Unboxing and Hands On with the OnePlus 2

Browse This Page

OnePlus 2 has finally launched and will be made available in India from August 11 at a price of Rs. 22,999 for the 16GB variant and  Rs. 24,999 for the 64GB variant.

OnePlus 2 feels lightweight, thanks to the maufacturer’s decision to use an aluminium alloy in the body. It has a 5.5 inch display and comes with the classic Sandstone Black back cover, which feels nice to hold. The back panel can be easily customised using OnePlus’ StyleSwap covers available in four variants – Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood, and Kevlar. The covers can be swapped without any hassle, but it still takes some effort to remove the cover.

The lock screen provides a quick shortcut to the camera and the phone dialler. The screen can be unlocked via the fingerprint scanner located on the home button and it usually takes a second to unlock the phone through the fingerprint. The device can store up to five different fingerprints – which is useful.

The OnePlus 2 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core 64-bit processor with 4GB of RAM. The processor is capable of 4K streaming, which is a shame because the display is limited to 1080p resolution. The display is bright though, which makes the 1080p resolution enough for a 5.5 inch display. The device runs on Android 5.1 with OxygenOS. The device has a feature called the ‘shelf’, which is activated when you swipe to the left on the home screen; it opens your preferred contacts and recent apps.

Another feature that grabs attention is the button on the left side of the phone, called the slider which toggles between three notification profiles – ‘None’, ‘Priority’ and ‘All’. The camera is nice and was fast enough to capture photos.

OnePlus 2 comes with a USB type-C port, a first for any flagship smartphone. Reversible in nature, the USB type-C allows for faster data transfers and is compatible with almost every device with standard USB ports.

Overall, the phone seems to deliver what the company promised. However, we’d advise you to wait for our review.

    one plus 2 is not a worthy upgrade from one plus one. 1+1 was a sensation when it released. Wait for such a phone.

    Laser Auto Focus, Fingerprint sensor, 4GB RAM, Better battery, smaller form factor, fresh OS, SD 810, Metal body, Styleswap covers, fantastic camera…. If these things are useless for you, then why do you want a smartphone. All things are useless, go back to feature phone. #JustSaying

  • Abhishek Trivedi
  • Sagar Terekar

    Not at all good… Is it really an upgrade to OnePlus One…??? Not at all good… Totally disappointed… Just for a mere camera upgrade (hardly a difference) and Performance upgrade (again hardly a difference) and some other features which in reality hardly matter (useless for me)…. Why would would want to upgrade to this??? I don’t understand…
    And OnePlus One looks way better than this one.
