September 2014 - June 2017


While nearly everything was already known about the device prior to its unveiling, it’s still one of the better phones of 2015. As was expected, the OnePlus 2 features a 5.5-inch display at 1080p and a refreshed design. When it was announced, the bold Chinese company bragged that it was not a 2015 flagship, but rather a 2016 flagship. That didn’t pan out so well, with many customers preferring other flagships thanks to the OnePlus 2’s curious omission of NFC and other features.

On the front of the device is a fingerprint sensor, as well as a front-facing camera, while the back houses a OnePlus logo and a 13MP f/2.0 camera capable of shooting 4k video. The fingerprint sensor can support up to five different fingerprints, similar to Apple’s iPhone fingerprint. As far as specs go, the device is powered by an improved version of the Snapdragon 810 that solves all of the reported issues with overheating. The device also features 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 3,300Ah battery, as well as a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.
