OnePlus has brought out it’s latest device to thwart the big boys of Samsung, Sony and Apple

It looks great

The original flagship killer is back with, well, another flagship killer. After weeks of leaks and rumors, OnePlus has released its sixth handset, the OnePlus 5, and it has the major Android players in its sights: the LG G6, Galaxy S8, and HTC U11.

And it looks to be a formidable competitor. With a sleeker design, bigger battery, faster chip, and better camera, the OnePlus 5 is poised to be the breakout star of the Android flagship season, even with a slightly higher price tag

It has moved the camera to the upper-left corner like the iPhone rather than keeping it centered, and the antenna lines remain, meaning the back is made of aluminum and not glass.
