OnePlus 2 - The Good and the Bad

Let's face it OnePlus has had the most controversial business models two years running. The utilization of the invite system seems to have worked well for them, in the same sense I think it's hindering they're potential to become the company that produces the real "Flagship Killer."

The Good -

  • Build quality, is one of the top pluses of the OnePlus 2 in my book. This phone is beautifully constructed and features a modular design - scoring a respectable 7 out of 10 on the iFixit repairability scale.
  • Oxygen OS - one of the most pleasant experience of an Android variation I've had in a long time.
  • Battery life! This thing gets me through a day no problem.

The Bad -

  • The display isn't as sharp as I would have liked to see it, but I think it is a major contributing factor to the excellent battery life. In the end, I choose battery over display.
  • USB Type-C, this isn't a huge negative, it'll just take time to get other manufactures onboard with adopting this as a means of charging, the new Nexus 5X and 6P feature this port and I think it will get the ball rolling.
  • NO NFC! What the hell OnePlus?! In a time when mobile payments are about to take off, you decide to not include? This is the only reason I cannot use this phone as my daily driver.
  • The damn invite system! 'Nuff said.
