Almost everything in the UI is user-configurable,itcarries theme support to change every element of the UI in one click, and when you start to explore the settingsdialogs, youll realise almost every item can be tweaked.On one hand this can feel rather overpowering, but on the other it means the OnePlus One can feel much more like your device than the singlevision offered by a manufacturer.

This feature does not, to my knowledge, exist within the Android ecosystem and is something sorely missing from vanilla Android. Rootability The ZP998 can easily be rooted and a single custom ROM exists for it. The process, while potentially bricking your phone, doesnt take a lot of effort.
