OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are the last year’s addition to OnePlus flagship lineup. OnePlus 5 is an absolute beast, both in terms of hardware and software. My almost-two-year-old OnePlus 3 still runs like a dream without any hiccups! If we have to pick one thing that OnePlus absolutely nailed, it has got to be the OxygenOS. It may not be as customizable as the likes of MIUI or as raw as the stock Android but boy is it smooth! In my opinion, OxygenOS kind-of tries to find the balance between both extremes. The audio quality on OnePlus 5 is by no means bad, let me get that out of the way. But, if you are looking to further improve the already great audio experience, you can download Dolby Atmos for OnePlus 5 and install it.
