The OnePlus One was announced in April 2014 as a more affordable alternative to premium smartphones. The handset proved to be a huge success from day one and was warmly received by both the experts and users thanks to its low price and high-end hardware. Dubbed as the flagship killer and the most interesting smartphone of 2014, the OnePlus One just got permanent price cut following last week’s flash sale.
OnePlus One permanently discounted by $50
A week ago OnePlus discounted the One as a part of a special promotion. Interested buyers could grab the device for $50 off which brought the price to $249 for the 32GB model and $299 for a variant with 64GB of storage. The deal was supposed to end on June 7th, but apparently users’ response was so positive that the company decided to drop the price for good. It means that the OnePlus One will still set you back $249 or $299 for the 32GB and 64GB variant, respectively, only you no longer have to keep tabs on promotional hours.
Moreover, OnePlus announced that it’s teaming up with Dropbox to bring customers a 64GB version of the One bundled with “free” year of Dropbox Pro for $349. Why the quotation mark? Because the phone currently is priced at $299 so the Dropbox Pro subscription will actually cost you $50. Keep in mind, though, that a year of Dropbox Pro typically costs $99, so whatever way you look at it, you will get $50 in savings.
As for the handset itself, you probably already know what the phone has to offer. Let’s go over key specs anyway. The One is a phablet-size device equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor. The chip is aided by 3GB of RAM and you can choose between 32GB and 64GB of storage. Other features include a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor main sensor with dual-LED flash, and f/2.0 aperture, 5-megapixel selfie shooter, a generous 3,100 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with CyanogenMod 11S UI on top.
Even though the OnePlus One is over a year old, the device is still perfectly capable of delivering excellent performance thanks to great hardware and almost up-to-date software. The phone was offered at budget-friendly price from the very beginning and after the latest price cut it became even more attractive. You can order your OnePlus One directly from the manufacturer. Any takers?
