OnePlus One Specifications

Are you like me in the sense that you feel that most of the top-end smart phones are overpriced? If you are, you will love this post because I am going to be presenting you with information about a great phone packed with top-end specifications at a lower cost than its established rivals.

This smartphone is the product of OnePlus, a new Chinese start-up headed by Peter Lau, it is called the OnePlus One and it comes at $299 for 16-GB version and the $349 to the 64-GB version. Compare this to to flagship phones like Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G2 and HTC One (M8) that cost $649.

It runs on a open source modified version of Android 4.4 KitKat called CyanogenMod which is a more secure version of the OS.

I think I have said enough, now, have a look at its specifications.

The OnePlus One might be the hottest smartphone revelation of 2014

Breaking News: Manchester United Sack David Moyes

Tweets from @ManUtd confirming David Moyes Sack by the club

Manchester United manager, David Moyes has been sacked by the club this morning. This follows an abysmal season where United will not win any trophy and are certainly out of the UEFA Champions League for next season. Many of the clubs fans had been unhappy with the poor results under David Moyes and it seems a 0-2 defeat to his former club, Everton proved to be the last straw that broke the proverbial camel's back.

Correcting the misconception: An Election is Not an Excuse for Failure

There is an increasing noise coming from the camp of President Goodluck Jonathan's supporters that the terrorism and mass killings that Nigerians have been subjected to are a ploy to prevent him from contesting the 2015 presidential elections. Hence, they have conveniently forgotten that he is currently president and has the primary duty of protecting the life and property of Nigerians. It is unfortunate that the president and his supporters continue to exhibit a gross inability to govern effectively. They seem more focused on the perks of office and the great resources at their disposal and are not interested in stopping the wanton destruction of lives and property particularly in the Northeastern part of Nigeria.

A critical look at the major sources of insecurity in Nigeria indicate two major sources being Boko Haram and the conflict between Fulani herdsman and farmers in Northern Nigeria. In both instances, the parties involved have continually shown a lack of interest in politics particular the seat of President that Goodluck Jonathan is so covetous of even whilst he occupies it. Boko Haram have made it clear that they are against western institutions one of which is the presidency. The Fulani are well-known to focus almost their entire lives to their cattle, taking power from Goodluck Jonathan does not align with this objective.

Therefore, it is very dubious for the president and his supporters to seek to hide his failure as a leader to provide adequate security for Nigerians under the toga of an "evil" opposition. The president of Nigeria is also the Commander-in-Chief of its armed forces for a reason; to be able to deal decisively with all external and internal aggression. If he is failing, he should take responsibility for that failure rather than seek to divide Nigerians along partisan, tribal or religious lines.

Nigeria is bigger than any Nigerian and the country cannot and should not be plunged into anarchy because of the incompetence and failure of leadership of a single president.
