After an initial rollout for OnePlus superfans, the new OnePlus 5 flagship is now available for any jerk who visits the OnePlus online store. The phone, which comes in $479 and $539 flavors, is currently in stock and "ships immediately." Once this wave of inventory runs out, the OnePlus store will switch back to preorders for "foreseeable stock" until that runs out as well.

No rush, though. In our review of the OnePlus 5, while we loved the phone’s raw performance, we weren't sold on its main selling point: the dual cameras. It's conceivable that OnePlus could improve the camera results somewhat through fundamental software changes. If it can, this phone is a great deal. If not, it's just another cheap "flagship" Android phone with all the right specs, mid-tier photos, and an extra-enthusiastic community cheering it on.
