    How big is that bottom bezel in person? I know perspectives tend to be different from pictures to actually experiencing it.

    Haven't used the speakers for music or anything yet, but they seem quite loud for notifications and ringtones. Will have to spend more time to compare, but they sound average right now.

    No-go on wireless charging. It has a Snapdragon 801 so i'll check on rapid charge.

    Very high quality, if maybe a bit heavy/dense. It's a 5.5-inch phone so it's getting a bit unwieldy, but the materials themselves are well put together. Even though the back case is removable it doesn't feel like it is.

    Camera shutter seems fast so far. Haven't had a chance to use the flash — there's a dual LED one on there that should be bright, but every phone looks like crap when using a flash I wouldn't expect much here.

    As I touched on above, yeah the phone is a bit big and tough to hold onto at 5.5-inches. It's considerably larger than the Nexus 5. I'll have a better idea after I use it longer how I can adapt to using a large screen again.

    something like color accuracy, brightness (indoor/outdoor) saturation, contrast etc..
    Haven't done any tight side-by-side comparisons, but the screen looks good. Crisp, bright and accurate. I'll have a better idea of outdoor visibility as i turn it into my primary device for a while.

    Far more time needs to be spent with this before I can make a large comparison like that. Right now I can say the OnePlus One and the Nexus 5 are very different phones.

    Other points:

    - How are the ergonomics? I was let down when I learned about the size. Does it feel more like a phablet than a big phone (M8, GS5, Z2)?
    - Can it be handled with one hand with little or no discomfort?
    - The camera. You can take some shots and post them or save them for an article.
    - Is there something you already like about CM 11S that you didn't now it had before?
    - Touch response. Is it on par with other flagships? Is there any lag on the OS?

    The OnePlus One is a great device but I'm still mulling over its size. My only other option (and 1st on my list) is the HTC One M8 as I have had a great experience with the M7 for almost a year.

    Thanks in advance!
    Haven't even had the opportunity to put headphones into this thing. It's been 2 days .

    I touched on this above, but it's definitely a stretch of my hand to get around the entire screen. It still feels like a phone than a "phablet," but it's a big phone.

    I like the simple layout of CM11 as it reminds me of what i have on my Nexus — I also think the camera interface is interesting.

    Touch response seems fine.

    I see no option to just tap and gain root in the settings.

    CM11 S on my device is near identical to the community version. The only big new things are a fresh theme engine, the camera app and the gallery app.

    Haven't taken enough low light to make a judgement.

    Panorama, but no photosphere at least on the software I have.

    CM has TONS of software features. Far too many to list here. This isn't stock Android by a long shot. Yes, it has double tap to wake, silencing features and all that jazz.

    bottom bezel is small, about the size of the Nexus 5's.

    Is there an option to have the capacitive buttons change behavior even if the lit-up images/icons don't change?

    When given the option and seeing that the button areas are already there, I would choose capacitive over on-screen but I saw on AC's articles that the Back button is in the right side, just like what (amazingly awkward and unintuitive to UI navigation) Samsung has been doing on their phones for a long time.

    The Back button should always be on the left IMHO.

    Yeah, battery life is definitely one thing I'm interested in. Keep us posted Andrew!

    Aside from that, how does the feel in hand and ergonomics compare to other phablets like the Note 3 for example? I find the Note 3 a bit too wide to hold one handed. I understand the OPO is a bit narrower, so is it much better in that regard?

    Feels snappy. Faster than the GS5, but that's not a great benchmark. It's maybe nearing the speed of the Nexus 5, but still feels maybe a touch slower. I'll see what I notice over time.

    The software updates come from Cyanogen, so they won't be region-locked.

    Just put my SIM in it, so haven't used it outdoors much. It's a high quality LCD and seems to do pretty well so far though, we'll see over time.

    Ringer gets loud. I'm usually pretty sensitive though, I keep my ringers turned down low on all my phones.

    Read back to previous responses on build quality and battery life.

    I talk about the speed a bit above. It seems quick, and I can tell there will be few slowdowns — it'll be something I'd need more time to notice. Just out of the box and setting it up everything seems fast.

    Right, the capacitive back button is on the right side, and there's a menu button on the left. I've turned on software keys, but if you leave the capacitive ones on you can set what the home and menu buttons do for both short- and long-press actions. for example you could set the menu key to work as a multitasking button.

    They have a Qualcomm-made "Hey Snapdragon" voice recognition that you can do. I've set it up but haven't played with it at all yet.

    You can lock focus by tapping, and you can set in the settings how long it'll lock for when you tap.

    The phone gets hot when charging, but haven't had it heat up under load yet.

    Refer to above answers on ergonomics. It's a huge phone, and it's harder to hold onto than the Nexus 5 or even the Galaxy S5. On the level of the Note 3.

    Yes. CM allows you too change the behavior-for example, you could set the menu key to be a back button and the back button to be a menu key if you wanted.

    One thing for everyone to keep in mind is the phone is still running pre production software. Things like voice control and battery life may not be as great now but will improve by the time the phone is launched.

    The phone is sold off contract, online only. It has antenna bands to support AT&T and T-Mobile. It will be a cold day in Hell before Verizon carries an unlocked phone.

    There are five gestures available when the screen is off. You can draw a circle to turn on the camera, draw a V to turn on the flash light and you can swipe 2 fingers to play/pause music or draw arrows left and right to skip music tracks. Though this has created many bugs for me. The flashlight and music will often turn on when the phone's in my pocket or just sitting on a table, so i think things are a little too sensitive on the screen and it's picking up "touches" that aren't actually there. I'm turning these gestures off for now so my music stops turning on randomly :P .

    It has Google Now, it has all the Google apps available to it. But this is not the Google Now Launcher, it's Trebuchet, so you'd have to sideload that yourself.

    I recall roughly 11.2GB being free on this 16GB model when i just had a few apps installed. I have about 40 apps installed now and have 9.59GB free.
