OnePlus 5 Review

Odd right? The last OnePlus phone was the OnePlus 3T. So why not OnePlus 4 now? Well, it's because of tetraphobia. Because of that, many Chinese products avoid the number 4 similar to the OnePlus 5. You can think of the OnePlus 3T as the 4, though, if you want.

The OnePlus 5 is now powered by the new Snapdragon 835 chipset which is currently available in most of the flagships. What is not however, available nowadays is the massive 8 GB of RAM (no other smartphone packs such high memory) matched by 128 GB of internal storage that comes with the pricier $528 model. With the entry level OnePlus 5, you get 6 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. The storage, however, is not expandable.
