OnePlus 2 Review – Bringing New Features Without Losing Its Core Appeal

The OnePlus 2 has been dubbed as the “2016 Flagship Killer” by the company that made it. So, is it? This is a claim that is a bit far-fetched. But what if we make it into a “2015 Flagship Killer?” That covers more ground instead.

OnePlus 2 Review - Bringing New Features Without Losing Its Core Appeal

Could the OnePlus 2 Really Be a Flagship Killer?

For its price, the OnePlus 2 is within the same range as the Moto X Style. However, it is still pricier when comparing it to the OnePlus X. However, a quick look at the device’s spec sheet will show you that the price can easily be justified.

The OnePlus 2 Smartphone is a great performer but it is not without its own set of flaws. For instance, it does not have NFC, no microSD card slot, and there are no fast or wireless charging options. The rear plate, however, can be removed but the battery cannot. These may be minor caveats for some, but if you’re a company that claims that this phone is a “Flagship Killer,” could this smartphone be in danger of letting down its fans?

In terms of design, the new iteration has indeed delivered as compared to the plastic design that was made for the OnePlus One. It now sports a sturdy metal frame around its circumference. This gives the handset a more premium look and feel. It is also the similar choice when it comes to design for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the Note 4. The rear still retains the removable plastic back plate.

It builds a positive aura in terms of design rather than the more functional purpose of the OnePlus One. This brings a more premium and refined style which can even turn heads when you use the phone out in public. When looking on design alone, it can seriously take on the moniker as the “Flagship Killer.”

In this iteration, it still has the same size screen which measures in at 5.5-inches. The display can offer full HD resolution which offers a great pixel density of 401ppi. This means that the pixel density can easily match that of the iPhone 6S Plus’ screen when talking about display clarity. However, both handsets are easily bested by the LG G4.

The OnePlus 2 has the latest in terms of performance, looks, and power. There is also an improved camera and a fancy new fingerprint scanner. However, it is far from perfect as there are still some flaws to the device. With that being said, the company may have to rethink the phone’s title and go for something more suitable.
