The OnePlus 5 is Official

The OnePlus 5 is now official. For the third year now, OnePlus has set out to become a “Flagship Killer” with awesome state of the art specs at lower than flagship prices. It’s been a somewhat rocky three years being that the inaugural year had a great phone with a not so great launch, they left some arguably necessary specs off the second phone, and the third phone was replaced by the fourth phone within a few short months.
Carl Pei (CEO) claims that this year, it’s all lessons learned taken into account to build the OnePlus 5. And although they pack a punch, the specs are not the star of the show. Here is a run down of the OnePlus 5 spec list:

What’d I tell ya? Looks pretty good, right? I’ve ordered one to unbox and review for you. You can too. Today (6/20/2017) you can order with code “Clearer Photos” at, but act fast, it’s limited and once those early birds take all the early worms, you got to wait until June 27, 2017.
