OnePlus One equals a bargain

OnePlus One

The OnePlus One is looking like the hottest Android smartphone on the block right now. How else do you describe a smartphone running CyanogenMod 11S based on Android 4.4, with a 5.5 inch 1080p Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), 401 PPI, display with Corning© Gorilla© Glass 3, and powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ 801 processor with 2.5GHz Quad-core CPU and Adreno 330 GPU? Then, there is 3GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX 214 camera with 6 physical lenses, 4G LTE, Stereo Speakers, and a 3100mAh battery. The One is a geek’s dream.

The 16GB unit will cost just $299, while the 64GB version will sell for $349. You get the picture? Everything about the OnePlus One smells “bargain”.

There is bad news though: the One is not selling in any African country (yet). The OnePlus One will be available in only 16 countries for starters, namely: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States. That’s it for now.

If you live in one of those countries, you have an opportunity to get a unit for only $1 by being selected among 100 people to smash their current flagship phones. Yes; you have to own one of the flagships of the major mobile brands – and you have to smash it. Sounds like fun? Go smash your phone.

    Compulsive Destructive Disorder (CDD).

    I wouldn’t destroy anything, for ANY reason, especially for a reason as vainglorious as this.

    WHEN Desktop PCs first came out, they cost an eye and a tongue. They eventually became comparatively dirty cheap.

    I think the era of super powerful superphones… costing peanuts ..is almost (finally?) here with us.

    And the Chinese are primarily at the forefront of this drive.

    Good for consumers, and a challenge to the iPhones of this world..

    One Plus seem to have done the impossible, flagship specs at sub Nexus prices. however if you look closely you’ll see that the company’s cutting costs in a few ways.
    – One Plus will not be.making profit off the One
    – very little publicity or marketing cost basically it’s the tech crowd that’s blowing their trumpets for them
    – controlled production, since they are a startup over production would hurt them badly
    – some compromises on the phone itself, eg no wireless charging and partial LTE support (doesn’t cover the full spectrum )

    bottomline is the One Plus One is a great device and for sub Nexus prices, it’s a hell of a bargain. I’m looking forward to seeing subsequent One Plus projects
