OnePlus One Android Phone Kills Other Android Phones

OnePlus One (OPO) android smartphone is regarded as the "flagship killer"by the company and in actual fact, it is a really powerful android smartphone running CyanogenMod 11S based on KitKat 4.4.2

The company behind the OnePlus One smartphone have really done a lot to make sure that the device stands out and yet very affordable.

First we look at the physical appearance of the device which gives it a very premium feel and look. Everything about the phone screams class, style, endurance and quality. Going by the words from the manufacturers "Don't settle for less"; that is exactly what the OnePlus One smartphone is all about.

The body feels highly comfortable when held especially with the plastic sandstone design with subtle curves at the edges.

The device runs CyanogenMod 11S right from the box so it doesn't come with the usual bloatware you find on most Android devices especially Samsung devices. Also, this CyanogenMod is the most recent version which is based on Android KitKat 4.4.2.

Now to the internals...

The OnePlus One runs a 2.5GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 801 processor which is one of the best chip out there in the smartphone industry. Hence, its in the same league as Samsung Galaxy S5 but will definitely run faster without lag becomes the OnePlus One is bloatware-free. Furthermore, the device will have 3GB DDR3 RAM on it to make sure things runs as smooth as possible and a 4G LTE network connectivity.

Like that isn't enough, the OPO has a 5.5 inch LTPS IPS immersive 1080p display with high resolution and clarity coupled with a good non-removable 3100mAh worth of battery power to keep the device running for more than a day.

Also, the camera department of this smartphone is no joke. With rear 13 mega pixel 6 lens camera providing you with sharp high resolution images and can also shoot HUD videos thanks to the Sony Exmor sensor; followed by a 5 mega pixel front camera for those video calls and selfie images.

    Purchasing one via an invite is kinda discouraging. I wished I could lay my hands on a piece to give it a spin.
