Anonymous, 22 Jun 2017Don't use phones for storing stuff, unless the stored stuff is backed up on a computer, even i... moreAgreed, but that doesn't mean that an SD card in the phone isn't a valuable feature. There's also layers of backup possible. Can backup things that are not as important to SD card (preferences, configuration, etc), and make sure all photos go (eventually) to computer / cloud. In the case of my LG G4 failures, I was backing up my car fuel/maintenance logs to the sdcard and then cloud, but still would be unhappy to lose a single entry that wasn't sync'd yet. Also the app had an error backing up to the cloud, so sdcard backup was very useful.
Podcasts, downloaded videos, etc are not important to backup, but it's still really nice to have them on the phone. Road trips, boat and nature excursions may put one out of range and then the downloaded content is nice to have.
Being able to have a card to transfer things on and off the phone is nice also. There are plenty of great reasons why SD cards are good to have in phones. This is why they were put into them starting over a decade ago. And when Samsung took it out of the S6, they regretted it - they also aren't the only manufacturer to try removing the card slot and then put it back in. Super popular phones like the moto g5 may sacrifice expensive features like the fastest processor; but without flashy features and big marketing budgets they know that removing the inexpensive sd slot would adversely impact their sales. OnePlus is following the Apple model of encouraging users to buy the higher spec'd version; but they are not even charging enough to alter their margins. It doesn't make any sense - unless one chalks it up to bad decision making.
Cpt. Power, 26 Jun 2017For 500 its a true star on the market much better than any other phone ever released.
Becaus... moreNope, it's more like a KIA K900/Quoris if you like to compare this phone with a car.
I mean it's okay but you can't be cool in a KIA like you'll never be cool holding a OP5.

A number of OnePlus 5 users have also reported another problem of drop in performance in battery from 6 hrs one day to 4 hrs with similar kind of usage next day. Battery is unstable which needs to be checked by technical team of OP 5.

only ad make one pus 5 popular. display still full hd no qhd or 4k as in sony. same processor as s8 or xz premium. only ram 8 gb.
I have been using One plus 5 Midnight black for last 3 days. Every night in standby mode my battery is dropping down by 20-25%. When I checked with customer care, I was asked to full discharge and charge phone 3 times (0-100%) and then to wipe cache data and reboot. My Lenovo k4 note hardly drops by 5% in standby mode. I am using One plus device for the first time. So, I am not aware of how to reduce battery drain as in day time battery is working perfectly. Can any user suggest me on ways to address this issue who may have faced similar problems in One plus phones.

BeeAnt, 26 Jun 2017If you have more money I bet you'll buy another phone from the more popular brand.You are wrong. If i have more money i buy this one. Other brands are just garbage selling expensive pieces which offers approximately same thing.
Oneplus is best or one of best phone brands on the market.
Only better is Vertu. And maybe Gresso but even their phones are really luxury specs are outdated.
In my opinion, OnePlus 5 looks a lot like Iphone
Anyone tried to use the telephoto lens independently to zoom? and not the regular wide angle?
This is total farud company they.have no legal entity in india only sold thru cloud tail horrible service center i gave them my one plus to borivli service center 2 years and no response evwn after a notices to all involved nevwr ever buy a one plus product
kumar, 26 Jun 2017i want amoled screen mobile,,, i lv amoledI know bout S3 pretty much, still using it from day-1 release. For AMOLED, try OnePlus 3T at U'r local store if U consider to adopt OP5. OP5 is all about performance upgrade from 3T (the margin is not much for everyday usages). The improvements upgrades are huge from S3, jst like outrun three wheels Bajaj with Ferrari.
I'd also suggest to consider S7 (now with lower price) or S8 if U care about after sales service much. A5 or A7 are good options too for budget.
