Engadget Review

For $300, no other phone comes close to what the OnePlus One offers. Not only does it look and feel like a premium device, but it also comes with specs similar to what you'd find in a flagship smartphone. If you want a high-end phone on a budget, look no further.

Pros
  • Great value
  • Fantastic display
  • Premium hardware
  • Top-of-the-line specs
  • Firmware is as customizable as you can get
Cons
  • Minor stutters in processor-intensive tasks
  • Limited availability at launch
  • Low speaker volume
