OnePlus 2 Review ~ Does OnePlus 2 Justify its Hype?

OnePlus 2 is the most Hyped Smartphone of 2015 that’s why it does not need any Introduction in this world. The Hyped made OnePlus 2 among-st the most popular Smartphone around the Globe that because of it has achieved 3 Million registration around the Globe. We are here to tell you does OnePlus 2 justify its Hype created among its fans!

In the box pack: you’ll find OnePlus 2 handset, user guide, quick start guide, USB Type –C data cable and travel charger 5V ~ 2A while earphone is missing.

Overall Design

OnePlus 2 build quality is very good especially its sandstone back cover as it gives you additional grip on the handset, the handset looks premium. The chassis are made of polycarbonate, while a magnesium and aluminum band runs around its sides, with drilled vents for the speaker and a USB Type-C charging port along the bottom. OnePlus 2 weight with built-in battery is 175 grams and dimensions are 74.88 x 151.12 x 9.87 (mm). It support two nano SIM slots and both these slots support 4G LTE you can insert the sim via tray at the back side.

Display and Multimedia

There is not much to talk about OnePlus 2 Display as it flaunt a 5.5inch Display with Full HD Display same as OnePlus One, The display on the OnePlus 2 gives the same pixel density as its predecessor, but it is comparatively brighter. Thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, the display is protected from scratches.


 OnePlus 2 is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 810 SoC which has a quad-core Cortex A57 and a quad-core Cortex A53 and has the Adreno 430 GPU. This is paired with 4GB of RAM for the 64GB storage variant. Like its predecessor, it also doesn’t include microSD card slot to expand storage

Although NFC is missing from OnePlus 2 which bothered me a lot as I couldn’t test it with the NFC Speaker for its true Sound Quality but then OnePlus 2 will be the first phone to be selling with that USB Type-C connector in India which makes it ahead from its competitors. 


OnePlus 2 features a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor sits behind an f/2.0 lens and larger 1.3-micron pixel size which makes it perfect for outdoor shoots and its doesn’t disappoint us at all. Additionally you get optical image stabilizer (OIS) to keep the photo still no matter how shaky the things can be.

 In OnePlus 2 the Auto Mode has impressed me a lot it adjust with the lights and brings out the most sharper and vibrant images. The HDR mode is not so impressive at all it doesn’t make any difference in the images.

If we talk about the laser Auto Focus which is fast but not so fast enough but still good enough to take still like you DSLR Camera take it. The Dual flash is powerful enough in dark.  Thanks to the OxygenOS skin atop the Android 5.1 OS, you get a very basic camera interface so you won’t be messing with setting accidentally.


The OnePlus 2 is equipped with Snapdragon 810 v2 processor so does it can play everything you throw infront of it. If we talked about its heating issue which is the main concerned for many users, so it does not heat at all in moderate use 10-30min even in heavy use you feel OnePlus 2 on warmer side but it does not get ridiculously hot.

    The video & Sound quality is good overall the experience with OnePlus 2 is incredibly good! As per the software the OnePlus 2 comes with the Android 5.1 OS with OnePlus own Oxygen OS 2.0 on it which is heavily inspired by Cyanogen OS but doesn’t comes near to CM 12 OS but it does come with new design touch feature which make it ahead like swiping to left most home screen takes you to a feature called Shelf. You can use gestures to launch the camera (make an O on the lock screen), turn on the torch light (make a V on the lock screen) and so on.

Unfortunately though, the OnePlus 2 does not support fast charging with the included cable – or any other cable for that matter – or wireless charging but still USB Type-C is quite fast enough.

Other features

  • Fingered print Scanner – The finger scanner is easy to setup as Feeding your fingerprint takes half a minute as the scanner is scanning your finger multiple times does it required that you tap it several time until the bar is completed. The scanner is quick when it comes to unlocking the phone and works fine on most instances but not with the wet hands.
  • Battery – OnePlus 2 comes with a sealed 3,300mAh Li-Polymer battery pack.  On average, I've been able to get through a full 12-hour workday (with lots of Music on Bluetooth speaker and YouTube videos, plus the occasional game and work email) with 15 or 20 percent left in the tank. While for moderate users battery would last for a day.

Final Verdicts

Yes OnePlus have all the necessary credibility to be called a Flagship killer device whether you talk about its good looks, camera quality, performance but does it justify its Hyped, I don’t think so as still much space left in it to be filled by OnePlus to be called worthy among-st other big name like Sony, Apple, and Samsung etc. It won’t disappoint you with its performance on the other hand it will fill you with the joy, you can buy this happiness for Rs 25,000 ($378) with 64GB while other variants are expected to come in at a later date.
