Looking at the specifications of OnePlus Open, it seems as if there is no flaw in this folding phone. Although it is a Chinese company, there will be something missing. This folding phone is not IPX8 rated which means that you cannot take it in water.

Whereas Fold5 is waterproof and is also IPX8 rated. Still, it can withstand splashes of open water or rain showers. Therefore, you can run it without any charges. Which should be necessary for a user and should be sufficient for him.

What’s in The Open Box

OnePlus’ open folding phone is also packed in the signature red paper box like other mobiles. Which also looks quite big and big in size. The box being big clearly means that the size of the folding phone has to be big.

Inside the box you get a SuperVOOC charging adapter which is 80V. Despite this discrepancy, OnePlus says charging won’t go above 67W no matter which adapter you use, so charging times will be the same worldwide. The same charging/data cable is an 8a-rated USB-C to USB cable.

For safety, OnePlus has also provided plastic covers for both the folding ones. Which comes with leather finishing matching the color of the phone.

To protect the display, a thin guard has been installed on the open key screen which is not of good quality. But it comes with a better and more durable ceramic guard screen than before. If you want, you can remove it and install a new screen guard.

OnePlus has not left any stone unturned in its first folding phone and has provided every feature that the user wants in his mobile. It’s a folding phone with a good processor, a good camera and solid build quality.
