OnePlus has announced that after just 72 hours, over a million people have reserved a OnePlus Two. OnePlus uses a highly controversial invite system to sell it phones, Also it must be noted that a million OnePlus Twos haven’t been actually ordered; one million invites to buy it have been requested. Though, even with that many invites, there’s no telling just how many people will be able to get their hands on the second generation OnePlus device when it becomes available on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
The phone has also generated a lot of attention due to the tagline “2016 Flagship Killer” which many feel is too much hype for a product which is missing several key features such as NFC and Quick Charging. The unveiling of the Moto X Style and Moto X Play, which are also very reasonably priced, within a few hours of the OnePlus Two further fueled these debates.
Though, as OnePlus has said, the decision to omit the NFC chip resulted from users of the OnePlus One not actively using the chip.
We feel the cost of the OnePlus Two is a benefit for the user but the user experience could have been amplified if features such as NFC and Quick Charging were included. The device carries a $329 price tag for the 16 GB model and will come in at $389 for the 64 GB device. Of course we can’t make a determination about how good the OnePlus Two is until we have a review unit in hand.
