OnePlus 2 Specs
The OnePlus 1 was a great phone with top of the line specs at a great price compared to flagships from Apple and Samsung. It was touted by OnePlus to be the flagship killer. The problem was with the invite system rolled out allowing customers to buy the phone. While it did help keep the buzz going thanks to pent up demand, by the time the Plus 1 was available for non-invite purchase more improved phones had come out on the market. The OnePlus 2 is here, and there has been a lot of #hype about it. The invite system is back, but OnePlus claims they are ready to handle the demand. Time will tell, but the phone specs are out now and they are fairly impressive, especially given the relatively low cost point. Though we're still in 2015, the company is touting the OnePlus 2 as the "2016 Flagship Killer."

Here are six videos from some of the best phone reviewers breaking down the One Plus 2 in greater detail.

As you can see here the design is a bit different from the OnePlus One. In hand, the device has a great feeling and solid build all around compared to the One Plus One. The build is much better.

The metal frame adds a little bit of heft, and just makes it feel a little bit better - you're not gripping on the plastic

This button on the left spine is called the alert slider, so you can just slide this up, down, or to the middle to adjust your notification settings

We are gonna have a dual sim, the first time we've really seen dual Sim make its way to the USA. There's going to be dual standby, so essentially you can pop in two sims and receive phone calls from two separate numbers.

When we heard that the OnePlus 2 would have a fingerprint reader, there were some speculations about where it might be. Some thought it might be on the back of the phone. Some phones have it on the side, but like the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6, the OnePlus 2 also puts it in the middle right on the home button. Which I think is the most convenient place to put it.

The only thing a little disappointing about this camera right now is that software doesn't even live up to the competition. There is no manual controls or Raw support.
