OnePlus 5 is a great device when it comes to the hardware and performance but it lacks many great features and the device optimization is pretty average too. The OnePlus 5 does not have any special water protection and it does not support wireless charging. Talking about the design, the OnePlus 5 looks like a twin brother to the iPhone 7 Plus. The device has a metallic body and is 7.5 mm thin. OnePlus 5 looks and feels great because of its round edges. Most of the phones now feature QHD display and some have 4k too, but unfortunately the OnePlus is still behind with FHD 1080p 5.5-inch AMOLED panel display. Though the device is inspired by the iPhone 7 Plus, and luckily it still has an Earphone Jack.

E-Sim is the way to go!

Published

on

I was just going through my email and found an email from a certain brand claiming that their phone is superior in Dual Sim technology, So I quickly opened it to see what new have they done, well all it was trying to say was that E-Sim is not supported by every telecom company and our phones uses conventional technology so we are better than apple. That got me thinking, I researched a bit and tried to look into all the carriers that support E-Sim. So here is my conclusion on E-Sim and if it is better than the conventional way.

E-Sims, Are they any Good?

Availability

So when we look at the list of carriers, almost all major US carriers support E-Sim. A few in Europe and a handful in India, namely Airtel and JIo. This state is right now when the new phones are not in the market, Once they get in, I expect more number of Companies getting into this boat. So what this means is that the chances are your carrier will provide E-Sim, If not now, then they will very soon.

Functionality

To switch a sim from One phone to another is very simple, all you need is a small pin to open the bracket, take the sim and transfer it to the other one. For E-Sim, If your phone to say is non-functional, You will need to go to the nearest store of your carrier and get a sim or register a new E-Sim for your new phone. Well, this is not as easy as the previous one and for me, I like to change my phones very often.

Benefits?

A nano sim may seem pretty small but is very big compared to the internals of a phone, I recently disassembled a OnePlus 3 and got to know just how much space both the sims take, So having an E-Sim will definitely save that space and for that space, you can get upto 20% more battery.

Verdict!

It will take another year or so before the E Sims become less of a hassle but it is the future and the ideal way to go. It creates a lot more possibilities and No Doubt E-Sims will take over and Now as Apple has done it, more and more companies will try to do so as well.
