jcadduono, 14 Nov 2015If Steve and the Cyanogen team are serious about this, they should consider trying out a crowd... moreSaygus is a big scam, just FYI, google the owners, they are local to me and I knew about them before Saygus, just a bunch of crooks.
i wouldn't touch cyanogen with a 60 km pole...the amount of spyware that can be hidden...not a chance.
If Steve and the Cyanogen team are serious about this, they should consider trying out a crowdfunding platform for these phones. I mean, look at the success of this project:
That's a lot of funding for a phone with a Snapdragon 801. I'm sure the Cyanogen team can acquire better hardware than that. Plus, Cyanogen is well known in the phone dev community so we wouldn't be afraid to "donate" towards something that doesn't work. Fully supported by Cyanogen, flagship specs or not, you know you're going to end up with something that will last you a long time and have loads of stable and open development from the community.
I know I'd certainly pick up a bunch of those $75 phones for my family members. Heck, I could make a lot of money reselling cheap unlocked smartphones that work well with no OEM tracking features enabled to my local drug overlords. (okay while it sounds like a good business move I think I'll pass there)
Go Cyanogen team!
lol, 13 Nov 2015That's impossible.Two words, OnePlus One, the first true flagship killer.
Slenderp, 13 Nov 2015Isn't it the same idea as Android One?Did you not read the article?
Personally I would rather get an old flagship and install cynagen on it than some poor specced budget phone.
And after 2 months they will stop support and move on to some thing else. (oneplus one, yuphoria ...)
Community powered Cyanogen mod is great. Cyanogen OS is terrible.
It's just me or I get the feeling that cyanohenmod is more talk than doing things?
By the track record that They f*cked up relation with oneplus. And the talk that they want to take android from Google.
I used their Rom, it's was fine didn't leave a particular impression.
Just get your shit together before spouting words you can't take back cyanogen
Daniyiel, 13 Nov 2015Kinda but maybe cyanogen will do what Google couldn't and bring its idea to new markets i.e. S... moreThe reason Google failed at Android One is because Google was rather strict in term of hardware spec-wise. This was needed so they can deliver latest iteration faster by minimizing per device testing. If hardware spec vary, OEM must participate on the testing which can cause latest iteration release date can be vary across devices.
But strict hardware requirement means less OEM interested making One since they can't differentiate their devices to competitors'.

If Marshmallow is coming by next year then what is it different from the others? Many OEMs have phones in that price range and even flagships in mid range prices
Slenderp, 13 Nov 2015Isn't it the same idea as Android One?Kinda but maybe cyanogen will do what Google couldn't and bring its idea to new markets i.e. Southamerica, Africa and not just India.
CM 13 ???? Yuphorians don't get the CM 12.1 till now... please update sold devices first then try to launch new....
lk.123, 13 Nov 2015i like it! bring a high-end device under $250-350 running cyanogen.That's impossible.
