What's This?

After the success of “OnePlus One,” the company introduced “OnePlus 2” in the market, which already seems to be one heck of a device owing to its smart design, spectacular fingerprint sensor and exclusive features.

The cost of OnePlus 2 is less compared to Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6, though the performance is just as spectacular. According to the company itself, the new model is better than any phone you can buy this year and next.


The new OnePlus 2, the 5.5-inch smartphone is quite cheap in price but not in design. The 16GB version is priced at $329 while the 64GB version is available at $389. The mobile is unlocked and runs quite well on AT&T and T-Mobile. However, you will not be able to use Verizon or Sprint network on it.

Check out the design

OnePlus 2 has a slightly smaller figure compared to its predator which makes it easier to handle. The premium metallic frame of the phone provides it with a heavy look. It looks substantial on the hand but it’s not heavy.

While giving a OnePlus 2 review, one thing that cannot be missed is the fingerprint sensor. The home button is carved out of the area of the capacitive keys to make space for the sensor. While the button layout stays at the right side, the left side has the alert slider. There is a new USB-C connector port at the bottom, making the phone more worthwhile.

Get ready for high performance

The OnePlus 2 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. The Oxygen OS makes it smooth and fast. As far as games are concerned, you are going to experience great 3D gaming.

The hardware part is strong

The OnePlus 2 comes with a 4GB RAM. It comes with 3300 mAh battery which ensures a longer life. However, not much change is brought by the camera. The 13-megapixel camera is pretty decent with new features added.

To conclude this OnePlus 2 review, I must say it’s a great phone at this price point.
