With flagship Android smartphones powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC easily hitting the $1,000 price point, many people are looking to cheaper alternatives that won't break the bank. Luckily, OnePlus has just a phone in the works that's called the Nord. OnePlus got official with the name of the smartphone earlier this week, and now exec Carl Pei is giving a few additional details on the mid-range smartphone. The OnePlus X was the company's first foray into the mid-range market, and launched at a $299 price point.

If you've been anxiously waiting for Android's 5.0 Lollipop to hit your phone, you probably won't take much comfort with the knowledge that many others are already enjoying it. According to Google's own tracking, 1.6% of the active Android phones out there pack the 5.0 sucker sweetness, and if that doesn't seem too impressive, the OS did just come out in November, and rollout has for some reason been slow on many devices. We should soon see that 1.6% get a major boost. It's not too surprising to see that 4.4 KitKat is the most common build floating around out there, with a share of 39.7%, but what does stick out is the fact that both 4.1 and 4.2 have individual shares three times greater than...
