    Over the past few years, India has risen to become a hotbed for smartphone growth, offering OEMs lots of potential for low-priced phones to compete in a growing market. It and OnePlus seem like the perfect match – OnePlus has the pretty nice phone at a fair price, and India has the growth potential and customers the former needs. In the midst of the two joining, however, there have been many hurdles. According to OnePlus, just two weeks before the One was set to launch in India, the company was notified that Indian manufacturer Micromax had attained exclusive rights to the CyanogenMod OS ...

    There are a ton of reasons to love the OnePlus One, starting with its price tag. Moving that specific reason aside, another big reason is that the device runs a pre-installed version of CyanogenMod, or should we say, as long as you don't live in India. Certain exclusive deals force OnePlus to sell this device with its custom version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, though if your device already runs CyanogenMod, there's a good chance that you're in luck. Cyanogen Inc has just taken the time to explain how its policies will work in India, and things might get lucky for a few. If you purchase the ...

    This past year's been a huge one for Cyanogen Inc., seeing not just the formal incorporation of the company, but its involvement in the release of new Android hardware, like the OnePlus One, or its dealings with Oppo (as with the N1, above). Will the next year bring similarly big things to Cyanogen's table? Well, it sure looks like interest in the company is higher than ever, as we get word of a new round of funding and reports of Google interest in a possible acquisition. Cyanogen's said to be going after investors now, seeking an ultimate market valuation up around the one billion dollar ...

    Is there any real mystery left in smartphones? We've got all these companies teasing their IFA announcements, and while many aren't outright announcing new products already (except you, LG – you're a kook), they're pretty much doing everything but. And while there's still a lot of uncertainty around products like the new iPhones, few of us are doubting that the phones themselves exist. How about some news that's quite a bit more open-ended? We've got just the thing, as there's something going on right now between Cyanogen and Nextbit, but no one seems to have a good idea of just what ...

    What does it mean to “Never Settle” when it comes to a smartphone? Almost every piece of technology has its limits, due to the restrictions of available technology, physics, or just how much circuitry you can cram into a rectangular box. Does not settling mean including every possible feature under the sun? Does it mean making an affordable phone with zero compromises on hardware? What would zero compromises look like? New kid on the block OnePlus, a Chinese manufacturer led by a former Oppo executive, has given us its bold answer in the One, a phone it calls a ‘Flagship Killer.’ ...

    As invites start rolling out to early supporters of OnePlus, the company has revised the release date estimate for their flagship One smartphone due to an upcoming software update related to recently-discovered OpenSSL vulnerabilities. Invited people are receiving an email from OnePlus letting them know about the delay without going into much detail, but over on Reddit, a Cyanogen Inc. employee decided to clear things up a bit better. OpenSSL vulnerabilities discovered last week have been pegged as the reasoning behind this delay, and Cyanogen wants the factory release of the OnePlus One ...

    We've heard a lot about OnePlus, and their first smartphone, the One, or, the "2014 Flagship Killer", as the company has been slowly building up the buzz and anticipation around the device. The phone has been finally made public today as the company announced its first, Cyanogen-powered device. "Never settle" is the motto behind it, and, as we've recently seen, our readers prefer more bang for their buck, opposed to cheaper options. What if there was a phone that could bring the best of both worlds? We're talking about a phone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a quad-core ...

    In the precious few month since some of the team behind CyanogenMod found themselves some backers and put together Cyanogen Inc., things have been moving fast. We saw the launch of the first smartphone with official manufacturer-blessed CyanogenMod support, even arriving in a straight-from-the-factory CM edition. We also got a streamlined CyanogenMod installer app in the Play Store, though Google eventually forced it out of there. Most recently, we've been hearing about possible new hardware partners for future CM phones. All this has sounded pretty ambitious, and today we learn about the ...
