The OnePlus 5 has got a dual camera system with a secondary telephoto lens that can take portrait pictures with blurred backgrounds. Yep, just like the iPhone 7 Plus.
But this does not mean that the actual quality of the images is the same.
That is why to best understand the performance of a camera, we turn to... pictures taken with it. The OnePlus 5 has got a 16-megapixel main Sony sensor with an f/1.7 aperture lens, and the telephoto one features a 20-megapixel Sony sensor with an f/2.6 lens. Here are the official camera samples.
The images look great. OnePlus says it applies some clever machine learning to know what type of a picture you are taking and the phone will then apply proper editing to enhance its looks. We would say that the images even have a bit of a film vibe going on.

While the first set of pictures were the official samples taken by OnePlus itself, here are a few pictures taken in real-life situations. The amount of detail is truly impressive, don't you think?
