OnePlus 2 Key Test Findings

  1. The 4K and 1080p video samples are good in quality, but not impressive .
  2. Camera photos come out very good with enough detail and high dynamic range, but unless you are using Clear Shot mode the fine detail rendition is nothing that special .
  3. Audio quality is excellent with an external amplifier, but average with headphones plugged in .
  4. Video player supports all video formats we tried, but AC3 audio and subtitles are a no-go, which isn’t unexpected .
  5. The downclocked CPU sorts the Snapdragon 810 overheating issues.
  6. The processor still does a very good job, while the Adreno 430 is a real beast. Web browsing benchmarks are behind the curve.
  7. Oxygen OS is a clean and light Android skin, we enjoyed the lockscreen gestures and fingerprint security is a bonus .
  8. Rich wireless and wired connectivity options, but there is no microSD slot and you would need a proprietary microUSB OTG adapter .
  9. Battery life is decent, but the standby performance is a letdown .
  10. The display is excellent: it isn’t among the brightest we’ve seen, but offers very deep blacks, excellent viewing angles and contrast. The sunlight legibility however is average.
  11. Build quality is great, the magnesium alloy frame looks good and the sandstone rear offers excellent grip .
