Recently launched OnePlus 5 is one of the best value premium Android phone in comparison with other brands. Until now, you only had two shades of black to pick from.
Now OnePlus is finally giving customers more options with the addition of a limited edition gold-colored version that is more vibrant.
The new “Soft Gold” version of the OnePlus 5 comes in the same anodized aluminium colour the OnePlus 3 and 3T came in. But you don’t want to sit on your buying decision for too long because OnePlus says the gold version, which is priced the same as the entry-level OnePlus 5 (₹30758.99/$479/£449/€499), will only be sold in limited quantities until supply runs out.
New color aside, the phone is technically identical to the Slate Gray model, which comes with 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. You’re out of luck if you want the gold with the Midnight Black’s 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
Even with the smaller storage and RAM configurations, the OnePlus 5 still flies and easily competes with more expensive Android phones like Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and LG’s G6.
The 5.5-inch AMOLED display is bright, vivid, and crisp. Battery life is excellent, lasting up to a day and a half. Android Nougat with OnePlus’s OxygenOS customizations add instead of subtract from the experience.
