OnePlus 5 vs OnePlus 3T: What are the expected differences?

Excellent, attractive, complete – these are just some of the superlatives which many reviewers used to describe the OnePlus 3 and 3T when the two smartphones premiered last year. The Chinese manufacturer really managed to live up to its "Never Settle" motto in 2016, bringing handsets that looked, felt, and performed like high-end flagships, while costing less than $500 at the same time.

Taking all of this into account, it's only natural that expectations for the company's next phone are sky-high. As evidenced by the recent spike in rumors and teases from official sources, the OnePlus 5 will likely be announced in the coming weeks, and although we're yet to see an actual, semi-credible image of the device, the information spilled up to this point can give us a notion of what to expect.

Still, only 6 months have passed since the release of the OnePlus 3T, so how much new stuff can the company actually cram into the OnePlus 5 in order to make it a viable purchase?

Below, we've gathered all the features with which the OnePlus 5 is supposed to one-up (pun intended) the OnePlus 3T. Keep in mind that this is mostly based on speculations, but we'll make sure to update the article as soon as we receive official information. Let's dig in!

I think iPhone 7 Plus-like implementation would be much better.

Makes sense.

I'd argue it really needs some water protection. Folks get all pissed when the flagships don't include it....why should OnePlus get a pass? If Moto G5 Plus can add some minimal protection for $230, no reason OP can't for $400 to $500.

Well, Motorola definitely isn't OnePlus. So, just because Moto can add some protection to the G5 and sell it for $230 doesn't mean OnePlus can afford to do so. They have a very different budget, after allm

Does the Moto G5+ even offer all the other flagship specs of theOnePlus 3T? Not to talk of the OnePlus 4/5...

You shouldn't have ordered 3T in the first place.

That was a stupid move.

I think Oneplus should diversify the size of their phones, and not just release the same tweaked 5.5" phone every 6 months.

Meh, still nothing compelling enough for me to upgrade my OnePlus One to another OnePlus device...patiently waiting for the Note 8.

1. Higher price
2. Faster processor (not needed)
3. More megapixels in the camera (not needed)
4. Tighter, brighter display (not needed)
5. Slightly larger battery (Needed)
6. Still no support for removable SD Card (needed for a lot of users)
