Engadget is one of the first large sites to review the OnePlus One.

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.

At this point, you really have to wonder why you would want to shell out twice as much for a Samsung or an HTC. Lack of an SD card slot becomes a moot point with the OnePlus One, as the version with 64 GB of storage is only $349. I obviously haven't used it yet, but from all the information that's out there, the OnePlus One and the Find 7/7a really seem to be the best Android flagships of the year.

I feel like a broken record at this point, but if I were Samsung or HTC, I'd be very, very afraid of these Chinese manufacturers.

will crush it.
What's the point exciting about the device when you won't be able to buy it. And even if you jump trough hoops you won't get any warranty making it a riski proposition.
That's one of reasons it's so cheap.

What a smart service provider in european countries could do is to take such oem under its umbrella, but they are too poor in sw developement to really profit from such position.

I guess I'll make my effort to get it anyway. Such a monster with CM oob is just too good to miss.
