Antelife are based in China with a very good proven track record and have actually shown me physical proof they have had the OnePlus One in stock (although by the time many of you read this I guess those stock to have been depleted).

Important: before buying the OnePlus One from China

The OnePlus One phones in China are sold in batches through JD.com without invitation. This is a proven method for China and one which Huawei and Xiaomi have been using for years with success, it also means that there are many more OnePlus Ones in China than there are elsewhere.

Before ordering the OnePlus One from China you will want to weigh up the pros and cons:

Pros

  • You don’t need an invitation.
  • The phone will be in your hands quicker than the international model
  • You will be the envy of your friends

Cons

  • The prices will likely be higher than the official retail price
  • The Chinese version of the OPO comes with ColorOS NOT CyanogenMod 11S, however you will be able to install CM.
  • You might have issues with warranty turn around time.
  • So keep these points in mind before ordering.

Head over to antelife.com, and order your brand new OnePlus One flagship today

Oppo Find 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Oppo Find 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 quick look

 The Oppo Find 7 has officially been unveiled, and as was the case with the Find 5 and the N1 before it, Oppo has aimed to push the boundaries once again with its latest flagship smartphone, with the premier version featuring a Quad HD display. Competing in the phablet segment, it’ll be very interesting to see how the Find 7 compares to the Samsung device that currently dominates this market. Here’s a quick look at the Oppo Find 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3!
Design

Find 7 Quad HD vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3-1190039

There are two very different design philosophies at work here, with the smooth and rounded lines of the Galaxy Note 3 contrasting with the more angular design of the Find 7. Like it’s predecessor, the Oppo Find 5, the Find 7 features a minimalist look with a premium feel, without too many embellishments. The premium version of this device comes with a carbon fiber back panel with a woven pattern, reminiscent of the Motorola Droid line, while the Galaxy Note 3 offers an equally nice feel in the hand, with the welcome move away from glossy plastic to the faux leather plastic material.

The front of the Find 7 is all black and distraction free, with no logos or physical buttons to draw attention away from the beautiful display. While the display of the Galaxy Note 3 shines through as well, you do get the signature button layout at the front, with a physical home button flanked by two capacitive keys. On its flat sides, the Find 7 features two sleek faux chrome rings, while the Note 3 uses the same material to mimic the pages of a notebook.

Even though the Galaxy Note 3 features a display that is slightly larger, the dimensions of both devices are quite similar. the Oppo Find 7 is a millimeter taller, but is noticeably narrower, making the latter a little easier to hold. The Galaxy Note 3 is almost a millimeter thinner though, with the 3 grams difference in weight negligible.

Display

Find 7 Quad HD vs Note 3 redux AA-1190095

The premium version of the Find 7 takes the lead in a display comparison, at least, if pixel density is of paramount importance to you. The 5.5-inch screen features a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD), resulting in a whopping pixel density of 538 ppi. On the other hand is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, that comes with a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of “just” 1080p, translating to a pixel density of 386 ppi.

While not many will care or particularly notice the contrast in sharpness, the difference certainly exists.

As for the technologies underlying the screens of the two contenders, we have a beautiful IPS LCD (Low Temperature Polysilicone) display on the Find 7, with the Galaxy Note 3 featuring a vivid Super AMOLED screen.

Performance and Hardware

Find 7 Quad HD vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3-1180975

The Oppo Find 7 has a slight advantage over the Galaxy Note 3 with its upgraded quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, clocked at 2.5 GHz. This is the same processor that powers the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2, so the Find 7 is certainly in elite company. Along with the Adreno 330 and 3 GB of RAM, the processing package of the Find 7 is the best that is currently available.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 also comes with 3 GB of RAM and the Adreno 330 GPU, with the SoC being the older 2.3 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. In theory, the biggest difference between the two processing packages is the slightly higher speeds of the CPU, GPU, and memory interface. Either way, performance is going to be lightning fast, with both smartphones ably handling anything you can throw at it.

Both devices come with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a current high-end Android smartphone. The Find 7 does come with expandable memory, an option not available with the Find 5 or the N1, and can accommodate the newly launched 128 GB microSD cards, as opposed to the 64 GB max of the Galaxy Note 3.

Both phones have large batteries that are also removable, but even without needing to replace the battery, you should be still be able to get more than a full day of usage from both. The Find 7 comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy Note 3 manages to squeeze in a larger 3,200 mAh unit into a sleeker body. That being said, the Oppo Find 7 comes with a special fast-charging technology that, according to Oppo, makes it best-in-class. You should be able to charge the Find 7 from zero to 75 percent in just 30 minutes, with a 5 minute charge giving you almost 2 hours of talk time, which is absolutely amazing in a pinch.

Camera

Find 7 Quad HD vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3-1190024

The 13 MP Sony Exmor RS sensor of the Find 7 is combined with a 6 part lens and powerful software features,  one of which is called Super Zoom, which combines 10 images taken at the same time to create one 50 MP image with a lot of detail. On the front, you get a 5 MP camera with a wide lens, that allows for an 80 degree field of view. Both cameras have 2.0 aperture lenses, which is great for low-light photography for obtaining the blurred background effect that we all love. It’s a very promising setup that we’re looking forward to putting through its paces.

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 holds its own in this department, with its great 13 MP rear shooter, which also coupled with tons of software features.

Software

Find 7 Quad HD vs Note 3 redux AA-1190087

The Find 7 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which is somewhat disappointing as we’d have expected a current Android smartphone release to feature Android 4.4 Kitkat. You get Oppo’s Color OS on top, with a similar implementation to what is found on the N1, as opposed to uber cheerful version of the Find 5. Additions include support for various gestures, as well as a range of widgets, and other small enhancements.

You get the well-known TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, on top of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Samsung is rolling out Android 4.4 to the Note 3 currently, which will introduce small design changes, along with some Kitkat specific functionality.

OPPO is recruiting Ambassadors once again

OF_post.jpg

Back in January we had a bold idea of launching the first batch of the Ambassador Program which would enable 9 people from all over the world to become OPPO Ambassadors and translate the software running on the Find 5 to their native languages. We did this so that Ofans could feel right at home from the moment they first turned on their new OPPO devices. We believed they could do a great job and we were excited to start working with them.

Since the first batch of the program was a success, we decided to launch the second batch back in May to include 6 more languages. We received an unbelievable amount of applications and although it wasn’t easy to pick the best candidates, time has proved our choices to be just right as we’ve found great people to work with.

To strengthen our relationship with our Ambassadors and give something back in return for all their hard work, we invited all of them to Beijing, China to attend and take part in launching our latest flagship phone, the OPPO N1. See what our Ambassadors had to say about the launch in this video.

Today, we’re expanding the Global Ambassador Program to include 5 new languages and we’re also looking for a new French Ambassador since sadly, he is unable to continue assisting us with translations.

  • Romanian
  • Ukrainian
  • Polish
  • Czech
  • Hungarian
  • French

You’ll be helping us translate ColorOS, our new software which will run on all our future devices, so by translating a set of strings you’re supporting a number of devices.

Benefits:

  • Early access to private Beta firmwares
  • Receive the latest flagship devices
  • One half price coupon per flagship (starting from N1)
  • Special forum title
  • Access to OPPO events
  • Access to confidential information (in near future, after an NDA is signed)
  • Be a part of a close knit circle, getting to know friends from all over the world
  • Be a part of the development of great products

Requirements:

  • You need to be at least 18 years old and to prove this we will need you to send us a copy of your ID, driving license, passport or student card (if it has a photo) that clearly states your name and date of birth. We will only use it to confirm you meet our requirements and it will be kept confidential.
  • You need to be able to have a few hours of free time every week.
  • You need to be able to communicate clearly in English.
  • You need to command written proficiency in your mother language. The better you are able to prove this, the higher your chances will be of being selected as an OPPO Ambassador.

How to apply:

  • Write a cover letter that includes the following info:
    • Brief introduction.
    • What is your understanding of OPPO?
    • Your history with technology.
    • Why do you want to be an OPPO Ambassador?
    • We only want the best. Why do you think you can do a good job? Do you have any related experiences? What jobs have you held before? Here, we want to see that you can complete your tasks and that you are reliable.
    • Include a photo of yourself if you want. We would love to get to know our ambassadors on a personal level.
  • Reply to this thread after sending in your application.

Send the information to adam@oppo.com with the subject “Ambassador application for X Language”, preferably in a PDF document and include your forum name in it. Applying through forums or via PM will not be accepted.

To be an OPPO Ambassador is free of charge, but there will be work (within reasonable limits) expected of you. We expect our Ambassadors to help us localize ColorOS to their local market, which includes a complete system language translation, product feedback and testing. We will only accept one ambassador from each location, and the ambassadorship lasts until the ambassador is terminated or resigns.

Once selected, OPPO Ambassadors will have access to the latest OPPO smartphones (OPPO N1 and beyond), OPPO goodies, unreleased firmware, direct contact with OPPO staff, company sponsored trips, and an important role in OPPO products.

New OPPO Ambassadors will be selected and announced on Wednesday, 27th of November, 2013.
