OnePlus 5 ramps up smartphone battle
Tech Tools: Multitasking with fast charging from €499
OnePlus was the manufacturer that really upped expectations when it came to affordable Android phones. The company has just put its OnePlus 5 handset on sale, the latest in the OnePlus line. It comes with a dual camera for taking portrait shots, a wide f/1.7 aperture and 4K video. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 8gb of RAM and 128gb of on-board storage at the top end of the spec. The display is 5.5 inches – not the biggest out there but more than enough to do everything, from work to entertainment. Fast charging means you can get a day’s power in 30 minutes, and OnePlus’s technology will give your most-used apps priority to launch them more quickly, while also preventing other apps from draining the battery or hitting performance.
