CAMERA:

All the hype from OnePlus in the run-up to this launch has surrounded the camera. The tagline ‘Dual Camera. Clearer Photos’ is plastered across the box, plus all of the marketing materials, but does it really improve on an already great camera in the OnePlus 3T?

One Plus 5 is company’s first smartphone that comes with dual lens set-up. No doubt it’s a great camera compared to previous flagship devices.

  • If you’ve always been disappointed with the zoom on your phone camera you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised by what the OnePlus 5 is able to do
  • Rear Camera comes with Portrait mode which allows to blur the background and brings out a beautiful picture
  • PRO mode available where you adjust ISO, shutter speed, and Aperture as per your need
  • A feature like a spirit level helps you to take perfectly horizontal photos
  • Time lapse, slow motion, and panorama modes available
  • As on previous OnePlus phones, you can also shoot in raw with the OnePlus 5, allowing you to tweak your photos further when you upload them to your computer.

WHY BUY OnePlus 5?

  • Ample RAM, faster processor
  • Cameras take superb picture
  • Good battery life
  • Much Cheaper than iPhone 7 Plus
