OnePlus 5 is on-fire since last few days and recent leaks where it looks like rip-off of iPhone because of it’s dual camera and antenna bands. In real life this phone looks more like other Chinese phone than iPhone, sides of this phone are designed rounded that makes it easy to hold.

Price and display of OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5 starts at $479 for the base model, which is $165 less than the base iPhone 7 and $240 less than the base Galaxy S8. It comes in two colors dark-grey and black with 1080p Full HD AMOLED display which is crisp, sharp and visually stunning and you will not feel to have higher resolution. Having higher resolution utilizes more battery so 1080P and resultant display of this phone is great combination.

In almost every respect, this phone is more of a classic smartphone compared with the feature-laden smartphones from Samsung, LG, or Apple. That’s because this phone doesn’t have most of the fancy new features from the latest premium models.

Here’s a list of what the OnePlus 5 doesn’t have compared with the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8:

Ultra-narrow borders (Galaxy S8)
Rounded display corners (Galaxy S8)
Curved-edge display (Galaxy S8)
A display with a higher resolution than 1080p (Galaxy S8)
A display with an 18:9 aspect ratio (Galaxy S8)
Water resistance (Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7)
An invisible home button (Galaxy S8)
Wireless charging (Galaxy S8)
Iris scanning (Galaxy S8)
Facial recognition (Galaxy S8)

And yet, even though the OnePlus 5 is missing all those features, I never felt I was using an outdated phone. If you are not looking for any of those features i don’t hesitate to recommend this and this phone also comes with 3.5mm headphone jack and its Dash charging works wonderful, Dash charging is something similar to fast charging without
With the this phone you’re not paying as much for the latest flagships from Apple, LG, or Samsung either.

It lets you switch your phone to silent or vibrate mode without having to wake your phone’s screen. OnePlus phones are still the only Android phones that let you do this.
