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".

The OnePlus should work with T-mo and AT&T, but I do not think it will be sold via either company. I am pretty sure the OnePlus will be sold independently, kind of like the Nexus and GPE devices you can buy on Google Play.

1. We havent seen the phne, how the fk can you say its very high quality hardware? Samsung has been cheating on benchmarks for years.. 2. You people should chill out calling all this big names for something we haven't seen and we have no idea if its going to be any good at the end.

Doesn't matter, if it falls in line with the S5 then that is all that matters. I want a phone made by enthusiasts not the marketing department of some company and this seems to be the closest thing to that.

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.

I might consider this over the Oppo Find 7a.

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.

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.
