If all the reports and teasers are to be taken into account, the OnePlus One is set to enter India sooner than you think. And with more and more Chinese handset makers entering the mix, it's no wonder Oneplus would be one of the next in contention.
The OnePlus One is all set to make its Indian debut anytime soon. And already the new is flooded with details of the handset, alongside the new features that we will get to see from one of the most promising Chinese names in the handset business.
As of now, as far as India is concerned, OnePlus will be introducing an India-specific invite system for those looking to order the OnePlus One smartphone in the country. But before you go ahead, here are the 5 intricate features of the phone that you must know about.
The first thing you notice when you hold the OnePlus One is that it's impressively light, while maintaining a solid presence in your hands. And with its 0.35-inch-thick edges and sandpaper-like texture for the back cover, the handset is easy to handle even though it's in the "bigger than 5-inch" category. As far as a comparison in sizes is concerned, the OnePlus one is a little smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus.
The OnePlus One not only feels solid in hand, it's vibrant display and impressive color reproduction is one for the regular movie and YouTube buffs. While the screen is detailed and sharp, playing movies in HD might turn up the ante a bit in favor of the user. In a nutshell, rich viewing experience is guaranteed from this one.
The OnePlus is not offering you any sort of stock Android (it's much to vibrant for that anyway). It is layered with Android 4.4.4 on top of which runs its CyanogenMod Interface. This adds a sharp experience value to it as the user is sure to be enthralled by something that's just fresh out of the oven, compared to the regular Android UI we get to see.
That the phone is layered with the CyanogenMod Interface, makes it a bit secure than the rest. For instance, texts between CyanogenMod users will be automatically encrypted, although depending on how many of your buddies are willing to adopt the interface in the first place. The interface even makes sure that you have ample control over how each of your apps can access your data.
This last one is by no means a small issue. A good battery backup is what all look for in handsets. And since OnePlus has understood the importance of that early on, expect the battery unit in the OnePlus One to last for hours. According to the company, "the energy efficient display features CABC and DRAM (Display RAM) technology that adjust the level of backlight and differentiate between dynamic and static content on your screen."
