2-minute Review [Positives]
  • The design follows on from the previous generation of iPhones - with the same excellent build quality, Apple's famed attention to detail, and beautiful aesthetics - in fact, the phone looks almost identical to the previous generation of the iPhone
  • Splash, and water resistant
  • Excellent, large display, improving a bit over the previous iPhones with a "wide color gamut" screen and enhanced color accuracy
  • iOS 10 is excellent and now makes more sense out of 3D Touch, enhances the lock screen and allows third-party integration with Siri and Maps
  • Of course, iOS also has an industry-leading software update program - you are guaranteed to get all iOS updates in the next few years as soon as they are out
  • Phenomenal, top-tier performance backed by the new A10 chip, beating Samsung's flagship phones for instance by a significant margin in benchmark tests (although in practical terms, you might only notice the speed on some intensive games and the video and photo-editing apps)
  • Also adds extra RAM on top of the iPhone 7 setup (3GB vs 2GB) making it more future-proof
  • Excellent front and rear cameras - this is Apple's best camera phone to date, and pushes the envelope to offer great results
  • The camera is a also a step up over the iPhone 7, with a dual rear camera setup delivering a true 2x optical zoom, and with an exceptional bokeh mode to come via a forthcoming upgrade
  • The front-facing FaceTime camera has been bumped to 7 megapixels now, and it looked great for selfies or videos
  • Enhanced (louder, and now stereo) speakers
  • Good audio quality
  • Very good call quality
  • Very good battery life - lasts an hour longer than the previous iPhones 6S Plus
  • Much improved haptics with Apple's updated "Taptic Engine"
  • Top-notch build quality, with the ergonomics, handling, and aesthetics of a true high-end premium device
  • Continues to have the very handy mute switch, in the tradition of earlier OnePlus phones
  • Good AMOLED display with great color rendition, and an excellent in-built Kindle-like "reading mode"
  • OxygenOS continues to be an excellent blend of stock Android and light but useful touches in all the right places - it is, without doubt, one of the best Android UIs around
  • Performance is blazing fast all round - matching and sometimes even beating other Snapdragon 835 powerhouses like the Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium - and not just in benchmarks, but in real-life use
  • Very good dual camera setup - giving arguably the best camera phone in this price bracket - overall it's pleasing color rendering and good dynamic range - the portrait mode is pretty nice too - overall the camera is fast and reliable - and a small improvement over the OnePlus 3/3T in terms of quality
  • Videos shot are also pretty decent (although it misses out on video stabilisation, which was present in the OnePlus 3/3T)
  • Good loudspeaker - improving significantly over the OnePlus 3/3T
  • Very solid battery life - offering a significant improvement over the already very good OnePlus 3T in real life use
  • OnePlus's proprietary dash charging technology continues to provide industry leading fast charging speeds, and continues to work even when you are using your phone
  • On the whole, leaving aside the camera, which is good but not comparable to the best in business, the OP5 matches other premium flagships in all other areas - and delivers this at a fraction of the price - continuing OnePlus's tradition of offering great performance at excellent value for money
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • No big changes in design from the last two iPhone versions
  • The design is starting to show its age, as competing phones squeeze a 5.5-inch screen into smaller, sexier bodies
  • The Jet black version is a fingerprint and scratch magnet (so, use it with a case)
  • The new click-free home button takes getting used to because there's no mechanical click when you press the home button
  • The missing standard (3.5mm) headphone jack on the phone means that you won't be able to easily use your regular earphones with the iPhone now (though compatible EarPods come included in the case, as well as a Lightning-to-regular-headphone adapter dongle)
  • Lacks fast charging support (which is now present on most of the Android flagships)
  • On the whole, while there are significant changes from last year's iPhone 6S Plus, but they may not be thrilling enough to warrant an upgrade
  • The design is aesthetic but nothing original, or distinctive
  • The phone's display is pretty good but doesn't pack the same punch as the (admittedly higher priced) premium Android flagships
  • The camera is again excellent for the price, and an improvement over the OnePlus 3/3T, but doesn't match up to the level of the premium flagships like the Galaxy S8, the Google Pixel, the HTC U11, and iPhone 7 & 7 Plus
