Week 186: We Bundle up, get Marked, and Unbox

    Chris dB, Jul 8, 2017 :
    This week, we’re talking about a few awesome new bundles available in our store, earn our photography spurs, and cast a spotlight on the artistry of our community. We’ve got a lot to cover this week, so let’s dig in.

    Ding Ding!
    If the OnePlus 5 were a boxer, it’d compete in the welterweight division. It’s lean, nimble and packs one hell of a punch, both in the hardware as well as the software department. Any boxer will tell you that the right equipment can make the difference between an embarrassing TKO and a Championship Belt. So, unless you want your new device seeing Flipping Double (Order Bundle), get it Ready For Action (Order Bundle) now. You need to Protect Yo’ Self (Order Bundle), and go Bulletproof (Order Bundle) before things go Bump in the Night (Order Bundle). Go grab ‘em, champ.

    On Your Mark
    We spent month after month sweating away on the development of our new Dual Camera, so to hear DxO call the OnePlus 5 a ‘serious shooter’ is tremendously rewarding. It vindicates much of the hard work we’ve poured into its development. The OnePlus 5’s final DxOMark? 87! For the full scoop, check out their full review of our best camera now.

    New in Town
    With the launch of the OnePlus 5, we were extremely excited to welcome a lot of new faces to the OnePlus family. One of these is JohanFreak, who wrote a detailed report of his experiences during the first week with his OnePlus 5. Read up on his thoughts on Reddit now! We’re always excited to read your reviews and your impressions of our devices. If you’d like to share your opinion on any one of our products, or have some food for thought stored up, just drop ‘em in the comments below.

    Drawing Carl
    We’re often amazed by the OnePlus-inspired projects you guys share with us. Few have made our jaws hit the floor quite as loudly as @LightningXIII ’s stunning drawn portrait of @Carl . Kudos on the incredible work. The minute we laid eyes on this stunning drawing, we knew we had to feature it. Take a look in her thread now! Please respect the artist when commenting on her work, and refrain from sharing hurtful or disrespectful comments.

    In Review
    As one of the professional photographers behind our amazing gallery of OnePlus 5 sample photos, Alessandro Michelazzi has been pushing the OnePlus 5 to its limits for a while now. Based on his experiences, he’s cooked up an in-depth review on the photography capabilities of our latest flagship. This review by a professional photographer is an absolute must-read.

    The Name is 5. OnePlus 5.
    We could tell you about Fabio’s fabulous OnePlus 5 unboxing, or we could just show it to you. No spoilers.

    Instagram spotlight: @valentina_procopio88
    When we launched this year’s edition of the Lab, we invited the best smartphone photographers to compete for a place on our Lab squad. Valentina was one of the overwhelming winners, and a shoo-in for our all-star team of reviewers. Since then, she’s taken her OnePlus 5 to Instagram to show off her best work. Check out her gallery now!

    The Future is Now
    We had a special guest from Sweden this week! Marcus Anzengruber, a premier evangelist for Augmented and Virtual Reality stopped by HQ for a chat on the future. He blew our minds with his stunning demos. In between accidentally whacking @Carl , and talking about the future of AR/VR (Hint: Battery life), his visit made for a memorable afternoon indeed. Do you think VR and AR will shape the future of tech? Let us know.


    That’ll be all for this week, friends! Thank you for reading. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m back to gorging myself on delicacies and perhaps purloining a glass of wine at our company-wide happy hour (We’ve got a lot to celebrate). We’ll be back next week with an all-new Weekly Update. See you then!

    @Chris dB have you traded in your OnePlus 3 yet ?
    I heard they're running one helluva trade deal if you're ready to buy that new iPhone lookalike with the super awesome jelly like effects.

    That's a cool drawing of @Carl

    EDIT: Just watched the unboxing video. He just unboxed the box it came in, not the phone box. It also contained copyrighted content from some TV show.

    EDIT: All links to bundles are HK specific. Please use generic links.

    I have to say... this unboxing video is better than that yelling dude with yellow lambo j8kVjQx.png

    Send this unboxing spoiler below to that dude who is carrying jelly with lambo at the end of video.


    # Thanks for update.

    EDIT: congrats @LightningXIII you are on news now.:):D

    Thanks for a new update @chris dB¡¡¡¡¡ ;)

    As always loaded with good news, very interesting links to photographers of whom I still learn a lot, and a very nice video of Fabio.

    The drawings of @Carl made by @LightningXIII are a real wonder.

    With great desire to shorten the delivery time of OnePlus 5 to be able to get one with me as soon as possible.

    To enjoy the happy tour.

    Never Settle :)

    No , I do not think VR/AR will shape the future of 'MY' tech , that may be useful for upcoming generations. Besides if someone is using a Oneplus 5 they will end up doing handstands.:rolleyes: :p

    Anywhoo , Thanks for your weekly update.

    I guess we have to wait for @Baymax to get the real news......as usual.

    @LightningXIII it's great to see how your drawing skills evolve, choice of subject is another matter :p
