OnePlus 2 (2016 flasgships killer) review

IMG_6876After successful launch on OnePlus One now we see its successor – OnePlus 2.

In first look we can see some difference like brand new hardware home button with fingerprint sensor.
Some people don’t like it but we certainly do. Also the new design of OnePlus 2 looks really more attractive then its predecessor.
And it’s not only the design that is great but also this device is build by latest high tech hardware parts available on the market.
The Chinese company who decide to fight against expensive well know branded flagships is cutting good share from the smartphone’s market.
But is the  OnePlus 2 really “2016 flasgships killer” as they claim?

Well lets take a look on the hardware specifications:

  • 5.5″ LTPS display with 1080p resolution; 401ppi; Corning Gorilla Glass 4;

Well, the specs look really impressive!
This is the first Smartphone in the world with USB type-C port.
The 64-bit Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 gives the device real “muscle” power along with 4GB of RAM.
Even the company broke up with CyanoGen team  they use latest Android 5.1.1 with own  Oxygen 2.0 OS.

The other improvement is the magnesium alloy frame which gives the phone final touch.
And the changeable back covers is another is another advantage which give easy access to dual SIM slots but not to the 3,300mAh battery which is not user-replaceable.

Now lets see what the OnePlus 2 box includes.

The OnePlus 2 comes in fancy red box, along with a 2A charger, which is now inside the main box unlike with the OnePlus One, and a tangle-free USB type-C cable.

The cable is not only the USB Type-C connector reversible by design, but OnePlus has also made the other standard-A plug reversible, so no matter which end of the cable you’re attaching, you never have to worry about getting it wrong.

So summarize what we have in hand:


  • USB Type-C;
  • 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset with 4GB (64GB model) of RAM;
