OnePlus Journey Infographic
Turning the calendar to April 2014 we witness an unusual product, the OnePlus One. Genesis. A phone that brought a rare blend of flagship specifications, low price and a bloatware free Cyanogen OS, all for $300 dollars. All this at a time when $300 phones had a ton of bloatware, plastic bodies, and poor performance. The OnePlus quickly became a disruptor, a challenger to the Flagship brands, and was labeled the Flagship Killer.
But there were little niggles along the way. OnePlus did not possess the manufacturing capacity of Samsung or Apple and had to use an invite-only sales model which did not go down well with many people. Then there was the whole Cyanogen-Yu exclusive rights fiasco. Slowly OnePlus drifted from Cyanogen and developed their own Oxygen OS which has since been the operating system of choice for OnePlus.
