Just read here; forums.oneplus.net/threads/the-oneplus-one-scree­n-bright-sharp-and-power-efficient.370/ that the onePlus device would have a 1080p display, that's not good enough,then why so much noise about this device if the display and cpu are going to be the same as what is already on available, they are even saying its going to have a 13MP camera so what makes it so special,LG design and display is already a killer so what's new

Yeah. Some smartphones from another manufacturer such as Fujitsu, Huawei and Apple were also once used Sony's Exmor CMOS sensor.

The 8MP camera of the iPhone comes also from Sony so it is not a bad choice

Their mirrorless "NEX" segment has always relied on optical image stabilization. But neither, has ever, used software to stabilize the image, which is what this thing is, based on "over 120 algorithms" point.
The only exception to the rule is their A65 and A77 DSLT cameras, which use software IS during video to eliminate overheating. But in a still mode, these two still rely on sensor shift.
