I'd love to get my hands on a Oneplus One and see how it feels to live with. I do think it's a beautiful phone, and the specs seem pretty on point.

Mmm still not sold on this phone, feel like there is a lot of potential however I don't know if it will live up to everything it is saying it can do. Not to mention if carriers will actually support the device.

Sigma pls send me your OnePlus One k thx god bles.

What did you think of the OnePlus One? I know the screen size bugs you, but what did you think of the rest of the phone?

Waiting to see what the LG G4 mockup looks like and might consider getting one of those off contract.

The S6 is rumored to be a complete refresh/redesign so we'll see what happens when that comes out.

People also are pretty happy with the Moto X and the Nexus 6, which is basically a bigger screened Moto X
Thanks! I appreciate the info.

Too heavy too. N5 is a feather compared to the brick.

Less crashes than my N5 but not by a whole lot. No custom stuff on the oneplus yet.

tires > new phone

Been with a Oneplus One since September last year. Big screen but maybe too big? I was playing with the iPhone 6 smaller version and that seemed like a good size.

Updated to CM12 (Lollipop) Nightly + AK1.35 Kernel. Looks good thus far.

I kept getting update alerts to my phone and it would download the software update and wait for me to hit "install". Kept doing that for like a month lol.

Finally looked up the process to prompt/check for updates and froze it. No more annoying reminders/downloads

(-SDM (v1.0) was the process for future reference.)

5.1 is out for my N5, haven't gotten the OTA yet, and I will probably use the toolkit so I don't lose root/don't have to wipe the phone completely.
