OnePlus 2 Review: Bounty Hunter: Performance

By 06:49 Mon, 16 Aug 2021 Comments


Performance

OnePlus 2 runs on the latest available Snapdragon 810 chip, which might be among the most powerful beasts on the market, but still resounds rather negative thoughts due to the numerous overheating reports.

Unlike other Snapdragon 810-powered devices though, the OnePlus 2 comes with a down-clocked processor, which should assist it achieve a lower thermal signature where throttling happens more rarely.


So, the OnePlus 2 has an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A57 cores at 1.8 Giga Hertz (GHz) and four Cortex-A53 running at 1.56 GHz. There is 3GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) for the 16GB model and 4GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) on the 64GB flavor (as is ours). The GPU, which handles the graphics department is the powerful Adreno 430.

GeekBench 3 gauges the multi-core processor performance and the OnePlus 2 does excellent. While its Central Processing Units (CPU) clock is lower than the rest of the Snapdragon 810 gang - it performs better and is outrun only by Samsung's latest Exynos 7420.

The BaseMark Operating System (OS) II 2.0 is a more comprehensive test, which measures both the synthetic and real-life performance. It takes in consideration raw Central Processing Units (CPU) and GPU power, memory, overall system performance, and web scores, among others. Here the OnePlus 2 does as fine as Galaxy S6 and is a hair below the top of the chart.

Summing it all up, it's obvious that the OnePlus 2 isn't going to murder any 2015 flagships, let alone any of the flagships to come out in 2016. Sure, performance-wise, it's on par with most of the available top-tier devices and even has an edge due to its lower resolution classy screen and powerful graphics. But is it quick enough?

Yes. The OnePlus 2 packs enough power to handle everything hassle-free for quite a long time. Its processor is quick and 64-bit, the GPU is from the current generation and supports Open GL ES 1.x, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, TS & GS; Open CL 1.2 and Direct X 11.2.

Long tale short, the OnePlus 2 is quick and future proof. But does it overheat?

No, OnePlus 2 does not suffer from overheating problems and performance stuttering. It heats up quite a lot around its top, but apparently down-clocking the Central Processing Units (CPU) did the trick and you don't have to worry it will overheat and throttle down the performance. It still becomes hot in everyday use, even with mundane tasks such as updating Play Store apps, so have that in mind if you are bothered by such things. Still, unless you're holding the phone in landscape you usually don't notice it even if that happens.
