OnePlus One Review - The Real Flagship Killer

Devices that excel at everything usually fetch a hefty price but occasionally users will have a tougher riddle to solve. The OnePlus One is a great device with an even better price tag. You probably want it but can't get it. Bummer. This flagship killer's biggest problem is there may not be flagships left to kill by the time it's done handing out the invites.

Yet, the One is your kind of phone if you like surprises - and believe in delaying pleasure. It's the phone for Android purists and modders, running the highly customizable CyanogenMod with over the air updates.

If that's Android how you like it and phablet size isn't a deal-breaker, the One also comes with flagship-grade hardware at the price of a mini, at most. You get Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM, 4K video recording, a FullHD 1080p display and a whopping 64 gigs of storage - that's a respectable list by any standard.

Beyond the mechanical sum of specs, the OnePlus One truly handles well - the UI is buttery smooth, expected from a blend of pure Android and CyanogenMod, the screen is nice and sharp, the battery does well, the camera is excellent, the speakers are extra loud and the hardware costs more than they charge.

 Here's a list of our other key test findings for the OnePlus One:
  1. The display is good and quite bright, but the poor blacks cause an only average contrast ratio
  2. Battery life is solid, especially call times
  3. It benchmarks like a champ
  4. The still camera is excellent and resolves plenty of detail
  5. Video recording is second to none, and we don't say that only because of the great DCI 4K footage
  6. Speakers are among the loudest we've tested (despite not being stereo)
  7. Managed to play every video format we threw at it, including those with DTS and AC3 audio tracks
So let's look at what else you can get, not necessarily for the same amount of cash. Probably the only one that will fit into budget is the 16GB LG-made Nexus 5. It has the slightly less-powerful Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 5" 1080p display and stock Android with fast-track updates by Google.
