The OnePlus 5 is slim, light, and fast. The phone’s octo-core Snapdragon 835 processor is the same one featured in the new Samsung Galaxy S8, and the dual camera design features both a 16-megapixel Sony sensor and a 20-megapixel Sony telephoto camera that enables a bokeh-tastic portrait mode. The iPhone 7 Plus offers 12-megapixels for its portrait mode which also uses two lenses and some software tricks to add the illusion of depth of field. (OnePlus claims its new setup is “the highest resolution dual camera system available on any smartphone.”) You also get up to 8-gigabytes of RAM and 128-gigabytes of storage with a OnePlus 5. The display is gorgeous. The ceramic fingerprint sensor on the front is terrifically fast. The 3,300 mAh battery can drink up a day’s charge in 30 minutes. It’s a really nice phone!

 has skipped its numbering order, so don’t expect a OnePlus 4. This is thought to be partly due to the number four being consider an unlucky number by some East Asian nations. More importantly, the OnePlus 5 is pitched below the asking prices of flagship phones from Samsung and Apple, coming in at £449.
This is still a £50 increase on its previous device, meaning OnePlus would have to live up to its marketing hype and build something special
