    When I first saw the launching and unveiling video, I checked if its live, and it is! but as if i already watch it before and nothing new as if I already memorized it those guys only confirms it, as bland as the presentation so the specs. I also love the part when they call it a design or appropriately should I call a "cut and paste design". Good that I have my 3t for me it is their true best creation yet, the way i see it OP5 is just an optimization of its predecessor so never ever cut your support on 3/3t.

    At one point this was absolutely true Oneplus Definitely gave you bang for your buck but not so much recently.....2016 the Zte Axon 7 was the better phone at the same price if they would just get the software together there would be no comparison...Axon 7 had the better screen, better speakers, same processor and had a 6gb version for $450 so I would wait for the Axon 8......Also I just purchased the Galaxy s8+ because there was a sale and only paid $60 more then the oneplus 5 and the regular galaxy s8 was on sale for $424 thats cheaper then the Oneplus 5 so which one would you rather have

    Also most of reviewers are saying camera is some sort of average expecially portrait mode. And one big surprise is there no ois in neither of the camera. But main cam have eis.

    I have an S8+ and you're right, it is about the only phone that is different from everything else. LG G6 is about the only other phone that is close to the S8. It's more than just design and screen for me though. While the S8 is very gorgeous, I'm not a huge fan of the edge screen and the aspect ratio is too werid when most of the apps don'r support it yet

    f*uck uhd 2k and 4k on mobile...

    Full HD is still the best, VR is just a gadget and useless, if this is your argument, take an Vive or Occulus ...

    Not so much 'OnePlus 5'...

    more 'OnePlus 3T 2: Oppo R11 Edition'

    It'll be a great phone for customers new to OnePlus, but definitely not an upgrade for existing 3T or even 3 customers.

    Shame about the screen and a too many compromises with the dual camera setup. Feels like they'd of been better off focusing on the single camera and making that as great as possible rather than follow the pack with a dual cameras and ending up with an average camera setup.

    Nobody, I mean nobody needs 2k on a mobile device.
    • 2k Displays (or the like) are more expensive compared to same size Full HD Displays. This would mean that the OP5 would be more expensive.
    • Displaying content in a higher resolution results in a more utilized CPU and GPU. In the end we have a slower performance and running time. This could only be counterbalanced by a stronger battery = higher price.
    The effective use of a higher res display is doubtful. At least physically.

    So glad I didn't wait for this phone. I shopped around and got the Sony XZ Premium for £600 from Very.co.uk on pre-order. That's only £80 more than the Oneplus 5. This is what that £80 got me... True 4K HDR screen (which believe you me, is absolutely incredible, especially in VR when you have 4K content), waterproofing, ability to expand storage by a further 256 GB, adaptive charging (meaning the phone has learned when I go to bed and wake up and staggers the charge to be ready for the time I wake up as to not damage the battery), front facing stereo speakers, 960 FPS super slow motion video, the best phone camera on the market (front and back), a free £100 Sony Bluetooth speaker, native support for PlayStation controllers and the ability to stream from a PS4. Come on people, it's a no brainer. I can't see One plus surviving this. It's just an extremely expensive 1080p phone.

    For what reason do you need a QHD display? You already cant see the pixels with the fullHD display.
    A QHD only drains battery and the cpu/gpu have a heavier load. Unless you are interested in VR, you are better off with a fullHD display in every possible way.

    OP5 has a pixel density of 401 ppi, even Apple thinks its not necessary, so they build a fullHD diplay into the iPhone 7 Plus...

    I priotize battery life over pixel density!
