OnePlus makes some of the most powerful Android devices at the moment. From OnePlus One to OnePlus 5T, the journey of OnePlus has been wonderful.

OnePlus devices are the only Android devices to ship with an Alert Slider. When OnePlus first implemented it on the OnePlus One, people were skeptical about it. Some even called it a blatant copy and a mere attention seeking move. Well, guess what, they were wrong. Sure, the idea is not original, but OnePlus did a very good job in implementing the idea on Android.
