OnePlus One Day One Impressions

    NovaShadowX , Sep 5, 2014 :
    Backstory: My previous phone is a BLU Dash 5.0 and I needed desperately to upgrade. And when I saw my invite I was fully ready to get it and switch. The OPO seemed like a super Nexus 5 both cheaper and more powerful than most phones. But the OPO was even better in specs. I generally don't like Phablets because they tend to be uneven in weight or too large to handle. But this is an exception for its quality and price its just to irresistible.

    Time to arrive:
    My phone arrived in about 5 days, but that's probably because of labor day.
    Box: The phone was fine but the sim-card remover and the charger cable were out of place.
    Feel: The black sandstone feels more like that of a peach more than sandpaper.
    Screen: Screen seems to be in perfect shape with no dead pixels or yellowing yet, and switching from a 480 x 854 display to a 1920 x 1080 feels like I am holding my HDTV in my hand. Pixels can only be noticed if you put the phone right on top of your eye.
    Battery: Received at 33% and used moderately to heavily with WiFi on and with brightness between the max at 33% and switched it to min at about 8%. I have been using it for about 4 hours.
    Speed and Performance: The Snapdragon 801 makes everything buttery smooth but then again the only games I have played so far have been Swing Copters, Tetris, and Snake.
    Camera: Seems to take decent photos in both low light and day time. I also have to mention that the picture quality is set to 90% out of the box. You can change it yourself to set a higher quality. I find anything above 4K UHD drops in frame-rate miserably.

    I have not tested out all features nor have I tried data speeds or call quality yet.

    Overall day One: Very good.

    More to come
