If you don't care too much about your choice of phone you'll look at the basic specs and design - compare the price of this and say the S5 and go with the +1.
If you care less about appearance (design) & about more about other factors like the details, features, ergonomics, practicality of use etc you'll more likely to invest more $$ in a flagship. (This HAS to be true as a lot of people buy Samsung even though there's plenty of design bashing.) The actual reasons people decide on a flagship include banking on the maturity & development of things like UI, camera software, internal & external hardwares, speed & frequency of updates etc etc.
This phone is cheap for what you're getting - agreed. But it's a risk - & an ugly one at that.
Come on man ..!!! Look at u..such an addict wit preoccupied mind..do u knw wat common people want ...they want gud specs nd low price and they may tolerate simple mistakes no sd card nd a lil high value..afteral the rotton flagship company sel same spec with $800 everybody choices opo..u wil see withn a month
AnonD-257070, 23 Apr 2014Clearly you skipped the part where the prices were stated. The specs are the same if not super... moreYou just don't get it, do you? The average dim wit doesn't care about specs and I would go as far to say even the average "power user" can't see the real world on-screen speed differences between a snapdragon 600 and 800 processor let alone the tiny 100-200mhz speed bump the 801 brings.
This phone will sell well but it's got it's niche market -- people probably like you who just want the most bang for their buck and don't care about aesthetics and industrial design. This phone is simply duplicating the Nexus phone recipe; awesome specs, low price, ugly phone. Most consumers want a well polished gem of a phone that's beautiful to look at and feels good in their hand, and that is not the OnePlus One and its the same reason why people aren't flocking to buy Nexus phones either. This is nothing more than the equivalent of a teenager who takes a new big block race motor, dumps it in his 1992 mustang, and then brags how he's got more horsepower than a 2008 M3 -- guess what, I'd still rather have the M3! Enjoy your 92' mustang.
One, 23 Apr 2014other sites say it has NFC and SD slot...which is correct?Chek this
This is the new Nexus 4! The only deal-breakers would be a sub-par camera or monitor, but again for that price, it will take at least a year to find something similar.
This phone need convert in the "OnePlus One mini" but with IGZO display, for example specs:
1.Display.- 4.5 inch HD - IGZO - CGG 3
2.Memory.- 2 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Snapdragon 801
belive everyone have buy this smartphone
Best bang for money! What a phone! I, I am truly impressed! This puts flagship phones to shame! Snapdragon 801 at this price. Wow. Just launch this phone in India with the same price and take my money!!!!!!
AnonD-168496, 23 Apr 2014It's funny that your fact is only the Corning© Gorilla© Glass 3! What else from t... moreInfra Red Hand Gesture Sensor and NFC and Corning Glass. They are all there. How about you do some research before trying to act a smart ass?
Looks like Nexus 5 & HTC M8 series with such a great features.
It will have more sales in Indian market but it had not been launched in India.
Best Example : Recently Moto G has a great market share in India with good features in affordable price like 1+.
Hope this vll be released in India.
It's funny that your fact is only the Corning© Gorilla© Glass 3!
What else from the list he mentioned you have other than the Corning© Gorilla© Glass 3?!!

There have been exceptions in the past(namely galaxy s3, which, despite its ridiculous plastic back, made quite a good impression in this category).
But this is not why I'm replying. You need to understand that the major hit with this phone is the price / specs ratio. It's WAY better than basically anything you can find today on the market. You may be just another guy convinced that (truly expensive!) flagships are the only ones that pay off. I myself own an Xperia Z, which was considered expensive when I bought it. But I must admit, the One is a catcher for 90% of the population out there, who are not willing to pay 500 euro for a phone.
Xperia is better, but is more expensive. In the end, we pay for design.
