So I got my hands on one of the very limited invites for OnePlus One, the new flagship killer phone from Chinese technology startup OnePlus. The phone came yesterday, and after 24 hours of using it I’m writing this review and unboxing video.
The OnePlus One made waves in April when they finally announced the features of the phone. They’re nothing to sneeze at. The Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5ghz ties with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3. 3 gigabytes of RAM tops the charts. The 13 MegaPixel rear facing camera is ahead of most of the competition, and the 5 MegaPixel front facing camera will make all of your friends jealous when they see your selfies on SnapChat and Instagram.
I purchased the 64 gigabyte Sandstone Black version. At $350 with no contract it provides the best cost-to-performance ratio on the market by far. The cheaper 16 gigabyte Silk White version costs $299, so if your wallet is light and you don’t need the extra memory, this is a very inexpensive phone.
