POLL: Are you happy with the dimensions?

?

Are you upset about the OnePlus One's size?

  1. Yes. I actually believed in a smaller body à la Xperia Z1. That's what they promised.

  2. No. I don't mind the Note 3 size.

    Well I think my pocket is the one that is going to decide if it is too big or not. Thanks to you now that I know the dimensions im going to check the Note 3 to have an acurate idea about it.

    Totall
    I totally agree... Not even close tot the size they reported. And this invite system is a complete joke. All they did was make crap ten times more confusing than it needed to be. Just put it on sale and let people buy it. Now we have weeks and weeks wondering if we even get a invite and not know how to? Dumb

    I am not sure how you did your "interpretation", but we can do a little math:
    1) Taking the given resolution (1920 x 1080),
    2) the given diagonal (5.5'') with
    3) the assumption of quadratic pixels
    4) and the outer dimensions of the OPO
    you'll get a border size of 31.14mm for the sum of the top and bottom borders (including the capacitive buttons).

    As a comparison: The same value for my current phone, the Galaxy S2 is: 31.34mm. This is not what I would call an improvement...

    This dimension is fine since we are all getting used to handling "bigger" phone nowadays.

    I on the other hand Love the size of the phone! I have bigger hands, so this would be a fantastic size. Unfortunately, I have Verizon... So I'm out of luck...

    I am slightly upset about the dimensions, but just because Pete said it would be smaller than a Z1.
    But its fine the way it is. A few months ago i nearly settled for a Lumia 1520 because i needed a new phone and that would be even bigger ;)

    Yes, I'm happy with the dimensions and I'm happy with OnePlus One & the OnePlus Team.
    They did a great job.
    One thing more, if a person starts to find negative points, he will find them everywhere. There will not be a single device / product that makes him satisfy.

    I am in the market to buy a phone.. not a phablet. This is what got me excited about the OPO - 5.5" screen in the body of a 5" phone (even if it's a larger 5" phone). I was willing to push a little past the phone category and a bit into the phablet world if 1+ could have delivered this.

    They did not. What they delivered was a device firmly in the phablet category. It is a GREAT phablet at a PHENOMENAL price point. But it is still a phablet and I am still looking for just a phone.

    I'll admit was hoping they were going to follow through with the claim of a 5.5" screen in a 5" body. So while I'm disappointed that didn't happen (Note 3 size really?) doing the math, 5.5" would not work even if the phone was all screen.

    As it looks now, not much different than the Nexus 5. Maybe better components now, but nothing the Nexus 6 won't match later this year.

    That said I'll keep an eye on this experiment.

    + spec/price performance
    - It's a freaking enormous phablet! Two handed handling all the way!
    (Even longer then the 'active'-part of nexus7 screen!)

    Saying that kind of size is not a problem sounds to me like saying "I've seen a video of a guy swallowing a soda-can so why cant you? Don't be a whining *****!".

    For it's enormous size you don't get SD,
    you don't get IR
    you don't get QI- and/or fast-charging
    you don’t get a dedicated camera button
    you don’t get a replaceable battery
    and depending on were you live you might not get your desired LTE-Bands.

    I like the look and I really like the price but what I don’t like is just about every practical aspect of this phone. Sure, if you're 16 and all you do is watch youtube all day then it's great!

    Stuff the above in there and make it a lott smaller, thén you got the ultimate smartphone!
    Now you got an incomplete phablet be it with a nice design and low price.

    I'll still buy it to check it out :D (and support OnePlus to make a better v.2)

    I dont like that they gave us that promise and now failed at the presentation. I mean they started that hype about that perfect Phone and so on. Iam not happy with this, at all!

    The N5's screen:body is 72.28% whereas the OPO is 71.89 - so it's close but the N5's is better :/

    Disappointed with the size I mean it has basically the same footprint as a note 3 but with no stylus. Although the price is astonishing for what you get
