OnePlus One

Chinese OEM OnePlus has been slowly revealing key details about its upcoming handset — the OnePlus One. It has already confirmed that the handset would be coming sometime in June this year for a price of under $400. Today, the company has revealed vital information about the chipset being used and the battery capacity of its upcoming flagship as well.


CPU-Z made its debut appearance on the Google Play Store back in 2013 and has been recognized as the most reliable, fluid, user-friendly, streamlined, diverse and feature-packed third-party system analysis tool ever since. So, consequently, we here at Cult of Android have decided to bring this application its very own review as part of our weekly ‘App Of The Week’ segment.


Samsung’s already told us that it’s hoping to bring iris-scanning security features to its upcoming Galaxy S5, but that may not be the only innovation the flagship handset introduces. According to some sources, we can also expect a new high-capacity 2,900mAh battery with rapid charging technology.


HTC has unveiled an updated Power Flip Case for the One max that doubles as a stand for the 5.9-inch phablet. The new device also maintains its 1,200mAh built-in battery, which provides additional power for your device while you’re on the go.


I don’t know about you, but I was hoping Google would finally give us a battery percentage indicator in Android 4.4 KitKat. Sure, there are plenty of third-party apps that’ll do this in Google Play, but none are as clean or as simple as the baked-in solutions provided by the likes of Samsung and HTC.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be — but there is a way you can add a battery percentage indicator without rooting under Android 4.4. Just follow the steps below.
