iPhone 6 vs. OnePlus One – Best smartphone reader’s choice – March Mobile Madness 2015

Yesterday we pitted the Nexus 6 against the BlackBerry Classic, with the Classic taking the win. It looks like BlackBerry fans came to vote from all over the world and gave the physical keyboard favorite a big boost.  It will now go on to face the Sony Xperia Z3 next week.

Today we have the Apple iPhone 6 going up against TechnoBuffalo’s phone of last year, the OnePlus One.

We’re expecting other high profile phones to hit the market this fall, too, rounding out what will likely be remembered as one of the strongest years in mobile ever.

But there’s another device people are excitedly talking about, a dark horse that’s rising from the smartphone ether, and it’s already showing tremendous promise. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The OnePlus One is this year’s so-called “flagship killer,” and it has many mobile nerds gawking… read the full review
