The OnePlus 5 goes on sale in many regions across the world starting from today. While not as affordable as previous OnePlus phones, the 5 does pack top-notch internals that can give other flagship phones in the market a run for their money.

However, there is one feature that still remains exclusive to an excellent Android smartphone launched last year: OnePlus 3‘s Dash Charge.
