The device has a metallic body and is 7.5 mm thin. OnePlus 5 looks and feels great because of its round edges. Most of the phones now feature QHD display and some have 4k too, but unfortunately the OnePlus is still behind with FHD 1080p 5.5-inch AMOLED panel display. Though the device is inspired by the iPhone 7 Plus, and luckily it still has an Earphone Jack.
