While, OnePlus One smartphone has also been a major player in the Chinese smartphone market that came to be as a powerful device competing the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2. Before making a buying decision, you should know these devices better.

Design and Build

Xiaomi and One Plus One are doing well in terms of both design and build. OnePlus One features a unique finish on its back and its white version comes with a coating that gives it an incredible touch. It feels great in hand.

Likewise, Xiaomi is an extraordinary device with the chassis carved from one piece of aluminium supported by a metal frame that reminds you of iPhone.

Camera

After using smartphones like Sony Xperia Z2, LG G3 and Lumia 930 users are really disappointed by their 13MP cameras, as they are not living up to the users expectations. Both devices, Xiaomi and OnePlus One use Sony Exmor IMX214 13 MP sensor camera in result producing crystal clear images.

It seems Xiaomi to have better HDR while the One Plus One gives sharper pictures. OnePlus One also seems to have better equalizer and sound hardware that produces better sound when listening to audio through headset.

Operating System

The Chinese manufacturing industry has took a different approach to Android UI, while most handsets run on basic operating system. Both Mi 4 has MIUI and OnePlus One comes with CyanogenMod 11S, both having great UI’s that has amazing customization options with ample collection of apps.

The 11S version of Cyanogen Mod is touch sensitive when it is about gesture control. While MIUI has been known most in 2014 when Xiaomi Mi3 made its presence in the market.
