You can now pick up the OnePlus 5 in India.
The OnePlus 5 made its debut in India late last week, and the phone is now up for sale exclusively on Amazon India. The variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage costs ₹32,999 ($510), and the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage is available for ₹37,999 ($590).
Both variants are currently in stock, and if you’re ordering today, you’ll be able to take advantage of several launch day offers. Customers with SBI credit and debit cards get a flat ₹1,500 cashback, and you’ll be eligible to receive ₹500 in credit toward Kindle e-books once you sign in to the Kindle app. You can also get ₹250 as Amazon Pay balance after streaming a video on Amazon’s Prime Video.
OnePlus’ service partner Servify has teamed up with Kotak to offer subsidized 12-month accidental damage insurance for those opening a Kotak 811 account and paying ₹1,000. If you’re a Vodafone subscriber, you can get up to 75GB of free 4G data along with free access to Vodafone Play for three months.
As a refresher, the OnePlus 5 offers a 5.5-inch Full HD Optic AMOLED display, 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835, dual cameras at the back that include a 16MP sensor augmented by a 20MP telephoto lens, 16MP front camera, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, 3300mAh battery and Dash Charge. On the software front, you’re getting a relatively customization-free skin with OxygenOS 4.5 atop Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The phone has a lot going for it, as Andrew Martonik noted in his detailed review:
You’re getting a jam-packed and future-proof spec sheet, an above-average display, solid speaker, good battery life, fast charging and a well-built aluminum body. The software is slick, fast and consistent in ways that few phones can match, and doesn’t include piles of features that get in your way.
