one plus is somewhat of a prodigy in the tech space, with only one phone model under its belt it already managed to generate iPhone grade hype for its next model the oneplus 2 .
the oneplus 2 brings the best Snapdragon chipset around, a 5.5 inch display and a 13 megapixel camera, but it also adds a fingerprint sensor a reversible USB type-c plug dual-sim capabilities and improvements in just about all departments .
join us as we try to discover how it feels and performs in every use and beyond, when it comes to design the oneplus 2 is quite like its predecessor but it feels different .
it’s not thinner or lighter but it’s more premium, the plastic back no longer wraps around to the front and the whole handset is built around a metallic frame . Read More : OnePlus 2 Short Review
the phone ships with a sandstone back which you can also pick up any of oneplus as extra style swap covers which use other materials .
the fingerprint sensor sits under the home button and works even when the phone is locked it is quick to unlock the device, on the left there is a new three-way sound switch which you can use to quickly silence all notifications or relief only priority interruptions on .
the other Hardware novelty the USB type-c port is like microUSB on steroids, bigger, better and reversible, this implementation however doesn’t offer any real life benefits beyond reversibility .
there is no higher speed data transfer or quick charging, one thing we do like is the cool flat cable that oneplus has provided alongside the oneplus 2 itself .
the wall charger also ships inside the main box, the single loudspeaker ranked as excellent in our loudness test, which is rarity it sounds quite tinny but you can rely on it being as loud as possible .
the 5.5 inch display is 1080p which we are quite ok with but this year it’s no longer flagship killer worthy, our unit screen maxed out at 400 nits of brightness compared to the 600 nits of the previous model .
contrast however has improved greatly and blacks are much deeper on the new screen, the fron glass is reflective and it’s legibility in bright sunlight is only average .
in terms of software the oneplus 2 ships with its own oxygen OS based on android 5.1 lollipop it’s as close to vanilla Android you can get outside of the Nexus line up .
the UI is clean and the phone lacks any bloatware, the smartphone is generally snappy what we didn’t like is that oxygen OS has introduced an extra delay between pressing an app icon and it launched . Read More : OnePlus 6T Review
it means the phone appear hesitant and responds to many of our taps on the screen, on the positive side oxygen OS has been made with the oneplus 2 in mind and offers deep customers ability options .
buttons can be set up any way you want them with both long press and double tap being customizable, you can also set up gestures, drawing the letter on the locked screen will promptly open up the camera .
the shelf home screen is the leftmost and aggregates your go to apps and can fit full-size widgets, you can reorder them and set up a cover style wallpaper of your choice too we really like the system wipe dark mode too .
performance on the oneplus 2 is great even though they’re using a slightly down clock Snapdragon 810 chipset to help with the notorious overheating issues .
we found the one close to to be good in CPU tests and great at graphics test so this implementation is definitely a success, battery life was less than impressive, the 3300 milliamp hour battery was let down by poor standby times and gotta battery endurance rating of only 61 hours, which puts it somewhere in the middle of the pack .
the 13 megapixel camera has optical image stabilization and laser assisted autofocus, images come out great there’s plenty of detail great colors, dynamic range is surprisingly good too noise is very low and the camera is fast to snap photos though taking an image in low light takes considerably more time than usual .

the 5 megapixel front-facing camera turned out excellent baeksan offers a very wide field of view, video recording on the oneplus 2 is good as well with you HD video recording that we kind of missed last year’s true cinema 4k mode .
optical image stabilization keeps footage steady, but the quality of the video isn’t as impressive as that of photos, 4k videos have only averaged detail underwhelming dynamic range and our over sharpened .
overall the oneplus 2 is a well rounded smartphone with a compelling $400 price point, indeed there is no NFC onboard so no Android pay, no IR blaster, no wireless charging nope charging, no microSD slot and most importantly there is the notorious oneplus invite system .
not to mention the USB type-c port which for the time being is more of a limiting feature than anything else, at the end of the day it may be marketing and brand recognition that will weigh in and those are two points that oneplus has definitely got right .
