OnePlus 5 now available in Soft Gold for a limited time

If you're the sort that strives for that extra bit of tasteful ostentation, OnePlus' two original colors might not have made the cut. Gray and black are a bit bland, after all.

If you've ever been involved in an emergency in which you've had to call 911, chances are that you were overwhelmed by feelings of panic.

OnePlus support on Twitter is so bad they confuse compliments with complaints

OnePlus has come a long way since it thought selling the OnePlus 2 without NFC was a good idea—the OnePlus 5 is a good phone, despite the foibles.
