What Is The OnePlus One

There has been so much hype in the news recently about the OnePlus One smartphone but what is it?

Many are calling this new phone the ‘2014 flagship killer’ due to it’s flagship specs but very very affordable price tag. The OnePlus One is the first cyanogenmod phone meaning the One Plus One runs a hacked version of Android 4.4 Kit Kat in the form of Cyanogenmod 11s.

In order to purchase a OnePlus One you must first receive an invite either from their website or from another owner due to low stock however, if you are one of the lucky few that ,manage to obtain an invite then the base model OnePlus One can be purchased for just $229 which will give you 16gb of internal storage and a white, soft-touch finish.

Now, If you are wondering why you have never heard of the company ‘one Plus’ then that’s because it has only been around for about a year however their business philosophy looks very promising.
