RIP in peace every other phone. Was expecting $400 for 16gb. This phone is a beast, beautiful and runs the cleanest OS, even cleaner than stock android.

Looks sick, my only reserve is the build quality and design.

Theres alot of cheaper chinese phones that offer high specs for ridiculously cheap, and there's generally a reason for it.

I bought a Huawei a few years ago, it was $200 cheaper than any other phone with similar specs, i couldn't use Navigation and have it charging at same time, would overheat and shutdown, basically couldn't do anything whilst it charged or it would overheat. Had it for two months, then when i finally dropped it once from knee height, the screen shattered and would cease to turn on. Saved up and bought a Galaxy Nexus after that and will never go back to a Huawei or anything similar.

That being said, just cause some cheap phones are **** doesn't mean all are, would love to hear that this is different and delivers what it boasts on paper.

Lol at the OnePlus forums ****storm after people discovered the phone will be comparable to a note 3 but with smaller bezels for better grip. People were expecting an S5-sized phone with a 5.5inch screen, u wot m8.

At this price you can either STFU and buy it or go get buttfuked paying 700$ for a phone.

Cyanogen software is as good as it gets, the camera has already shown to take fantastic pics. I guess my only reserve would be the battery. 3100mAh on cyanogen SHOULD get like 2 days of battery life because the OS is so clean.. if it doesn't then there might be something wrong

They meant skinnier. It is skinnier than the z1 but it's a little taller.. I personally like the bezel design anyway

Now the only concern is availability...Not very down to wait 2 months until ONLY the neckbeards who rided the admin's cock on forums since july can get invitations to buy the phone and the rest have to wait until late july to order it.

They spent way too much time talking chit and overhyping the phone and not enough time on preparing proper logistics....

I don't care about the build quality. The S4 build quality is horse piss, but I've managed just fine.
One of the biggest factors is that it's running Cyanogen out of the box. Not only is Cyanogen great, but that should also be a giveaway that this phone should be unlockable for other custom roms

they are losing money on these after R&D, assembly, testing, marketing, packaging, shipping. Probably $250-300 in parts alone. the galaxy s5 is around $260 in parts alone, and this is with ridiculously large bulk pricing which smaller companies can't afford

The iphone cost is only $200. Also it's much cheaper to manufacture in China(iphone and Oppo/OnePlus) than Korea(Samsung). Plus they outsourced a lot of the RnD and Assembly to Oppo. Samsung dumps tons of RnD into useless gimmicks. Oppo and OnePlus keep it simple and outsource a lot of the features. (Sony Camera, JBL audio, JDI display, Cyanogen OS).. They have much less overhead than one of these large companies

They definitely SAVED in a lot of areas but i'm curious to see what corners they did cut if any. They have not mentioned a whole lot about the audio DAC, but it is JBL which is supposedly very high quality.. It's absolutely possible for HTC, Samsung, Sony and LG to make cheaper flagships(Nexus 5). They just dump so much into their proprietary hardware/features they artificially inflated this idea that a phone should cost 6-700

This concept sounds exactly like what Google made the Nexus line for. For developers and guys that like to tinker/mod their phones with a cleaner experience than other UIs while cheap off contract.

The Nexus phones don't sell anywhere close to what iPhones, Galaxy S and Note phones sell.

I've had plenty of experience with custom roms in the past and such. I'll take an official OS any day over a custom rom.

First of all you're the idiot because you clearly can't read. I said IF I got a Note I'd just root it and put a vanilla rom on it if I wanted. Stock android on the Note 4 would fly just as it does on the Note 3 and 2.

And that's a big IF. I'm most likely getting the iPhone 6. I'm still on my 4S and I can say that iOS is easily the cleanest OS out there. I do like android too but I'm all about performance and my phone still feels more responsive than lots of phones that've come out in 2014.

Why would I buy a phone off contract when I'm satisfied with the carrier I'm on and am eligible for upgrade? If I get it I'm getting it at the $300 contract price. The only point to buying a phone off contract is if you don't want to be tied down to them and have the option to leave for them for free if you want. I've had Verizon for 2 years and they've been nothing but good to me so I'm not leaving. Would never sign up with shiity ass AT&T and their crap network. VZW > TMO > Sprint > dog shiit > ATT

Also the only reason I'd use my upgrade on the Note 4 is if the iPhone 6 is a flop which I doubt it'll be.

$200 contract price for a typical smartphone on a $170/month plan with 4 smartphones with unlimited calls & texts and 6GB of data (since we only use around 4 all together). Yeah I'm fine with that. Especially since I only pay my portion of the plan.

My note 3 was $600 in TMO when I got it. I dont think Note 4 will be a lot more expensive than 3; I hope. Note 3's production cost is just $13.5 more than Note 2.

Anyway, why are you phaggots fighting about this lol!? I think its nice that newer phones like this are being introduced for better competition. I just thought Nexus phones having similar price are still better choice than this for having tested manufacturers. Problem is I think I read somewhere that N5 is the last Nexus Google is releasing.

So, wtf is your point.Generally a contract plan costs a lot more than a month to month plan. You might be locked in paying $100 or so a month for 2 years while you could get something comparable for $50 a month off contract. The difference is 50 a month. 50*24=$1200 which is the hidden cost of these subsidized phones and long contracts

Most people are fine with getting the phone discount and being on a contract, but there is an incredible amount of people uneducated on the subject, which is exactly what the service companies want.

Lol. Yes, on the very off chance that a company would cut the price of a plan IN HALF for the same service, sure, being off contract would be worth it. That doesn't happen, and staying in contract ends up being better a far greater amount.

I am paying 50/month for at off contract what I was paying 90 for on contract before.. You can get tmo for as little as 30 a month for like 6gb of LTE... They just don't advertise it and a subsidized $200 phone doesn't qualify for these plans for obvious reasons. You have to bring in your own phone but you save in the long run

There are some cases where a contract is cheaper. Particularly huge share plans with 4+ phones. But for most people they are getting ripped off and don't even know it

You can get a line from TMO and EIP for any phone now without contract.

Get an individual plan with unlimited everything for $70 monthly, then apply for EIP for whatever phone you want. There is no built-in cost.
You can end up paying $95/mo line and phone for 2 yrs and it will be the same as paying the phone outright for $600 and $70/mo for 2 yrs.

Though its not the same for other networks and built-in cost still applies.

LOL dude its not an off chance. They offer these plans, they are simply not advertised. I am paying 50/month for at off contract what I was paying 90 for on contract before.. You can get tmo for as little as 30 a month for like 6gb of LTE... They just don't advertise it and a subsidized $200 phone doesn't qualify for these plans for obvious reasons. You have to bring in your own phone but you save in the long run

There are some cases where a contract is cheaper. Particularly huge share plans with 4+ phones. But for most people they are getting ripped off and don't even know it
That $30 plan only comes with 100 mins and you only get 4g for the first 5gb. I suppose if you barely use your phone aside from texting thats a good deal. For those who actually use their phones, it isn't. Not to mention it's on tmobile. It's chit unless you stay solely in a relatively large city.

Well, that really got off track. lol

I didn't see this thread so I made a post in the Android thread. It's a potentially awesome phone. I am, unfortunately, on Verizon. I won't be able to try this phone out.

I pay $90/mo for unlimited data, unlimited texts and 450 minutes. I really can't get a prepaid plan with enough data for me. I use around 5gb a month, some months more. I don't see a plan bigger than 3GB for 90 days. If there's more let me know.

And using 5GB is fairly heavy data use per month. It's definitely not, just texting.

And if you only use 4gb of data for 4 phones, and are planning on getting an iPhone 6 then regular misc is a better place for you. This is the Technology section.

I'll end it with just saying I pay the same price as your posted ATT on verizon with unlimited everything. All because I stayed on contract. If you want something cheap now, sure go off contract. Limits on voice and data will only get smaller, all while plans get more expensive.

Quebec is honestly the last place you'd want to sign a contract, unless you have years at a carrier to justify arguing with them or got a relative who's been there for 10+ years. Otherwise brb picking phone on contract and minimum you can pay is 80$ for poverty as chit plan. Only Bell offers somewhat lower contracts at 60$ but no data whatsoever.

I can easily get exceed 500 mins on my phone every month. And my 64 yr old mom who's under my plan just clocked 635 minutes last month lol.

Getting into a contract in the last couple years has been a BAD idea and incredibly over priced. But you are grandfathered into the goat contract which BTW, to stay in it you need to buy phones at full cost too right? You are basically in the same boat as the month to month brahs because you have to buy the phone at full price and save in the long run.

My plan has unlimited data, but only 5 GB of 4G data, meaning I'd be at 3G if I went over, which is fine with me.

It seriously sounds impossible to use 200 GB of mobile data per month. that guy is gonna have to explain that.

Also, that kills his argument. I'm 100% positive that only 0.0001% of smartphone users use 200 GB of data. Lmao.

One thing to worry about this phone is future/stable software updates


"My issues with the OnePlus One

I just can't get over how weird/bad some of the decisions are that +OnePlus made while designing this thing.

CyanogenMod as the stock phone software? That means you'll be getting the slowest updates in the industry. The usual Samsung+carrier update cycle is about 3-5 months, CyanogenMod typically takes about 6 months to port everything over to the newest version. (A stable 4.4.2 version of CM isn't out yet).
Update: CM Community Manager +Abhisek Devkota says the 6 month mark is "an overstatement" of the time it would take to update. We'll see. =)

The attention to detail is so high that OnePlus claims the the internals are "specially dyed and treated with a matte black finish, with each part meticulously aligned to be visually pleasing and functional," yet when it came time to do that outside (the part people will actually use and see), they recycled the Oppo Find 5 body, complete with a barely-functional menu button? Put your resources where they matter.

The "Smash your phone" promotion. Really? After this: Samsung Galaxy S5 Hammer Smash Fail = Battery Explosion, you're going to encourage people to be violent towards something full of sharp glass, lead, and a highly-volatile lithium ion battery? Do you have any kind of common sense at all?

The terrible, terrible marketing which they could never (and didn't) live up to. #neversettle , except for the lack of SD slot, removable battery, wireless charging, Band 20 LTE, Recent Apps button, and terrible update situation.

The spec sheet and price is nice, but if I were a customer, this string of questionable decisions would make me wary. It doesn't really matter though, because it sounds like no one is actually going to be able to buy one of these things anyway. Oh well."

One thing to worry about this phone is future/stable software updates.

This is from Ron Amadeo who is probably the most respected android analyst.The question about software updates is literally the only valid gripe in that inflated rant. He completely discredits himself as biased with all the other imaginary "issues"(oh no, he didn't like the marketing.. who gives a fuk). And given the One is directly and officially supported by cyanogen, I think it's fair to assume updates will come a lot quicker.

I don't know where he gets off saying they will be the slowest in the industry when most non flagship devices don't even get updates to begin with.

First off good luck even getting one, with their limited supply and invite system

Second wait till people actually get a hold of them, they have great specs but oneplus is a new company there could be issues with defects.

reminds me of the meizu m8 annoucement when the 1st iphone had just come out

Let the exception make the rule. If you're using 200gb a month you have bigger issues at hand
Cool beans. You can't even get a data plan period on verizon for what I'm paying. That's my point. Data usage is irrelevant.

But........You never answered my question. How many GB does your plan give you before you're throttled?

I can use 200 GB of data on my plan without noticing a huge speed drop, as well. I'm not sure what your argument is.....
If I can stream netflix and play on my laptop at the same time what does it matter? Honest answer, I don't know. Again though, wtf does it matter if I can still do those 2 at the same time.

That I'm on verizon with unlimited everything for 50 bucks a month is my point. All because I signed one of them there contracts you are so against. Speaking specifically on the tmobile $30 a month plan mentioned earlier, you will notice a dramatic speed drop once you go over the throttle limit. It auto drops to 3g. Not sure which service/plan you have though.


200gb per month? lmao what the **** do you just sit there and use your phone tethered to everything while watching netflix and downloading torrents all day?

how can you possibly use that much? i use like 5-7gb, and thats cause i stream netflix episodes when i drive to my girls house about an hour away, and the occasional tether for my tablet.
Uhh probably because I hotspot my wifi for everything, you know, exactly what I mentioned earlier. Not sure if srs


This.

It seriously sounds impossible to use 200 GB of mobile data per month. that guy is gonna have to explain that.

Also, that kills his argument. I'm 100% positive that only 0.0001% of smartphone users use 200 GB of data. Lmao.

He must run speedtests 24/7 while streaming 1440p movies and seeding 157 torrents.

Again, you can't get a data plan period on verizon for what I'm paying for unlimited everything(to my knowledge). If you barely use your phone and live in a major city all these random cheap month to month plans are fine. If you don't live in a major city and want good service, you need verizon



You brahs can argue what ever you want though. I was a retard and signed a contract. Now I'm a retard with unlimited everything paying a super cheap rate.

No offense, but you sound like you don't know much about this subject. I may be wrong, but it seems that way.


My plan has unlimited data, but only 5 GB of 4G data, meaning I'd be at 3G if I went over, which is fine with me.

How many GB does your plan give you before you're throttled? Nobody has truly unlimited LTE speeds, unless you're with that weird Sprint plan.

He's grandfathered into a plan at Verizon, therefore there is no throttling. If I were him I'd stay on that contract until death. It's probably the best price you can get in America. I'm paying over $100 for 3GB of data and unlimited talk/text and I feel pretty cheated.

Would be cool/10 but never see it happening.
I bought my mum a low end Nokia phone a year ago (620 i think), and although the display/camera are quite average, its a very solid built phone. The buttons are very tactile and haven't gone spongy (same cant be said for my Galaxy Nexus (Samsung)).
