The OnePlus 5 shows audio recording superiority over OnePlus 3 in a new video


With the OnePlus 5 just around the corner, it is hardly a surprise that new details about it pop up every day. Yesterday we took our first look at the new phone, and today, we learn that we can expect improvements in the audio recording capabilities of the OnePlus 5

Heeding the feedback of OnePlus 3 and 3T users who wished for better audio capturing in noisy environments, the OnePlus guys are outfitting the OnePlus 5 with microphones of a higher grade. In fact, here's a clear example of the difference between audio recordings from the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 5:



Sounds like quite an improvement, right? Тhe OnePlus 5 is not the only handset with beyond-average audio recording capabilities, though. The Galaxy S8 and the LG V20 are also among the smartphones with microphones created to capture sound in loud environments without any of that crackling distortion.

And of course, the new microphone system is not going to be the sole improvement in the OnePlus 5. In terms of hardware, the new phone is also expected to sport a more powerful system chip, the Snapdragon 835, as well as 25% faster Dash charging, a dual-camera system, and maybe even 8GB of RAM

By the way, keep in mind that the footage from the second half of the above video may not have been recorded with the OnePlus 5. The forum post below does not state clearly if that's the case.

There is no single option out there that's better than OP5 for price ~$500. S835, Superior Dual cam (16MP sensor behind a bright f/1.7 aperture is the backbone of the system, aided by a telephoto (2x magnification) 20MP camera (f/2.6). They use Sony IMX398 and IMX350 sensors respectively) , 6-8 gb ram, 64-128 gb internal, One of the Fastest fingerprint sensor out there, great AQ just like OP3T(was rated amongst the Top 5 of 2016) , Latest Android, stock like with nifty customizations, and a more than respectable 3300mAh battery for 5.5" screen. Now tell me a single phone that even comes close. You must be high when making that comment

@Abhid.. you seem to know everything about this phone including the sensor model numbers and its battery capacity even before any official announcement of any kind. . You must be having a boner for this Chinese garbage . Instead of spending 550 on this s**t , its much better to spend another 200$ and get true flagship products , not flags**t cheap junkyard phones which looks like poor mans iPhone 7+. No thanks ....Overpriced Chinese junk. Specs always sound good on paper , Quality of components are s**t in Oneplus .

u must be high on drug @Phonehex quality of components has always been top notch for OP. this is not your typical Samsung for God's sake. we'll gladly spend 500-600 on OP anyday rather than your imaginary crappy flagship.

OnePlus 3 and 3T were the best performing Android phones of 2016 you dumb China hating moron. Never lagged, never slowed down, fastest in updates. Just because you have personal issues with Chinese phones don't just talk trash without any f**kin logic. And your f**kin true flagships cost at least $300 more and yet offer half the storage and half the ram. Now go get a boner looking at your true flagships and give birth to an "Android"

Yes , good phones with piss poor battery life , avg camera , avg display and pathetic customer service. I still have my oneplus 3 and its at best an avg phone. Earpiece quality , signal strength , app crashing are just few of the problems. Oneplus is not your friend to give to top of line everything and not cut corners at mid range price bracket. If you can try the S7 edge , similar price bracket , blows the OP3T away in everything.

Finally a phone catching up with the old Nokia 808. Or even Nokia N86 of 8 years ago, 2009. Pretty lame because of iPhone trend promoting simplicity we had retrograde of basics features as mic quality, radio FM and what else.

Wtf. The rest of my comment was edited or something. I said "The Galaxy S8 and the LG V20 are also among the smartphones with microphones created to capture sound in loud environments without any of that crackling distortion." ^^ The HTC U11 as well. I also said that, it would have made more sense to compare it to the OnePlus 3T since t improved on video with EIS 2.0. But then again, maybe that's a double-edged sword, and they feel like it would anger OnePlus 3T owners.

Long before them was NOKIA with HAAC system. Try recorded sound on 930 or 808. Even the video quality of 930 may be better.

Doesnt dash charge, 3,300, 8gig ram, dual camera, stock android (with features) stand for anything?

Ignore them...it's their personal choice...no one is stopping you to get that beast. Some people never want to change.

Ill buy a One Plus 5 over an LG, HTC, Apple product even if One Plus was more expensive. Coming from a One Plus 3t owner. This thing runs amazing. At the time I bought my One Plus. There were used options that were cheaper. The V20, Iphone 7, Galaxy S7, etc... I still chose the One Plus and I don't regret it one bit. I've used them all and I had a chance to use an S8. I like the S8, but I wouldn't pay hundreds of dollars more for it. If the One Plus 5 is hundreds less. I'll probably get a One Plus 5. I really do think this phone is an amazing phone and I've had a lot of them.
