- Flexible CyanogenMod OS
- Phenomenal value for money
- Good screen
- Blazing fast performance
- Restricted availability
- Disappointing battery life
- Average camera
- 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.
- 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.
- Sadly, the company won’t be able to support its custom CyanogenMod 11S OS with updates in India.
- 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 .
- Even with near-zero advertising and a very tight supply chain, this plucky startup could turn the entire market on its ear.

OnePlus One Key Test Findings
- Managed to play every video format we threw at it, including those with DTS and AC3 audio tracks .
- Speakers are among the loudest we’ve tested (despite not being stereo) .
- Video recording is second to none, and we don’t say that only because of the great DCI 4K footage .
- The still camera is excellent and resolves plenty of detail .
- It benchmarks like a champ .
- Battery life is solid, especially call times .
- The display is good and quite bright, but the poor blacks cause an only average contrast ratio .
