OnePlus, the brand which appeared to the world just after the first leak of their new mobile device ‘OnePlus One’. Since the first leak of the device it became the most awaited mobile device throughout the beginning of the year 2014. Well, there is no doubt about why the device gained so much popularity among the users within a little time span. So in this article we will be checking out the features, specs, good and bad aspects of the device.
The Favourable aspect
The specification for the device remains the major plus point for the device. The sleek design of the device is also a desirable factor for it. Last but not the least, the feature that has attracted me the most is the Cyanogen mod 11S on the device built on Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Unfavorable aspect
If we talk about the unfavorable aspects of the device then I would like to put the real face of the design language in front of you. Frankly speaking if you are having small hands then the device can be a problem for you. The big 5.5 inch screen of the device is a big problem for some. On the other hand the software improvements for the device are yet to arrive. So, we can expect the company to launch more updates for improving the device’s stability in terms of OS.

The device comes with a great display at the price it is offered with. The display is the key factor which is expected to attract most of the users. The device gives pixels density of 401 ppi which is even more than that of Apple’s retina display. The viewing angles on the device are extremely clear and the colors are quite much crispy. The 16M colors of the device do perform very well with such a great setup inside the device. The display can be a super profit factor for the device.
The designing of the OnePlus One is extremely thin and premium. The device feels very much lighter and premium in hands. The placement of buttons for the device is much accurate considering the normal person’s palm size. It is capable of switching from on-screen buttons to off-screen buttons which is the best feature Cyanogen mod is providing to the device. This also comes with some cool covers. Love the black and blue ones.
OnePlus One has become the first mobile device to officially run on Cyanogen mod. However, there are some bugs and issues with the software part of the device. Some have reported the issue of dim sound during the call. Others have reported about the bad windows scale animation in the device. Since, Cyanogen mod is the best replacement for the stock ROM on any Android device, so we can expect the company to make a lot of changes in the software via OTA updates and this will surely improve the user’s experience.
The set of specification that the company has introduced in the device is the most thrilling part of it. The specifications inside the device make us to compare it with almost every leading flagship out there in the market. The powerful 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor makes the device run almost all the possible processes very smoothly.
Camera on the device again is very surprising. The 13 MP main shooter and 6 MP secondary shooter both are capable of recording the 1080p videos. However, it is also expected that the device will soon be able to capture the 4K videos with the future updates. Many new additional features are introduced in the camera application of the device. Well, as it’s not a true DSLR camera so don’t expect that much from the quality of picture. But the camera won’t disappoint you at any point.
The rivals for the device are not any mid-range devices from mobile manufacturer but the main rivals of the device are actually the flagship devices from the key players of the market. This list includes
