After fifteen months since the release of OnePlus One, a young company from the Middle Kingdom has decided to introduce the second generation phablet that is faster, more efficient, and also more technologically advanced. But is actually a "killer next year flagowców"?
Before going to the characteristics of OnePlus 2, it is worth mentioning that Carl Pei, founder of OnePlus during one of his last interviews reported that so far sold more than 1.5 million copies OnePlus One. This result is not stunning, and shows that the first generation did not have much chance of competition. Competition, which was often more expensive, but if there was a renowned and much appreciated. How will sell out this year's flagship? For this information we will have a long wait, but it is certain that the system of calls is still in force. The invitations, which for many was pretty much criticized and praised by others. According to earlier information OnePlus potrwierdzonymi reached for the most efficient system in the range of Qualcomm. In OnePlus 2 was used Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 – a unit equipped with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 with frequency of 2.0 GHz and four auxiliary cores ARM Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.5 GHz. For graphics performance while the chip is responsible Adreno 430. The difference between the new generation unit, and the older involves lowering the temperature and increase productivity. OnePlus 2 uses a 4-gigabyte RAM working memory LPDDR4 type, which is characterized by lower demand for power from the battery and a faster response time (bandwidth of 32 GB / s – 2x more than LPDDR3) and therefore applications, games, and widely understood multitasking greatly accelerate . OnePlus 2 is equipped with a 13-megapixel camera with a pixel size of 1.3 microns, and is therefore about 35% larger than that used in standard cameras in mobile devices. It was decided also to apply optical image stabilization (OIS) and a laser focus measurement, which reduces the time to catch the focus to 0.3s. And all this in the presence of a dual LEDs illuminate the LED. The camera is capable of recording video at 120 frames per second, as well as 4K. But this is not the main camera functionality, because, like the proposals from the Oppo allows you to take pictures at a resolution of 50 megapixels. And this is possible by performing a few photos and join them together. Video calls and Selfie was dedicated camera with a matrix of 5 megapixels. The picture is presented in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with a diagonal 5.5 "which features a contrast ratio of 1000: 1. OnePlus argues the lack of resolution WQHD, the lack of additional visual experience for the user. So here we approach the Japanese company Sony, which is also of the opinion that WQHD screens in smartphones are unnecessary. Used in OnePlus 2 fingerprint reader is reportedly very fast and is able to detect up to five fingerprints, and therefore does not matter which finger you want to unlock the device. Of course, there were also a USB port-C, which gives you the ability to insert the plug into the socket to any page, and offers faster data transmission. It should however be noted that the USB-C does not have backward compatibility, so there podłączycie older wires. The rear panel OnePlus 2 under which conceals a non-replaceable battery with a capacity of 3300 mAh is able to adapt according to your own preference, as will offer four overlay – Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood, and Kevlar. In addition, we learned that OnePlus 2 of the metal body has a dual SIM card slot 4G, contactless proximity technology (NFC), 16 GB / 64 GB built-in memory, and the slider on the side of the edge, allowing us to quickly switch between the three profiles. But OnePlus worked not only on components, as well as the latest software – OxygenOS, which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its mission is to offer liquidity measures at a much more elaborate functionality. OnePlus proposes to change the theme, expanded file manager, support for gestures on the display is off, easy access to the notifications panel, or change the icons for custom (almost all formats supported). There were also MaxxAudio technologies that guarantee has the best sound quality on your mobile device. OxygenOS directly from the front panel lets you enter the volume equalizer settings. And now the most important thing – price. Version with 16 GB of user memory was priced at $ 329, while a model offering 64 GB of memory associated with expense $ 389. Polish rates are as follows: 16GB – 1449 zł, 64GB – 1,699 zlotys. Sales will start eleventh OnePlus 2 August this year in the United States, Canada, India, China and the European Union. Initially I was going to finish this text rather coldly, without emotion, but you can not. I am very impressed with suggested prices on the Polish market. OnePlus once again showed a very powerful device that can easily compete with this year's flagship proposals. The company has proven that not only the components that count but also, and perhaps above all, the suggested retail price. OnePlus 2 has a great value for the implemented components and something I feel that no company will be able to offer as much for so little.
