OnePlus 2 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of OnePlus 2 at a Glance:-

The OnePlus 2 popularly called the flagship killer as it offered specifications seen in flagship smartphones of brands like Samsung and HTC in Half price. This smartphone is loaded with features like 5.5 inches display, 13 MP camera, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 4G, Snapdragon 810 Quad-core processor and 3300 mAh battery. 
The back has rough textured plastic, which looks like stone than the slick plastic feels really solid and the sandstone back is super grippy, Feels great to hold in hand.
Display is less reflective and less prone to fingerprint smudges. The 401 pixel density with resolutions of 1080 x 1920 pixels is perfect for 5.5 inches. Screen is bright and crisp perhaps the brightest display. The viewing angles are also superb but still the colours look a little washed out.

Cameras is one of the greatest aspects of this phone; 13-MegaPixel rear camera has 6 physical lenses, a dual LED flash, Object Image Stabilization, and laser focus. But this time they switched to OmniVision sensor for quality photographs in indoor or outdoor, during day or night the result will be superb. Even the front facing 5 megapixel camera captures a wider angle than many other selfie cameras with satisfactory pictures.

The sound from speaker is not too loud but it’s clear without any distortion; with some branded headphone audio quality is nice. 
The wifi connectivity is average. Voice clarity and signal reception of phone is quite good. OnePlus 2 may be the only Android phone with a dedicated physical slide button on the side of the phone for changing profile and controlling notifications.
Though One plus says its Oxygen OS but looks more like an Oxygen UI. Its fast and bloatware free. The thing which is newly added is The Shelf meant to be an all-purpose place where you can quickly access stuff you use all the time, like frequently used contact information or frequently used apps. 
The 3,300mAh battery may look huge but it last about more than a day. The battery takes nearly two and half hours to charge completely. While Gaming in OP2 doesn’t drain much battery unlike other phones, its great news for heavy gamers. Phone gets hot if you do some extensive gaming though it is tolerable. For normal usage it doesn’t get heated up, but gets a little warm.
USB type C cables or adaptor is required if you need to charge it somewhere else or in your car.
