How to order OnePlus One using PPObox service

The onePlus one also called the 2014 flagship killer comes packed with high end stuffs and is priced at $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 64GB version. This handset is available on some online stores like oppomart, pandawill etc but way overpriced.

To buy from oneplus store you will need an invitation. I got one from Mr. Amit S. R. and have already ordered the OnePlus one Sandstone Black 64GB version. OnePlus (the company) does not ship the product to India. But there is a way to get it.

I will be getting it via PPObox.com. To know more on how you can do that just check this link. I followed the exact procedure.

As for the specs the One is using the 801 qualcomm snapdragon 2.5GHz quad core processor with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. It sports a 5.5 inch screen with gorilla glass 3 protection and resolution of 1080p.

There is 13MP rear camera using the Exmor IMX214 sensor and 5MP front camera. The handset can shoot 4K video and slow motion in 720p @ 120fps. The One also comes with 3 mics for noise cancellation. Main features are 4G, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS (GLONASS) and Wi-Fi (b/g/n/ac). This is with single SIM (micro) slot, runs Cyanogenmod OS (based on Android 4.4) and houses a 3100 mAh Li-Po battery.

oneplus one 64GB ordered

I have completed the order $364.34 with shipping to PPObox in USA. Placed the order on 8th August and on 12th it was shipped. It will first get delivered to the PPObox address in New York, USA and then will be shipped to India via PPObox.

So far I have spend $364 (Rs. 23,254.88) and I guess it will be less than Rs. 3000 [more] (including custom) to get it delivered to India.

Below is the transit time and the amount I paid for shipping and customs.
