Important Questions About The OnePlus 2 Answered

Browse This Page

Yesterday, we unboxed and posted a video of the OnePlus 2 on our YouTube channel, and we received many questions regarding the device. We chose some of the most common queries and made a video of it, answering each one of them. You can check out the video below:

Questions and their respective answers are given below:

Q. Does the OnePlus 2 have a Gorilla Glass? If yes, what is the version of the glass?

A. The OnePlus 2 does have Gorilla Glass, and it is the latest Gorilla Glass 4. The same is found on Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge.

Q. Where are the speakers located and are those stereo speakers?

A. People are easily confused about the speakers being stereo, as it is at the bottom of the device, next to the USB type-C connector.

Q. How is this device different from different devices?

A. Our full review of the OnePlus 2 will be out shortly, and will answer this questions.

Q. Does the OnePlus 2 has an LED notification light?

A. Yes, it does. Not only does it have an LED light, but the light can also be customized where we can change the colour of our notifications according to our wish.

Q. Will both the SIM cards run on 4G LTE?

A. Yes, both the SIM cards will run 4G LTE. But, we are not sure whether both the SIMs will run on 4G simultaneously, we will have to check it out.

Q. What is the SAR value of the device?

A. While the SAR value is available in the OnePlus website, for India, the SAR value is 0.729 W/kg for the head and 0.329 W/kg for the body which is well within the allowed numbers.

Q. What about the availability of the device as well as its covers?

A. The OnePlus 2 is going to be available in the US, the European Union as well as the Indian region starting from 11th August. In order to obtain the device, you will have to receive an invite first. The Indian sale will go live on, and India specific invites can be availed from Amazon’s website.

You will also be able to purchase changeable back covers at the time of sale. So, you can pick up a back cover of your choice.

Q. Does the OnePlus 2 support USB OTG?

A. The OnePlus 2 should support USB OTG, but since we do not have USB Type C OTG cable, we have ordered one and will be able to answer this question shortly.

Q. Is it worthy to upgrade from OnePlus One to OnePlus 2?

A. From a hardware perspective, the OnePlus Two seems like a worthy upgrade from the OnePlus One. The pricing is slightly higher than what we expected it to be. Also, you can skip the OnePlus 2 and wait for the next version or buy it later in the year, if they offer the device with some discount deals. If you bought the OnePlus One recently, you could stick to that as it will continue to receive updates.

Q. Is the fingerprint scanner better than GS6 and iPhone? Is it a deal breaker or maker?

A. We have been testing out the fingerprint scanner, and it works really well. It is fast and responsive to your fingerprint, and you can register five different fingerprints for unlocking the device and securing your OnePlus 2. It works as well as the S6 or the M9+. It is almost identical to those.

We feel the one on the iPhone 6 works slightly better because it reads the finger much faster than the one on the OnePlus 2. But we will be testing it out with a proper review of the OnePlus 2.

Q. Earphones in the box?

A. The box that we got is probably what the retail box will look like. And we did not receive any earphones. So, you will have to buy the earphones separately if you don’t have a pair of earphones already.

The OnePlus 2 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.

It is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core 64-bit processor with 4GB of RAM. The processor is capable of 4K streaming. 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.

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 had promised. However, we’d advise you to wait for our review.

  • Subhash Chandra Mandavilli

    I use NFC tags. I have one at my work, tapping on it will set up my phone to vibration, priority notification and sends a msg that I reached work place. Another at home, tapping on which switches off my data and on my WiFi , all notifications mode, full volume ring and media, switches on my Bluetooth and connect to the stereo. This is my NFC use.
