Now, we can't say we're thrilled with the omission of the microSD card slot, but that's a topic for another time and place. Meanwhile, here's the gist on the "new" in the new OnePlus 2!

Can we stop calling the AF lamp "Laser autofocus", such a marketing gimmicky name to rebrand a LED lamp with a colored plastic cap.

They decided to go with a fingerprint sensor instead of an iris scanner? I am looking forward to the iris scanner which is more secure than fingerprint sensors because your fingerprint can be lifted off your device and reproduced, whereas your iris cannot.

Although you are right that it is possible, it is so unlikely that it's not even worth worrying about. And the technology and expertise required to do that isn't exactly common and easy to come by. That aside, does an iris scanner need ample light to function?

Laser Autofocus = LG Fingerprint Scanner = Samsung SD810 = HTC/Sony (is this another oven though?) StyleSwap = Motorola (only it is removable)

It's got USB Type-C, but does it support USB 3.1?

+ OnePlus 2 is a USB2.0 device, not USB 3.1 + No NFC + No Quick Charge + No wireless charging + Full charge takes 3 hours and 20 minutes. NEVER SETTLE

You're fussing over wireless charging as if you'll actually use it. I understand it should have been included but it's the biggest gimmick out there, nothing more than another feature to tack on to the list. The quick charching however would have been useful. I'll personally be waiting for battery stats before moving forward with this phone

Oneplus doesn't have the luxury of having carriers to sell their phones, so the price you see is the price you pay - no carrier subsidies, no ATT Next or Verizon Edge to soften the blow of paying full price up front. Which means that if they stuffed every possible high-end premium feature into the phone, they'd be running the risk that no one could afford it.

It feels like they built the phone towards a price instead of the other way around.
