An anonymous reader writes "Spec-wise, OnePlus One will go toe-to-toe with the latest flagship phones like the Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), and Sony Xperia Z2. In some areas, it even surpasses them, and at a price point of $300. The One has the same 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC SoC as the Samsung Galaxy S5, build quality similar to the HTC One (M8), and the large 3000+ mAh battery and Sony camera of the Xperia Z2. It also runs CyanogenMod 11S, which is based on Android 4.4."

    If we can buy a single 32GB Micro SDHC card for under 20$USD and 64GB for 40$USD at Amazon.com, I'd say that almost all companies are totally ripping us off when it comes to built-in device storage.

    I'm guessing it costs them around 6$USD for 32GB and 12$USD for 64GB flash storage ICs since they buy millions of them.

    Seriously?

    So broken builds, publicly acknowledged as broken by Cyanogen, who've told us all many times that nightly builds are not for public consumption, are the entire basis for your argument here as to why people should use Omni over Cyanogen?

    Really?

    So...I gotta ask: Do you have any idea how incredibly stupid that is and how bad that makes you look?

    Cyanogen: Hey guys, this code is auto-built and it generally doesn't work. Don't use it on devices you need to use daily.

    Random Omni moron: See!!! Their codez are br0ken! People who've used their broken code for months haven't had proper functionality! Don't use them!!

    Yeah...those N1 folks are sure lucky to have you...

    and the difference in packaging costs between 16G and 64G chips is likely zero.

    I never would have pegged the price difference between 16GB and 64GB as $50.
    That means every other phone out there is practicing enormous and arbitrary price discrimination by jacking up the cost of storage.

    Well Duh! Why do you think Apple for instance doesn't allow SD cards in their phones?

    I assumed it was because they didn't want to compromise on their museum quality designs.
