OnePlus One Review: The CyanogenMod Powered Smartphone That Outclasses The Android Competition - Forbes
If thats not enough, the OnePlus One uses CyanogenMod as the operating system a free and open source OS based on Googles official releases of Android with strong community support. Lets start with the OS, because it is thebiggest unique selling point of the handset. The OnePlus One uses a version of CyanogenMod 11 called 11S. This is based around Android 4.4.2 Kitkat (for those of you keeping track, the current version in the handset is 11.0-XNPH22Q).As one of the first phones to ship out of the factory with CyanogenMod installed (as opposed to sitting down with a multitude of flashing tools, roms, and long linux command line incantations to switch overan existing Android handset), this significantly reduces the barrier of entryinto the world of CyanogenMod.
