Sample from One Plus 5:

The dual camera has some modes which will interest the crowd most.

  • Portrait Mode: 

    Dual camera technology lets you focus on your subject, progressively blurring the background for a gentle, yet powerful effect.

  • Smart Capture: 

    The intelligent software can automatically detect various conditions and quietly optimizes for accuracy and clarity. It’s professional quality, automated.

  • Pro mode: 

    A new Pro Mode lets you fine-tune settings like ISO, shutter speed, and more. Use the histogram, grid lines, and level features to take better photos, then capture RAW photos for professional-grade post production.


The outstanding feature that this Camera setup possesses are:

  • Effortless Clarity: 

    The OnePlus 5 features the highest resolution dual camera on the planet. Photos are incredibly clear, so don’t be afraid to zoom in.

  • Faster Autofocus (Fast AF): 

    The dual camera system and intelligent software work together to measure depth and find the perfect focus, instantly. Focusing is 40% faster than the OnePlus 3T.

  • Large Aperture: 

    Capture clear photos at any time, thanks to the OnePlus 5’s large f/1.7 aperture. Shutter speed is faster too.

DASH Charge:


One Plus 5 has an enormous juice packed in it which is 3300 mAh. But if it runs out no user have to worry due to its DASH charge. DASH charging system is the fastest in the flagship market. Faster than the likes of Samsung, Apple, etc.  DASH Charge produces a larger electric current rather than increasing pressure for stable, consistent charging speeds. Other quick charging technologies heat up your phone, leading to slowed charging speeds and poor performance. With DASH Charge, your OnePlus 5 stays cool, and charging doesn’t slow down.


OxygenOS is the best OS that can be used on top of Android. Due to its use in One Plus 5, we can see the following features:

  • Android Refined: OxygenOS gives the smooth, minimalistic & refined feeling.
  • Reading Mode: The flexibility of a smartphone with the comfort of an e-reader. Reading Mode optimizes the display for reading through gray-scale mapping and filtering of blue light. This mode can be toggled on and off manually, or you can set your favorite reading apps to automatically open in reading mode. Easy.
  • Gaming DND Mode: When you want to focus on a game or other app, toggle on our new DND Mode to mute notifications and temporarily disable softkeys to avoid accidental taps.
  • Secure Box: Secure private documents, photos, and videos with your fingerprint or a 6-digit pin. Files in the Secure Box are encrypted and hidden from the phone storage for added privacy.


It is very obvious to expect the best performance from One Plus 5 as it uses industry-leading Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It cruises with the most demanding games and apps. Its new architecture makes it much more energy efficient than other smartphones in the market.

  • More RAM: Open more apps and switch between them instantly. With up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, day to day tasks are snappier than ever, and battery life is better.
  • Faster storage: You’ll have plenty of room for photos, apps, and files with up to 128GB of onboard storage. And because the OnePlus 5 features new dual-lane technology, overall performance is faster.
  • App Priority: The exclusive technology intelligently learns your usage patterns to launch important apps more quickly. It also keeps intrusive apps from harming performance or draining the battery.



  • One Phone, Everywhere: The OnePlus 5 is a true world phone, including support for 34 network bands across the globe.
  • Dual SIM: Insert two SIM cards and connect to two networks simultaneously. Whether you’re traveling or relies on the need of using two phone numbers, it just makes sense.
  • Carrier-unlocked: It’s your phone – use it how you want to. The OnePlus 5 comes carrier unlocked, so switching networks is as simple as swapping SIM cards.

Miscellaneous Feature:
