As you can see, the OnePlus 5 looks identical to the iPhone 7. We even can say there are no differences between these two models. This may cause many problems because the OnePlus 3 / 3T were great alternates for those who don’t want to pay a fortune for a top brand handset like the iPhone. Now seems the company changes the strategy, and it wants to attract those customers who want an iPhone-like smartphone with great performance.
No one can say whether this is a good idea or not, but one thing is clear. The OnePlus 5 has been designed to compete with handsets such as the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. Both devices are packed with the same chip, Snapdragon 835. Now it turns out the OnePlus 5 can lose many customers due to a design all we are familiar with, while its competitors offer something differ.
