Yeah, and we can't even rely on the Nexus programme anymore for a well priced, good phone.
You can understand the incremental increase in price over the past few years as OnePlus actually grows into a large company but they're now pushing themselves on a equal standing with everyone else and coming up short.
The battery life sounds mediocre with the years long standard four hours of screen time, and the camera that bumped the price up from £329 last year doesn't sound worth it either. Considering it's missing a heap of features the newest phones have the OnePlus 5 appears to be more like an overpriced mid-range phone, which is a massive disappointment as I was hoping this might have been something worth having for three years.
Seems to be a shitty time to think about upgrading then, as even with all the negatives this is still probably the 'best' value phone around.
