Will you buy the OnePlus 5?

In about a week, the OnePlus 5 will officially be launched. It's expected to be one of the most popular phones this year so we wanted to ask you, right here right now: based on all the rumors and everything you know so far about the OnePlus 5, would you buy it?

If you're one of our regular readers, you might already know that we keep our OnePlus 5 rumors article up to date as the rumors and leaks come in - and boy have these been coming in thick and fast these past few weeks. Some of our editors have been rather disappointed in OnePlus from the leaked images; they'd been hoping OnePlus would be more creative and more original with its 2017 flagship. Despite this, rumors are still rumors and while some are more 'certain' than others, they essentially all remain speculation until the big day.

There's one thing we have to hand to OnePlus though, they're not slackers. Snapdragon 835 processor, 8 GB RAM, at least 64 GB of internal memory... There probably won't be much you can't do with this device. It's a serious contender against the Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and other top phones already out.

We should also bear in mind that the performance isn't the only thing it's got. Apparently, OnePlus isn't working alone on the camera on its latest smartphone: it seems that it's turned to the well-known company DxO for a helping hand. Although we haven't yet seen anything concrete in terms of camera (a dual camera is rumored), we can expect something decent given the reputation of OnePlus' new friend. Those who are familiar with previous devices will be pleased to know that the microphone quality (and thus quality of recordings) is expected to be miles above its predecessors on the OnePlus 5.

Certain rumors hint at a QHD screen, others suggest a screen more in line with predecessors - meaning Full-HD. And last but not least, the battery life is expected to be around 3,300 mAh, which is 100 mAh less than its predecessors, but what will this actually be like, bearing in mind software optimizations?

Are these rumors enough to convince you?

  • Not impressed.
    No buy.

  • Now that the OnePlus 5 is out, I'm actually considering buying one. Unfortunately in Europe the price is higher than in the USA: starts at €499 (=$556) vs. $479. Look-wise, to me it seems like a Huawei P10 Plus, but with a better UI (almost stock) and beefed-up specs, even though I appreciate the B&W camera (or the LG's wide-angle) more than the teleshit they've put in the OP5 just to mimic the Apple's approach. That said, I'm waiting for in-depth, real-users reviews before buying ;-)

  • OnePlus2 owner here, screw you OnePlus, lying about support for product. Crappy customer support for earbuds that died in 6 months. And did I mention Carl lying about product support? My son's $150 Nextbit Robin has Nougat by the way, and they don't even make phones anymore. Hey Carl, bite me. Waiting for Razer to come out with their new phone. If they don't who cares, I would never give this bunch my money again. Why would anyone give this company money with this record of terrible customer support is crazy.

    I so agree with Mr Storm.. Although I'm more then happy with my one plus X, I'm so disappointed in one plus the company. Never buy one plus anything anymore!

  • Price is a big selling pointing for OnePlus. Unfortunately here in old Europe the prices for OnePlus' devices is almost on par with other companies' flagships. Or at least hundreds of $ more than what the price is in the US and Asia.

  • if the reported design remors are true, I don't want to be seen out there with an iPhone 7+ rip-off

    With their history of poor QA, bad support and service,basic engineering gaffes, security stupidity, benchmark cheats, poor standards adherence and more, then why would I support such a company and product?

  • After the promised update to the one plus 2 which they failed at, I don't think so. Plus they made that announcement 2 weeks before the release of the op5! No thanks!

  • If they had CDMA compatibility, it would be a day one purchase for me, but, since they do not, I'm forced into the "no" crowd, unfortunately.

    I don't get to try out a device that I would like to, and they don't make a sale. Oh, well.

  • Only if it still got a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
