Today, a Twitter user took to the mobile app to heap praises on the reliability of the OnePlus 5. This smartphone was released in 2017 and we can safely say that it is an almost forgotten device. According to the user, his old OnePlus 5 smartphone has gone through “hell fire” and still works perfectly. His Tweet reads

Dear @oneplus, my old OnePlus 5, which moved from myself to my wife and now my daughter, has been submerged in murky flood waters for several minutes and been dropped on concrete and subjected to a toddler. It still works perfectly. Hella good phone!”

However, this user may have just been lucky with this device going through a lot and still working. Furthermore, it is important to note that the OnePlus 5 supports IP67 rating. This means that this device will be just fine if it is submergen in 1 meter deep water for 30 minutes.

This device is the last OnePlus flagship smartphone that comes with a 16:9 display ratio. In terms of specifications, OnePlus 5 uses a 5.5-inch 1080P AMOLED display. Under the hood, this device comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Of course, this chip was a flagship processor at the time. In the camera department, this device uses a dual rear camera setup. It comes with a 20MP Sony sensor as well as a 16MP shooter. On the front, it has a 16MP selfie snapper. To keep its lights on, this 2017 flagship comes with a 3300mAh battery that supports Dash flash charging. Out of the box, this smartphone comes with Android 7.1 operating system, but has been upgraded to Android 9.
