Wondering where it lacks the punch? Well, there are a couple of them – primarily the non removable battery and no microSD slot which means no expandable memory space. Accompanying them is poor call quality and extremely gesture sensitive – leading to apps getting activated at the slightest touch.
Wish to compare it with its counterparts? There are quite a few of them – beginning with Google Nexus 5 – slightly overpriced with less RAM and inferior camera, Motorola Moto X – undoubtedly expensive with features not that impressive, Nokia 1520 is a good contender along with its powerful camera but for those mobile geeks, the OnePlus One promises to be a challenging mobile to lay their hands on.

But the freedom to explore and tweak the OS and home screen features is very much engaging for avid techies and hence can go for it. Available exclusively at Amazon, do make a rush for it before it vanishes.
