If you happen to own the OnePlus One, a smartphone that certainly packs plenty of punch for its relatively affordable price point, chances are you would have done your fair share of checking to see whether the OnePlus One handset in your hand had picked up the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. All of that waiting would have resulted in more waiting, too, despite OnePlus having promised in the previous week to roll out the CyanogenMod 12S update as well as the new Oxygen OS for the OnePlus One users by the time March 30 rolls around. Apparently, this is not going to happen in a few days’ time, since OnePlus One’s representative, David, made a post on Reddit that cited giving away free handsets to a select few rather than rolling out the update.
The Oppo N1 rolled out a couple of years ago, and that particular model certainly captured the imagination of the masses thanks to an innovative rotating camera lens, in addition to top class hardware as well as Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the operating system of choice, skinned with Oppo’s Color launcher, of course. The Oppo N1 also held the distinction of being the very first handset to be on the receiving end of an official Cyanogen treatment, thanks to a collaboration between Cyanogen and Oppo.
