    Story of a Bacon

    Where to begin?

    Ahh, it all started with a bacon. And it was something new. The way it was presented was like... wow.
    I have read a story about a phone that could be in par with flagships. In some parameters it will beat them. That sounded really catchy. Will it come true?

    It was 2014. The invite system came alive but the phone was not available for my country. In 2015 this situation changed by open sales Tuesdays. It was that opportunity what made this happen. I ordered my one and only Oneplus phone - the One.
    Waiting..., the days were so long. And then a phone call from DHL made my day.

    Uhm that box 😍​
    The touch response of sandstone back was amazing😍.
    The battery life was cool.
    The red flat charging cable was innovative.

    The One replaced my former music player. It was my emergency and backup camera. It started to be my browser and window to the Oneplus Community.

    Years passed and an accident happend. On a trip to USA my Canon camera was damaged by famous US cola drink.
    Since this moment the Oneplus One became my primary / only camera. And it served exceptionally.
    Take a look on Travel Blog "Shotononeplus" USA 2017 - my travel photos made by the Bacon.

    I think it captured a lot of nice memories.
    The camera has also some weaknesses I just ignored it because i know the capabilities.

    Years passed, the battery degraded and I've replaced my One with Pocophone F1.
    It started to be my daily driver but not my photo gear - here the former could still capture better photos. The Poco could mostly beat it only in the night.

    I have made a blind video comparison. It is a mix of photos made this year with both phones. Take a look:

    You are a judge now. Tell me a verdict.
    Do you have a photo you like in the video?
    Make a screenshot and comment below.

    Looking forward.

    Do I really have to pick one? Think most are awe-struck pictures. Wonderful. Awesome Tibi. Love the golden fields and mountain backdrops.

    Great thread Tibi, as many say. The best camera is the one with you. The shooter makes the difference in most cases!

    Remember that time well OP :)

    Still using my Oneplus One as my one and only phone - other than battery life, still works and does what it says on the tin.

    Can't justify double the cost of what i paid for the One to upgrade it, so it'll be my only phone till it dies - hehe.
