2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality, and well crafted design
  • Hits a sweet spot in terms of weight and heft, and feels comfortable to hold
  • Fingerprint reader on the back is fast and accurate, and as a bonus you can use it to slide down notifications on the screen
  • The front-facing camera is excellent, too - it has a wide enough lens to fit a lot of faces in each frame, and it softens skin tones enough to look appealing without appearing too airbrushed
  • Beautiful display
  • The first device to feature Android 7.1 which brings in a few new features like launcher shortcuts (Google's take on Apple's 3D Touch)
  • Coming directly from Google, regular Android updates are ensured - something that other Android flagships can't match
  • The key differentiator though is the built-in Google Assistant - the search giant's new, thoroughly robust voice-and-search service - it's the most powerful and natural voice assistant yet (beating Apple's Siri and Microsoft' Cortana) and uses machine learning and Google's vast search database to answer all kinds of questions you throw its way - think of it as Google Now evolved
  • Smooth, slick performance, even with graphics-intensive games, backed by top-of-the-line hardware (matching other Android flagships in benchmarks, though falling a little behind the iPhone 7 which is the fastest phone right now)
  • Fantastic camera - rivaling the already great camera of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus - the camera is fast, images are in focus, colors look vibrant, and landscape scenes retain an impressive amount of detail and depth, even with objects that are far away
  • Low light performance is especially good
  • The camera can shoot 4K video, and though it doesn't have optical image stabilization, it uses a combination of the gyroscope and software to steady your videos which works pretty well
  • Good call quality
  • Nice, clear, balanced loudspeaker (though it's not stereo, which would have been great)
  • Supports fast charging technology (though it's not as fast as some of the other flagships)
  • It can also schedule reminders, look up facts and places to eat, set alarms, give directions, translate phrases and more
  • Good battery life - survives a solid work day with medium to heavy usage - on the whole it does better than the iPhone 7, LG G5, HTC 10 and Motorola Moto Z, but is behind the Samsung Galaxy S7
  • 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]
  • Although the phone has some basic dust and water resistance, it can't quite handle a dunking like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and Samsung's 2016 flagships
  • Sunlight legibility of the display is average
  • The camera's lens blur feature to get artsy background blurs on portrait shots doesn't work as well as that on the iPhone 7 Plus
  • For a flagship phone, the design is, on the whole, uninspiring (although this is subjective)
  • 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
