Best OnePlus 5 Deals: Where to buy SIM-free, UK networks and trade-in

Looking to buy the OnePlus 5? We have all the details you need to pre-order the OnePlus 5, including where to buy on a UK network.

The OnePlus 5 is finally official, and it looks as good as we expected. Boasting a slick design, dual cameras, and Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 835 chip, it’s a major contender for flagship of the year.

We gave the OnePlus 5 a respectable 4.5/5 score in our review, praising the handset’s fantastic software, great value, excellent Dash Charge, and the impressive dual-camera arrangement. Here’s our verdict:

“Even though at £449/$479 the OnePlus 5 is the most expensive entry in the series yet, it still is undeniably one of the biggest bargains in tech. Considering varieties of the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S8 can cost up to £400 more, it really does feel like OnePlus is onto another winner.”

“It’s not quite the revolutionary step forward that the OnePlus 3 was, but there are solid improvements across the board. I can’t see anyone picking up this phone and feeling short-changed or disappointed.”

The OnePlus 5 starts from £449 for the 6GB RAM/64GB storage variant, and rises to £499 for the 8GB RAM/128GB storage model. Here’s how to get one.
