OnePlus showed up on the scene last year with a “flagship killer”, the OnePlus One. For those that are unfamiliar with this device, it brought a Snapdragon 801 SoC, 5.5” 1080p display, and some generally impressive hardware at a 350USD price point for the 64GB variant. This made the OnePlus One a pretty incredible value, and to OnePlus’ credit the One remains one of the better choices in the midrange market due to its high-end specs. Today, OnePlus is launching the successor to their first device, which is called the OnePlus 2. To establish some of the basic specifications of this device I would refer to the spec table below. OnePlus One OnePlus 2 SoC Snapdragon 801 2.5 GHz Krait Snapdragon 810 1.8 GHz A57/A53 RAM 3GB LPDDR3 3/4GB LPDDR4-1555 NAND 16/64GB NAND 16/64GB...
