    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).

    A little while back, I posed the question of what makes a smartphone "too thin." There's no question that the race is still on when it comes to measurable physical specs, with OEMs biting and snapping at one another, engaging in petty wars of engineering in order to claim the title of "thinnest" or "biggest" or "fastest." Everyone wants to claim they're the "best" at something, especially corporations which stand to make a fair bit of money with such ostentatious proclamations.
