    On my crappy HTC One X I'm settling for many, many things. These include: choppy performance, abysmal battery life, subpar picture quality (admittedly when I was on Sense the back camera was pretty good but in CM it's quite poor), terrible front-facing camera quality, poor design in terms of cameras (the rear camera pokes out making it more susceptible to scratches and the front camera is indented so collects dust like Apple collects souls), poor use of ram (MY OG Nexus 7 also has 1gb of ram but its multitasking is far superior) and finally terrible support from the chip manufacturer (nVidia)

    I have a HTC One XL. HTC stopped updating it past 4.2, so I'm currently running the CM11 nightlies. The tradeoff is that HTC's ImageSense chip (which is responsible for a lot of the image processing) has some proprietary code embedded in the Sense framework and hence is not included in CM11. This means that I have to live with a sub-par camera.

    Edit:
    @Michael156, it seems that we have the same gripes about the HTC One X/XL:D

    Do I "need" a new device? Nope. Still chugging along with a 2+ year old (international) Galaxy Note1. If the OnePlus One doesn't live up to the prerelease noise, I'll keep looking. On the surface, this looks like a great "bang for your buck" device. I'll let the bleeding edge types kick it around the block before I lay down my money for one. I'm getting too old, and hopefully wiser to fall for false promises.

    Love my Nexus 5.

    Best device I've ever owned in my Android life (OG Droid --> HTC Incredible --> Samsung Fascinate --> Galaxy Nexus --> GS3 --> Nexus 5). Love the hardware and the overall experience.

    What am I settling on?

    1. Camera. The camera is good/great, but not as good as I was hoping for. I get a lot out of the camera because I know how to use it to play to its strengths. But as a general point and shoot, it's pretty weak. From what we've seen so far, it looks like the OPO might have the best camera on the market.
    2. Battery life. Uhg, 2300 mah. Why Google? Why? I average about 16-18 hours a day on this battery, which is not terrible, but not nearly what I want out of a phone. I want to be able to hammer on my phone all day and have 30% left when I drop it on the charger at 11pm. I'm really hoping the 3100 mah in the OPO will get me there.

    With my N5? Battery life, weak speakers, not so great camera. That being said for the price I can't really complain, it's a great device.

    At the time, it was pretty much a 'never settle' device, although it was thicker than the others. One of the first dual-cores, the first phone with a higher ppi than Apple's Retina (720p in a 4.3" display), 1 whole gigabyte of RAM. Now it's old and it doesn't run CM11 very well.

    well to say the truth optimus g is good in matter of response and speed but as a tech enthusiastic and some times reviewer i usually buy to test at first and later move on to a newer device ,my usually use time is around 6-8 months a thing that i wish to change if one+one will leave to keep its promises :)

    Am using LG Flex, best phone I used so far but I settled for the camera quality, external speaker and the thickness of the phone.

    I too have a Samsung Galaxy S3. It's a decent phone that is showing it's age. What I'm settling for is:
    - Lack of LTE
    - An older Snapdragon processor.
    - A smaller screen than my older eyes would prefer.
    - Battery life.
    - Killer specs.
    - Physical home key. I hate that Sammy doesn't go with capacative or on-screen buttons.
    - Aesthetics... SGS3 is pretty bland.

    From what I can see, the OnePlus One solves just about all of those problems.

    I had been using an old nokia for the last 6 years. After my house burn down I upgraded to a nexus 5. I'm not happy with the camera or battery life.
