The One Plus One is a great compelling phone out there. Even though the One Plus One was initially available to buy with an invite system for one whole year, the good news is that the invite system is now gone forever. It has got an all plastic body but it is sturdy and good-looking. It has got amazing curves, and thus despite the bigger 5.5 inches screen, it fits pretty well in the hands.Third in the list of top 10 Mobiles upto 20000 for 2015. One plus is much popular for the OS on which it was built on – The Cyanogenmod OS. But its beautiful journey to glory with Cyanogen soon ended when it entered India as, Cyanogen decided to break its partnership with One Plus and joined hands with Micromax. But One Plus came back stronger and launched their home-made ROM – The Oxygen OS based on Android Lollipop. The Oxygen OS looks beautiful, is very close to the stock Android UI but has few customizations and many features taken from the CyanogenMod. The performance of the phone is very smooth by virtue of the powerful Snapdragon 801 processor that it has got. Overall, it is fun to use the One Plus One phone as it is the balance of everything. It has got everything like the flagship processor, good design, good and stable software, good cameras, and good battery life, so going for the one plus will be a good one!
