The OnePlus 2 is coming! Are you thinking of getting it? (poll results)
Four days from now, OnePlus is set to announce its second product in its still very short history: the OnePlus 2. From what we know so far, the thing won't be as cheap as its predecessor (the most basic model of which sold for just $299), and instead rock a price tag reading "under $450". For that amount of dough, rumors say, you'll be getting a 5.5-inch display with a Quad HD (1440 x 2560) pixel resolution, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor built on a 64-bit architecture, 4 gigs of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a hearty, 3,300 mAh juicer. Unlike the OnePlus One, its successor is also expected to feature a metal frame, lending it a more premium feel.

Despite the hike in price, the OnePlus 2, we think you'll agree, is still sounding rather promising all things considered. Sure, it's unlikely that any US carrier deals are in place, so full unlocked pricing might dissuade some, but it's still fair to say that the 2 is shaping up to be a very competitive smartphone. So when we asked you yesterday if you're thinking of getting a unit for yourself once it comes out, we were expecting that quite some people would be interested. We were kind of right, specifically if you consider OnePlus' status as a still fledgling company.

To start off, over a quarter of participants (27.94%) say they're absolutely getting the OnePlus 2, while 44.88% say they're undecided but considering it. The remaining 27.18% are not at all interested. Here's proof of the mentioned split:

Only thinking about it (undecided)
Nope. Naw. No.

With all the bad press that the SD810 is getting, why bother getting this? You can't magically overhaul a badly-engineered SoC overnight, you just can't!

After seeing that camera placement Im no longer interested. $249 for the Oneplus One (16gig) is still a damn good bargin.

1. No local warranty. Breaks down, contact company via email. Wait a week to get a reply and get it sorted. Send to China. Wait. And after some time get a new or your phone fixed. Conclusion? 3-5 weeks without a phone. 2. No need to go to no2. No1 is such a vital demand that with that in mind I am not touching any Chinese phone that doesn't have local service and warranty.

I shoulda kept my old oneplus one LOL, the same freaking design and the aspect ratio of the camera (not a 16:9) was quite disappointing. NO
