2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 33+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Top-notch build quality, with the ergonomics, handling, and aesthetics of a true high-end premium device
  • The design is aesthetic but nothing original, or distinctive

Display

  • Good AMOLED display with great color rendition, and an excellent in-built Kindle-like "reading mode"
  • The phone's display is pretty good but doesn't pack the same punch as the (admittedly higher priced) premium Android flagships

Software

  • 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

  • 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
  • The 8GB of included RAM is simply astounding, and unmatched by any other phone till date - making the phone as future-proof as is possible - although any differences in real-life performance relative to the 6GB version may be hard to notice at present

Camera

  • 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
  • Videos shot are also pretty decent (although it misses out on video stabilisation, which was present in the OnePlus 3/3T)
  • 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

Audio

  • Good loudspeaker - improving significantly over the OnePlus 3/3T

Battery

  • 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

More

  • 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
