Unboxing the OnePlus 2

Let’s be honest and up front, I don’t really have high hopes for this phone. The release itself was meh, and the hardware choices are limited. They say “Never Settle” but there are so many compromises with the OnePlus 2. Let’s get this review started with the official unboxing ceremony and take a look at what $389 will get you from OnePlus. (Price recently reduced to $349).

I know I sound as though I’ve already written this phone off as a “non competitor” this year, I don’t mean to sound so critical, I mean I just unboxed it, barely used it, but it stands to reason that in order to compete, you need to bring it all to the table without compromise, especially if your tagline is “Never Settle”.
