While all of this is is great and dandy, the coolest feature we’ve seen so far on any smartphone is the ability to use the phone without ever touching it. I’m not referring to picking up your smartphone, unlocking it/activating Siri/Google Now and then have your phone listen to your every whimpering command, no. What I am referring to is having your phone wake up, unlock and preform your command on voice command; no touching involved. Yes, this is less secure than having a lock screen or a fingerprint scanner like the iPhone 5S or the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Here’s where things get interesting, though. Oneplus One’s ability to always be ready to wake on a suggested keyword isn’t a feature that is original to this phone. In fact, there’s a chance that you’ve already came in contact with phone that can do this already. The problem is that, for some odd reason, the feature isn’t being embraced and enabled by manufactures. The ability for the phone to always be listening for a keyword is the result of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside. The very same processor that’s found in the LG G Pro 2, Nokia Lumia Icon, Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 and the Nexus 5. Don’t believe us? Check out a mod made to Android software to enable the Nexus 5 to wake-on-command:
