    It's an android phone but I am amazed at the specs for such a low price. Even the 1520 which I have has lower specs but twice the price

    I guess sales of pretty much all phones will stop then, right? Cos on specs alone this takes out several iphones, android phones and all WP phones so no point in selling them anymore....

    Must be this one: OnePlus One - OnePlus.net

    Operating System CyanogenMod 11S based on Android 4.4

    I clicked to buy it... "This phone requires an invite to buy"

    Meh. What is it, a Kickstarter?

    A $300 Android phone that you can't buy.

    I don't understand what are you trying to do here, but never compare any android with Nokia and Windows Phone because it doesn't make sense. Windows Phones are like iPhone, specs doesn't matter. All these droids has these specs because the newer the software and also the higher the screen resolution the more power you need. iPhone and Lumia phones first master current hardware before going further (this btw is what makes me use WP instead of Android.)

    Also 730 will sell well, even I am considering it already if the specs are right. I just got 930 and it feels right, but that pebbled shape that I'm used to and also the size is coming back with 730, while 930 feels blocky and just big..we'll see.

    You are refering to the OnePlus One from Oppo.

    And 730, are you kidding me? This Cyanogen modded droid blows every single windows phone out of the galaxy(except perhaps the 1020 in respect to the brilliant camera), and makes the galaxy s5 look like an useless extravagance.
    Not only does it meet the One from Htc head on regarding performance, but it also threatens iPhones.

    The only snag i see, is the Chinese company bit. No offence but, personal experience tells me that chinese products have never lasted a... month, to be honest.

    No, the snag is that it will not cost $300 when sold to make a profit (they clearly sell at cost or below to make a name for themselves) and if you try to buy it by clicking on the Buy button at least, you can't.

    Let's face it, the only thing that stands out on it is the price and 3GB of RAM. Once they will want to make a profit, it won't have the benefit of price anymore.

    And it still has nothing to do with the 730.

    Its a midrange phone by the price its selling and has a lot to do with the 730 as its competing against the mid range phone so people will more likely pick this phone rather then the 730 as it has better specs....obviously

    IT WILL COST THAT MUCH WHEN ITS SOLD. that's why it made it appear in the England's best newspaper. The person who reviews it actually bought it

    If you read the article iI wrote its all about the specs...you tell me where I was comparing the operating system??? I am going in about the specs and as its in mid range price with the 730 the point I am making is that this has better specs ao will no doubt be killing the 730 in the sales area

    No. It won't. 730 will be priced alot cheaper. Along the lines of $250 maybe.

    Also, Oneplus One has a limited availability. So, it won't snatch too much of a market share of any other phone.

    Well, it is not from Oppo. Also, it has a limited availability ie. invites.

    I'm going to disagree with your premise.

    The 730 is DoA if the 630 had 1GB of RAM, proximity sensors and an FFC, but the 630 doesn't have those.

    730 will, like the 720 before it, and the 710 that started it all, carve out a sizeable niche for itself.

    I think the point that OP is making is that price-wise, WP does not compete very well. People say that its not fair to compare the 635 to the Moto G for example. Some on this forum have said it should be compared to the Moto E. Specs-wise I'd agree, but price-wise, no way. Here in the UK the 635 and the 4G Moto G are very close on pricing (in some stores less than 10 between them). Using that as a gauge, the 730 is likely to be quite a lot more expensive than the Moto G which will be the phone it competes with on specs. I'd probably say it'll be 199.99 here in the UK.

    Similarly with the 930. It's price at the moment is extortionate! Considering the age of the processor inside the phone it should not be retailing for over 100 more than something like the Xperia Z2.

    When your average consumer is inside a phone store and looking at a phone, they will use the price as a benchmark, not specs. They won't care that Nokia want the 630 to compete with the Moto E, the price tells them that its competing with the Moto G. This needs to change.

    Having said all this, I enjoy my 635. Love the green colour! :)

    You can't buy the oneplus one instore or online like other phones. You need an invite. Now tell me, would the average consumer wait for an invite or get the phone as soon as they can. Also we don't even know the price of the 730 yet. Calm down.
