OnePlus 2 VR launch


The OnePlus 2 comes with the SnapDragon 810 v2 SOC, finger print sensor and laser rangefinder.  It charges with a USB type C charging port.  The rest of the phone is nearly identical to its older brother OnePlus One.

After viewing the specifications, I felt really let down.  I have pay the full price of a OnePlus One and an additional US$50.  In return I get a phone with a 64-bit CPU without NFC.  Not really a game changer.  The rising US dollar, after conversion, the OnePlus 2  got really costly, nearly comparable to resale units of Samsung S5.

On the other hand, the LG V10 has everything, with a 615 SOC, SD card and removable batteries.  Just when I thought removable batteries went extinct when capacity hit 3000mAh/hr.  There were some reports of the 615 SOC performing poorer than the 801 SOC.  So I guess I have wait it out till 2016.
