Offer a display of quality at a price is difficult, but it is more one of the latest models of Qualcomm as main hardware. In fact, the OnePlus One was brand new with Snapdragon 800, but well studying what was moving in the market, they decided to place an 801.
In a terminal that costs us 375.99$, having the same internal hardware that main phones Samsung or LG, it says enough. But you have to be more specific, as the available versions of the Snapdragon 801, we have the most powerful: MSM8974-AC, quad-core 2, 2.45 GHz, and GPU Sandy 330 578 MHz.
The other point that few phones equal is the memory, the One dares with 3GB of RAM. Maybe it is not the specification to which more profitability you can get right now, but it is a guarantee for future system upgrades, and to have it vented. The other, the storage memory, arrives with its good and bad part. The bad, that there is no way to expand it – Yes in the Oppo Find7a – good, opt for the 64GB model is quite affordable, provided to see units available.
The performance is as expected benchmarks, games, navigation, or with a demanding phone use. More soft and loads faster than any phone on their price. But not everything is perfect, Cyanogen is doing a job of optimization, and the phone is still in an initial moment of development, with elements to Polish and improve the system (at the time of the analysis became a major update, and this week will be another).
Many will also appreciate the possibilities of personalization in details hardware of CyanogenMod, entering profiles that allow us to play with the balance between power and battery, with details such as touching the CPU speed. Finally, we are also to a phone with connectivity for LTE, some ending to round the proposal, and that in the past could be a problem in the choice of a Chinese phone. Testing the phone in our networks, I have not had any problem in normal conditions, with a performance similar to the of iPhone 5.
Other supported connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG, WiFi 802.11b/g/n/ac, GPS/GLONASS and NFC. Some cast lack the FM radio. Turning to an appearance as the audio, we have a system of triple the external noise-canceling microphone. With respect to volume in calls, our voice becomes high and clear to the receiver, but I have the feeling that there are to fix something in the software for the volume of us comes to us.
In terms of their autonomy, we could talk about being in the line of their size/power, and standard on phones with the same hardware. I think it is a paragraph which Cyanogen can still improve enough with optimization and tools to manage the consumption of resources. Meanwhile, we can play with the basic settings to extend the life: disable connectivity, lower brightness, remove or unnecessary notifications.
The use I give to phones is not precisely simple, especially in what regards notifications, and at the end of the day often me a battery 5. Another issue is when I’ve been testing the camera, photo, and video – 4 k – or spending more time account benchmarks and demanding games, where it is normal that the battery is consumed quickly. If we liked the design, the quality of construction and the screen, in terms of power and autonomy, we were more than satisfied. We believe that until they do not begin to appear with the 805 Snapdragon phones, OnePlus One Smartphone is the very best that we can find in phones.
