OnePlus One (Unlocked)

 

With an unbeatable price and power to spare, the OnePlus One is an Android revelation that challenges expectations for affordable smartphones.

Unbeatable price-to-performance ratio. Attractive and well built. Excellent 1080p LCD. Unlocked and 4G LTE compatible.

Some software bugs. Disappointing call quality.

Cameras and Conclusions The OnePlus One comes equipped with a 13-megapixel, rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. OnePlus says it uses a Sony Exmor IMX 214 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture for gathering more light...

The OnePlus One Review

 

The OnePlus One has been one of the most hyped smartphones of 2014. There's really not much else to be said, as OnePlus' marketing has been quite noticeable amongst Android enthusiasts. The OnePlus One seems to come from nowhere, although there is a...

Overall though, the OnePlus One isn’t a bad phone by any means. It remains one of the cheapest devices with Snapdragon 801 on the market, and the hardware on offer is really something great. However, there is a disappointing level of polish in this...

Review: One OnePlus

 

The OnePlus One is among the best Android handsets on the current market. At $299 unlocked, it's also one of the best deals in smartphones. But demand for the upstart device is so high, it's become exceedingly difficult to actually purchase one.

Big, powerful, and cheap—top-shelf specs for half the price of its competitors. Gestures are easy to set up and genuinely useful. Beautiful operating system is fully customizable, with thousands of theme packs including unique icons, fonts and boot...

Performance occasionally suffers during intense multitasking sessions. Camera is only average—shots are decent, but hardly stunning. Extremely limited availability; even if you score a pre-order, be prepared to wait

OnePlus One review

 

OnePlus One is a huge bargain on paper, but we don't recommend it. This phone is chock full of annoying bugs and issues, and customer service isn't up to par.

If you’re a geek willing to tolerate a lot of bugs, glitches, quirks, and poor customer service for a low price, the OnePlus One remains a good deal. This is essentially a Galaxy S5 (without waterproofing) or HTC One M8 for half the price. It can be a...

There's plenty to like about this powerful phone that comes free of carrier restrictions and offers a whole host of customizable options.

Thorough customization options let you tweak every facet of the interface ; The 5.5-inch screen is gorgeous and you can tweak the colors to your liking

Low-light photo taking abilities are a bit disappointing

A beautiful display and a multitude of customization options make this phone an attractive option if you’re looking for an unlocked Android device.

OnePlus One Review

 

Indie smartphone maker OnePlus One packs premium features and a CyanogenMod interface into a handsome body for just $299 unlocked--if you can get one.

Handsome body; Good front and rear cameras; Superb battery life; Great value; Many CyanogenMod personalization options; Shoots 4K video

Buttons beneath display not bright enough; Invite-only availability; Somewhat heavy

OnePlus One review

 

The OnePlus One has plenty of promise, and it doesn't disappoint. For a non-contract, SIM-free price of $299 (around £180 or AU$320) for the 16GB version and $349 (roughly £210 or AU$380) for the 64GB model, the Android-powered smartphone is one of the...

The OnePlus One has a sleek design that comfortably fits in your pocket, and the phone's powerful specs deliver a smooth, lag-free performance for a relatively low price.

The 5.5-inch display is too wide to use with one hand, and the Android-based CyanogenMod operating system isn't very stable at the moment. The camera is mediocre, and audio volume during calls is too soft. Its 4G radio won't work on every network.

Though it's one of this year's better Android phones on paper, the OnePlus One isn't for everyone, nor is it readily available.

OnePlus One review: a $300 smartphone has never looked so good

 

Great value, Fantastic display, Premium hardware, Top-of-the-line specs, Firmware is as customizable as you can get

Minor stutters in processor-intensive tasks, Limited availability at launch, Low speaker volume

For $300, no other phone comes close to what the OnePlus One offers. Not only does it look and feel like a premium device, but it also comes with specs similar to what you'd find in a flagship smartphone. If you want a high-end phone on a budget, look...

From China with love: can Oppo and OnePlus upend the way we buy smartphones?

 

Chances are, the smartphone in your hand or pocket was designed by a company based in America, Korea, or maybe Taiwan. Most consumers have probably never even looked at or considered a smartphone from a Chinese company.

Sharp display ; Solid build quality ; Good battery life

Ugly software ; Not as good a value as OnePlus One ; Only sold direct

The Oppo Find 7a undercuts competitors from Samsung and HTC by a good amount while still providing a high-end experience
