The OnePlus One's AnTuTu benchmark score puts it at the top of the hill, ahead of the Galaxy S5 and the rest

The OnePlus One's AnTuTu benchmark score puts it at the top of the hill, ahead of the Galaxy S5 and the rest
China-based OnePlus -- a company founded by former Oppo VP, Pete Lau -- is still very much in its infancy, but it has already managed to get international media buzzing. With no gigantic marketing budget, and no serious backing behind it, the company has managed the feat by aiming high and keeping fans on their toes with constant teasers. 

In the words of OnePlus, the One will be a true no-compromise device with high-end hardware and looks that rival those of Apple's iPhone. And while we haven't seen the device itself just yet, we already know pretty much every major component that will be powering the OnePlus One. Judging from those, OnePlus isn't joking around , and a new screenshoot of the One's AnTuTu benchmark score corroborates that notion. Posted on the company's CEO Weibo handle, the score of 38,179 points goes beyond what even the latest flagships on the market have managed. The Galaxy S5, for example, managed "just" 36,603 in our testing.

That's not surprising, though, seeing as the OnePlus One's Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AC, clocked at 2.5GHz, is the most potent chipset Qualcomm has on the market, and literally. The AC part at the end recognizes the fact that this is, indeed, the highest bin of the silicon slinger's most powerful Snapdragon to date. What's more, the OnePlus team is prepping the One with 3GB of RAM. 

With all this information in mind, we feel it's safe to say that as far as performance goes, the OnePlus One is poised to honor its promise of no-compromise experience, at least on paper. As it turns out, the camera department is looking promising, too

The OnePlus One is expected to launch on April 23 and cost "under 350 euros".

This phone is starting to be overrated . Hopefully once launched it'll not dissappoint.

I'm a smart phone enthusiast like everyone else here... We read about all these awesome great phones from China all the time. They are never released in the good old USA.

What about Apps? Do they plan on using a version of Google play like Amazon?

Good price, good camera, good spec and good looking, Any company with those "4 goods" is sure going to be a big hit.

Samsung is missing the good looking good quality department for years and it kicks ass. Its all about marketing and gimmicks. Something no other company has as much as Samsung does. Whats one + one going to do when its marketing budget it smaller than dying HTC?

That's easy. With affordable price tag, they might have a chance to grab a decent share of market in China. A decent share in China could help you make a lot of money :D

Samsung lacks good looking, but always have the best specs and the best cameras(among android), and as you said, the best marketing

32. engineer-1701d unregistered

look at htc marketing really the worst commercial ever if they put a 8up camera then it would have been better even without the 2nd camera, at that price people will flock to the phone if its easy to find and they do the right thing on a single commercial show whats faster and better than all the rest, 1 commercial saying big batttery big camera great build in not to big of a package with 3 g ram and good sound speakers for the low price will have every android user buying one as a main or a kids or back up unit for that price and if carriers (t mobile) recognize and jump on it boom millions of people in the usa will buy and also around the world, if the phone cost 200-250 to make doubles profit and we have our next big phone maker and put the ceo name and recognition who he is people will buy.

There is one thing that hurts HTC. At the heat of smartphone race, they released the HTC One X on AT&T. It was a beautiful device and a lot more people would have pick one up if it wasn't only for AT&T. Then they came out with HTC DNA for Verizon and somewhat different look of HTC One X for Sprint... At that point, you are talking about 3 different phones that should have been one. On the other hand, Samsung came out with Galaxy S3 for all four carriers in the U.S. Fast forward to today, Samsung have became the household name for Android smartphone and on par with Apple in the popularity department in their own OS. (well... only iPhone runs on iOS, but you know the point haha). Now, an average consumer would be more like to pick up a Samsung device simply because that's the one brand that he/she has heard a lot of. Average consumers would go with something that they are more comfortable with. We, phone geeks, on the PA daily are a whole different animals. We do care about every aspect of the phones. We research, we compare, then we decide what phone is more suitable for us. However, we are the small percentage in the real world.... I hope other companies start to gain more share and have more money to make more awesome phones for us to look forward to :D

I am really surprised there has not been one single leak of what this thing might look like. They must keep a pretty tight ship over there. Good for them. But the big question will be this. Even though they have spent next to nothing on marketing, word spreads fast. If it is the low cost hit we all hope it will be, it seems unlikely they will be able to keep up with demand. Even the Nexus 5 had its fair share of shortages, and that was made by big time manufacturer LG. I guess we will see when this thing actually goes on sale.

As if this phone didn't already seem too good to be true! :)

But that's exactly the issue I have with it. When a phone seem too good to be true it normally is! So I will wait for formal reviews before I make up my mind.

But that is usually when the rumor mill is what you are basing the assumptions on. These are usually official inside information releases so probably way more reliable.

Plus its cyanogenmod rom. So this is indeed the king of the hill when it comes to software experiences.

Nah, CM is bascially pure AOSP which is kinda boring compared let say PA, let alone the TW experience. But the support will be great though.

You sir have never tried cyanogenmod, Have you? I had similar thoughts that cyanogenmod were vanilla rom. I wont explain everything just Watch some videos on youtube and read some articles about CM. It just looks like vanilla, but in reality its far more functional and versatile/customisable than ugly touchwiz with all root functions. Also CM is far more battery and performance efficient than touchwiz or vanilla.

P.S. Also most custom roms including Paranoid android (and majority of android dev community) use CMs source code for development to build over. So please respect them dont call it boring.

CM is usually buggy. And yes, I've been using it for years.

Yeah my exynos powered s2 had some serious issues but i found an unofficial 11 which is better than official. But this is an exynos trait. My snapdragon powered nexus 7 and moto G have very small ignorable bugs which i'm sure will be solved once it hits stable phase.

Yea but that was what they were making for free without any real reward or funding. Even with that they accomplished so much, they probably can destroy the competition with actual incentives and backing.

I might consider this over the Oppo Find 7a.

You are wrong Mr.dick One Plus is better value

Well if the camera is good than it does since that was literally the only downside to the nexus 5 (6 months ago).

but nexus 5 has only 2 GB of RAM & 2300 mAh. And its cheap price is only for the U.S.
