[Update 05.05.2014] OnePlus goes back a step and deviates from the “smash”contest. The Chinese Start-Up companies, it no longer requires it own Smartphone be destroyed, to get a OnePlus one. You can donate it but.
Critics hailed on OnePlus after it published the “smash”contest. These are the following: to a OnePlus one for $1 to get, you should destroy its own Smartphone by video evidence. This is not any Smartphone, you should choose from a list of current equipment. IPhone 5 S, the Galaxy S5, the Xperia Z2 or the HTC one (M8) were included among other things. An unnecessary waste of resources. Instead it now offers the alternative, to donate the cell phone. The equipment can be donated but only to Medic mobile. Medic mobile is a company that is active in developing countries in the health sector, helps in the diagnosis of diseases with mobile devices of the population and gathers patient data via SMS.
What do we know at all by the OnePlus one? Out of nowhere, a Start-Up company was founded several months ago, its first Smartphone called “Flagship killer”. The rationale for the name is that it delivers high-end specs for a low price. But how can a new company, the Smartphone OnePlus one in the 64 GB version for only $349 market while the competition requires double the price? The question can be answered with one word: oppo.
Oppo is the company which stands behind OnePlus one. You should not be surprised, as much on it. To first of all is the founder and head of OnePlus in the game: Pete’s former employer has been LAU oppo electronics. Secondly, oppo is used as the sole shareholder of OnePlus. Thus one can no longer speak of an independent company, as Pete LAU in the public stressed. A third reason for the dependency of oppo is the similarity between the OnePlus one and the oppo find 7. The specs as well as the design are similar to the two smartphones. The reason for the similarity is that both products at the same factory are made.
We look at both units us. The processor is the same. Both manufacturers are relying on an Qualcomm Snapdragon of 801 with a clocking of 2.5 GHz. The memory includes 3 GB, like with the Sony Xperia Z2. OnePlus uses 11s in the operating system the CyanogenMod developed specially for the one. Here comes Android 4.4.2 used. Oppo is here only on Android 4.3 with its own interface ColorOS. Also on the subject of memory, mother and daughter companies go different ways. The OnePlus is offered with 16 or 64 GB without a memory expansion via microSD card. The find 32 GB internal memory, which can be expanded via microSD card up to 128 GB 7 However comes with a. Both devices is 5.5 inches tall, but it will find 7 with 2560 x 1440 pixel delivered. Here is one “only” full HD available. This is but not as bad as manufacturers such as Sony, Samsung or HTC in their champions also set 1920 x 1080 pixels. The human eye can not distinguish between the two resolutions, and the battery power should not be forgotten also in a 2K-Auflösung.
Also when the camera is the same way: there are 13 MP camera by Sony as the main camera used and a 5 MP front-facing camera to record ‘Selfies’ or Skype discussions. The OnePlus one has a slightly larger battery and 3,100 mAh, instead of 3,000 mAh as the find 7. For this purpose one has at the 7 find the possibility to take out the battery. Not quite high-end at the OnePlus one is placing on Bluetooth 3.0, rather than 4.0. Not the latest Wi-Fi standard “ac” is also supported.
Although some differences emerge between the two champions, much resembles but. Why oppo double track rides, is easy to explain. Oppo is an established Smartphone manufacturer in China, but the top models are not very successful in Europe and North America. That’s why the project of OnePlus started probably, that sounds not Chinese and seems to be otherwise successful. Also when performing questionable marketing strategies, to create a certain resonance. How much this product is rough up the established smartphone market, may emerge in the next few months. What do you think of the OnePlus One?
