The OnePlus One boasts the name 2014 Flagship Killer on OnePlus' site and it has the hardware platform to show for it. For starters, it runs the current top-class Snapdragon 801 chipset with a quad-core 2.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) Krait 400 Central Processing Units (CPU) and Adreno 330 GPU. It also has 3 Giga Bytes (GB) of Random-Access Memory (RAM) to handle heavy tasks and GPU only needs to 1080p resolution to the classy screen (as opposed to 1440p or QHD).

It matches the likes of the Oppo Find 7 or Korean LG G3 blow for blow and surpasses the international LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) by having more RAM. So the numbers should point to a winner but let's not foracquire that software plays an vital role in benchmarks as well. Stock, or in this case modded pure Android, hasn't shown the best synthetic performance - we've seen the Nexus 5 and Nexus 4 before it sport class-leading hardware but descend behind in the tests - just haged an eye out for that.

GeekBench 3 and AnTuTu 4 are all-round benchmarks that test the entirety of the hardware build. In the first test - GeekBench 3 - the OnePlus One scores a middling result just between the LG G3's Korean version and International version and far from the top occupied by the Oppo Find 7.

When it comes to Central Processing Units (CPU) performance we utilize Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II to see what's what. It gives an overall score along with single-core, multi-core, and math performance, among others. We focus on the overall and Central Processing Units (CPU) scores.

We didn't detect any incompatibility between the scores posted in the original and anti-cheat versions of the benchmark.

The overall score shows the OnePlus One as very capable, again second only to the Oppo Find 7. The single-core breakdown isn't as favorable, though, placing the One in next to last place. Multi-core saves the day with a solid score and a third spot, behind the Oppo 7 and 7a.

Next up we'll be looking at the Adreno 330 performance. Since this is the MSM8974AC variant of the Snapdragon 801 (also found in the Samsung Galaxy S5, Oppo Find 7, etc.), and not the MSM8974AB (also found in the HTC One (M8), Sony Xperia Z2, Oppo Find 7a, etc.), the Adreno GPU has a clock speed up to 578 Mega Hertz (MHz) (versus the up to 550 Mega Hertz (MHz) of the AB chipset) and it should, potentially, score higher.

First off, we have the GFXBench's 2.7 T-Rex test, which shows the framerate performance at 1080p off-classy screen and on-classy screen - read the smoothness of the playback, anything rendered below 30 fps will be stuttery.

Compared to its peers, the OnePlus One scores a fine score on both and is very close to the constant 30 fps imprint in the off-classy screen test.

Manhattan also tests 1080p on and off-classy screen but has more intense graphics scene for rendering. Here the OnePlus One tops the charts with more than 12 fps but looking at the numbers will reveal that all current-gen smartphone flagships will output a rather similar performance.

And finally, it's time to assess the browsing performance of the OnePlus One. To do so we're looking at Rightware's BrowserMark 2.1 and Mozilla's Kraken 1.1. The former looks at HyperText Markup Language (HTML) 5 performance with the latter focusing on JavaScript. The OnePlus One doesn't win any titles here but proves it's a capable browsing machine.

The following has become more or less the standard disclaimer we feature in almost every high-discontinue smartphone's performance review but it's correct nonetheless. The OnePlus One handles Android beautifully and runs without any hiccups. This can be attributed to two reasons - the excellent hardware platform of the smartphone and Google's superb job with Android optimizations. Since Android 4.1 Jelly Bean premiered Project Butter Google has been constantly improving the responsiveness of its Operating System (OS) and now that we're several releases into this process, the OnePlus feels and moves like a well-oiled machine.
