OnePlus 2 Review: Bounty Hunter

By 06:43 Mon, 16 Aug 2021 Comments


So, another flagship killer means a) the original left some unfinished business or b) OnePlus ran out of smart taglines. It would've made small sense to OnePlus to revise the job description but, while the OnePlus 2 is clearly superior it lacks one thing the original had, the benefit of surprise.

It's what got OnePlus into the flagship club and it seems the Chinese are now playing by the club's rules rather than trying to break them. Fair enough, we know they're fine at the latter. Time to see them in their recent role.

To start with, the OnePlus 2 is clearly more sophisticated. Still a gigantic handset but looking better than its predecessor. It uses some of the best tech currently available and the latest Android OS, while the breakup with CyanoGen is another sign of the company's emancipation. Not a decision that will acquire everyone's approval but perhaps OnePlus are confident enough to pursue their own brand of skinning Android.

OnePlus started as a rebel company with the single goal of stirring up the flagship segment. The OnePlus One was not just a premium phone at an affordable price - it was fine at creating hype and pretty much managed to justify it. The "Never Settle" startup is now a househrecent name, quite an accomplishment in a single generation. Things have been set up nicely for the arrival of the OnePlus 2 but it's got plenty to live up to.
