Watch the OnePlus One take on the Nexus 5 in a boot speed battle
It would seem that the OnePlus team spent some long nights with the code jockeys at CyanogenMod. Couldn't you just imagine the open containers of Chinese take-out and the pizza boxes lying on the messy desks, while the whiteboards are full of lines and lines of code written out in large black marker? The reason we would imagine that the OnePlus team sidled up to the CyanogenMod team, has to do the way that the OnePlus One boots up so quickly. In fact, you could watch the phone go through the process twice while during the same time, the Nexus 5 has booted up just once.
With an AnTuTu score north of 38,000, the OnePlus One has the looks and the power. The only question is whether or not the phone can be properly marketed. With consumers requiring an invitation to purchase the device, this might seem like an extra inconvenience by those who like to have a quick and seamless experience when buying a new phone.

LOL that is okay, but they already have the quick boot feature on a lot of phones. My padfone infinity has it and it starts in about 3 seconds from complete shutdown.

I only reboot if I have just installed a new xposed mod or if just flashed something

even if you make changes mostly it requires reboot.

Damn that was like a 100 meters sprint race between usain bolt and gareth bayle
38. matistight (Posts: 206; Member since: 13 May 2009)
well that means that gareth bayle had a 90 meter head start because he would be the oneplus while usain bolt is the nexus 5. I timed the full bootup for both phones from the video.
Nexus 5- 22 seconds.
OnePlus One- 25 seconds.

Quick boot. Its like what HTC phones have. (Its like hibernate on windows)

Make sure you watch the entire video. They should do a reboot at the end and it's on pare with the N5. Pretty sure HTC had a hibernate mode, and maybe still does, that would make it appear that a phone booted this quick when it is really just suspended in a deep sleep. When they reboot it takes closer to a minute (I didn't time it) to get to the lock screen.

Props to Cyanogen, he went from one of the most well known Android hackers to producing something this polished and well made. My next device was going to be the Moto 360 but the more I see this phone, the more I'm debating getting it next.

Many phones do this nowadays, HTC have had this feature since at least the One X, it is called Fastboot on HTC phones and can be turned off/on at will. The phone doesn't completely shut down, it only hibernates and therefore will be much faster booting up/down.
11. SellPhones82 (Posts: 565; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
There you go, fastboot is what it was/is called. The Desire Z has this and booted in 4 seconds.
13. PBXtech (Posts: 983; Member since: 21 Oct 2013)
I'm familiar with fast boot. I was talking about the overall package being so well done. Great camera, very large battery, nice screen size, beautiful wood backing, and the very useful Cyanogen tweaks inside. Props to Steve for making a dream come true.

it's not a htc phone, the company name is Oneplus and the phone name is the one.
19. CanYouSeeTheLight (Posts: 910; Member since: 05 Jul 2012)
And where did i claim this was an HTC? I only said HTC had this feature for a long time...

For yucks, I used trinity kernel, over clocked from 2.26 to 2.5 with Qualcomm Dalvik fix.(245mhz overclock)
I scored 38,988 Antutu X on my N5.
801 is simply a better binned 800.
22. wargreymon (Posts: 180; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)
The 801 has better camera bandwidth, but CPU/GPU its just a refined and overclocked 800.
23. AfterShock (Posts: 2944; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
From what I gathered it was just a higher clocked ISP.
So a fsb o/c on a 800 across the board.
I think that was a smoke an mirrors tactic.
Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Ugh, why did this phone have to be so damn big? It's the one thing I can't stand, and the primary reason I'll never own one. Pocket comfort is a must.
14. PBXtech (Posts: 983; Member since: 21 Oct 2013)
New company, I wouldn't be surprised if they release a smaller version later on.
24. SellPhones82 (Posts: 565; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
I'd like to see a smaller version as well. The N5 is borderline too big for me now and the OnePlus One looks to be a lot bigger. Something in that 4.7 to 5 range with the same price point would be ideal. Hopefully these take off so maybe the invite only ordering system will go away. I get why they are doing it but by the time I can get one the N6 will be out.

I think LG did a great job with the G2, the size of it still surprises me that it has a 5.2" screen. It's good to see OEMs going in that direction, better screen sizes but not huge phones.
28. SellPhones82 (Posts: 565; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
Very true, even the leaks on the G3 so a very small increase in overall size, yet a lager screen. All OEMs need to follow that direction, even Apple.

ladies and gentlemen you all are requested to be present at funeral of nexus 5 which was recently found dead under unknown circumstances.... onceplus one is one of the suspect although investigation is on going....
17. Jishnusur (Posts: 73; Member since: 07 Oct 2013)
Well, that is wrong. S5 should be worried! B|
20. greyhulk (Posts: 124; Member since: 30 Jun 2010)
Doesn't matter. Unlike the One+1, you can actually BUY a Nexus 5.
31. Napalm_3nema (Posts: 1269; Member since: 14 Jun 2013)
Yes, but why would anyone want to do that? I couldn't get rid of mine fast enough. It was cheap-feeling junk with awful battery life and a mediocre camera.
25. Heatfan316 (Posts: 453; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
The one+1 is an awesome phone, but I'm really disappointed about it's availability and the fact that it doesn't have an 805 in it. :/

it's fastboot, not boot. HTC also has this feature you liar =DDDDDD
29. rob5150 (Posts: 129; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
watch video until he does a pure "reboot" that is the true time it takes to boot . no quicker than an equally equipped phone
