oneplus 2 review aa (28 of 38)

Admittedly, OnePlus has made a few mistakes on the steep learning curve it finds itself on, but the young company has recently had a string of wins: free shipping on orders over $100, an invite-free OnePlus X faster than any other OnePlus device, and now a permanent price reduction on the OnePlus 2. That’s right, OnePlus has announced that it has found that “Goldilocks” point in production where producing a OnePlus has never been cheaper. So, in true OnePlus style, they are passing that saving on to you.

The OnePlus 2 now starts at $349 (down from $389), €345 (down from €399) and £249 (down from £289). These prices are all for the 64 GB OnePlus 2 in the U.S., Europe and United Kingdom, as the 16 GB OnePlus 2 is no longer available in those regions. You can hit the OnePlus forum for more information or head straight to oneplus.net to pick up the flagship killer at a reduced rate.

The OnePlus 2 features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, octa-core Snapdragon 810, 4 GB of RAM, OxygenOS running on Android 5.1 Lollipop, a 13 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and laser auto-focus, plus a 5 MP front-facing camera and 3,300 mAh battery. Anyone that bought a OnePlus 2 in the last 15 days will get a refund of the difference in price and to celebrate Valentine’s Day, there’s a free StyleSwap cover or OnePlus X cover for new OnePlus purchases.

    is it a good idea to buy one now? Or should I better wait until the “3” will be released?

    • Shyam

      Since Sd820 is released and phones have started to come out.. It’s better to wait…

    • balcobomber25

      MWC is 2 weeks away, I wouldn;t buy any phone right now. Over the next month we will learn about most new phones coming out. Especially the SD820 and Helios X20 flagships.

      depends on what your requirements are. this phone is pretty much capable as it is. but if you are looking for the most uptodate specs, then you will always be waiting.

    Im currently using a oneplus 2 (to post this) and can say its worth the price but be damn sure you root and upgrade because OOS SUX! you want to know why they put a 3300mah bettery in it? Because your gonna need it! You’ll be lucky to get half a days worth of use out of it! And if your the type of person who doesn’t mind being tethered to your charger using your phone it doubles as a hot plate in about 10 15 minutes. But with that being said the phone does have some amazing specs for a phone in its price range (even at the original $389.00) And forget about tech support HAHA… Support they’ll repeat your issue back to you then tell you to reboot your phone or send it back to them in SOMEWHERE, China. Wait until Marshmallow arrives and buy a HUWEI 5X ?

    To say Oneplus has made a few mistakes is a massive understatement lol. They shoot themselves in the foot with each new release and their invite system.

    I’m using the oneplus2 now for almost a year and i must say it’s perfect. The battery lasts two days or more. Fast nice piece of technique. Never had problems with it.

  • Total_telecom

    Uh yeah, they have done nothing to differentiate themselves, they need to focus on the weaknesses of Samsung in order to be successful.

    AA rss feed for Flipboard stopped 4 days ago, plz advise.

  • aaloo

    great phone, but outside of nerd-sphere, no one seems to know about this phone. poor advertisements and promotions. i have yet to see a single one plus phone out in the wild. see more blackberries than one plus phones, which is a ridiculous.

    I’m a OnePlus fan. Great specs for great prices.
