OnePlus One Needs a Better ROM/OS

    Honestly CyanogenMod 11.0-XNPH33R is lacking in so many basic features which is common in most phones
    1. Current CyanogenMod version 11.0-XNPH33R lacks a dedicated media player (relying on Google Play Music...)
    2. Missing inbuilt DHCP certification makes it impossible to stream to home theater unless through 3rd party apps
    3. Surprisingly alarm notification sound cannot be changed, leaving you with the default beep sound
    4. OK Google does not respond when screen is off as promised
    The hardware features of this phone are very good but the stock ROM/OS makes it seem underutilized.
    If there is any ROM with this features I will be more than happy to try them out and hope OnePlus finds a better OS for their phones

    Research sir. you can change the alarm sound. Apollo is the Music Player. comes stock on all CM repo's. As for the Ok Google i have not tried when phone is off. i almost never use it.

    Tried any custom roms? Tried building one yourself?
    What you want in a rom might not be the same as me or anyone else. Android and CM are incredibly customisable...you can have whatever flavour you want...just build your own.
    Now if this was Apple we were talking about I'd have a lot of sympathy

    Get apollo from the play store.

    You can change alarm sounds

    Ok Google from lock screen should be a setting in Google now

    MX player is the baddest. It plays whatever you throw at it. Music and movies.

    Apollo or Power Amp for music. Or a custom rom for more. Try Color OS ;)

    Bubble is a good streaming app, connect very easy and works with mx player.

    I know about all this 3rd party apps which I can install to get somewhere but I expect a stock ROM to have some of the basic features. Also I'm not expecting anything fancy like samsung touchwiz. Remember not everybody is a developer and hope this phone is built for developers as well. I have flashed different ROMs on almost all my phones I have used but the problem here is not everyone knows how.
    I am only posting this thread for the developers to make it easy for the ordinary person who wants to use this phone

    He has a point here. Why does everyone expect here that it is normal to build your one phone software-wise? Of course it is great that OnePlus enables us to do so, but there should be a solid basis for the people that do not want to go through all of that.

    People are buying this phone because of CM being the stock rom.

    But that's none of my business.

    It does have basic features. It sounds like you want features that are over and above the stock android experience. For that you'll need different apps. Not everyone wants all those features and that's how you get bloat.
