Meanwhile, OnePlus 2 is not the best phone by a long shot but with such an affordable price tag, the definition of ‘best’ meets a few changes. Google’s Nexus phones were quite affordable but after including premium options, the price increased significantly.
Xiaomi doesn’t have any influence in the west, so OnePlus 2 should be able to gain some control over the Android market share. Although there are phones like Moto G which are available at budget prices, they certainly don’t offer specs that are even remotely comparable to the OnePlus 2.
The display in the OnePlus 2 doesn’t look good on paper when you see figures like 5.5inches, 1080×1920 pixels and 403ppi. However, it comes with a 1500:1 contrast ratio compared to the 1400:1 ratio on the iPhone 6.
The Oxygen OS is available stock on the OnePlus 2 and this is the company’s proprietary UI layer on top of Android. The OS is light-weight and avoids the heftiness you receive with LG, Samsung and especially HTC. It has a 13MP camera with dual-LED flash and can also record 4K videos with added features like slow-motion and time-lapse.
Stay tuned for more updates on OnePlus 2!
