Oh, man has the OnePlus 5 received a lot of hate. From benchmark cheating, all the way to sub-par camera performances that have led the public to call DxOMark’s credibility into question, OnePlus’ latest flagship hasn’t had the smoothest of launches.
But, while it’s easy to get caught up with all the hate, all the rage, and all the feelings of dissatisfaction surrounding this smartphone, a lot of people tend to forget one really, really important thing about this new flagship:
It’s a damn good smartphone.
OnePlus aims to step up its photography game with the OnePlus 5 and they have partnered with DxO for assistance in camera optimisation. Surprisingly, during its official launch, there was no mention of such partnership which by right it should be a big deal if they want to shout about photography.
That’s quite a contrast compared to HTC as they have boasted having the highest score on DxOMark Mobile during its HTC U11 unveiling. Finally, after several weeks after its launch, DxoMark has finally released its evaluation for the OnePlus 5 with a score of 87. That puts in on par with the Huawei P10, Sony Xperia XZ and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
Official distributor Brightstar Malaysia has announced that the OnePlus 5 will be finally hitting our shores on Saturday, 8 July onwards. This is the fastest release yet and Malaysians can get the OnePlus 5 in less than 3 weeks after its global announcement.
The OnePlus 5 is officially coming to Malaysia and now you can secure your unit before it goes on sale next week. Not only it comes with official warranty, it is also significantly cheaper than the import sets that were offered earlier.
Raya is just around the corner and there’s no better way to keep your family connected than Celcom’s FIRST plans with GBshare. If not everyone has a 4G LTE smartphone, Celcom is also offering the widest range of devices for your entire family.
UPDATE: OnePlus 5 official Malaysian sets are now available for pre-order.
That was fast! After the OnePlus 5 was announced a few days ago, official distributor Brightstar has announced that the new OnePlus 5 is coming to Malaysia very soon. This is probably the fastest roll out of a OnePlus product in Malaysia so far.
The OnePlus 5 features a dual-camera system which works similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom. You have the main 16MP f/1.7 shooter that takes normal shots and a secondary 20MP f/2.6 camera with a telephoto lens.
UPDATE: OnePlus 5 units with official Brightstar Malaysia warranty are coming soon.
Just one day after the OnePlus 5 was launched internationally, you can already place your pre-orders for this brand new flagship device here in Malaysia. It will cost you a pretty penny, though.
OK, so you might have heard that a certain Chinese smartphone company called OnePlus just unveiled their brand new flagship smartphone called the OnePlus 5. It’s got a monster spec sheet including geek-gasm inducing words like “Snapdragon 835”, “128GB of UFS2.1 storage” and “8GB of LPDDR4X RAM” which looks great in a brochure.
Unfortunately, by now, you might also have heard that this very company has been accused of cheating on synthetic benchmark tests by rigging their device to “maximise performance” during certain benchmarks. This obviously caused an uproar because this isn’t the first time OnePlus had been caught red handed.
But my question is: How much does this matter to you the end consumer?
The OnePlus 5 is finally official and it continues to offer top end specs at a lower price point. If you settle on not having the latest, you can now own last year’s OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T with a significant discount.
