OnePlus One vs Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy Note 3: specs comparison
'Never Settle!' That's the motto of OnePlus, the new Chinese smartphone producer that aims to revolutionize the market by offering top-notch quality at a way more affordable price than what's currently the norm. Kind of like what Google's trying to do with its Nexus line. OnePlus' offering, however, differs from a typical Nexus by coming in a more of a phablet form-factor, due to sporting a massive, 5.5" display.

Besides the imposing screen diagonal, however, the OnePlus One can offer a variety of other exciting goodies, too. For example, it's going to feature the cutting-edge Snapdragon 801 AC processor, a 13 MP camera, 3 gigs of RAM, and a juicy 3100 mAh battery. In short, the One by OnePlus is going to be a dream come true for every smartphone geek, especially when you consider it's extremely affordable price of $299 for the 16 GB version, and $349 for the 64 GB version! Now that's what we call an excellent offer!

So, now that we know that the OnePlus One is going to be way cheaper than other flagships out there, let's also take a closer look at exactly how it measures up against some of its future rivals, when it comes to features and specs. What you'll find below is our specs comparison with the OnePlus One, Sony Xperia Z2 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but if you want to see how it stacks up against the Galaxy S5 and the One (M8), head this way!
