    First of all i want to say that i'm not moaning about the screen not being QHD. The truth is that QHD is retarded on phones, because it only drains more battery and it's impossible to distinguish the difference between a proper high PPI FHD screen and a QHD screen by eyesight.​
    (This you got right, oneplus)
    Still the main reason I am not buying oneplus 2 is the screen, because the screen has the same problem as oneplus 1 had. Its digitizer is glued to the screen, so a minor crack from a minor drop will brickify the phone. I don't understand the reasoning behind this decision, because if it's the cost savings it won't be practical for the end user. I have had to replace the screen on my oneplus 1 multiple times and the end result is that i could have bought some overpriced piece of shit and had just as much money left. And if you are talking about a millimeter or two that you can save by using this fused bullshit of a screen. Then you are thinking wrong. Functionality should always come first.

    Yet the others keep on working.

    Second thing that you got wrong is not adding NFC support to the phone. If you are pretending to be fan friendly, then at least have a discussion before removing such important feature.​

    I will not settle for this reason.

    As long as it doesn't have the yellow tint at the bottom like last time around I'm good with the same resolution/size.

    Screen lamination is a technique which is used by every phone company at the moment. You really don't know anything about phones.

    how is having capacative buttons a bad thing?! I love them, hate on screen buttons, take up space and you gotta drag to have them come up when in fullscreen apps, nooo thank you.

    HD = 720p, this is FHD = 1080p.

    If your screen's cracked, I guess you need to replace it anyways, also, it depends, I've seen a lot of cracked screens the past few years, and sometimes the screen still works, other times it doesn't, it just depends on how it's cracked. also, 1080p is more than enough, more would be overkill, it's a phone for goodness sake. I'm probably not going to sit there with my face 10 cm from it.

    So they are thinking 'right'? Therefore they are right, you say. Interesting... You're contradicting your own opinion.

    See the above mistakes you've made in your post. How was it to spread some rubbish out of emotion?

    got to agree to this, I didnt know the OPO had capacitive buttons but they work great and look much neater, so on screen buttons were disabled within days for me

    If I read correctly, you broke your screen multiple times! Guessing you don't use a case, or your careless. Had mine over a year, and not even a nick on the screen.

    I don't see any dealbreakers, as of now. I view the OP2 as a Very Well Priced Option for Consumers at $329. I never myself expected a phone with every single option. 1+ has emphasized that the OP2 is an idea not just a product. Getting a quality phone with great specs (but not everything) in as many hands as possible does work towards that idea. Consumers win,with more options.

    I agree that lack of NFC is something to be upset about, but I don't think the screen being laminated is a bad thing. It helps it be brighter and look better since there is a smaller gap between where the light is being emitted and when it passes through the front glass. That's just physics ;P

    Ive dropped my OPO several times and it never cracked, I use NFC almost never. Im only afraid of grounded display and overheating.

    The main deal breaker for me is my OnePlus One.
    As to your arguments, the screen is not the same as the OPO.
    NFC support is not a huge deal, just a minor annoyance at this point since most places don't even have NFC payments yet, nor even the basic tags.
    Capacitive buttons are a must. Otherwise the UI becomes too slow for me at least and also the space taken up by the onscreen buttons makes no sense to me.
    The only logical place for the fingerprint sensor is on the front. The home button is also improved since it gives better feedback when tapping it.

    For those reasons I didn't choose any options in your poll, because none of them makes enough sense.
