OnePlus 5 camera review


 

The OnePlus 5 is the Chinese manufacturer’s flagship smartphone, replacing last year’s OnePlus 3T. The new model is the first OnePlus to feature a dual-camera setup and offers some enticing imaging specifications: a main camera with a 1/2.8″ 16MP Sony IMX 398 sensor and fast F1.7 aperture is supported by a 2x tele-module featuring a 20MP 1/2.8″ Sony IMX 350 sensor and F2.6 aperture.

The dual-camera design allows for an iPhone 8 Plus-like background-blurring portrait mode and the Smart Capture feature combines optical zoom with multi-
frame technology for improved zoom quality. The OnePlus 5 camera also comes with 4K video, a 720p/120 fps slow-motion mode and a dual-LED flash. The camera app’s new Pro mode provides manual control over the most important shooting parameters and DNG Raw capture.

The OnePlus 5 uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 flagship chipset. Offering 8GB RAM/128GB or 6GB RAM/64GB memory options and a 3300mAh battery that supports the OnePlus Dash Charge quick charging system, the rest of the device’s specifications are firmly top-shelf as well.
