    Yes it is.. you'll get a decent phone who can handle most games/graphics, a lot of updates compared to other brands. Great audio through mic/earphones/speakers, very good screen, good battery & good camera. supports most bands as well.
    I've (had) samsung note3, xiaomi redmi3, cubotx17, iphone 5s, etc, etc..

    I think it would be better to get your dad a LG Nexus 5X because from personal experience the oneplus one is not so good of a device,and is released for about 2 years and one plus one is officially supported for 2 years and the camera on the 5X is better

    Yes, it's still a good phone. But wouldn't it be better to get him a OnePlus Two? The difference in price is 'only' 3K!

    It all depends on your father's demands. I'm guessing he won't be playing games that much, and have his phone for making calls, texting, bit of surfing and photos. In that case he will be happy with it.

    My OPO went to a friend of mine, he's in his mid forties like me. He's very happy with the OPO as I am with the OPX now which could be considered it's smaller sibling.

    But there a are also many good and affordable alternatives these days.

    sold my oneplus 2 few days ago.. it's just a crappy device.. oxygen os makes it a buggy shitty device.. no MM stable update yet.. that beta version is full of bug + affected with overheating & throttling.. SD810 is not good... worst experience ever.. no stable development & the kernel source isn't released yet..

    flashed garaks cm13.. trust me there's no stable custom rom yet bcz of not having the kernel sources.. there are some roms that are usable but more or less those roms also has some serious bugs.

    Yep. It still use it and it still rocks, ofc with a custom rom it's fast, I mean really fast.
    Now I'm running @jgcaap's ROM and I love it, it's even better than the CM's Snapshot.

    I'm using Temasek CM13 and Boeffla Kernel right now. Boeffla Kernel seems as stable as on OxygenOS and fully-featured.
