OnePlus 5 display may look familiar, but also slightly worse

The OnePlus 5 sports the same S6E3FA5 AMOLED display as the OnePlus 3T. However, OnePlus has reportedly fine-tuned the panel to deliver better color accuracy — but that’s created a problem.

According to GSMArena, the OnePlus 5 has a lower maximum brightness and worse sunlight legibility than the OnePlus 3T, which is likely a result of the firm’s tinkering.

The good news is the brightness cap and sunlight settings can be altered as part of a software update, so if enough people reach out to OnePlus, you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be fixed.

The OnePlus 5 is OnePlus’ latest flagship smartphone

For those unfamiliar, the OnePlus 5 is OnePlus’ latest flagship smartphone. It’s scheduled to go on sale on June 27, with pricing set at $480 for the 6/64GB variant and $540 for the 8/128GB model.

As for specifications, we’re looking at a Snapdragon 835 processor, UFS 2.1 storage, a “tailor-made” dual-camera setup (16MP low-light + 20MP telephoto) and a 3,300mAh battery.
