If you’ve been eyeing up a OnePlus phone, there’s now another place you can order one in the UK. The company is selling the OnePlus 2 on Amazon UK for the same recently reduced price found on its own website of £249. The move should improve the sales of both OnePlus 2 and the smaller OnePlux X handsets, due to the added exposure and consumer trust associated with Amazon. It could also be a useful way to sell off old stock ahead of the speculated OnePlus Three launch.
We shouldn’t expect the next flagship device from OnePlus to show up on Amazon any time soon, however. The company’s last three phones were sold using a controversial invite system for awhile, which Amazon cannot support.
It’s probably for definite that the OnePlus Three will be sold in a similar fashion, meaning the phone will at least be an exclusive on their own online store. Though it’s been announced that for the first time, the OnePlus 3 will not use an invite system at launch.
Should you buy the OnePlus 2?
The OnePlus 2 had mixed reviews at launch, for missing key features such as NFC, which is used for contactless payments. Some also didn’t like the new standard USB type C, which is now more popular, and even in devices such as the Nexus 6P. Without a doubt, the rest of the specs are really great for a device less than £300, the only concern is that it uses OxygenOS, a fork of Android, which may halt potential customers from throwing their money at the device.
If you are after a solid device that runs a version of Android that is near stock, with some great specifications, it may be the device for you. Even better, it is now even easier to purchase.
