The design of the OnePlus 5 is no longer a mystery, as the company has officially revealed the render of this upcoming beast! The Smartphone do looks similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, but before criticizing the design, you should wait to see it in the real life.
Recently, OnePlus Product Manager responded to a question on Zhihu (Chinese question-and-answer website, similar to Quora) about the OnePlus 5's design. Obsessed with the design criticism, he defended the design of the Smartphone with multiple points.
One cannot simply judge the design and build quality of a smartphone just on the basis of its renders. Remember when the OnePlus 3 was leaked via TENNA before launch? Everyone on the internet called the design as ugly and boring. But after the release? Everyone who got their hands on the OnePlus 3 were impressed with the design and build.
He also states that the recent renders of the OnePlus 5 cannot define the quality of the phone or its workmanship. You will be able to compare the OnePlus 5 and other similar looking Smartphones only after holding them in your hands.
