Replace: OnePlus has introduced its newest flagship to Australia in a restricted inventory "comfortable launch" occasion to check the market. With the 2 fashions priced at $599 and $699, the OnePlus 5 dominates every little thing in its worth bracket, and even offers some soon-to-be-released flagships a run for his or her cash.

The OnePlus 5 has some critical competitors within the type of the smaller, cheaper Honor 9 – one other handset making an attempt to be a flagship killer. Be sure to learn our full Honor 9 review.

Trying on the OnePlus 5, it’s laborious to consider that the corporate that made it’s lower than 4 years previous. It is a cellphone that manages to carry its personal alongside flagship gadgets from corporations which have huge pots of cash to spend on analysis, growth and design, and a decade or extra of expertise making smartphones.

But OnePlus has managed to make among the best telephones of 2017, and maintain the worth decrease than many of the competitors.

OnePlus has at all times made spectacular telephones at sub-flagship costs, however with this iteration the Chinese language firm has realized from earlier errors, and constructed on its successes, to create an all-round implausible cellphone.

OnePlus 5 worth and launch date

  • Two variations: begins at $479 (£449, AU$599)
  • Accessible now in US and UK, and has been 'comfortable' launched in Australia
  • In US, works with AT&T and T-Cellular, not Verizon or Dash

The OnePlus 5 prices greater than the OnePlus 3T. That’s the laborious fact about this new cellphone, but it surely’s partly as a result of OnePlus has determined to make use of extra premium supplies.

OnePlus has produced two variations of the OnePlus 5, with the bottom mannequin coming with 64GB of inner storage and 6GB of RAM and costing you $479 (£449, AU$599).

The upper-end model, with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, is priced at $539 (£499, AU$699) and that’s the gadget we’re reviewing right here. 

Whichever model you purchase, it’s an enormous worth bounce in comparison with the OnePlus 3T, which price $439 (£399, round AU$580) for the 64GB mannequin and $479 (£439, round AU$630) for the 128GB model.

And keep in mind that OnePlus had already elevated the worth for that cellphone launch – the OnePlus 3, launched in June 2016, was solely $399 (£329, round AU$450). Should you’re seeking to improve the OnePlus cellphone you purchased this time final 12 months, you’re going to be spending fairly a bit greater than you might have anticipated on the OnePlus 5.

The official OnePlus 5 launch date was June 27 with the cellphone occurring normal sale on that date, but it surely was out there in restricted numbers at pop-up occasions and on-line earlier than this date.

Briefly, you’ll be able to simply decide up the OnePlus 5 from the OnePlus web site.

Within the UK, community supplier O2 has unique rights to inventory the OnePlus 5 in retailer, the place it's out there on contract. Paying £9.99 upfront and £40 per thirty days for 2 years will get you the cellphone, limitless calls and texts and 1GB of knowledge.

Within the US, it's not being offered by way of carriers, however the unlocked OnePlus 5 works with AT&T, T-Cellular and different smaller MVNO GSM carriers. It received't, nonetheless, works with Verizon, Dash or US Mobile resulting from its lack of CDMA bands.

In Australia, OnePlus has only in the near past launched the product by way of a "comfortable launch" which includes making a restricted quantity of inventory out there so the corporate can take a look at out the Australian market. 

The Australian costs at the moment on supply is probably not indicative of any future releases ($599 and $699) however contemplating how nicely they’ve fared with the foreign money conversion, these handsets are critical contenders within the mid-range market, and even give some flagships a run for his or her cash. As an illustration, the Nokia eight is but to be launched in Australia at $899 but options the identical chipset, GPU, and half the RAM of the OnePlus 5.

Key options

  • New premium design makes it the best-looking OnePlus cellphone but
  • Twin-lens digicam permits for lossless zoom, just like the iPhone 7 Plus

Trying on the spec listing for the OnePlus 5, you would possibly suppose it is a slightly restricted improve, however there just a few key options the corporate is pushing to make this the subsequent cellphone you’ll wish to purchase, at first of which is the brand new digicam.

That is now a dual-lens setup that means that you can seize some attractive-looking 'bokeh' pictures with artfully blurred backgrounds, in addition to boasting a 'lossless' zoom characteristic, which primarily implies that zooming in on topics will solely end in a negligible discount in picture high quality.

This characteristic works in an identical option to the shooter on the iPhone 7 Plus, however right here you're getting it on a extra inexpensive cellphone. The aperture on the primary sensor right here can also be impressively huge, and it means you’ll have the ability to take among the finest smartphone photographs potential proper now.

The design of the brand new cellphone seems like an enormous step up for OnePlus. It's nonetheless utilizing the identical supplies because the OnePlus 3T – the physique is product of anodized aluminum – however that is the slimmest and most tasty OnePlus cellphone to this point.

OnePlus additionally needs this to be essentially the most highly effective cellphone available on the market – and the excellent news is it's succeeded, with our testing exhibiting it to have the strongest benchmarking scores of any gadget available on the market on the time of testing.


  • Thinnest cellphone OnePlus has ever made
  • There's nonetheless a three.5mm headphone jack for wired headsets
  • Solely out there in two colours – darkish grey or deep black

The OnePlus 5 is the best-looking gadget the corporate has made to this point. Whenever you decide this cellphone up you’ll be able to inform immediately that it’s made with premium-grade supplies.

The brand new handset has a extra rounded design than earlier iterations, which suggests it sits comfortably in your palm. It’s additionally the thinnest cellphone but from OnePlus at 7.25mm – virtually as skinny because the iPhone 7, which is 7.1mm

It feels mild within the hand – it weighs 153g to be exact – however not so mild that you just really feel like it could blow away in a forceful gust of wind.

OnePlus is speaking up the location of the antenna bands right here. In line with a spokesperson the colour has been particularly designed to attempt to disguise the antenna bands for an unspoiled full-metal look, and while you do spot them they don't detract from the design of the cellphone.

On the right-hand fringe of the cellphone sits the ability button, with nothing else to interrupt the clear traces. The left edge options the toggle for silent mode, in addition to the amount rocker.

The inclusion of the silent change is an intriguing one. It's one thing OnePlus has included on each cellphone for the reason that OnePlus 2, and it's nonetheless the one main Android cellphone participant to take action. 

Apple is the one different producer that has continued with the silent change, however its inclusion on the OnePlus 5 is welcome. It makes it tremendous simple to make the handset cinema, assembly and bedtime prepared, and we like that.

There’s just one speaker driver, and that sits on the backside of the cellphone, subsequent to the USB-C port and three.5mm headphone jack… sure, regardless of all of the rumors OnePlus has determined to retain the legacy headphone know-how for the OnePlus 5.

No awkward dongles required right here (we're you Apple, HTC and Moto), however Bluetooth can also be on board in case you fancy going wire-free.

OnePlus can also be making an attempt to promote us on what it calls the ‘Horizon Line’, the thought right here being that half of the cellphone is forged in shadow whereas the opposite is in mild. We're struggling to get on board with this, but it surely’s additionally simple to see that it is a beautiful-looking cellphone that feels elegant in use.

One shortcoming by way of the design of the OnePlus 5 is that it’s not waterproof. A OnePlus spokesperson confirmed to TechRadar that it might survive a drop of rain if you should use it outdoors, but it surely’s not IP-rated, and received’t survive a dunk just like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Sony Xperia XZ or iPhone 7 will.

The OnePlus 5 is barely out there in two colours, and these are tied to the storage/RAM choices. The 64GB/6GB model is available in Slate Grey, whereas the dearer 128GB/8GB mannequin is available in Midnight Black. 

So in case you’re fussy in regards to the coloration you need then you’ll be able to’t be fussy in regards to the energy and storage you get underneath the hood, and vice versa.


  • 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display screen appears nice
  • Makes for a show with 401 pixels-per-inch

The large headline display-wise is that OnePlus hasn’t determined to improve to a QHD decision display screen for the OnePlus 5 in any respect. Nope, not a sausage.

Which means you get the identical 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED show from the OnePlus 3T, and it’s a little laborious to not be dissatisfied by that contemplating the rise in worth of the handset this 12 months.

After all, OnePlus wants to chop a few corners to maintain its price ticket competitively under its rivals, and to be honest the display screen is among the only a few locations the place it's determined to make a saving.

The excellent news is that the display screen on the OnePlus 5 nonetheless appears stunning. It’s a disgrace the corporate hasn’t opted for the next decision, however at 401 pixels per inch it appears nice while you’re watching video, and because it’s AMOLED, blacks and different darkish tones look nice.

Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 tech can also be current to make sure you’re getting a completely protected display screen, and to push back scratches.

Interface and reliability

  • Android 7.1.1 onbaord, ought to be upgraded to Android O
  • OnePlus's overlay feels unobtrusive and helpful

You’ll hear the time period OxygenOS used when referring to OnePlus telephones – that is the corporate’s personal overlay that sits on high of the Android working system. 

The OnePlus 5 is operating the newest model of OxygenOS on the time of launch, which relies on Android Nougat 7.1.1 – the latest model of Google's working system.

Which means all of the options rolled out by Google for Android 7 – for instance, split-screen apps or the power to change your lock display screen wallpaper – are right here, alongside just a few upgrades from OnePlus.

OnePlus has confirmed that it’s going to deliver the Android O replace to the OnePlus 5, and after it dedicated to bringing the brand new software program to the older three and 3T before the end of 2017, we anticipate the identical timescale for this cellphone.

Of the businesses that embrace an overlay on their telephones, OnePlus takes a less-is-more strategy to upgrading its skins, claiming to solely add one thing when it’s completely essential to enhance the Android expertise.

Whenever you boot up the OnePlus 5 you’ll admire the dearth of bloatware, with solely the OnePlus Group app included on this cellphone. You possibly can swipe up from the underside of the house display screen to open the app drawer, which is now barely opaque, so that you don’t really feel such as you’re leaving the house display screen.

All the apps are clear and easy to establish, with all of them utilizing their very own logos, slightly than the reskinned variations that overlays akin to Samsung’s TouchWiz or Huawei’s Emotion UI use.

What we actually like although is the power to tug down the notification bar by dragging down anyplace on the house display screen – which suggests no extra stretching your finger to the highest of the tall show to view your alerts.

It doesn't work in apps – the power to have the ability to scroll the web page up and down is slightly necessary – however we made use of it loads from the house display screen.

Every part simply works on the OnePlus UI, and also you’ll discover it a gorgeous cellphone to make use of and easy to navigate in case you’re used to Android gadgets. Should you’re switching from an iPhone you could wrestle a bit of, but it surely shouldn’t be a troublesome adjustment course of.

That is what the OnePlus 5 Group app appears like.

Studying Mode is maybe the most effective improve to OxygenOS, and it’s one thing no different model of Android gives in the mean time. You possibly can configure sure apps to enter this mode, which filters out blue mild and makes use of greyscale mapping to make studying simpler in your eyes. 

This has been proven to make it extra snug to learn, and it’s much like the modes you’ll discover on Kindle merchandise and different ereaders. We used it inside the Amazon Kindle app, and it actually does make it loads simpler to learn for lengthy durations of time.

It’s significantly helpful because it’ll mechanically begin up when you’re utilizing the app, so that you received’t have to show it on manually.

Different new options on the OnePlus 5 embrace expanded screenshots, which lets you drag down a web page to seize a full screenshot, slightly than simply what you’ll be able to see on the display screen.

OnePlus additionally means that you can customise the vibrations of your cellphone, so you’ll be able to select precisely how refined or in any other case notifications really feel. There’s now a password-protected part within the information app, and there’s a Do Not Disturb mode for gaming that turns off notifications when you’re taking part in cell titles.

It’s additionally price noting how lengthy OnePlus is prone to proceed supporting this gadget. If it’s any indication, the OnePlus 2 received’t be receiving Android 7 software program, and that gadget was launched in the course of 2015; that’s lower than two years OS help for the OnePlus 2, and it could be one thing price taking into account if you’d like a cellphone that will likely be supported for so long as potential.

Music, motion pictures and gaming

  • Headphone jack means that you can use wired headsets
  • Tremendous-bright, high-res show gives good display screen for video
  • Gaming is a pleasure because of the top-notch energy

The very first thing to notice right here is that you just’ll have the ability to use a wired three.5mm headphone jack with the OnePlus 5, in contrast to on some current gadgets such because the HTC U11, Moto Z and even the iPhone 7.

That will likely be welcome information for a lot of, and it’s one thing of a shock that OnePlus saved the headphone jack for this gadget, as many rumors advised it might be misplaced. We additionally used Bluetooth headsets with the cellphone, and the connection remained steady always.

Audio high quality is crisp on this cellphone, but it surely isn’t something significantly outstanding. The audio system on the OnePlus 5 are a bit of missing in comparison with among the different choices available on the market, and it’s fairly simple to dam them together with your fingers whereas holding the cellphone.

We’d wish to have seen OnePlus embrace some front-facing audio system right here for while you’re watching video, however so long as you watch the place you place your fingers you received’t be significantly dissatisfied with the audio high quality right here.

Video on the OnePlus 5 appears good, though it received’t be as superbly crisp as on the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 or HTC U11, because the decision isn’t as excessive as on these telephones.

Full HD nonetheless fits the OnePlus although, and a super-bright AMOLED panel makes watching video pleasing on the OnePlus 5. It’s additionally price declaring that this show has the standard four:three facet ratio most of us are accustomed to, whereas another flagship gadgets are choosing a extra widescreen really feel.

OnePlus hasn’t included a lot bloatware for watching video right here – you'll have the ability to watch your individual movies by way of the gallery by default, and there’s additionally YouTube and Google Play Films in case you’re a extra devoted shopper of video and films.

Gaming on the OnePlus 5 is a cultured and pleasing expertise, because of the spectacular energy of the Adreno 540 graphics processor.

OnePlus hasn’t put any video games on the cellphone for you, however these are simple to obtain from the Google Play Retailer, and we tried out titles akin to QuizUp, Actual Racing three and Pokemon Go.

All of those labored slickly, and graphically intensive video games look nearly as good as you’d hope for on this gadget. It’s clear that OnePlus has achieved some spectacular issues with the processing energy of its newest handset.

Benchmarks and efficiency

  • Newest Snapdragon 835 chipset with both 6GB or 8GB of RAM
  • Highest benchmark scores, however questions raised

OnePlus has managed to pack within the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-a-chip right here, which we’ve seen within the HTC U11, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and a few variations of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

That is processing energy on the high of its recreation. Whether or not you’ll discover the distinction between last-generation processing energy and what’s within the OnePlus 5 every day stays to be seen, however make no mistake: it is a very highly effective cellphone

Any recreation you wish to run on this gadget will work easily, and most significantly quick. We ran some demanding apps, together with, as talked about, Actual Racing three, and the OnePlus 5 dealt with them with ease.

Relying on what mannequin you purchase you’ll both get 6GB or 8GB of RAM. For this evaluation we’ve solely used the 8GB model, however we reckon 6GB ought to be greater than sufficient RAM to energy your cellphone.

Most smartphones in the mean time pack 4GB of RAM, and obtain related benchmarking scores to this cellphone. So, turning to these all-important benchmarking scores, how does the OnePlus 5 evaluate to the competitors?

In Geekbench four benchmarking we discovered the OnePlus 5 to be the quickest cellphone we’ve examined, with a mean multi-core rating of 6716. The Galaxy S8 Plus with an Exynos processor scored 6630, and that very same cellphone utilizing the Snapdragon 835 bought a rating of round 6000.

The Exynos-powered S8 Plus was beforehand our quickest cellphone on this planet, though it's laborious to see a distinction in real-world velocity between the brand new OnePlus and Samsung’s flagship gadget. OnePlus has beforehand struggled with optimizing its processor for top-notch efficiency, however plainly with the OnePlus 5 it’s lastly managed to do it.

Whether or not that 8GB of RAM is the factor serving to, we don’t truly know. It does nonetheless really feel like 8GB is overkill for this type of gadget, however we’ve but to see whether or not the 6GB model of the OnePlus 5 performs anyplace close to as nicely.

There are experiences although that the OnePlus 5 is cheating benchmarking tests to supply inflated outcomes. We've approached OnePlus for remark and can replace this evaluation as soon as the allegations have been cleared up.

Battery life

  • three,300mAh battery plus larger optimization offers strong battery life
  • Can final round a day with auto brightness on

Battery life is among the few areas the place a flagship cellphone can stand out from its rivals in 2017, and the OnePlus 5 wants to have the ability to survive no less than a full day on a single cost.

On paper, in comparison with the OnePlus 3T the OnePlus 5 appears like a downgrade, with the previous sporting a three,400mAh battery whereas the latter incorporates a three,300mAh battery.

The processing tech used inside this cellphone is newer although, and way more environment friendly by way of energy consumption, and we expect you’ll discover that in day after day battery life.

The OnePlus 5 will maintain tempo with numerous the gadgets you’ll discover available on the market at present. We usually discovered it lasting us the complete day, perhaps dying at round 10pm with laborious use.

For sooner or later we used the cellphone with the brightness cranked as much as full and it died round eight:30pm, which wasn’t ok. We then tried auto brightness, which was loads higher – in case you keep on with auto brightness you’re much more prone to make it to the tip of the day with some cost left within the tank.

Throughout our battery take a look at, the place we flip the display screen as much as full brightness and play a 90-minute Full HD video clip, the OnePlus 5 solely misplaced 12% of its cost. That's barely higher than the OnePlus 3T, which misplaced 13%, and noticeably higher than the Samsung Galaxy S8, which misplaced 19%.

There’s fast-charging tech right here – OnePlus’s model is named Sprint Cost – which suggests you’ll have the ability to pump some juice into your cellphone in a short time if you should. OnePlus continues to assert that it's quick sufficient to get you a full cost within the time it takes you to get a bathe, however that’s not strictly true.

Except you're taking an extended and enjoyable bubble bathtub, you’ll possible solely get sufficient cost for just a few hours – but it surely’s actually higher than your cellphone dying on you while you want it.

For these occasions while you actually are gasping for battery life the OnePlus 5 additionally comes with a battery-saving mode; we discovered that this actually restricted what apps we may open, however it’s going to extend battery life on the cellphone and that’s all you want while you’re clinging onto the final dregs of energy.

OnePlus isn’t providing the most effective battery life available on the market right here, but it surely’s an identical degree to many of the flagship competitors, and until you’re an influence person you’ll most likely get by way of an entire day of utilizing the OnePlus 5 and nonetheless have a bit of leftover earlier than you plug in in a single day.


  • First OnePlus cellphone to characteristic a dual-lens digicam
  • 16MP + 20MP lens on rear supply lossless zoom characteristic
  • 16MP front-facing digicam

Maybe OnePlus’s crowning glory, the digicam has been by way of numerous enhancements for the OnePlus 5. OnePlus has been criticized previously for its lack of innovation on this space, and it’s now delivered a dual-lens sensor.

The 2 sensors that comprise the rear digicam are made by Sony. The first digicam is 16MP, and there’s additionally a 20MP telephoto lens.

The primary digicam lens has a super-wide aperture of f/1.7, which ensures that photographs are vibrant with out being overexposed. The telephoto lens then has an aperture of f/2.6.

In contrast to on the Huawei P10, nonetheless, the place one of many sensors is monochrome for improved distinction, the 2 coloration sensors listed below are designed to supply improved zoom efficiency, enabling you to zoom in on topics with minimal lack of picture high quality.

Throughout our testing we discovered this to work very nicely, and in case you’ve at all times been dissatisfied with the zoom in your cellphone digicam you’ll possible be pleasantly stunned by what the OnePlus 5 is ready to do right here.

That mentioned, it’s not going to provide the identical degree of zoom high quality as a DSLR, and it’s not going to revolutionize the way in which cellphone cameras work – but it surely’s a really helpful characteristic to have while you wish to shoot objects which can be far-off.

The OnePlus 5 rear digicam additionally comes with a Portrait mode, which lets you get stunning pictures of individuals utilizing the two-lens setup. It means you’ll be able to place your topic within the foreground of the picture after which blur out the background, full with enticing 'bokeh' results.

That is particularly helpful while you’re taking pictures of individuals, however you need to use it on objects as nicely. It means that you can create some fascinating results, however you’ll be able to’t make as many tweaks to the picture after you’ve taken it as you’ll be able to on the Huawei P10.

On Huawei’s gadget you’ll be able to regulate which areas are out and in of focus after you’ve taken the picture, however right here you’ve bought to attend for the digicam to focus, and there’s no altering the focus later. That’s a little bit of a disgrace, however in case you get it proper the primary time you received’t be dissatisfied with the Portrait Mode.

Should you’re a digicam fan, there’s additionally the Professional mode on the OnePlus 5, the place you’ll be able to deep dive into the digicam settings. This lets you mess around with the main focus, white steadiness, ISO and way more.

That is the UI for Professional Mode on the OnePlus 5

There’s additionally a helpful spirit level-like characteristic inside Professional mode, which shows a inexperienced line to ensure you’re conserving your photographs straight – we discovered it a helpful characteristic when taking pictures topics akin to structure.

That is solely out there in Professional mode although, so that you received’t have the ability to mix the extent characteristic with Portrait mode, though it's much less important for folks pictures.

As on earlier OnePlus telephones you can even shoot in uncooked with the OnePlus 5, permitting you to tweak your photographs additional while you add them to your laptop.

Swipe left within the digicam UI and also you’ll be greeted with video recording on the OnePlus 5. You’ve bought 4 high quality choices right here: 720p, 1080p, 1080p at 60 frames per second or 4K video recording.

4K video received’t be helpful to you until you might have a 4K gadget on which to play the movies you shoot, however the different three modes work nicely, enabling you to file video that appears nearly as good as that from most different flagship telephones available on the market at present.

It's price noting that at the moment the OnePlus 5 doesn't supply any video stabilization for 4K video recording, however firm co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that this will likely be dropped at the handset by way of a software program replace.

There are additionally time-lapse, gradual movement and panorama modes, which all do precisely what they are saying and work with comparatively little fuss.

We did discover a quirk with the OnePlus 5 although, because it appeared to cease saving movies after taking pictures the primary few. We tried resetting the cellphone, however the identical factor occurred – after the primary few movies, the OnePlus 5 refused to save lots of any extra.

The OnePlus 5 we had in for evaluation was operating closing software program, so we hope this bug will get mounted rapidly with an replace.

On the entrance of the OnePlus 5 is a 16MP selfie shooter. A number of the options of the rear digicam can be found right here, though you received’t have the ability to use the Portrait mode.

This cellphone will likely be able to supplying you with among the sharpest selfie pictures available on the market, and it might probably additionally file video in 1080p, which is an enormous profit in case you plan to file your face usually.
