First impression: OnePlus 5 hits a sweet spot between pricing and hardware

OnePlus OnePlus 5 Thursday launched in India a price of Rs 32,999 for the memory of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and Rs 37,999 to 88 GB of RAM and 128 GB version of storage.

The fifth iteration of the OnePlus, a same Chinese version known for the emblematic phones, remains the most expensive. However, since the price is still quite a lot cheaper than the popular flagship phones – the iPhone and Samsung 7 S8 – the OnePlus 5 will continue to appeal to its loyal customers.

The phone will also be an attractive proposition for a lot of Android users who want to spend the price of 15,000 to 20,000 rupees for something more valuable. With the mass market, Xiaomi virtually ignored the premium segment in India and other brands such as Huawei and Motorola will not be aggressively competed for high-quality space, OnePlus 5 could be indisputable in the price range below Rs 38,000.

One of the main reasons why OnePlus is popular is that it has achieved a good place between price and equipment. The main draw OnePlus 5 is the high-end equipment that rivals most phones. The latest device comes with Snapdragon 835 processor with a RAM up to 8 GB, which makes it an upgrade device on the front of the technology.

Inspired by the iPhone 7 Plus OnePlus launched for the first time a phone with two cameras. The OnePlus 5 has a double 16 megapixel (MP) MP camera over 20, which, according to the company, is even better than the iPhone 7 Plus camera. In addition, features such as punch load and all-metal monocoque design, a fast fingerprint scanner and dual SIM slots (no memory expansion slot) make a complete hardware package. The screen remains FullHD 1080p 5.5 inches with only a small improvement over the previous generation. On the software front, OnePlus comes with its own operating system with underlying 7.1.1 Turron Oxygen. The operating system is similar to the base Android operating system with minor improvisations. It would be interesting to see if the company has managed to reduce the errors such as the latency of tones that affected the previous versions.

The OnePlus 5 is ergonomic superior, facilitating the realization despite its large screen. The look back and side phone is attractive and it even has a similar iPhone 7 Plus. The backward glance is not much in previous models.
