OnePlus 2 review – the new “flagship killer” smartphone of 2015

OnePlus 2 is the newest Chinese 2016 Flagship Killer, but is it really worthy of this title already? We shall see next year. For now, it seems that this device could be a 2015 flagship killer, if not for some of its own shortcomings. Its best features are the beautiful display with a solid build and its low price for the features it offers. On the other side of the barricade are its heat up issues, the lack of a microSD, fast charging and NFC.       Design and display   OnePlus 2 is a well-earned step-up from OnePlus One, replacing its plastic body with a sturdy metal frame and a grainy grey back frame made of stronger plastic. If you are not pleased with the regular back cover, you can choose a bamboo, rosewood or dark apricot wood or Kevlar one for an additional $27. The display is relatively well-sized at 5.5 inches with full HD resolution at 401 ppi. The viewing angles are pretty good,with vivid colors and crispy brightness.       The device is a bit on the thick side, at 9.9mm, and it weighs a bit too, at 175grams or 6.17oz.   An important addition to the OnePlus 2 is the fingerprint scanner below the display.

OnePlus team teases new device coming Q2 or Q3 of 2015

OnePlus is still playing hard to get when it comes to its special One as we still have to fish an invite before buying the device. When are we going to start getting in virtual lines for a newer one? According to some OnePlus voices, the OnePlus TWO(?) launches sometime in Q2 or Q3 of 2015. The timeframe was announced on a subreddit Q&A today and it would mean that the next device pops out on the market a year after the release of the first one. There are no news regarding the way of purchase the new device will have, but we sure hope we won’t have to beg for invites again! The announcement also implies that the device would be smaller than the 5.5” OnePlus One. The new device may already be in post-production as we speak though!
