OnePlus Defends OnePlus 2 and for Making People ‘Settle’

Browse This Page

It is a known fact that the OnePlus 2 doesn’t include the NFC, however users and potential customers have been unhappy about this. Therefore, today on a Reddit – Ask Me Anything, four employees of the company fielded questions on everything, such as the voice-over-LTE, the lack of NFC and other such matters. For those who aren’t aware of the term, NFC or Near Field Communication is a short range wireless RFID technology, that can be used for touch-based payments or wireless charging.

Apart from this, OnePlus has been faced with some very serious questions about their taglines and not being able to match up to them. For example, their tagline that says “innovations from the future,” or “Never Settle” and claiming to follow a philosophy that essentially warrants them to create a device without gimmicks, bloatware or compromises; have all been under the radar recently.

A Redditor asked that “with such a powerful mantra like that, wouldn’t it be ironic to settle without quick-charging or wireless charging if I choose your phone?” Here is what OnePlus said:

We’ve always said that never settle is true for us too. That means, if you’re not happy with the product you shouldn’t settle for ours either. With the OnePlus 2, we made the set of choices that we think delivers the best user experience, but because users are not the same they won’t all feel the same. That’s fine – we’ll work hard to make each iteration better than the last.

Adding to this, an employee also mentioned the power of the new Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology, as being able to charge a phone from 0% to 100% in approximately 2 hours. Despite this, there have been comparisons with the Nexus 6, that is said to charge enough for the entire day in just one hour. Another aspect that has been criticized, is the inability of the OnePlus 2 to take advantage of the NFC-based Android Pay.

Last but not the least, OnePlus was asked about a recent interview given by Carl Pei at USA Today, speaking about the release of a third device; to which an employee confirmed that there will most definitely be another OnePlus smartphone, however it won’t be called the OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 2S.

Do you think OnePlus has responded adequately to the queries of its users?

If NFC is not the future then Google, Apple & Samsung are dum to bring mobile pay through NFC Technology. Even Apple never though they will ever make such a big phone like iPhone 6+ but they had to do it because big phones became a trend. In my point of view NFC has got potentials of doing more than just charging phone and e-payment. Many other companies in USA have already started building some great stuff with NFC: Like a Big NFC table charger that can power a NFC enable wireless food processor, Microwave Owen and many more, even huge NFC emitter that can charge any phone around it with the Help of a back cover on phone which is link through your phone USB. I have seen it on Youtube Android Authority channel at las vegas tech mela this year. in One word NFC is Awesomely Futuristic.

I dont think that is much of a problem to me..they should have given that considering the fact that people always expect more from one plus.. But keeping in mind its price segment,the hardware it is providing is much more than others out there..So,I believe it doesn't really matters..

Do you believe this is a serious problem n consider other options like mizue mx5 or Honor 7

I dont think so..bec fast charge means you need to have a dedicated power management chip that'll eat up power fast and distribute it to battery in a way that its charge cycles are normally distributed

In the entire story you have mentioned about NFC only. Why don't you see positives too? They gave smart profile key switch...Fingerprint sensor faster than touch id...man you don't even have to awake the screen ...i personally like it.....4gb lpddr4 ram!! just there are lot of positive things. Seriously we never gonna use NFC in the near future as predicted by recent past. Fast charging though an issue, from price point its okay i guess.. Just those guys are awsome. NeVeR SeTtLe suits to them.

NFC is a set of protocol for wireless communication just like Bluetooth. It has nothing to do with wireless charging.

"For those who aren’t aware of the term, NFC is a software that is used for touch-based payments or wireless charging." Looks like you don't know anything about NFC. 1. NFC is not a software. 2. NFC is not at all related to wireless charging in any way.
