OnePlus One vs Galaxy S5 vs One (M8): specs comparison
There's been quite a lot of noise about the OnePlus One smartphone these past few weeks, and it has all lead to today's announcement event, where, after numerous leaks and teasers, the actual phone was finally unveiled before the eyes of the world. The fledgling Shenzhen-based company, OnePlus, has introduced its pilot smartphone, the One, and what do you know - it is a monster. With a high-quality 5.5" 1080p IPS display, 13 MP camera, and Snapdragon 801 AC, it's a true specs monster, but that's not all there is to it. While the phone seemingly doesn't have any weak spots, it comes with a killer price tag: $299 for the 16 GB version, and $349 for the 64 GB version. And that's actual online, global pricing, not just the equivalent of the Chinese price.

Scheduled for release sometime in Q2, the OnePlus One is going to be priced much more aggressively than all other popular flagships (except for the Nexus 5), that's certain. This alone makes it a very alluring proposition, but it'd also be beneficial if we take the time to acquaint ourselves with the exact features and goodies that are going to make their way in the final product. Better yet, we're going to directly compare those to the specs of some other major Androids that the OnePlus One is destined to go up against: the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8).
