Will the OPO be Android's flagship?

    Who is denying the value offered by the OnePlus One? It's a decent phone at a good price. A commodity item for conspicuous consumers.

    The OnePlus name/brand has ZERO value in the marketplace, though.

    Similarly, a Star Wars action figure from the 70s may sell for hundreds, but a week's worth of groceries could cost considerably less. Price is more of the intersection point between supply and demand, but the very fact that people have strange and unpredictable wants is what detaches price from value.

    Oppo Find 7 will be *the* phone if they manage to release it prior to the LG G3.

    Quite possibly so....Both companies have made excellent devices in the past year.

    Well I think the only thing that will change the industry is if googles project Ara comes out. Then upgrading and buying 3rd party modules is in our hands. No more buying a whole phone to upgrade. If one module is too much then another company is probably making a different one. The future is not opo. Its just another phone. Its a good phone for the price.

    I was thinking between One M8 and OPO too. But I really like the great effort and price point OPO has brought to the market. Only sad thing was the microSD.

    I think that's completely possible, and hope that it proves to be true. Swapping out your RAM module for an upgrade, just like you do with a laptop, would be awesome. I just hope that whatever gets released doesn't get branded as the "Lego phone," and wind up selling poorly as a result.

    Flagship is a subjective thing, alot of people think the Android Flagship is the Nexus 5 because its Google's official Dev platform device, gets the latest updates first, runs Android as Mat Duarte conceived it...Even though it might not have to best specs...

    Well I'm sure when the first iPhone came out there was hesitation but that totally changed the mobile world, but seeing as apple is no longer innovated I think Google can accomplish this and change things again.

    Just saying something is going to be great doesn't actually mean anything. Until the device is in the hands of enough people to actually put it through the paces it may as well not exist at all.

    The software features that handset manufacturers add to distinguish their devices are not only usually unneccesary, they're also ignored. Engadget and CNET have both posted articles about the degree to which Galaxy users wholly ignore Samsung apps and features. The Nexus 5 is excellent in no small part because there's so little junk cluttering up the user interface.

    I think no. This device isn't pure Android whatsoever, it's runover with CyanogenMod 11S. I think an Android Flagship device would be anything that is a Google Play Edition or fully Android. The OnePlus One maybe the Flagship for OnePlus but it may not be the flagship for Android because it is not "pure" Android.

    Also sadly true. If some news story breaks six months from now about the OnePlus making male users sterile, then no amount of features or price inducements will save the phone or the company.

    Yep and all we know about how the opo is from some reviews which aren't from the final version from what I have read. Only 20 more different countdowns till opo is in more people's hands.
