Even the big names in the smartphone industry should be shaken with the appearance of the dark horse in the body of OnePlus 2. Last year, everyone has been surprised by the brand’s offer through its alpha beast, the One Plus One. It had met its promises and more than those of the crowd’s expectations. Now, the 900 employees of the company are facing a great pressure of exceeding the predecessor. Hopefully, the successor would not fail us all.
What We Consider Great
Finally, here’s a brand that caters on sense of elegant art for gadget skin. But let’s skip on this skin-deep detail. We love smartphones with dual SIM capacity but what keeps OnePlus 2 above the myriad of handsets that offer this detail is that it is the first dual SIM handset to use the latest USB Type-C plug. Additionally, the fingerprint sensor they incorporated for security and protection claims a much faster reaction than that of Samsung’s S6. As tested, their claim had been proven true.
Oh, and do we have to mention the superfast 3GB and 4GB variants of RAM?
What We Consider Unsatisfactory
OnePlus refused to endow its handset with a QuadHD display which is kind of a bummer since the screen looks kind of anemic, we daresay.
Just like we already said in the introduction, competitors even those with the biggest names should consider OnePlus a serious rival. With half the price of what they have to offer and the very specs of their flagships, their only edge might be their names and the loyalty of their aficionados.
