OnePlus One hands-on wm_33

While OnePlus is still trying to get OnePlus One invites out to consumers through giveaways and contests, one retailer says they already have some in stock and ready to ship right now. That retailer is Oppomart, who — as their name suggests — sells all things Oppo. Oppo has natural ties to OnePlus, so to see Oppomart carrying the device isn’t all too surprising.

What is surprising, though, is that they have some in stock (which should seem normal considering OnePlus announced it was officially “shipping”). Getting your hands on one won’t come without any catches. They only have the 16GB Silk White version, for starters, and its $400 price tag is $50 more than what the phone officially retails for.

If that’s not enough, their stock doesn’t ship with CyanogenMod 11S. Instead, you’ll be getting Oppo’s ColorOS, though we’re assured the phone can be flashed to CyanogenMod with ease.

Wondering if OppoMart is a safe place to buy? They’re pretty reputable from what our findings show, though reputability and reliability are two different things. If you don’t mind taking a risk on a little-known retailer and don’t mind the snags mentioned above, then by all means order one. Otherwise, keep your fingers crossed that the invitation circus OnePlus has been putting on is put to an end soon.
