I m really in a need of a good phone and I really cannot find any phone better than this. I want it desperately as soon as possible.
TruthSeekr, 03 Aug 2015As a OnePlus One owner, I do not see any reason to upgrade to the OP2:
The fingerprint ... moreI have the complete and opposite onion from you.
1. I use the fingerprint scanner on my S6 for primary unlock. It's as fast or faster than screen swipe yet secure.
2. I started using NFC with my old Nexus 4, and there it died. Haven't used it in 2 years. Found it more trouble than worth it.
3. OPO camera was lacking. Photos weren't good and slow focus time. OIS will only improve. Camera is very important when having a toddler around.
4. This will directly depends on the user.
5. I'm sure it comes with a sync cable. You can also get sync cables on Amazon to plus into USB chargers. This seems like a strange con.
6. The biggest letdown for me was no VoLTE and no wireless charging.
As a OnePlus One owner, I do not see any reason to upgrade to the OP2:
The fingerprint sensor is really more a novelty than serious feature for Android at the moment (in contrast, ApplePay is supported by major UK banks - HSBC, Natwest etc, also Transport for London and several cafe/restaurant chains)
Lack of NFC is strange, and the "nobody was using it" excuse is even stranger for a company whose motto is "Never Settle"
I use NFC on a daily basis (I have a tag at my desk at work and use it to set my phone to "work mode" when I get in every morning) and lack of NFC is a deal breaker for me
Camera is probably nice, but my OPO already has a brilliant camera, and don't see this as a major upgrade.
According to Engadget, battery life is shorter than the OPO, so that's a downer
USB-C ports will be a nice thing to have in a few years after everyone else has it, but right now it's a major disadvantage to use a brand new interface:
I have one charger at home, one at work and one in my car - How? because I have old chargers from other phones/cameras/etc. and they all charge my current phone.
With USB-C, I'll be limited to the ONE CHARGER that comes with my phone, or need to buy two new ones.
The swappable back panels is the only real advantage for me - but given the rest of the drawbacks, I'll skip this upgrade.
Even the company calls it Flagship Killer the smartphone comes with its ups and down.
For the first the Snapdragon 810 which is in demand but known for heating.
Second thing the reviewer mentioned it lacks wireless charging feature. Even the fast charging port is also not supported.
The flash sale which is the worst ever tradition initially started by Xiaomi.
No 32GB variant. 64GB might be pretty expensive.
Non-removable battery might cost you more than just little in case of damage.
A soft reboot button in place of sound profile switch would be better.
Lack of official service support (centers) in India.!!
shane fernandes, 02 Aug 2015I think you need to get your facts right before you start comparing brands....810+13MP+1080p+30fps is only Adequate, and 810's well known for the heat...
I'm using sam note 4 currently, I will change to note 5 if it has sd and removeable battery, or LG G4 pro rumor 820+4G RAM+32G+24MP+4K+4k 60fps...
Though it is hard for fan-boys to accept, but oneplus has a very long way to go.
Aside for the rear end hurt trolls and fanboys of other brands, this phone is looking good in every area except for battery life. Some reviewers report less than Oneplus One levels of battery life. That is a deal breaker for anyone for sure if proven to be the case in gsm's controlled tests here.
The back of this phone (dull grey) has always been something that hasn't appealed to me but besides that it does seem like a very good handheld for the price quoted.
On another note, this new look of the site is something I can't seem to get used to. The old look was better, you could see more on the screen. I keep thinking there's less information with the new look.
Maybe a good price, but I rather pay a bit more for more reliable phones from better brands with better specs, quality and customer service.
and NOT a fan of marketing tricks like xiao mi, oneplus... Built better products first pls.
ditech, 31 Jul 2015Nexus 5 is my latest hope. They ruined everything with this phone. I've contacted Google and g... moreI bet Google just loved that a person who isnt a designer calling them up.
And telling people who have studied and been in the business of building phones what it should look like and what should be in it.
The Nexus line is and was never about the greatest of anything it jus a tool to show off the OS plain and simple thats it. Its not about it looking nice and selling great numbers although i know everyone home it looks great. The best hope this year is that they keep it a little smaller
The price tag of one plus two is very good but am more concerned with their invite system. Skips one plus two for now until they confront their marketing gimmicks as ridiculous
