OnePlus 5 has been designed to target today’s style-conscious lot with comfort to hold, easy to fit into pocket and lightweight, as per an FE Bureau report. The 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED screen looks great. It comes with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 tech to ensure the users get a screen that’s protected from any scratches. Also, at 401 pixels per inch, it gives a visual treat to users when they watch videos on YouTube. Furthermore, the camera is the crowning glory in the device. There is a high-resolution dual-camera system present in OnePlus 5; a tailor-made 16 MP sensor is supported by a 20 MP sensor with a telephoto lens to accurately determine the distance between the sensor and objects in the environment. A large f/1.7 aperture allows for faster snaps and helps compensate for stuttering to improve image stabilization. There is also the Pro mode on the OnePlus 5 that allows users to set focus, white balance, ISO and much more, said the report.
