The OnePlus One 64GB smartphone was launched last year in June by its Chinese manufacturer OnePlus. It was nicknamed as the “flagship killer” by the tech experts, owing to the premium features it provided at an average price point. OnePlus One still serves as the best smartphone that is available in the market even if its updated versions are launched by its manufacturers. The smartphone delivers powerful performance, which is still at par with the high cost flagship phones that are launched by other manufacturers.
The phone featured with a Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 Chipset torqued with a 2.5 GHz Krait 400 Quad-core processor which works smoothly without any performance issues. The 5.5 inches LTPS LCD capacitive touchscreen provided in the phone produces bright and vibrant colors, while the phone runs on CyanogenMod 12 which gives the users a lot of freedom when using the OS, like Android. The 3100 mAh non-removable Li-PO battery provided in the phone can last for a complete day, even with a heavy usage. The smartphone is available in 16GB and 64GB models, while the storage capacity cannot be increased owing to the absence of Micro SD Card slot in the phone. The 3 GB RAM provided, makes the phone swift in performing operations, like opening apps and playing games. A 13MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera are provided in the phone and the images captured by them are crisp and full of details, High Definition video recording is also done by the phone. The phone looks huge and has a matte like finishing on the back cover, which provides for a firm grip to its users. The phone cannot be used easily by using one hand, as it has large dimensions and is moderately heavy too.
The phone works great with no issues related to its performance and display. The phone plays heavily encoded 1080p videos and high end games, like Asphalt 8, smoothly. The speakers provided in the phone works efficiently and produce loud and crisp sound. There are few negative aspects of the phone and issues like less memory storage capacity and average camera quality are overshadowed by the low budget needed to buy this phone.
