Choose the OnePlus 5 as your next phone at Amazon India and bring home the latest in smartphone technology.


The Good The OnePlus 5 is affordable and super fast, with an 18-hour battery. Its camera takes great portraits and low-light shots.

The Bad It costs more than any previous model, its design isn’t anything special and it doesn’t have expandable storage.

The Bottom Line The OnePlus 5 is outstanding, especially for the price; no other phone gives you the same bang for the buck.


The OnePlus 5 takes excellent low-light pictures, better even than the pricier Pixel at times. That’s due to a combination of better processing technology from OnePlus and a slightly wider aperture (f1.7 versus f2.0 on the Pixel), which lets in more light. And in photography, light is everything. Many of the OnePlus’ photos were clearer and sharper (with less digital artifacting) than the Pixel. White balance was also more accurate, since the Pixel gave off a slight greenish hue with some of my dark, indoor shooting.
