High-end specification, sophisticated design, and high quality material are all details we are seeing more and more often on Chinese phones, now new comer OOne what to bring it all to Mediatek devices.
Very little is known about the flagship Oone other the company are aiming to deliver a premium feeling smartphone to the masses using materials such as glass and aluminium rather than the more mainstream plastic. It is also rumoured that instead of a 1.7Ghz Octacore MT6592 the Oone could have the 2.0Ghz variant with up to 2GB RAM too.
Gizchina News of the week
Oone will be joining the likes of Gionee, Huawei, JiaYu, iOcean and Oppo who all have glass, alloy Mediatek phones in the works or already on sale, so what could the Oone do any better?[ GizChina.it ]
What next? OoonePlusPlus?
Nope…the next brand is= OnePlusOneEqualsTwo 😀
haha you made my day 😀
haha. perhaps we should check the ownership records for the company? 😉
For sure it looks promising…but, to answer your question “what could the Oone do any better?”, my straight anwer is: “find a better name” 😀 otherwise they will be “no-one”…
If you use high end specifiications and quality materials then why still use a SOC with a closed source and mediocre GPS if there are perhaps better alternatives? Probably their first model will be called Oone Plus Plus One (OPPO) 😉
They just need to fix the GPS module. Truth be told, MediaTek is finally catching up with Qualcomm and Samsung, especially with their new chips. If the MTK Nexus actually becomes a reality, we could see MTK open their sources soon.
Is the GPS still not fixed on the octacore?
I’m not sure to be honest. A lot of people say the GPS reception on the new batch of 8-core phones is fantastic. Then there’s the bunch who say the GPS is slightly better than before, but still pretty bad. The ZP998 I had my hands on was pretty good, the same goes for a Note 3 clone I tried out.
It would be hard enough to be a follow on to OnePlus, but did they have to choose a copycat name?
Just by looking at their mission statement and name, its easy to tell they have a critical lack of creativity. Perhaps a fatal lack of it.
Find out what the customers want. Here is my list:
An original ergonomic design
Comfortable and well balanced rather than super slim
3500 Mah removable battery
1080 screen 5.5″ gorilla glass 3
Micro sd card
Camera as good as the OPO
Mediatek Octa core with 4G LTE and WCDMA or even better snapdragon
2 GB Ram
I can’t find any phones out there that have all these. The OPO is the best but still fails – no dual sim, no removable battery, no micro SD card and no invite – everything else is super.
The same specs but 5″ or 4.7″
Nah man, smaller screen has worse battery and also once you use a 5′ phone you get used to it and would never go to a smaller one
The Nubia Z5S Mini or Z5S which IMO is better than the OnePlus One and with a similar price. You can get them from the link to Liaow.com.
from 5.5″ to 6″ and not 6.44 or 7″”
FHD OR 2K
camera 13mp and up and aperture 2.0 or 1.8
The closest thing would be the Zopo ZP998, which matches everything BUT has a smaller 2400mAh battery. It is removable though.
How is the camera on the Zopo? The low light shots taken with the OPO are stunning. and with the sun in front the shots don’t get washed out. 2400 mAh battery is okay but I’m not into super thin phones so an extra mm or two for a 3500 mAh battery is fine as long as the phone is comfortable to hold – easily done by just keeping the edges thin like the iNew V3.
From my experience, the camera on the ZP998 is pretty good, especially for an MTK phone. The low light images it took weren’t bad, and the flash was quite bright. I’m not sure if it’s OnePlus quality, but it’s certainly one of the best as far MTK phones go. There’s a review at Chinamobilamag too. I’ll leave a link below.
Thanks for the link. After looking at Andy’s OnePlus one shootout with Xperia Z1, I am having second thoughts about OnePlus one. I would trade Snapdragon for Mediatek with a decent camera – all other things being equal.
The Zopo ZP998’s camera is pretty good. I’m not sure if it’s as good as the OnePlus One’s since I’ve never used the One before, but it’s certainly one of the better cameras on a MediaTek phone. Low light images have some noise and can be slightly blurry, but the flash on the ZP998 is quite bright. In daylight the camera is fantastic, pictures look really nice.
mediatek device never be high class device , never!
Why? They’re fast enough, have a bunch of good features and they’re pretty cheap.
