Chris dB, Jul 8, 2017 : This week, we’re talking about a few awesome new bundles available in our store, earn our photography spurs, and cast a spotlight on the artistry of our community. We’ve got a lot to cover this week, so let’s dig in. Ding Ding! If the OnePlus 5 were a boxer, it’d compete in the welterweight division. It’s lean, nimble and packs one hell of a punch, both in the hardware as well as the software department. Any boxer will tell you that the right equipment can make the difference between an embarrassing TKO and a Championship Belt. So, unless you want your new device seeing Flipping Double (Order Bundle), get it Ready For Action (Order Bundle) now. You need to Protect Yo’ Self (Order Bundle), and go Bulletproof (Order Bundle) before things go Bump in the Night (Order Bundle). Go grab ‘em, champ. On Your Mark We spent month after month sweating away on the development of our new Dual Camera, so to hear DxO call the OnePlus 5 a ‘serious shooter’ is tremendously rewarding. It vindicates much of the hard work we’ve poured into its development. The OnePlus 5’s final DxOMark? 87! For the full scoop, check out their full review of our best camera now. New in Town With the launch of the OnePlus 5, we were extremely excited to welcome a lot of new faces to the OnePlus family. One of these is JohanFreak, who wrote a detailed report of his experiences during the first week with his OnePlus 5. Read up on his thoughts on Reddit now! We’re always excited to read your reviews and your impressions of our devices. If you’d like to share your opinion on any one of our products, or have some food for thought stored up, just drop ‘em in the comments below. Drawing Carl We’re often amazed by the OnePlus-inspired projects you guys share with us. Few have made our jaws hit the floor quite as loudly as @LightningXIII ’s stunning drawn portrait of @Carl . Kudos on the incredible work. The minute we laid eyes on this stunning drawing, we knew we had to feature it. Take a look in her thread now! Please respect the artist when commenting on her work, and refrain from sharing hurtful or disrespectful comments. In Review As one of the professional photographers behind our amazing gallery of OnePlus 5 sample photos, Alessandro Michelazzi has been pushing the OnePlus 5 to its limits for a while now. Based on his experiences, he’s cooked up an in-depth review on the photography capabilities of our latest flagship. This review by a professional photographer is an absolute must-read. The Name is 5. OnePlus 5. We could tell you about Fabio’s fabulous OnePlus 5 unboxing, or we could just show it to you. No spoilers. Instagram spotlight: @valentina_procopio88 When we launched this year’s edition of the Lab, we invited the best smartphone photographers to compete for a place on our Lab squad. Valentina was one of the overwhelming winners, and a shoo-in for our all-star team of reviewers. Since then, she’s taken her OnePlus 5 to Instagram to show off her best work. Check out her gallery now! The Future is Now We had a special guest from Sweden this week! Marcus Anzengruber, a premier evangelist for Augmented and Virtual Reality stopped by HQ for a chat on the future. He blew our minds with his stunning demos. In between accidentally whacking @Carl , and talking about the future of AR/VR (Hint: Battery life), his visit made for a memorable afternoon indeed. Do you think VR and AR will shape the future of tech? Let us know. That’ll be all for this week, friends! Thank you for reading. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m back to gorging myself on delicacies and perhaps purloining a glass of wine at our company-wide happy hour (We’ve got a lot to celebrate). We’ll be back next week with an all-new Weekly Update. See you then!
