OnePlus 5: 7 things that would've made it better

It's here, folks — the OnePlus 5 has been unveiled and officially launched. Almost anyone who's into smartphones has heard of the company — the relatively young brand that split away from Oppo some 3 years ago and has since become famous for two things: affordable flagship-grade smartphones and sometimes questionable guerilla marketing tactics.

Last year, the OnePlus 3 really upped the manufacturer's overall game, with an ergonomic fully metallic body, a very notable camera improvement, and top-notch hardware. Of course, keeping with the OnePlus trend, its price was a fraction of the cost of a big-name flagship phone, too.

So, now, we have the new “flagship killer”. Since the number 4 is said to be bad luck, OnePlus skipped it and called the new handset OnePlus 5. It looks awesome, sure, and you can read all about it in the articles linked below. But we have a few gripes with the new metallic beast and would like to share them. Here goes:
