OnePlus One is the recent flagship launched by the company, OnePlus. The OnePlus One has the best hardware you would expect in a phone so far! It rocks a Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen, with 401 ppi! The screen isn’t just good on the paper, but also to the feel, because it comes with the new Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The OnePlus One will get the updates the fastest, after the Google’s Nexus devices, because it’s preloaded with CyanogenMod 11s. It currently runs Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) and will be updated soon to Lollipop! Not only is it a beast at its display, but the specs inside in rock! 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.
But this post isn’t about its hardware, it’s about its software. OnePlus One comes with CyanogenMod 11s, as mentioned above, which means a ton of features to mess up with.
