The New Flagship Killer: OnePlus Two

oneplus two

Ever since OnePlus appeared on the stage, there’s a huge hype going around because of the exclusiveness of their phones, and also their good prices for good phones. What OnePlus has to face are the Samsung and iPhone fanatics (totally unrelated to the topic, but still worth mentioning) who claim their phones are much better even though they are double the money. Well, I don’t share their opinion and I strongly believe in the superiority of the OnePlus phones. Let me convince you why the OnePlus phones, or in this case why the OnePlus Two is one of the best phones on the market right now!


The Features

The OnePlus Two is the new flagship of OnePlus, taking the position of the original flagship phone OnePlus One. This phone comes geared up with some mighty features, such as the powerful Non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery (note it is much stronger than Samsung Galaxy S6’s battery). It uses a powerful Quad-core 1.56 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. What many people are excited for is the fingerprint scanner, an option I find really interesting, even though it is not a great ranking factor.
