Similar to the OnePlus 3/3T, the OnePlus 5 also has support for gestures.
However, with the OnePlus 5, it has gone a notch higher and has added several new gestures which can also be customized as per your choice.
Q16. Are the capacitive keys backlit in the OnePlus 5?
Yes, just like the previous version, the OnePlus 5 also has backlit hardware capacitive keys which can be disabled, just in case you’re comfortable with on-screen navigation buttons.
Q17. How is the OnePlus5 better than the OnePlus 3/3T?
The OnePlus 5 has improved a lot over the OnePlus 3/3T. One of the main areas is camera tech. Unlike OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5 features a dual camera setup at the rear, much akin to the iPhone 7 Plus. The primary camera is a f/1.7 aperture 16-megapixel camera, while the secondary camera is 20-megapixel with f/2.6 aperture and 40mm focal length.
However both the cameras lack OIS (Optical Image Stabilization).
Plus, the OnePlus5 is one of the few phones to have the advanced octa core 10-nanometer design Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. Combined with the 6GB (or 8GB for the 128GB variant) of RAM, it can not only render graphics faster but is also more battery efficient.
Q18. Does the dual camera setup really feature a 2.0x optical zoom?
To be precise, the OnePlus 5 features 2x lossless zoom. The optical zoom is only at 1.6x while the remaining 0.4x is captured through the phone’s built-in SmartCapture technology.
Q19. Is the Dash Charge adapter proprietary?
Yes, the Dash Charge adapter is proprietary, which means that it will be able to ‘dash charge’ only when both the adapter and USB Type-C cable is used together.
Q20. What does Bluetooth 5.0 mean?
Bluetooth 5.0 is the newer version of Bluetooth. The Samsung Galaxy S8 was the first phone to have it. With it, not only can you connect or air to external devices quickly but also a much-improved range.
If we talk numbers, it can cover nearly 2oo meters in the direct line of sight.
