OnePlus 5 Review

I got a chance to test the camera of the one plus 5 yesterday. My friend took a shot from the where the window was in my work place. Evening time, no flash and only natural light on to the subject... Though the face was at extreme right but the camera auto-focused on it with ease and made the distant objects blurred. This is what i liked so much... very easy to use no adjustment needed and its just a magnificent output at the end.

This is awesome DSLR-effect and i haven't seen such high quality smartphone camera before... Though I haven't tested the iphone 7 plus which I have heard is pretty good as well.

After sometime I also tested the front camera - which also took sharp pictures and the auto-focus worked on multiple faces as well. 

A big thumbs-up for overall camera - back and front. 

Ok now let me get into the other features of the camera... just my initial impressions only as I am not getting into detailed analysis.

First of all the phone felt very premium in my hand. It was comfortable. The apps opened very fast. No lagging. 

Then i listened to a few songs in you tube @1080p with my v-moda headphone (using the 3.5 mm headphone jack) and was pretty impressed with the sound quality. 

However the phone display was something I wasn't very happy with. Not that the display is bad but the kind of displays you get in iphones or samsung phones - i found that missing. Ofcourse this phone is much cheaper. But then I think phone displays are too important to ignore because most of the time you are looking into the screen, isn't it? So, that's the only drawback I found...

Overall I would give 7.5 out of 10.
