I've had the OnePlus 1 since 9/30. I like a lot of things about the OPO: customizability, battery life, screen size/resolution; but the entire system is buggier than my Nexus 5. The OPO is also laggy compared to the Nexus. The screen sensitivity is a major problem... I have to tap 2, 3 or 4 times to get a click to register. The lag between "clicking" and the next screen loading is painful. The delay between a registered "click" and the readiness to accept another "click" is frustrating. (e.g. I click the "Messages" icon, and the screen opens, I quickly tap on a conversation, but the click never registers. I have to give the handset a split second after the screen loads before it'll accept another click. That happens in various applications, and is a huge issue compared to my Nexus 5.) These are issues that are independent of network connectivity. It's going from the lock screen to the home screen. From the home screen to the "Phone" screen. From the tray to open the calculator. Bringing up the keyboard in messaging & email apps. Etc.
Swiping down to open the notification bar and settings menu is dodgy... it'll open, but sometimes slide back closed. Or open halfway and then close again. Then it won't register the next swipe down, and I'll have to swipe 2-3 times to get it to open correctly.
Screen orientation/rotation is slow and sometimes locks up on me. Apps crash regularly that have always worked without a glitch on my Nexus 5. While on the lock screen yesterday, I couldn't enter any characters because there was a constant stream of numbers being input while the phone was sitting untouched on my desk. I tried to hit "back," the power button, "enter," all to no avail. I had to wait about 2 minutes for the stream of numbers to stop. Another time while on lock screen, the keypad refused to accept any of my touches while attempting to enter my security code. Result: I couldn't unlock the phone for 5 minutes until it started working again.
There's great potential, but the entire experience feels like it's in beta and not completely solid or ready for general release. In contrast, I've had a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 5, and the interface with those was consistent and rock-solid.
