The engineers at DxO Labs have put the brand new OnePlus 5 through the DxOMark Mobile testing process, and the phone did not disappoint.

With an overall score of 87 points, the Chinese manufacturer's flagship device has delivered a respectable performance on par with well-liked phones like Huawei's Leica-branded P10 and Sony's Xperia XZ. This also puts it only three points behind the top-ranked HTC U11, and one point better than Apple's ever-popular iPhone 7.

DxOMark only tested the OnePlus 5 16MP main camera with F1.7 aperture, not the 20MP/F2.6 secondary 2x tele-module. The camera achieves a photo sub-score of 87 points, delivering good results in both bright and low-light situations. The testers were particularly impressed with the vivid color rendition, accurate white balance, good detail and the fast and smooth autofocus system.

Moving on to video, In the default 1080p/30fps video mode, the OnePlus offers accurate exposure and white balance in all conditions. The testers also liked the quick transition in changing light conditions, the accurate autofocus and the effective stabilization system. This earned the OnePlus a video sub-score of 86 points.
