Startup company OnePlus has unveiled its first Android smartphone. With high-end features and CyanogenMod 11S, the OnePlus One is being touted as the 2014 flagship killer device.

That the OnePlus One claims to be a killer isn’t an overstatement at all. For one thing, this handset boasts 4K video recording with a quality that’s arguably better than the Oppo Find 5 and the Nikon D3100 DSLR camera. In terms of raw performance, the OnePlus One is a speed demon thanks to the quad-core Snapdragon 801 and Adreno 330 running under the hood, along with 16GB or 64GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM. The display itself is magnificent; protected by Gorilla Glass 3, the OnePlus One sports a 5.5-inch display by JDI, with IPS technology and full HD resolution.

OnePlus One Specs

  • Android 4.4 KitKat (CyanogenMod 11S UI)
  • 5.5-inch IPS LCD (1080×1920 Full HD), ~401ppi
  • 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16/64GB internal storage
  • No microSD support
  • 13-megapixel main camera, with autofocus and dual LED flash
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • 3G, HSDPA, LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC
  • GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • Dimensions: 152.9 x 75.9 x 8.9mm
  • Weight: 162g
  • Li-Po 3100mAh battery

If there’s anything lacking in the OnePlus One, it’s the lack of microSD support. But in all fairness, it’s one small sacrifice for the great deal of effort the company has put into the device. Even the exterior design is worthy of respect. With the build made of magnesium, the phone only weights 162g—hence OnePlus is claiming it to be the world’s lighest 5.5-inch smartphone.

The Philippine isn’t among the initial countries to receive the OnePlus One, which is slated to release in major markets in Q2 2014. But we do hope it manages to arrive in our country. The 16GB and 64GB versions will sell for $299 and $350, respectively. Such prices undercut even the Nexus 5!

    Kung sakaling maganda quality ng phone na ito ay maraming sikat na brand ang tataob dito dahil sa presyo. At sana nga mapanatiling mababa ang presyo para ng sa ganon ay iyong mga popular na brand ay mapilitang ibaba nila ang presyo para manatili ang mamimili nila. Sobrang mahal na ang presyo ng mga popular na brand.

  • AyokoSaBobo

    ano pa bang discussion dito? this clearly is a phone for you if you are looking for a flagship but you’re low on budget. high-end? anong specs ba dapat para maging high-end? penta processor? battery dapat ba motolite pero sing nipis ng blade? hahaha. baka nga ganito na kamura yung phone eh wala ka pang pambili eh. hahaha.

  • John

    Simple design, having a 2.5 ghz processor and 3 gb of ram makes it a phone worth buying. It would have been great if it has a waterproofing technology. Nevertheless, it seems very promising…

    • Pendejo

      Puro ka ganyan.. Bumibili ka naman ng mga brand na made in China. Utak Pinoy talaga. Hatak pababa. Isip Talangka.

  • octa

    pekeng gamot na marami na ang nalason, illegal drug pushers/manufacturers na nahuhuli sa mga townhouses ng NBI, illegal immigrants na tsekwa di marunong magtagalog kahit isang salita lang. CDR king pagbili mo sira na. Peke peke peke. Puro pandurugas. Ilang ulit na balita mga empleyado nakalock kaya pag may sunog luto sila sa loob, intsik may ari. sige bili kayo ng OnePlus One.

    • Carl

      Baka pag sinilip mo kung saan ginawa yung device na pinangpost mo baka itapon mo bigla..halos lahat ng electronics ngayon galing china

  • superuncle

    hindi nyo alam ang istorya… sino unang nang espay? magisip ka hindi puro bungangang bading pagpairal mo. kabubuhan. magbasa o manuod ng internetional news hindi puro tsismis ng iba ang paniniwalaan.

    I just want to laugh out loud everytime someone says, ‘Don’t buy this, it’s manufactured in China.’ Get out of your house and explore and see how many things you’re using are actually manufactured in a country other than China. Tsk, typical Filipino.

  • Kris

    I have no problem buying chinese products but in this case, i can’t buy it because i heard there are problems with the network
