The dual camera of the OnePlus 5 is one of the phone’s top selling points, so much so that OnePlus built its marketing campaign around the tagline “Dual Camera. Clearer photos.”
Having two lenses working together – a “normal” wide-angle one and a telephoto one – allowed OnePlus to add several cool features, including Portrait mode and a high-quality zoom feature. As usual though, the devil is in the details.
