Features, Performance, and Reviews for the OnePlus One

The CPU performance of OnePlus One

The 2.5GHz×4(Quad core) processing speed of the OnePlus One is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The OnePlus One has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The OnePlus One has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

OnePlus One's storage capacity

The OnePlus One has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The OnePlus One is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

OnePlus One's size

The OnePlus One is 3.0 inches (75.9 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (152.9 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (8.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the OnePlus One, it weighs about 162 oz (162 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the OnePlus One, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

OnePlus One's screen

The OnePlus One has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the OnePlus One is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of OnePlus One

The OnePlus One has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The OnePlus One comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of OnePlus One

The OnePlus One has a relatively large battery with 3100 mAh. The OnePlus One has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of OnePlus One

The OnePlus One is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
