OnePlus One review

 

High-end specs with a mid-range price tag - is this bargain handset your next smartphone?

Fantastic price, Big, sharp screen, Fast processor

Patchy 4G, Hard to get hold of, No memory card slot

OnePlus One review

 

At times the mobile market seems like a stalemate between the big players. Every year we see Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG battle it out to make the best, most popular phone of the year - it's like clockwork. But now the OnePlus One is here to shake...

Good screen, excellent value, loads of power on tap, ample battery life

No microSD, 4G doesn't work on all UK networks, pain to buy one, size won't suit all

All in all the OnePlus One is an amazing device for the price. There are a few little issues, but nothing that should stop 99 per cent of people from buying one. It's just a pity actually obtaining one is such a pain - but that almost makes it a more...

OnePlus Power Bank review

 

We really like the OnePlus Power Bank. If it weren't for the shipping costs it would offer excellent value at £13.99, and we know OnePlus One fans will adore its design. You don't expect to find high-end features such as an LCD display and passthrough...

OnePlus One review: Great value phone even with a price hike

 

The One from OnePlus is a high-end smartphone at a mid-range price. It's an Android smartphone running an OS based on 4.4.2 KitKat, with high-quality specifications, but in the UK it retails for just £229 - for now. As of 25 March in response to the...

There are only two, possibly three, bad things to say about the OnePlus One, if you are happy to buy online direct from OnePlus. We wish there was expandable storage, and it's bigger than other smartphones with similarly sized displays. And if we are...

The One from OnePlus is a high-end smartphone at a mid-range price. It's an Android smartphone running an OS based on 4.4.2 KitKat, with high-quality specifications, but in the UK it retails for form just £229. That's around a third of the price of the...

Nexus 5 vs OnePlus One budget smartphone comparison review

 

That is until you pitch it up against the OnePlus One. The One from OnePlus is a high-end smartphone at a mid-range price even lower than that of the Nexus 5. Like the Nexus it is an Android smartphone running an OS based on 4.4.2 KitKat, with...

It's difficult to choose between two phones that offer excellent value, performance and build quality. Both offer access to up-to-date Android. It is currently much harder to get hold of the OnePlus One, and we do marginally prefer the display of the...

OnePlus One review

 

The flagship killer. That's how OnePlus - a fresh Chinese start-up that's suddenly sprung out of nowhere - is pitching its debut £230 smartphone. And boy, does it live up to that pitch. Charging onto the smartphone scene under an ambitious ‘Never...

Dirt cheap for the specs, Excellent build, Powerful but frugal, Big Full HD screen

4G only on some networks, Weak low-light photography, No microSD expansion, Getting into phablet territory
