OnePlus One vs Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy S5 vs One (M8) size comparison: one affordable biggie

OnePlus One vs Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy S5 vs One (M8) size comparison: one affordable biggie
The unveiling of the OnePlus One just dropped a bombshell on the big names in the mobile industry with a $300 phone that carries the specs of a $600 handset from a major manufacturer, and then some. It's still a huge 5.5" handset, though, which won't be to the taste of everybody, so we are pitting its chassis against some of the major competitors below to help you grasp the true dimensions of the OnePlus One.

First off, that leaked picture of allegedly the 5.5" OnePlus One hiding beneath a 5" Xperia Z1 didn't pan out. The phone is larger than both the Z1 and the Z2 in height and width, and, at 0.35" (8.9mm), it's a bit thicker than most flagships, too. What the folks from OnePlus have done very well, however, is the heft part - with 5.71 oz (162 g), their magnesium-clad handset weighs as much as 5" phones with premium glass or metal chassis, like the Z2, or the HTC One (M8).

If you are into big-screen handsets, you won't be disappointed by the OnePlus One's dimensions, as they are in sync with its 5.5" display frame. When it comes to one-handed operation, however, the sizable 2.99" (75.9mm) width makes it impossible to reach the upper left or right quadrant of the screen with your thumb only, unless you are Shaq, of course. When we take a look at the 5.2" G2 below it becomes even clearer that the OnePlus One is a pretty large handset, crossing into the phablet realm. Thus, if size is of concern to you in terms of portability and pocket comfort, you are only likely to be swayed by the amazing value-for-money proposition that comes with the OnePlus One. What do you think, can you stomach the phone's dimensions at this breakthrough $349 price point for the 64 GB version?

Galaxy s5 size is a perfect fit, with the lightest of all, period

+1 to that but still somehow when you take price into consideration One plus is the clear winner.

Your move Nexus.

Nexus already made a move. The move is not to make a phone that's so big it doesn't fit comfortably in the pocket or hand.

I was really dissapointed when the S5 was unveiled, but after I read its reviews I was really impressed. The display, UI, fingerprint scanner... The build quality is nice too, plus the leather faux is sexy and pleasant to hold (as per reviews). 2 gigs of RAM is enough too. There are many flagships with high highs than the S5 but none with less flaws. Other flagships flaws are mainly display, camera and UI.
IMO the S5 is the better phone of 2014 (till now).

The 2011 Galaxy Note was 147 x 83 x 9.65 mm
Now basically all flagships are as same tall as Note

I hope the Nexus 5 (2014) is still ~135 x 70 mm (preferably ~130 x 70 mm)

* Water and Dust resistant with removable back cover 'toys'

Not to mention much less slippery and better ergonomic with less bezel 'toys'

That bezel isn't hugely smaller.. I have man hands so I can handle it plus I'm used to holding bigger things ;). They all look like the same damn phone other than the m8.. sorry but other than camera there is nothing that I find appealing about any of the Korean phones. I've NEVER had a dust issue so that's laughable and isn't a great example of a feature.

Fantastic specs & price, but way too wide, hopefully this will encourage others to release high spec phones at a cheaper price.

This also shows how cheap memory is the price difference between 16gb & 64gb is so small.

Too huge for me. Waiting on Z2 compact or the next Pureview Phone, if under 5 inches, for god´s sake.

Realability and functionality I'll go with Z2 and S5. But price is a killer choice here. This will up the competition of flagship phones.

With Cyanogen on board, this phone should remain updated for quite some time. I hope this phone is a hit with the phablet crowd, so they will make a smaller phone, in the 4.5-5" range, with similar specs.
