OnePlus One Personal Experience After Using It For 3 Days (Ultra HD)

Just adding a video on YouTube to describe how I felt personally about using OnePlus One after 3 days.  The video is shaky since I’d rarely ever used a smartphone for recording videos, and so I didn’t anticipate for the footage to be so shaky.  The footage I’d taken with OnePlus One is raw; meaning I didn’t use Photoshop or any other video quality enhancement feature to make the footage looks better.  I want the footage to be pristine  just like how it got captured without being edited, showing the real quality of the hardware that I used to capture the footage.  Nonetheless, since the video is way too shaky for normal viewing, and so I had to use a stabilizer feature which came with my video editing software to somewhat stabilize the shaky footage.  In the future, if I’m ever going to do another video recording session with a smartphone, I’ll definitely put more effort in anchoring myself so the footage won’t be too shaky.  Anyhow, check out the video right after the break.  Enjoy!!!

Oneplus.net Is Crashing As Too Many People Are Trying To Pre-Order

Apparently, Oneplus.net is down as it crashes when so many people are hitting Oneplus.net at the same time to pre-order Oneplus One smartphone.  Oneplus.net tweets (link) that its people are working on to bring the server back up for pre-ordering.  As I’m writing this right now, I can’t really pre-oder the phone since Oneplus.net won’t allow my web browser to load it.  Anyhow, let’s hope Oneplus.net will be OK soon so people can begin to pre-order Oneplus One.  I had the feeling that this would happen, because Oneplus One is a hot smartphone.  I didn’t know I was so damn right about that I wouldn’t get to load Oneplus.net correctly on time for pre-ordering. Sigh…  Are you pre-ordering Oneplus One too?

The Reddit’s Oneplus One Pre-order conversation is here (link).

Update:  I finally got through the Oneplus.net’s Pre-order hiccup and ordered 2 Oneplus Ones.  One for my sister, and the other one is for me.  Nonetheless, at the moment, I’m still seeing my payment to Oneplus.net through Paypal is being pending.  Crossing my fingers and hoping that nothing will go wrong.  If nothing will go wrong, I’ll receive Oneplus One in 4 to 5 weeks wait time.  The wait time is suck, but I hope the phone will be great!

Oneplus One Pre-order Count Down – 1 Day, 13 Hours, 36 Minutes, And 56 Seconds To Go

Oneplus Screenshot 01Oneplus’ one day pre-order is counting down as we speak.  As I’m writing this right now, it seems there is only 1 day, 13 hours, 36 minutes, and 56 seconds left before time runs out, and when time does run out you cannot order the Oneplus One smartphone until when I don’t really know.  You only have one hour to finalize the pre-order of Oneplus One when it’s time to do so.  Miss the hour, then you won’t be able to finalize the pre-order and get the Oneplus One ships to you.

I’m exciting about this Oneplus One smartphone.  I haven’t switched to any other smartphone since HTX 8x, but I’m pre-ordering the Oneplus One as we speak.  Hopefully, I won’t be occupied on the hour when the finalizing process is suppose to be taken for Oneplus One pre-order to go through.  If I’m going to get my hand on this beast, I’ll probably write a thing or two about my personal experience with it.  Until then, I guess…

Additional Information:  As standing, you don’t need to subscribe to any mobile contract, and yet Oneplus One is fully unlocked.  With amazing hardware and capabilities, and yet Oneplus One is half the price of most elite smartphones out there.  As we speak, I can pre-order Oneplus One 64GB Sandstone black model for $349.  Certain carriers may not work with Oneplus One, and so if you want this phone badly you may have to do some research to see if your carrier is OK with Oneplus One.  I know AT&T is OK with Oneplus One.

Price War Is Underway For Contents? Amazon Lowers The Price Of More Than 30 Verizon Phones To A Penny Each

iPhone 4S has jolted the smartphone market with its thundering entrance.  This prompts Apple’s adversaries to vamp up their efforts in taking down iPhone’s domination.  Amazon has made the first move by selling more than 30 Verizon phones for a penny each?

Obviously, the deal is that customers have to sign a contract for a penny a phone deal.  Nonetheless, this kind of deal is rather sweet, because a penny is something everyone hates to keep around.  People rather bundle up their pennies into sticks of pennies so they can haul such pennies to banks to cash out green papers, but some people feel repulsive at the idea for they think it’s somewhat embarrassing.  OK, did I digress?

Anyhow, I think Amazon has an interest in seeing Apple’s trademark products such as iPhone wane in popularity.  As long Apple keeps on gaining ground in the smartphone and tablet markets, the more Amazon will be scared for Amazon has to face with the possibility that more customers will shop for ebooks and music and movies and magazines on Apple’s platforms only.  Amazon is once again up to its old trick by selling things much much cheaper than its competitors could ever have done so, under any circumstance.  I think Amazon hopes this will eventually weed out all competitors in price wars.  This time around, Amazon means business in the context of a price war on contents.

In summary, at the agonies of Apple’s adversaries, for the limited time Amazon will sell over 30 Verizon’s phones for a penny each.  This move might prevent people to become Apple’s iPhone 4S customers, because they will be bind to the contracts under Verizon’s phones.  I doubt Apple will cut price, because Apple loves to think it’s above the fray — price war won’t be happening here folks! Nonetheless, Amazon might eventually give Apple a scare anyway unless Apple’s charm is too hard to beat!  Even cutting prices to a penny cannot win the day?

For your information:  According to PCMag, iPhone and iPad aren’t part of the deal, but Verizon’s top of the line phones will be part of the deal after all!  PCMag points out that even Motorola Droid Bionic is under the deal.  This phone has super fast Internet access and dual core processor.  Its original price was $299 with two year contract, but now it’s a penny with a contract.  So on and so on…

You Like Imaginary Phone?

Why need to have your smartphone out in plain sight when you can remember all of  its features on the palm of your hand as if you’re a chess savant who could remember all the chess pieces’ positions during a blindfold chess game, right?  Wrong, I think it’s rather silly!  It’s cool that the technology exists just to prove humans are innovative, but this very innovation can only make you look silly.

Why?  Carrying a smartphone so one could hide it inside a pocket and use imaginary smartphone on a palm to prove one’s super muscle memory capability or plain memory tells me that carrying a smartphone in itself is a redundancy.  On the other hand, if they can forgo the smartphone altogether and squeeze all that power into a cool fashionable glasses, it won’t be so silly.  Even a famous celebrity who has to do crazy hand gestures to open emails on a red carpet day and in front of dozens of cameras using a smartphone glasses, it probably be OK and cool and fashionable and futuristic.

Why?  Because we know there is no need to carry a redundant physical smartphone in pocket so we could prove our might in muscle memory capability.  In fact, one knows that the smartphone glasses won’t be so invisible if one wears it; all that 3D visuals and what not will all appear virtually in front of the wearer.  Let hope the glasses/invisible smartphone will bear fruit, and I have to say no thanks to the invisible smartphone/palm.
