Used one plus 3 earlier and loved it .. however Life turned horrible with this one plus 5 phone.
1. Automatically mute button switches ON during the call, highly irritating and unpleasant experience.
2. My WhatsApp stopped working since I started using this phone. Tried all means by checking service provider, data connection etc to figure out the reason but everything seems fine and looks like this unusual problem is persisting in the instrument..
I have a OnePlus-3. It was and is my first android phone. Had iPhones before that. It took me 2-3 seconds to fall in Love with Android and OnePlus. I am not a Fan-Boy, but one Plus seem really fair to me....Price/Performance.
Looks like a great phone. If the android side of things keeps these coming I might just have to switch back. Although the only androids I've ever used are that galaxy phones and I have noticed they're lightning fast at first, and after a year or two they slow down more and more :(. Can't comment on whether or not that happens with other devices.
Dang, shot down after being exited for so long.
I have the note5 and if there is one thing I have learned from it, is that I need my SD card.
I've been so excited about the OnePlus5 and I was planning on getting it, but with no SD card slot Its 100% a no go. :-(
Darn, thought I had found a winner.
I'm moving from my Nexus 6P to the OnePlus 5. Good review but the cons are just no issue at all IMO. I don't know why anyone complains about no sd card slots in this day and age of cloud storage. An SD card does you no good of you lose your phone or it gets stolen. Get Google Photos and Play Music guys. Problem solved. And the front fingerprint scanner is a great feature. Can't wait to see how my new OnePlus 5 treats me as time goes on.
I don't get the point when it comes to the design.
I mean : me, and most people, will put that expensive shit in a protective shell, oftenly for less than 10€. Kind of a minor factor to me.
Also, i'd like to see the feedback on durability for the previous phones of the same brand. How is an Iphone is ageing compared to an Honor or a 1+. I don't see that getting put in perspective when tech reviwer are comparing different smartphones of the same generation.
It all comes down to pixel 2 or mate 10. Samsung is crap their phones slow down drastically after 2 years. Apple's has battery and firmware issues as well after a few years goes by. Htc is way out of the picture i'm not going back to that company who does nothing innovative. Lg is just a bad company for smartphones they make awesome appliances but their firmware is a fucking nightmare in any generation phone they come out with. So all that's left is really the tech giant himself google and Huawei who has been stepping up their game producing flagship killer smartphones i mean my huawei honor 8 takes pictures on par with the new iphone and slightly less good then samsungs new flagship. Trust me i compared them all for long extensive hours. Mate 10 vs pixel 2 which is the king? pixel 2 scored the highest of all smartphones in their camera benchmarks a score of 98!!!!
I JUST FOUND OUT ONEPLUS HAS BEEN SPYING ON EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER, COLLECTING DATA AND STORING IT TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT. GOOGLE AND APPLE DO IT BUT THEY AT LEAST ADMIT, THESE GUYS DONT TELL YOU. SHAME ON THEM.
No phone is perfect but OnePlus 5 is as close as it gets. I have the 8gb RAM 128GB storage version and I have had no problems. The phone is extremely fast and powerful. Besides, you can't really beat this phones durability. IT FELL FROM 3RD FLOOR HITTING 7 MARBLE STAIRSTEPS AND DID NOT BREAK WTF DEMONS DEMONS
