The OnePlus 1 from 2014 made a huge splash in terms of hype. It was a very powerful phone set to topple the flagships. On top of the big specs, they had a unique method of selling the mobile — it could only initially be purchased through invites. It’s a marketing strategy designed to promote intrigue due to exclusivity.

Interestingly there were a couple of decent copycats that aped the OnePlus 1 that were actually released prior the real deal.

Now that they’ve got a bit of a name for themselves, this time around they’re doing things a bit differently, with the OnePlus 2 being available without any invites. I think this is a smart decision.

The specs of the OnePlus 2, as a flagship killer should rightfully carry, are top-notch.

OnePlus 2 Specs

  • 5.5″ FHD Corning III Gorilla Glass
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994)
  • 64bit [email protected]
  • Adreno™ 430 GPU
  • 3GB/4GB RAM LPDDR4
  • 16GB/64GB ROM
  • 13MP w/optical image stabilization (OIS) & laser focus
  • 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
  • 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz
  • 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz
  • 3300mAh battery
  • Dual-SIM
  • Fingerscan ID

The SoC used in the OnePlus Two is Qualcomm’s top SoC. There are two different versions of the OnePlus 2. One is a  3GB/16GB version which should be enough for most users. The other is 4GB/64GB and is aimed at those requiring a large amount of storage.

We’re beginning to see some very hi-res screens available, as high as 1440*2560 and OnePlus has opted to stick with FHD 1080*1920. They’re open about their reason for doing so, which is that resolutions beyond 400PPI can’t be distinguished from 400 (some would say even lower), and especially when viewed from a typical distance of 6-12″ (15-30cm). The benefit? Increased performance, better battery life, less strain on the system, and a lower price tag.

Also notably the camera has optical image stabilization. This is a nice bump up for picture taking, as it cancels out the small movements which often cause blur in photos.

The OnePlus 2 is in stock now, so if you’re looking for an ultra-powered flagship phone with the top SoC in the game, but don’t want to pay $700-900, consider the OnePlus 2.
