OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4: specs comparison

1

The OnePlus 2 is here and it really is something, judging from the specs sheet, feature list, and most importantly, the price tag that it flaunts. Certainly, it is not the perfect phone (none is), but the OnePlus 2 is definitely a noteworthy Android offering. Well, it might initially be quite hard to lay your hands on one, but it is certain that it will amass a great deal of followers.

How does it stack up against its predecessor, the OnePlus One, though? Of course, the OnePlus One is an evolutionary step forward, but it has also shed a number of nice features that had previously made the rounds on the OnePlus, like NFC, for example. We decided to put the specs sheets of the two OnePlus offerings and nitpick at the improvements and differences between the two.

Since our specs comparisons usually require us to put three devices against each other, we decided to see how the Galaxy Note 4 fares against the new and the old OnePlus devices.
