OnePlus 5 is the best, cheapest premium phone
The wait is finally over.
After announcing the phone last week, OnePlus is now openly selling its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5, online. No waiting in line in front of a pop-up shop, no invite-only promotions (though the company did away with that methodology years ago).
The phone will be available in North America (United States and Canada), Asia (China, Hong Kong and India) and several countries in Europe. It starts at $479, £449 and €499. (The phone won’t be sold directly to Australian customers, but that converts to about AU$750). The OnePlus 5 also supports GSM networks. In the US, that means it will work with AT&T and T-Mobile. It will not be compatible on CDMA networks like Verizon and Sprint .
