OnePlus 5 does not have any problems with regards to the included microphone and speaker, as they are really functional. Not so much if what we want is to hear the sound through the speaker, which is neither stereo nor heard as best.
It is interesting to comment that the sound output is of quality, when connecting good headphones. Compared to OnePlus 3T, we have more clarity and power, something that curiously decreased quality in those models with respect to OnePlus 2.
The autonomy of OnePlus 5 is good but it is no reference, as it does not beat records. We are facing the typical terminal where we can endure a day without undue problems. So you do not ask for more, especially if you do enough conversations; anyone looking for a phone that lasts two days, has to look at things with higher mAh.
Sometimes getting carried away by the specifications is not the right thing, so this phone has less mAh capacity than OnePlus 3T does not mean that it has less autonomy. It is what I discovered in the first week of use and now I can confirm it.
OnePlus 5 is a good example of the evolution of the chipsets as they need less battery for a better autonomy. The keys to achieving this are two i.e. Snapdragon that spends less and a Full HD screen which is a very affordable resolution for that chipset.
Speaking of pure and hard numbers, we can have the phone browsing Wi-Fi for ten hours to spend the battery, spend 20 hours on 3G calls, or watch video for 18 hours.
You can also use battery saver to reduce the brightness, vibration, location and power to a fair level that does not disturb, and consumes significantly less energy.
Simple & Updated Software
In this period of time, I have had a couple of significant updates, and with them I gained stability in the system and have been correcting things that had been detected like the malfunction of automatic brightness in some units.
I have not had a problem, but they tell us from OnePlus that Wi-Fi connection has to work better, also that in voice calls the quality has been improved. My assessment of the software is very positive, first to be created in a way that respects fairly basic Android, secondly, for quite frequent updates.
After making a lot of photos now I’m certain that the camera of OnePlus 5 is better from the general point of view. The main camera has less noise and software does not soften them so much. The cameras offer more appeal by presenting more brightness and contrast and tend to be warmer in color.
