OnePlus continues its tradition to offer most value for money in a smartphone. It brings literally the best processor and the most amount of RAM in a smartphone to a price point which others have not yet been able to match. We get a dual lens camera system, which still needs work, but at least its there. The design is elegant and sleek and even though it has some resemblance to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus around the camera module, the phone’s 7.25mm thin profile is just impressive.

We really enjoyed the company of the OnePlus 5, feeling like we had a phone that was just designed to withstand any kind of abuse a user might through its way. By this, we obviously mean abuse in terms of apps installed and running on the phone at any given time. We do not recommend physically abusing the phone as it neither has dust resistance and neither can it tolerate liquids. For a smartphone that aims to be a flagship killer and checks off so many of the right boxes, this one missing feature really left us very disappointed. An IPX rating is now just a standard feature for flagships devices and for OnePlus to skip it AGAIN is just down right frustrating.

Overall, the OnePlus 5 continues to impress with its solid all round performance and design, and we would highly recommend this smartphone to anyone who is in the market for a phone that is reliable and doesn’t cut corners on performance. This is also a phone which, if well cared for, could easily last you two to three years of use, seeing as how this reviewer is still happily using his OnePlus 2.
