Nexus 5 Android 5.0 Lollipop vs OnePlus One 4.4 KitKat CyanogenMod 11S review


We’ve been bringing plenty of news about the Android 5.0 Lollipop update that is due to start rolling out to various devices soon. Recently we showed a video of the Nexus 5 running a developer preview of Android 5.0 vs. the iPhone 6 on iOS 8. Today we have a video to share that shows a Nexus 5 Android 5.0 Lollipop vs. OnePlus One 4.4 KitKat CyanogenMod 11S review.

The Nexus 5 smartphone will be one of the first devices to receive the public release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which so far has been in the hands of developer testing. Many readers who are Android device enthusiasts will also have heard of the OnePlus One smartphone that runs custom CyanogenMod 11S based on Android 4.4 KitKat.

Below this article we’ve embedded a YouTube video that compares the two operating versions of these devices. It begins by showing how similar the home screens are before moving on to some of the differences with the modified CyanogenMod handset. It continues by comparing the Settings menus and covers other features such as the dialer, multitasking, app drawer, boot-down screen, wallpapers, some of the customizations with CyanogenMod and more.

The video offers an interesting preview of how the Nexus 5 looks running Android 5.0 Lollipop and some of the differences offered with the CyanogenMod experience. Of course the Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet will both release with Lollipop out of the box, and you may also be interested in our earlier article today about the Lollipop update for Asus Zenfones.

When you’ve checked out the video we’d be interested to hear your feedback. Are you a fan of CyanogenMod as offered on the OnePlus One, or are you eagerly awaiting the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop for your device?

        Nexus 5 can be had under 400. Oneplus one can’t be be bought at all!!! Unless you count a terrible invite system and long pre order system a way of buying them. Otherwise you go online and pay more than the nexus. The Nexus craps all over the OPO as far as smoothness and lack of significant issues. I own both.

            I do and Tex Mex is wrong. The OnePlus blows the Nexus 5 away. In speed, picture quality, and battery life.

    OnePlus One owner here:

    I prefer an OPO with 5.0. I would expect a port VERY shortly after full source drop.

    Same as Nexus devices, unlockable boot loader ftw!

      official OPO/CM announcement was 3 months after 5.0 launch. i can wait. currently have a kyocera domino (look it up.. so sad XD). i getting money tomorrow, but still have NO invite! i am so upset XD if i can’t find one, i will have to get a Nexus 5… rather have the OnePlus One though.
