Later last year, a company named OnePlus released its first device, the One. The intention of this release was to provide the users with a device sporting beastly specifications at a highly affordable price. Let us take a look at its specifications in a glance. The OnePlus One sports a full HD screen, with an amazing pixel density of 441! The screen isn’t just good on the paper, but it is also very durable, because it is the new Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The OnePlus One is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 chipset, and a whooping 2.5 GHz Quad-Core processor and the Krait 400.

This means that handset gamers will obviously choose this phone in particular. So, for the $300 price bracket, you not only get an awesomely spec’ed device, but also because of its constant updates. The OnePlus One runs on Cyanogenmod 11S, and will get the updates fastest after the Nexus’es.
