Watch the OnePlus One take on the Nexus 5 in a boot speed battle
The OnePlus One became official on Wednesday, and all that is left today is a minor little contest between the stock Android sporting Nexus 5 and the CyanogenMod packin' OnePlus One. The battle was a boot speed race between the two handsets that was captured on video. The stock Android Nexus 5 is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, while the OnePlus One offers a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU under the hood.

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.
