In our review, we said OnePlus 5 is arguably the best Android phone you can buy. We liked the dual camera settings, especially when clicking photos where the subject is clear — like a face or a flower. Even if you don’t use the dual camera, the results are great in good light. OnePlus 5 has a really cool temperament and does not heat up whatever you do with it, which is great for a flagship.
