OnePlus 5 review: 10 key takeaways

The OnePlus 5 is a nearly $500 phone that shoots for the stars... the stars being Apple's iPhones and Samsung's Galaxies.

It offers a dual camera system, the fastest performing chip on Android, and an... interesting new design.

In many ways, this latest OnePlus 5 is an evolution over the OnePlus 3T and the 3: it does not make any tectonic shifts to the software experience, or anything else, but slowly builds up upon a successful formula. We've lived with the phone for a couple of weeks now and we have the detailed review here. If you want a short and easier-to-digest slideshow summing up all that you should know about the OnePlus 5, though, look right above.
