Poll: will you buy the OnePlus 2?


oneplus 2 leaked

With only a few days left before the launch of the OnePlus 2 there are surely a few people out there who have decided if they will go for the next gen flagship killer. Are you going to be one of the next OP owners?

The OnePlus 2 will launch very soon, and although not officially announced there are a few details we already know about the phone, and from those details it is possible to decide if the OP2 will be your next phone or not (or maybe).

What we know for certain is the OnePlus 2 will be smaller than the current OPO, have a larger battery, we also know there will be a fingerprint scanner and that the processor is a Snapdragon 810 “hotplate” running at 1.8Ghz with 4GB RAM. It also looks as though the 13 mega-pixel main camera will have Phase Detection Auto Focus, and the phone will use the latest USB standard, USB Type C.

We might even know what the OnePlus 2 looks like if the most recent Tenaa leak is actually the real deal (I’m still not sure and feel OnePlus could be just trolling us with the ugly phone).

With those details at hand and with knowledge of what the OnePlus 2 might look like we are asking are you likely to be buying one? Answer below in the poll;

    Lets wait and see it hands-on, these Tenna designs are not very clear, I would like to buy it, but will have to see how revised SD810 will avoid overheating!

    810/808 hell no
    No microSSD hell no
    Higher price hell no
    Home button and/or fingerprint, better without but not an absolute deal breaker.
    Remains to be seen how many of those reasons will stand after launch, they could have microSD this time around and pricing could be flat.

      I agree with everything you said except the home button. Personally I like them on phones, especially phones with a fingerprint scanner.

        There are 3 issues here:
        1. Home buttons force a sizable lower bezel.
        2. Biometrics make online more secure (best case scenario) and offline a lot less secure. Hard to put it in just a few words but lets try. It’s easy to steal fingerprints even more so now when ultrasound sensors can be hidden in every day objects for targeted or mass harvesting. You can also just use cams to harvest and fool current sensors. In the offline world it’s easier to force someone to give up the password- the aggressor could be a criminal or an abusive gov agency. Once compromised you can’t change your password (fingerprint). It makes it easier for folks like the NSA (or Putin or N Korea) to accurately track ppl. We’ll get better sensors , tools to steal/harvest the “password” and fool readers will get better too and in the end it ends when all our body parts readings have been compromised and humanity has to give up on the technology, But in the mean time we make it easier for criminals and abusive govs to do their thing.
        3.We all use our phone in both one hand mode and 2 hand mode. In each mode we hold the phone slightly different. The devices got too big for buttons at the bottom of the screen (bellow it being much worse) in 1 handed mode. We should move on and address that issue with hardware and software solution.

        Edit: I imagine that for women with long fingernails a front fingerprint sensor is uncomfortable while on the back it’s a lot easier but i’m a dude so no long nails to test that.

          The first and last one is personal preference. Everyone holds their phones differently and has different views on how bezels should or shouldn’t look. The second one is some tin foil hat stuff straight out of the movies.

          • realjjj
            July 24, 2015

            no and no.
            Everybody holds the phone the same way you just don’t understand what i was saying. Bezel size is a mater of ergonomics, size of the device vs usable area, all that is not display is bulk.
            The second one is exactly what is going on ,it’s early but everybody needs to do it’s job,including the bad guys.

              Whatever you say. Doesn’t change that i love a home button…..

        • Eric Toujas
          July 27, 2015

          i completely agree. Home button is doomed to disappear with the biometrics sensor. Thats a good thing really.Maybe a backbutton like on the LG would still be practical for pictures/unlocking. A fully bezelless phone is not possible today as we still need min 0,5cm for sensors and frontcamera, but improvement should be made a lot faster. After Mate 7, nothing much happened. And it was almost 1 year ago.

    If it was released around the time of galaxy s6 probably would buy. If I had the cash of course! But there has been a lot of similar phones released since with near similar specs. Plus the chip does not inspire great confidence. You don’t want to spend your hard earned cash on a item that could have trouble ahead.

  4. July 23, 2015

    If it is under USD 350 maybe 😀

    I bought my OnePlus One a little less than one year ago and the performance is still great. I don’t think I will buy any phone so soon. Nevertheless, if i was in the market to buy a new phone I’d skip OnePlus Two because there’s a lot of things that i don’t like in the spec sheet, mainly the price.

    • MexiDroid

      I think the same, even of there is a Better camera i will not buy it

    • Jim Shortz

      So u dont like the price even though they haven’t officially announced the price. Hmmm…interesting..

      • balcobomber25
        July 25, 2015

        They haven’t officially announced it but they have publicly said it will cost more than $330. It’s fully justified for him to hate paying more money for a worse phone.

        • Jim Shortz

        Hell no i would never buy a phone 70mm or wider can’t stand all these 5.5″ + pieces of crap being released

    SD 810 and hideous design, not a chance in hell. I thought the last One Plus phone was hideous looking but at least that one was a great value. This time not so much, there is very little to save that hideous design.

    • July 25, 2015

      It’s going to be a modified Find 9… so of course it will look like a Find 9… Just extra shelf space for Oppo.

      • balcobomber25
        July 25, 2015

        It always makes me laugh when OPO fanboys actually believe that OPO is not just a sub brand of OPPO.

    waiting for 820 snapdragon at the year end by oneplus. Oneplus have said they will launch two phones this year

    • balcobomber25
      July 24, 2015

      I wouldn’t count on them releasing an 820 version it wouldn’t make sense, if they were going to use an 820 they would just delay the 810 version. The second pone is going to be a budget/midrange device to take on the Lenovo K3, Xiaomi Mi4i and Meizu M2. It will have the 620 or something similar.

    nice piece, but due to Snapdragon 810 , hell no, forget about

  10. Angry Mobile Nerd
    July 23, 2015

    Again the SD810 LG G Flex2 is now down to $325 USD, if I really wanted a SD810 phone I think I’d just opt for that.

    1+1 was a killer flagship, 1+2 comes with hotspot literally SD810, why should i buy it?

  13. Kubis

    Lets see what it brings on Monday.
    So far we know its hardly going to be 2015 Flag ship killer, not 2016 as 1+ claims.

    What I don´t like to be true on leaked specs:

    – 13 mpx camera with no OIS? not bad for middle class, fail for Flag ship, hopping for 16mpx
    – fingerprint on button? solution for 199USD phones now.
    – design looks very bad if this leaked photos are true.
    – SD 810 – well, nothing to be proud of but I can live with that if really worked on overheating
    – no micro SD – if basic came with 32GB I can live with that.
    – IPS QHD display, I would prefer AMOLED with Full HD

    • balcobomber25
      July 24, 2015

      I agree with everything except the camera part.

      Would 16mp make it a better camera than 13mp? More companies need to do what Meizu did this year (and what Apple does every year). Instead of using a new sensor year after year they used the same one as the MX4, only this time they reworked all the algorithms for it. They also gave it a 6P lens and laser focus. One of the best camera phones available is the iPhone 6 with an 8mp sensor. Instead of getting involved in the MP race, Apple worked on the optics and software.

      • Kubis
        July 24, 2015

        Agree on that MP race, but at least OIS is a MUST if they want to call it Flag ship. Apple have own sensors so its a different play. Sony 13mpx sensors are common in phones for 200 USD and some good shooters can be find there. But the difference in Top Phones is a low light shooting ability and without OIS its not going to be much better without tripod. No way to compete to LG G4 or S6 in low light. I was hoping at least for Samsung sensor they have used in S6.

        • balcobomber25
          July 24, 2015

          S6 is not good in low light. My wife has one, in the daylight the photos are excellent but the slightest shadow can cripple that camera. The difference in top phones can be a number of things, OIS certainly helps but there are others that can set the top cameras apart from the $200 set ups. Such as laser focus, dual LED flash, better software, physical camera buttons, 6 p and blue sapphire lens, etc.

      • Dante
        July 24, 2015

        Apple used the 8 mp sensor from the iphone 5 and optimized and modified the optics

        • balcobomber25
          July 24, 2015

          Yes they did and it is excellent.

  14. Cpaun
    July 24, 2015

    I won’t buy a phone for an year or so, but I could hypothetically consider OP2 if it’s a good upgrade over OPO (camera and sound quality, better screen, finger print, etc).

  15. SPLEND1D

    oneplus great phone with no problem at all…

  19. July 25, 2015

    The conversation about this keeps rehashing specific mid-range features that fall short.

    It’s no secret, despite OnePlus’ wishful thinking, the device hardware isn’t top shelf and it’s matched by a dozen phones that come from both bigger and smaller companies. Take your pick for your favorite underdog.

    Their real problem is that they no longer have Cyanogen. Nor do they have enough credibility with delivery of their own port of Android.

    Some of their statements just show how out of touch they’ve become. They’re a 2016 flagship killer because they have SOME of the features of Android M in their next (and as yet unreleased or seen) version of their OS. Probably just fingerprint scanner support and little else, but even if it’s more, they ignore the fact that Android M will ship in about 2 months at the Google I/O conference! That’s solidly in 2015, and it would be foolish to believe that the Note 5 and other major flagships won’t be running M this year.

    There’s nothing to differentiate them like the first time, and they’ve pissed off a lot of people with their marketing practices.

    So “HELL NO!” for me. no need to hide behind an anonymous poll.

    No am not buying it! My oneplus one have sh1te battery life after updating to cm12. Yes i know that there is that googleservices bug however even Cyanogen does not care about it anymore. Therefore i will sell my device in near future and move on. #NEVERSETTLE OR another way to put it is Be happy but never be satisfied!

  23. RH
    July 27, 2015

    Nope, there are just as good devices, for the same or cheaper price now. OnePlus does NOT have the cheap/good spec market to themselves now.
