    I gotta say, i wasn't planning on purchasing the OP2 right away but maybe later now i'm not so sure and i will see what others manufacturers realease. so at least the lack of nfc made me lose the excitement.

    Well... In Switzerland i never had and will probably never have how to pay with NFC! It means I won't get crazy because my speakers don't connect to the phone immediately ;)

    My idea of a smartphone ties in with what I really need it for, and that is primarily communication. Like clear phone calls with good reception, smooth email use, good internet connectivity, social networking, overall speed and smoothness in doing all the above. Then a big part of my choice has to do with the overall philosophy of the company that makes the phone. I will never own an iphone for that reason, restrictive company philosophy. Samsungs bloatware and UI turn me off. Oneplus company philosophy attracted me from the beginning. I love to customize and set up my phone and Apps how I like it. If a company pushes a bunch of Apps on me, or an interface on me, or a controlling ecosystem, I don't want their product. Design, specs, camera all have their place. But I like a phone and a company that lets me be me, not a clone consumer, part of a mass of faceless cogs who buy because they said we needed their product.

    It's absolutely OK for.me. I have NFS module on my present smartphone and it's really not useful

    I use it today and I use it a lot for file sharing. I send skate videos to my friends after I film them using android beam. When I upgrade to my oneplus 2 I an gonna have a hard time. Pairing Bluetooth with all my friends

    The first time i heard about nfc, it will allow me the share files with just a touch of the phones i instantly thought i probably never going to use that...

    I had a nexus 5 for almost 2 years i have tried it once just to see how it works and never ever used it again.

    Don't get me wrong, it is a valid technology but the features it brings to my smartphone are just redundant.

    I can share any thing a million different ways and i can pay things with the money i have in my pokets or wallet, debit or credit card, PayPal

    No, NFC is not an issue to my point of view.
    I got 1+1, and I think I might use no more than 5 time on the last 12 months.
    Wants vs. Needed is total 2 different thing..
    As long as:
    Cpu Speed, price, design look, camera, battery, display, space, etc are up there.
    Oneplus is a great phone to have on my top 3 list.

    Wireless charging, fast charging, 2k screen, lack of MicroSD, are all liveable because you can always charge slowly with a cable, you can still see a 1080 screen, and you can use internal storage to store stuff. However NFC, if you aint got it, you NEVER will and there is no alternative.

    The price of the OP2 is kinda misleading, if NFC becomes the must have thing in the next year, you are going to have to get another phone. So is it better to spend a little more now to get a real future proofed phone thats going to last a few years or one that will be useless in a year (if NFC takes off)

    No its not a deal breaker for me. But no quick charge is. I cant charge my phone for 3 plus hours anymore. I am spoiled...

    With Google rolling out Google Pay soon do any of you see the lack of NFC in the OnePlus2 as a deal killer or are you cool with it anyway?

    Nope, the design and the flawed execution of invites was the deal breaker for me!
