Battery Life

The OnePlus 5 comes with a 3,300 mAh (12.71 Wh at 3.85V) non-removable lithium-polymer battery. This is a 100 mAh, or three percent, reduction on what the OnePlus 3 provided, though with the same screen size and more efficient hardware, this change should be largely negligible.

The OnePlus 5 is firmly a mid-table performer, falling around the same mark as the LG G6, Huawei P10 and Google Pixel XL in our tests, but coming in behind the strongest performers such as the Galaxy S8+ and the Xiaomi Mi 6. The OnePlus 5 performs particularly well in PCMark, however its performance in our web browsing tests is less impressive.

Dash Charging still remains one of the fastest ways to charge a smartphone. Using the included charger, the OnePlus 5 was a few minutes slower on burst charge than the OnePlus 3, but it still outperformed other handsets on the market today.
