came out of nowhere into the limelight last year with its first smartphone. The OnePlus One
was popularly called the flagship killer as it offered specifications seen in flagship smartphones of brands like Samsung and HTC but was sold for half their price. The model worked extremely well for the company as it sold 250,000 units of the OnePlus One in India
in slightly more than seven months and 1.5 million units globally in about a year
With the OnePlus 2
, the Chinese startup is extremely bullish about doing even better and is already bragging it as the flagship killer of 2016
. In essence, it is claiming that the OnePlus 2 would be better than the successor of the Galaxy S6
that Samsung is expected to launch next year. To find out whether the claims are valid or just a marketing gimmick, I put the OnePlus 2 through its paces for almost two weeks by using it as my primary smartphone.
