Too bad the camera still blurs faces... What about macro and closeups?
I returned my OP5 because of these issues on the camera and was excited to hear the OP5T would have a new lens.. but looking at the samples i don't see much improvement.

I mean how expensive can it be to put a small IR emitter there, they way all phones had one a few years back. Why do the manufacturers feel that urgent need to remove it all of a sudden? I mean, did home electronics suddenly lost their IR remote control functions during those few years thus rendering this feature absolutely useless? Yeah right.

"On a positive note, there's a headphone jack - we'll be advocating for those to our dying breath."

Words of wisdom and the best line from the article.

Wondering if it makes sense to upgrade to it from S7 Edge?

Wouldn't hold my breath for its camera performance or battery endurance

Not an upgrade to 5, but a better choice among smartphones

That is weird about the dual cameras. Mistake maybe? With Oneplus' track record I wouldn't be surprised. That setup makes no sense whatsoever.

Anonymous, 17 Nov 2017Still no SD card slot...SD Card storage is slower than internal memory. Instead of offering one storage option with SD option like Samsung and LG, they did the right thing and offered a higher, premium internal storage option.

They are never going to opt for external storage. Sorry.

When these companies will understand that consumers know more megapixels doesn't mean better quality. Sony's sensors are the best in the business, but they suck because they refuse to lower the megapixels count. If they want to have better shots, just add a monochrome sensor like Nokia or Huawei do. It does give you better shots with huge dynamic range.

Anyways, I think this phone is just OnePlus trying to be in 2017, there's no reason to upgrade the 5. I know that phone didn't sell well, but they can give people a better OnePlus 6 if they focused their efforts for a whole year instead of six months. I really feel sorry for anyone who bought the 5. Plus, it doesn't ship with Oreo. Which means that OnePlus can upgrade it to Android P and stop, even though this phone comes in the end of 2017. It's really a shame when heavy skinned phones like the Huawei Mate 10 (which was announced a month before the 5T) ship with Oreo out-of the box and lightly skinned phones like the 5T ship with N.

I hope OnePlus don't fu** up in 2018 like they did this year. And also, can someone tell the YouTubers that this is not a small company anymore. For God's sake I'm tired of this excuse.

camera has lots of potential. i'm not so much a fan of the dual cam but if it makes low-light shots look more than decent, that'll be a great boon. i'd prefer that to telephoto or wide-angle lenses actually.

Rafe Firmani, 17 Nov 2017Just looking at the pixel size of camera specs I know this OP5T ... moreI don't know about that. Huawei phones have pretty good low light capabilities and their pixel size is not 1.4. I have the P10 Plus and I can tell you it takes better low light shots than my friend's S8+. Maybe it's the monochrome + RGB sensors approch. But my phone takes pretty damn good LL shots.

Interesting would be their answer or better the excuse to the question: Why have you chosen that configuration of cameras so little useful with all the options that are possible when the phone will have two cameras?

The only answer that I found is because it's used in the Oppo R11 $$$. Which is not good.

Interesting Camera specs....
