OnePlus One 64GB Android Lollipop review

OnePlus One is a vivacious phone that offers you all the features that we would basically want in a standard phone. The best part of this phone is its design – you just cannot get over its super-sleek and flat design. In this aspect, perhaps, it is better than many other phones.

Now let us come to the core features. At present, OnePlus is based on the Android v4.4 KitKat OS. Having the latest Android upgrades, it works to make it easier for you to access it. The body itself is graspable and light in weight. The phone works on a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad core Processor. So the phone runs all the applications, videos and data very smoothly.

One of the special features of this phone is its 13 mega pixel camera. The camera has dual LED flash and encompasses all the latest features like Geotagging, face detection, touch to focus, panorama and HDR. There is more than 1080p video support in this phone. The camcorder function is probably the best feature it has. The screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 feature, and with the LTPS technology, the screen practically comes alive to give a visual experience which only a very few phones can give.

Now if you are to watch videos and listen to music, you would need a powerful battery support. This feature seems to have been well taken care of by the makers. They have provided with a boastful 3100 mAh battery to support its functioning all day long. Not only that, the battery is even backed up by CABC and DRAM technologies. This means that this phone will distinguish between static and dynamic content and by itself make the battery consumption slower or faster according to that.

This phone is arguably one of the finest phones in the market. If you want a sleek design, clear picture, high battery power, this is the phone you should have. But the best thing is that this phone is about to become better. OnePlus has been developing its own Android v5.0 Lollipop ROM for quite some time now. This means all the features will now be taken to a next level.

It has recently launched Alpha ROM which is now ready to download for all its users. This ROM, as reported, looks pretty much similar to the Android Lollipop on all the Nexus devices. If you are currently using Alpha ROM and if you find any bugs while updating your version then you can look at video tutorials to find the fix.

OnePlus is one of the fastest gadgets you will ever use. It is currently launched in India but with invites only. The 64GB version is sandstone black in color and definitely has the Alpha ROM installed in it. This is the first chance to get your hands on Android Lollypop since OnePlus has now officially announced that it will replace the Cyanogen OS which was previous used in the handsets. This new version is priced at 21,999 INR.
