Cyanogen OS 12.1 rolls out for OnePlus One, on other devices soon

If you’re a OnePlus One user, then this could be something you’ve been waiting for a bit. The good news is Cyanogen OS 12.1 – the Android 5.1 update for Cyanogen OS – will be rolling out over the air (OTA) to OnePlus One devices starting today, and will do so for other Cyanogen OS devices in the next few days. The update looks promising, so let’s dig in.

OnePlus 2 experiencing some grounding, home button not responding well

Any new smartphone isn’t immune to any issues. Name any device or model from any manufacturer, even those from the top brands, and they sure have some bugs or issues that need immediate fixing. The original OnePlus One had touchscreen issues but a firmware update quickly solved them. We were hoping there won’t be any of those on the OnePlus 2. There's none but apparently, the phone now has a grounding issue according to some early adopters.

OnePlus One can now receive Cyanogen OS 12.1 OTA update

After the Oxygen OS 2.0.1 update for OnePlus 2 was released, the OnePlue One is also getting an update to Cyanogen OS 12.1. This particular version already includes Android 5.1.1 Lollipop so OnePlus One owners no longer have to complain that their units are becoming outdated. We actually don't remember when was the last update for the first-gen OnePlus smartphone since the version was released (was there any?) but we're glad the Cyanogen OS 12.1 is here.

The OnePlus 2 verdict: probably the best phone at this price point

Our friends over at SlashGear have put out their verdict for the smartphone that was dubbed “the flagship killer”, also known as the OnePlus 2. We’ve seen a lot of this new phone over the past few days, as more and more people are getting their hands on OnePlus’s new baby. And from what word that we’re getting from people who have used it, played around with it, made it their main phone for the past few days, we hear that the OnePlus 2 strikes a good balance between good things and not-so-good things. And at its price point, you might not see a better deal.

OnePlus 2 bares its guts in iFixit teardown

If you haven’t seen the new OnePlus 2 for all it really is – meaning, seeing everything, including the internals – then you shouldn’t miss out on iFixit’s teardown of the new “flagship killer” out of China. The teardown specialists have a penchant for gorgeous and meticulously prepared pics, and for that alone, this should be worth your time. Also, you will always wonder how easy your new OnePlus 2 can be repaired. So here you go.

OnePlus 2 unboxing and hands on reveals premium feel

Our friends over at SlashGear got their hands on a real live OnePlus 2 smartphone very recently (we're still waiting for ours), and they posted some unboxing pics that we'd like to take part in. The OnePlus 2 is the second phone of that aggressive young upstart company based in China called OnePlus, who wowed the world before with the OnePlus One -- their first phone which had flagship specs but could be obtained at a price waaaay lower, albeit through an "invite only" system. Now we get to see what the OnePlus 2 looks like.

OnePlus 2 shipments to North America will be delayed

After the initial rush, seems that OnePlus now has to deal with the reality of getting their fabled new smartphone – the OnePlus 2 – to market and deal with the demand they themselves created and basked in the glory of. A few days back they were thanking consumers and feeling pretty happy with over 2 million orders in a span of just a week. Today, they’re announcing that shipments to North America will be delayed.

OnePlus: over 2 million reservations in one week for the OnePlus 2

It must be a good time to be OnePlus right now, the China-based upstart now feeling the support of a public convinced that they’re going to be able to do the same trick with the OnePlus 2 what they did with its predecessor, heck maybe even do it better. That support comes in the shape of over 2 million reservations for the new flagship in the span of one week. Pretty nice, eh?

OnePlus’ Carl Pei confirms another smartphone coming this year

OnePlus just recently released their second ever smartphone, the OnePlus 2, and while not everyone is completely happy with it, we have to admit that marketing-wise, this relatively new brand has been doing a pretty good job of creating noise for its two products. In a new interview with USA Today, co-founder Carl Pei revealed that this will soon be three products, as they are planning to release another one later this year, and this time, it might be a mid-range device.
