As the live event happens and we start to turn our attention to the new, shiny Oppo OnePlus 4 5 and we begin to longing to get hold of one to review for you lovely readers. Until we do manage to get our hands on one. Here are some video reviews you may enjoy about the new device.

Ernest Doku, who is the mobiles expert at uSwitch.com, tells us..


OnePlus has excelled as a best-kept secret in smartphone circles, steadily gaining street cred from its invite-only initial release to exclusives with tastemakers and influencers.

With the OnePlus 5, everything from features to form suggests a shot at flagship dominance – albeit this time with a price point to match.

The vital stats suggests no compromise. Its sleek design would easily pass the ‘pub test’ and with a dual-lens camera as seen in the LG G6 and Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, all signs point to a phone trying to gain dominance through style and photography credentials.

Hi-end specs without the hi-end price it seems. Indeed, it has a 5.5″ AMOLED screen at 1080 x 1920 pixels (~401 ppi), the Oxygen / Android 7.1.1 OS and the Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 CPU. This processor will see you ticking along with octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo) power. There’s either a 64GB storage / 6GB RAM option or a 128GB storage and 8GB RAM option, but no microSD card.

Around back, a dual camera – one 16 megapixel f/1.7 and a 20 megapixel f/2.6 with phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom and dual LED flash. Up front 16 megapixel shooter.

Other specs include a 3.5mm audio port, WiFi, DLNA, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, USB-C connector and fast charging.
