There’s no One Plus 4 this year, but instead the One Plus 5 takes things up another level with a seriously packed spec sheet – and a higher price.
The headline feature here is an interesting dual-camera setup on the back, but in typical One Plus fashion there’s a serious amount of power and the option of a frankly ridiculous 8GB of RAM. For £449/9, the One Plus 5 is a fantastic deal, but the higher price necessitates a more critical look at some of its shortcomings.
The previously undisclosed ads suggest that the operatives worked off evolving lists of racial, religious, political and economic themes.
They used these to create pages, write posts and craft ads that would appear in users' news feeds — with the apparent goal of appealing to one audience and alienating another.

The ads that Facebook found raise troubling questions for a social networking and advertising platform that reaches 2 billion people each month, and they offer a rare window into how Russian operatives carried out their information operations during an especially tumultuous period in U.

The batch of more than 3,000 Russian-bought ads that Facebook is preparing to turn over to Congress shows a deep understanding of social divides in American society, with some ads promoting African American rights groups, including Black Lives Matter, and others suggesting that these same groups pose a rising political threat, say people familiar with the covert influence campaign.
The Russian campaign — taking advantage of Facebook's ability to send contrary messages to different groups of users based on their political and demographic characteristics — also sought to sow discord among religious groups.
Other ads highlighted support for Democrat Hillary Clinton among Muslim women.
These targeted messages, along with others that have surfaced in recent days, highlight the sophistication of an influence campaign slickly crafted to mimic and infiltrate U. political discourse while also seeking to heighten tensions between groups already wary of one another.
