OnePlus One Vs Galaxy S5

The OnePlus One is the new kid on the block, and you have to wonder if it has what it takes to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5.

OnePlus is a young upstart mobile company, and it looks as though it is ready to take risks judging by the guts of its OnePlus One. With 3GB of RAM, ample built-in storage and a workhorse of a processor – not to mention a killer price – it would be hard to ignore the OnePlus One. But the issue is there are so many other great Android phones on the market right now such as the Galaxy S5. Can the upstart newcomer overcome a device such as the S5? That’s for you to judge.

Check out the specs below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
