The Best: 4GB of RAM
The OnePlus 2 is not the first smartphone to come with 4GB of RAM, but the most affordable smartphone with 4GB of RAM along with the Snapdragon 810 Chipset. The smartphone runs on the company's lightweight operating system called OxygenOS, ensuring the best and faster user experience.
The Best: Fingerprint Sensor
At present almost every flagship are featuring the fingerprint scanner. OnePlus has also came up with the fingerprint scanner to its flagship smartphone. The company placed the fingerprint sensor on the physical home button, which is just used for scanning and the button is not press-able.
The best part about the fingerprint sensor in the OnePlus 2 is that you just need to put your finger on the scanner and the smartphone will automatically detects your fingerprint allowing you to use the smartphone.
The Best: Laser Autofocus
In camera department, the smartphone bears a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13 megapixel rear camera featuring a 1.3-micron sensor, laser autofocus, dual-LED flash and OIS. The laser autofocus allows the smartphone camera to focus super fast using a laser beam.
The Best: USB Type-C
This was the first feature that the company confirmed before the launch of smartphone. The USB Type-C is an open standard, backward-compatible port which comes with significantly faster data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, and offers higher power output than traditional USB chargers.
The Best: Physical Alert Button
The OnePlus 2 comes with the physical mute switch similar to the Apple iPhone. The best part is that the OnePlus 2 mute switch works in three steps, giving better control over notifications and profiles.
The Worst: Non-Removable Battery
We have seen many Android smartphones in the market that features a non-removable battery. But with the non-removable battery on the smartphone, users will not have freedom to fix their own battery problem.
However, OnePlus 2 has increased the battery size slightly over the OnePlus One and comes with 3,300mAh battery.
The Worst: No SDcard Support
The smartphone comes in two internal storage variants one with 16GB and another with 64GB. But there is an absence of SDcard support for the smartphone. The expandable storage slots provide the option to expand the local storage for music, photos, and documents.
The Worst: No Fast Charging
The OnePlus 2 is packed with a non-removable 3,300mAh battery that means it will be juice up the device throughout the day. At the same time, charging the 3,300mAh battery can be a pain. Fast charging features helps to charge the battery to charge in about 80 minutes.
While, the OnePlus 2 could have included the fast charging feature to boost up the charging time.
The Worst: No NFC
OnePlus added the NFC in its previous flagship, OnePlus One smartphone. But the company has removed it in the current flagship OnePlus 2, saying consumers were not using it.
The Worst: OnePlus Invite System
The worst feature of all is the OnePlus 2 invite system. But, the invite system is getting really popular and the reservation list has already surpassed 1 million. This means over one million people are waiting for the device.
However, the new invite system does not remove the fact that it is still restricted and has exclusive invite system.
