OnePlus One review summary

OnePlus has come out of nowhere with its first smartphone, a beast of a device that rivals flagships that cost more than twice as much. Even with near-zero advertising and a very tight supply chain, this plucky startup could turn the entire market on its ear. The OnePlus One offers phenomenal performance, a great full-HD screen, and pretty much all the modern features you’d expect on a current-day top-end smartphone. Sadly, the company won’t be able to support its custom CyanogenMod 11S OS with updates in India. Even so, this phone offers by far the best value you can get at this price – if you can get your hands on a precious invitation, that is. Read detailed OnePlus One review

Awesome phone
By Shrikrishna Shanbhag | 3 Nov 2014 | 3 Nov 2014
Its an amazing phone. I have got my OnePlus-One from US and have been using it on Airtel 4G network for last 10 days. No complaints whatsoever. Extremely impressed with performance, perfect size (can reach full keypad with one hand), great build quality, best camera (both front and rear), customisability of menus etc... all in all AWESOME phone.

MHL TV out & FM are Missing Features
By Vinod D | 16 May 2014 | 16 May 2014
I fell these are the missing features where all Indians like to have, FM is definitely needed and TV-out gives advantage where no smart TV's are affordable.

The hype of the year award goes to...
By joaquin fabricio cazarez avila | 30 Jul 2014 | 30 Jul 2014
Ok, these are the facts: I buy one in a chinese page, this ones are real and original one plus one versions with color OS , they don´t say it, but all of them are flashed with cyanogen ROM... These ones dont say in the back "cyanogen" the logo that the ones of the legendary invitation have... I feel this version buggy, i have an iphone 5s, you know, if i want to take a picture is like the faster thing i can do, the one plus is slow... some apps randomly crash, why?... 3gb ram, snapdragon 801, ok ok, yes, but, is better than the bloat galaxy s5?... Aaaaand yes people, the yellow issue at the bottom of the screen is REAL !! i hate it ... with all my heart, im from mexico, so i haven´t any guarantee... so i have to resell it.. sorry for my lame english, but this review is real, go and buy a nexus 5 instead ths one... yes... and i have to pay about 30% of his price at the "aduana" here in mexico, there is not TLC with china.... so, death and TAXES !
