Pretty sure there won't be docks, particularly with the reversed connector these Chinese phones use. It's a shame it only charges at a reasonable rate with the supplied cable, weird pin layout I guess.

The cable I was using before charged it from 60% to 80% in about 20min so it won't be that. I'd say it is more likely the power adapter you're using.

Same adaptor. My usual cable wouldn't charge it completely overnight, the provided one had it charged within 5 hours.

+1 to the charging cable! But I found my  logitech UE boom usb cable was similar and is longer, been using that lately fine!


Update to the posts above and little thanks to those who have suggested which apps to use. I have finally made the phone to my liking. I have changed the runtime to ART (fix the lag), rooted the phone changed the DPI to 400 (clearer text), using floatify as notifications, Android L keyboard. I have also just flashed the Franco Kernel which has increased my on screen time to 7 hours!
This phone is GOOD!

Kopkiwi: What are peoples opinion on the camera?

 

Camera is good, focus is a bit faster than my previous find 5, non scientific responses. Haven't really been out out of my way to test it heavily but I've found so far that the default camera app never really focus' on where I think I'm touching to focus - I might go back to Snap Camera HDR.

 

The HFR video is a bit of fun. The phone records and plays back 4K DCI smoothly (though cannot assess quality on a 1080p screen of course).

I'm finding the camera excellent better than I would have expected in low light.

Does it have a motion sensor built in like M8 and Nexus 5? i.e. pedometer.

I am waiting for mine to be delivered this week hopefully.

Just went to the Oneplus One site what a clever bit of marketing , would luv to know the success rate. Its good to see that people are really thinking out side the box with marketing these days.

Now I must get a invite! or find someone to refer me! I need to be part of the group!

Hmmm... for M8 there is Fitbit app - which tracks your steps. Wonder if something like that or Runtastic can record the steps?
On M8 it doesn't use up much power at all. Possibly 0.1%.
