OnePlus One vs Nexus 5

Chances are you're eyeing up the Galaxy S5, LG G3, iPhones 5s or HTC One (m8). All very good, very capable devices, and we should be so lucky to own them. But with an average price of $200 on a two-year contract, and hundreds more off, getting the latest technology is never cheap. So what's a phone aficionado to do? Luckily there are some excellent alternatives out there; the unsung heroes of the mobile world-and, no, you don't have to settle for a handset with specs from 2005.

Even though the OnePlus One does sport beefier specs, you're really not going to notice any significant difference in performance over the Nexus 5. Though, being as the Nexus 5 is nearing the end of its life cycle, the OnePlus One is just a tad more future proof; it can easily hold up to most of today's big flagship devices, and in some instances even one-up them. Put it this way: Nexus 5 buyers won't complain that their device is slow, though there's something special about the way that CyanogenMod 11S runs on a phone with 3GB of RAM. Check it out and let us know what you think.
