Pricing : First thing which comes to mind while buying mobiles is ‘Price of the Device' – When device from OnePlus are concerned, you can surely go for it, blindly !

Why you should avoid OnePlus 5
Few support for accessories : OnePlus simply removes its accessories for older devices when a new device launches and, official accessories went missing from even online shopping sites in few months from the launch of latest OnePlus mobile.
Be sure to buy important extra accessories while buying any new OnePlus One mobile phone. This is official strategy to sell more accessories initially so you can't do nothing but purchasing extra accessories at the time of purchase !
Overheating Issue : OnePlus One always uses high end CPUs normally clocked over 2Ghz. Since the termination between Cyanogen & OnePlus 5, stable releases of CyanogenMod (Now Lineage OS) is dead, which normally helped OnePlus users to control CPU for heat management by optimizing CPU usage.
Most of the OnePlus mobiles are simply heater – This temperature heats up Camera module most of the time no matter you are using Camera or not – which ultimately downgrade Camera quality in 11 to 13 months of its usage.
Huge charge for Hardware Replacement : If you damage or break any hardware, it will cost you a lot ! Both Lenovo & Mi charge less when services are concerned. Hardware for OnePlus mobiles are very costly and you will end up paying extra charge for additional repair while replacing or repairing something at OnePlus service center.
Just search OnePlus service centers and, call them one-by-one to ask ‘Screen replacement charge' (for example) you will get be shocked to hear different charges at different service point even in same City for same service !
Full Data LOSS during Service : Service centers will wipe whole data in the name of ‘Device Check up' even when you are going to replace just broken screen ! Data backup always recommend while using OnePlus mobiles.
No control over Service centers for service charge : OnePlus has officially fixed pricing of OnePlus hardware but ‘Service Centers' will charge you more no matter you show them official charge list. Worst thing is different service center will charge differently if you ask them to replace or repair same thing.
Limited support for OS (OxygenOS) : After the termination between OnePlus & Cyanogen, OnePlus brought OxygenOS which is nothing but Stock ROM integrated with limited tweaks. CynogenMod is till great for its older devices. Heat dissipation is a famous drawback for OxygenOS. Even you can get Apple iPhone 6 at just 23K (FlipKart Special Offer) with constant 4 years of OS support but OnePlus simply forget it older devices when OS update is concerned !
Every electronics devices got some good and some bad review, For the case of OnePlus, if you buy new mobiles with additional accessories; Never break any hardware, Even avoid long waiting of OS updates and, forget Camera overheating & quality downgrade problem then, OnePlus 5 would be the next most ‘Value for money' mobile for you.
