OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One: Pricing and Availability

The real draw for the OnePlus One was not necessarily its specs alone, but rather those specs for the price. The OnePlus 2 is slightly more expensive than the OnePlus One, however it is still an absolute steal compared to other Android devices on the market with such good specs. The flagship model, with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, is available starting on August 11 for $389 (£289, about AU$535). Another model will be available for $329 (£239, about AU$452), featuring 16GB of storage and 3GB of RAM at a later date.

Like the OnePlus One, however, the device is only available by invite. Those interested in getting an invitation can head to the OnePlus website for more information on how to get an invitation.

OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One: Verdict

The OnePlus 2 is certainly a worthy successor to the "flagship killer" that was the OnePlus One. While there are some drawbacks such as the thicker chassis and the same display, these are far outweighed by things like a better processor, battery, camera, and so on.

Those among us who use a lot of different apps, need a device that will last through the day without a problem, and who enjoy being able to whip out their phone to take quality photos should seriously think about at least trying to get a OnePlus 2.
