And I'm not even a Samsung user, I'm an Apple fanboy, I'm just pissed off that people like you call innovative and necessary features worthless and extra simply because the phone you like doesn't have them in it.
And one last note, grow up and stop acting up like you've handeled all the phones you're talking about, I'm pretty sure you didn't even lay your hand on an iPhone 7 Plus or an S8.
And yeah, I'm pretty sure my iPhone 7 Plus's design has been ripped straight out by OP, where's the innovative part in that.
Abhinav AgaRwaL, 01 Jul 2017Is This Device Avl In India? Is not only available but for India market it also made there by Oppo..
RaghavaZ, 30 Jun 2017So you live in a place where there is no rainfall. I didn't know that a place like that exists... moreMan and yes a place with no rain exist for example desert Gobi or Death Walley and more can continue. Anyway water protection curved screen eye scanner i like to repeat my self are just useless add on which cost you lot of extra money and 99% of global population finds no use in that.
I am working in store where i am sell Phones and accesorize and you have no idea how many customers i had which asked me to turn off bottom screen panels on Samsung S6 edge and S6edge+ S7 and Plus and S8 and plus. Just a finger there by mistake and in no time it opens something you dont want. Its a definitely waste of money i really cant cope with why some people never understands.
Parth, 01 Jul 2017I am leaving in india right now but i shifting in czech republic after 2 month. I m thinking t... moreHey man i am from Slovakia next country and many people here carry phones from Oneplus so it will definitely work.
If you are able to speack czech language try www.heureka.cz you can buy this phone there as well.
And because you can buy it in czech republic it will probably work.
RaghavaZ, 30 Jun 2017Just go through the comparison tests done by GSMA and see who the winner is in each section. "... moreMan i dunno who concluded what but if you come to population and ask 1000 people at random most of them say having curved screen IP68 eye scanner and other crap added by samsung a waste of money. One fact is what GSM Arena says and other fact is reality how many people are willing to pay 400 extra for something they really dont need and have no practical usage if you arent really jackass.
RaghavaZ, 30 Jun 2017So you live in a place where there is no rainfall. I didn't know that a place like that exists... moreSomething like that.
But curved screen its just waste of money.
Like television. You can have flat screen or plasma TV but curved screen adds nothing extra just cost much more to make but have nothing special on it apart it looking great.
Samsung is same. They make tons of useless crap and ask lot of money for it.
And to that rain story you must been really blind to not see dark clouds in the sky.
I bear phone from a Lenovo company at the moment and it literary never drowned. Having a good screen protector and a high quality book case and even on strong rain i can carry my phone in a pockets and nothing happened.
So if you were careless its your fault.

Flagship for is flagship for and compared to others its a real beast.
Useless add-ons like water resistance eye scanner etc just cost you more money but you really have no use of that unless your both hands are left hands :-)
I am leaving in india right now but i shifting in czech republic after 2 month. I m thinking to buy oneplus 5 so, it will work on czech network LTE or not.. pls give suggestions.

Cpt. Power, 30 Jun 2017Man the camera is approximately the same. So S8 is waste of money. Design is really bad as i... moreSo you live in a place where there is no rainfall. I didn't know that a place like that exists. I too felt the same like you until my phone was exposed to rain which came all of a sudden and got a bill which is far more than a new phone itself. Not just Samsung, even your OnePlus charges more for any kind of replacement. My cousin's op2 was exposed to rain, and was damaged and OnePlus charged ₹28,000 for the replacement where a new phone cost me ₹24999! Everyone is greedy here not just Samsung and Apple. Only the cam and processor are new in OP5 and screen is just a remodeled OP3T screen and design everybody knows from where it came. What OnePlus did is to cram new proceesor and cam in a body with same front as 3T and back just copied from iPhone 7 plus. So they could have easily provided those missing features with the cost saved from redesigning and putting a new screen, atleast in 8gb version which is priced in the range of S7, xz, and iPhone 7. You are advising me to use phone carefully instead of asking for waterproofing, i will say the same for S8's curved screen. If used carefully it won't break just as my S6E's screen which is still just as new even after 2 and half year of abuse.

RaghavaZ, 30 Jun 2017Just go through the comparison tests done by GSMA and see who the winner is in each section. "... moreMan the camera is approximately the same. So S8 is waste of money.
Design is really bad as i said before but some people never understands and always talke the same.
Curved screen is awesome for breaking the phone really fast then enjoy a 400 eur bill for repairs.
And IP68 unless you live in a rain forest is useless.
If you dont came home drunk and accidentally flush your phone into toilet during vomiting you literary dont need IP68 thus water resistance. So all this is just waste of money and good business for a greed Samsung Company. Any other man on the earth will agree with me but you looks like you are something special. Please ignore me and waste your money as you like and feed Samsung with your money they will really appreciate it. I will rather have a flagship killer for 500 than an ugly curved phone with no bezels and easily to break screen from a greedy company like Samsung which cost 300-400 extra which is waste of money.
I rather support charity for extra 400 than pay this for a phone with some useless add-ons.

"Only, once the iPhone is out, the OnePlus 5 loses yet some more ground. The S8 is a little more expensive but isn't it worth it, all things considered? There's no portrait mode on the S8, that's for sure. But there are all those important bits we listed a couple of paragraphs earlier." They too concluded that S8's screen, camera, design, and IP68 are worth the extra investment.
