OnePlus 5 was officially unveiled yesterday along with an advance sale program that will last until the terminal is generally available next week. Or while supplies last, because the higher version of the terminal has lasted less than a candy to the door of a college.
The OnePlus 5 Advance Sale program for Europe and the United States offers free priority shipment to the customer’s home within three days, an exclusive welcome pack with a 50% discount that includes an additional case or protector Screen and special discounts on accessories.
To access the advance sale of the OnePlus 5 the user has to access its portal and when asked to write the code “Clearer Photos”, which was shown at the terminal presentation conference. The problem is that the top version is out of stock, the same as the exclusive package.
As in all these cases it is difficult to say if they had prepared few units for the program or the demand has been so high that it has been exhausted in just a few hours. Surely there has been a bit of both. The base version is still available. Hopefully for the general sale that starts next week there will be enough stock because this series of terminals has never stood out for a good distribution.

Not all in a mobile are components, but in gross power, OnePlus 5 has to give and take, left over to move the AMOLED panel that mounts with 1080p resolution and other outstanding features like a system of cameras signed by Sony (double sensor in the main ), which the company has prepared with special care.

Its chassis is manufactured in a unibody aluminum body of undoubtedly attractive, as its design, similar to other terminals in the market as the same iPhone. It is difficult to innovate in this section and from OnePlus it is pointed out that they have tested up to 100 prototypes with different design until releasing the definitive, with finishes in gray or black.
As for the price, it is as good as expected given its features. OnePlus 5 is available in two versions. The first with 6GB RAM / 64GB of storage, is priced at $ 499. The second with 8 GB RAM / 128 GB storage, costs $ 559.
