The OnePlus 5 – Details Matter

    At OnePlus, we build products hand in hand with our users. We bring this approach to every element of our products, including our software. Through our Beta program, we work daily with our community testers to make the user experience with OxygenOS seamlessly smooth. We may not implement every single suggestion we get, but we do listen to every suggestion in an effort to find the best way to improve. Our process of capturing and evaluating user feedback takes time and resources, but we believe it helps us create better products.

    Our users are those who want the best smartphone experience. The amazing part about our community is that we're held to the highest standards, even on the smallest details that many won't notice. We can't wait to show you the OnePlus 5 and all the areas we've improved it based on your feedback.

    I wanted to share one such example today. We got quite a bit of feedback from OnePlus 3 and 3T users saying they wish they could capture higher quality audio in noisy settings like concerts. So on the OnePlus 5, we made it a priority to improve audio recording.

    We brought in some new hardware and assigned a group of engineers to optimize the audio system of the OnePlus 5 to capture much clearer sound. As a result, the OnePlus 5’s improved microphone performs significantly better in loud environments. Whether you're an audiophile or not, we think you'll appreciate the difference. To illustrate the difference, we took the OnePlus 3 and a OnePlus 5 from our final testing phase to a night club. Check out the difference for yourself.

    Your opinion helps us to continuously improve and work towards our mission of sharing the best technology with the world. Thank you for caring. Together, let's keep creating great technology.

    Never Settle.

    What about the feedback of the rest of your customers? Any chance you can also address that feedback as well?

    Also, OP3 and OP3T might not like this part, since, after all, they thought they were helping improving their own devices, not other people's future ones.

    Nice to see you could find your way back to the forum. :p :D ;)

    And those improvements sure looks promising. Users always complained about that sound part in concerts. :)

    I'm well aware. But before, Carl was actually here to interact with us. But since his Letters to Community, he's avoiding the Forums at all costs.

    So OP is now pandering to those snowflakes who want to record at concerts to the annoyance of the artists. I DO hope APPLE brings out their technology that blocks this!.

    Just enjoy and experience the moment instead of trying to capture something you most likely never going to listen to.

    Fantastic updates to the camera and microphone quality so far, Carl! We can really see that you guys are pushing for an uber update to the widely popular 3T by hitting those 3T complaints.

    Going to disagree about this. You do not announce price point before you reveal features. The art of selling is found by presenting a reason to buy the product before you announce the price, because then you will value the product on its quality and not so much its price point. Name any other time where someone has intentionally announce a product's price before the announcement of the product.
