OnePlus 2 Smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4GB RAM, and 64GB of Storage

The revolution of 5.5-inch smartphone continue with OnePlus 2 (A2001). Its another Chinese handset treated with 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of flash storage. And the only model I heard that employs a Lightning-based charger following the footsteps of Apple's blockbuster iPhone and iPad. It is also the first China-made phone to use LPDDR4 memory as noted on its user's manual.

Furthermore, OnePlus 2 is expensive compared to other octa-core powered smartphones with 5.5-inch screen and the same storage capacity or even to several 2-in-1 tablets. It is probably equipped with solid-state drive (SSD) rather than a flash eMMC storage. Or maybe, because of its Corning Gorilla Glass technology and support to 16K resolution.

For other specs of OnePlus 2, see the following table below:

Operating SystemAndroid 5.1 (Oxygen OS)

BatteryBuilt-in 3300mAh Lithium-Po
OthersDual-SIM, Built-in stereo speakers and microphone

The above specs shows that OnePlus 2 may have a common level of performance compared to the 6-inch ZTE Nubia Z11 Max in terms of CPU, RAM, and storage. But still, the price is much higher than the other Chinese handset.

In addition to this dual-SIM enabled device, it is also equipped with laser auto-focus technology just like of ZenFone lines from Asus.

There might be a cheaper version for OnePlus 2 but for now, I never heard of any variant with 32GB of storage. The price of the this 64GB model starts at about $350 and up. And the only shortcoming for this model, is no other than its 3300mAh battery. As a prospect user, you may think of additional 10000mAh or 20000mAh power bank to keep this handset running for a long.
