The OnePlus One is one of the first phones to ship with Cyanogen’s custom version of Android. It’s also a pretty powerful phone given its $299 starting price. Now that the phone is starting to ship in limited quantities, the folks at iFixit decided to take it apart and see what makes it tick.

In other phone-related news, Amazon unveiled the Fire Phone today. The retailer’s first smartphone is available for pre-order for $199 and up with a contract, or $649 without and it should start shipping on July 25th. Developers can already start digging into the SDK to create apps that take advantage of the phone’s special features.
