    Well I already have oneplus one with me which worked fantastically well. So when I received my invite for Oneplus Two I immediately ordered and received last Monday.
    My first Impression on look it looks similar to One plus one if you are carrying it and takes a while to know it is different. Couple of good things, extra bit of RAM, Better processor, Laser for Camera, Finger Print Censor but believe me this has not changed any thing which can make it different from OPO1. Actually It is the UI which could have made the difference but when you see Oxygen it seems that Cyanogen with clipped wings. Virtually no difference even ICONs are borrowed. There are limitations all over and seems very flat. Though there are screen gestures but certainly animations of screens are missing. Another missing item is you can not control volume of phone, speaker, alarms etc in one click of button as it used to be in OPO1. Camera again does not provide so many options as we have in OPO1.
    In all neither physical view does not make any difference nor user interface. So what it is all about. When world is transcending towards slimmer, lesser bulky, reduced weight phones, we have go a bulkier heavy phone as compared to other phones. more importantly it is very warm in normal usage as well as goes higher if you see any movie or play games. Screen does not create any difference than earlier one. What speed and RAM we have in OPO1 is quite enough than having over rated in OPO2 which does not make any difference.
    If you ask me my bubble of OPO2 is blown away and I still prefer OPO1 over OPO2. Would like to send OPO2 back.
    Meizu MX5 is certainly far better than OPO2 which has better UI, Camera, Display and ofcourse very snappy in speed. Wait for 64 GB Meizu or Meizu Pro 5 which will better phones than OPO2.

    For me - battery life sucks, the rest is awesome.

    Oh, and I can't get OTG working, which is REALLY annoying.

    Try the original OP OTG and type C adapter, also don't forget to enable it at storage.

    I have updated my phone from opo to samsung note 4 and now I have got oneplus two for last few days. First I didnt know I had to replace my sim card. it was quite annoying wait for new sim card to arrive then approximately 4 hours without signals to active the sim card.

    Finally phone is just a brother to opo with very little difference but I love finger print sensor but there are few step back.

    There is no double knock sleep function anymore

    Battery drains a lot quicker

    Less customization

    No fast charging (Quite annoying specially when I want to spend evening with frieinds and I can do fast charging during my short stay at home.)

    Guys who already got opo should wait for oneplus three instead.

    Overall i like the speed and quick opening of phone with finger print sensor.

    As a OPO owner the two hardly feels like an upgrade. I've been using both phones and most of the time I have a hard time figuring out which is which. So far, the screen is not as vibrant as the One(colors look washed out) and the speaker has no bass(OPO1 speakers are better and a bit louder). I need to further test the Camera but so far, I am not impressed.
