16GB OnePlus 2 no longer on sale in the US and Europe
The 16GB version of the phone disappeared from the company's web store earlier this week, but it turns out that things will stay this way for good. A spokesperson has confirmed the decision for TechRadar, claiming that the 16GB version of OnePlus 2 was not nearly as popular as the 64GB model in these markets.
Given that OnePlus has made a name out of selling high-end smartphones at decent prices, this comes as a surprising move. Sure, 16GB of internal storage might not be enough space for some and the fact that the smartphone lacks a microSD card only makes the matter worse, but the decision to completely remove the 16GB version from the store seems a bit on the drastic side.
On the other hand, the extra 48GB of internal storage and the extra GB of RAM are well worth the $60 price bump. Another way to look at this is that OnePlus is helping customers make a better decision by removing alternatives.
