The OnePlus One is a battery-friendly beast

The OnePlus One may be a tough find for smartphone buyers, but the phone apparently performs great in the wild, with Phone Arena revealing the flagship #NeverSettle phone is capable of offering impressive battery life. In its battery tests, the OnePlus One came in second, lasting only five minutes less than Sony’s Xperia Z2, and significantly longer than other flagship devices from the competition, including the Galaxy S5, the G3 or the HTC One (M8).

You still can’t buy a OnePlus One, but here comes the OnePlus Two

The OnePlus One is a very interesting, and quite affordable, fresh Android flagship smartphone – if you’re able to buy one that is – but the company may already be working on at least one new Android device. Famed leaker @evleaks revealed that a OnePlus Two model may already be in the works, codenamed “Lettuce.” The company’s only Android product to date is known internally as “Bacon,” according to the same leaker.

OnePlus One Release Date

This is the only way you can buy the world’s most exciting Android phone

This is the only way you can buy the world’s most exciting Android phone

For hardcore Android fans, no smartphone on the planet is more exciting and intriguing than the OnePlus One. Based on CyanogenMod software, the One is powerful, affordable and probably more tweakable than any other Android phone on the market. It’s also practically impossible to buy. OnePlus is a small company and it’s simply not equipped to handle the demand among Android enthusiasts for its new phone. In an effort to manage all of that demand, OnePlus is currently offering 2,500 invites to purchase a OnePlus One.

If you thought getting one was going to be easy, however, think again. More →

Don’t dunk the OnePlus One in water, no matter what you see on YouTube

The OnePlus One has taken on a mythical quality, mostly due to the fact that it’s almost impossible to buy, but there are some very real limits to its perceived powers. Android Police has noticed that there’s a new video making its rounds on YouTube that shows the OnePlus One being dunked into a few centimeters of water and held there for a little more than 10 seconds before being pulled out completely unscathed. Although this video, which now has more than 50,000 views, seems to suggest that the OnePlus One is waterproof, the reality is that it’s not. More →

This is why you still can’t get your hands on the OnePlus One

In-depth video review shows you all of the OnePlus One’s best features

We’d love to review the OnePlus One ourselves… except the device is almost impossible to come by and even one person who thought that he’d gotten one only wound up with an empty box. However, Marques Brownlee has been lucky enough to get his hands on this semi-mythic device and he’s just posted a thorough video review showing off the OnePlus One’s best features. More →

The OnePlus One invites will soon start rolling out

The “Never Settle” Android smartphone has an exciting price and even more interesting specs, but OnePlus doesn’t appear to have what it takes to meet the impressive demand, or at least not for the time being. That’s why the company is using an invite system, which will be the only way to buy a OnePlus One handset for now. The company on Saturday announced that it’s finally ready to roll out the first “major batch of invites,” although it did not provide an actual release date, saying the invites are coming “soon.” More →

OnePlus One Price $300

Here’s why the OnePlus One only costs $300 despite having killer specs

Here’s why the OnePlus One only costs $300 despite having killer specs

How can OnePlus sell the 16GB version its OnePlus One flagship phone for just $300 off contract despite featuring killer specs that include a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM? Well, assuming that the phone exists and isn’t just an empty cardboard box, it seems to be because OnePlus has decided to forgo both a big marketing budget and profitability for the time being. In an interview with TechRadar, OnePlus CEO Peter Lau said that his company is “selling the phone at cost” and is relying on word-of-mouth and interaction with its community of fans to help promote the device.
