OnePlus 3 Unboxing (Video)

My OnePlus 3 finally arrived and so, as is the protocol here on the internet, I figured I’d do a quick unboxing and tell you guys what it comes with and what it’s specs are. The phone is clad in an all metal body with curved edges that definitely lends a more premium feel to the phone over previous OnePlus devices. On the front of the device we have a 5.5″ AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080P. (The resolution was kept down no doubt to keep the price down). On the right side we have our power button and …

CyanogenMod on OnePlus X

Video: How to Install CyanogenMod on the OnePlus X

CyanogenMod is a small company that makes custom ROMs for Android devices run by a community of developers. This community and the ROMs have become hugely popular with tinkerers of their devices and when OnePlus began developing their first device, it makes some sense as to why they were tapped to make the software for the fledgling companies new flagship device: the OnePlus One. Sales were good, everything seemed great for the two startups and their new marriage of software and hardware, but then came the release of the OnePlus Two, the One’s sequel, and one thing was blatantly missing: …

Root on the OnePlus X

Video: How to Root the OnePlus X

The OnePlus X is OnePlus’ latest phone to hit the market and instead of going for a flagship killer, the X is aimed slightly lower (only slightly). With a quad-core processor, 3GBs of RAM, and a slick body of Onyx (seriously it’s slick), it’s still no budget phone. Yet with a price tag of about $249.00, it sorta is. Despite these well qualified specs, some people do have issue with one thing about the OnePlus at least –the software. OnePlus made a switch from CyanogenMod, a community driven custom version of Android, to their own ColorOS version of Android starting …

New OnePlus Device Shows Up at FCC

There have been a bunch of rumors and “leaks” about a new OnePlus phone coming out on the heels of the relatively just released OnePlus Two. Today, however, the FCC had a filing from the company dubbed the ONE E1005 and it’s most likely the device everyone has been yammering about. Thing is, it doesn’t match a lot of the rumors. For one, the device in the FCC filings doesn’t show a USB-C port (which I’m sure most people just assumed was coming with the new device since the OnePlus Two has one), and has a 1.9ghz processor speed which …

CyanogenMod on OnePlus Two

How to Get CyanogenMod on the OnePlus Two (Video)

The original OnePlus One was the first device to be loaded with CyanogenMod, a popular third-party developer’s ROM, directly from the manufacturer. This is as opposed to the way we used to just flash CyanogenMod ourselves on the device we had regardless of what ROM came on it from the factory. Well, it seems that OnePlus has ditched CyanogenMod in favor of their own in-house ROM for the OnePlus Two for whatever reason (cue the dramatic music). So if you want CyanogenMod, it’s back to the old-school way –flashing it ourselves. First you need to flash a custom recovery and …

OnePlus Two Root

How to Root the OnePlus Two (Video)

After all the hype the OnePlus One caused and the, not particularly large, but damn-loyal fanbase they achieved, they finally just launched a successor: the OnePlus Two. Just like with the OnePlus One the idea was to put higher end specs in a device while keeping the price tag a few hundred dollars shy of the competitors (and just like the last time, what better way to create as much hype as possible than with the same invite-only system of purchasing and giveaways to gain invites), the OnePlus Two followed suit. But while the hardware is top-notch on the OnePlus …
