    It will still be cheaper and better than current method. Well if you buy an SD card for under $5 then you know it's gonna be shit.

    The reason why they aren't using microSD has nothing to do with quality, but the fact that they make more money. Just look at the price difference between 16GB/64GB of the OPO, not realistic.

    Thats a good price, In my country you get a:
    SanDisk Extreme Pro microSDXC Class 10 UHS-I Class 3 95MB/s 64GB
    That's a good card, but its 64 gig for 88$

    The internal memory is a eMMC 5.0 that allows for reads at 250 MB/s and writes at 90 MB/s, so to match that you need an UHS-1 Class 10 MicroSD, and the diffrence between 16 och 64 Gb version is acctually more than just the storage, it's got 1 Gb more ram also..

    And as a company you are more likely to get it for 50% if you are expected to buy millions of them.
    You are not good at getting good prices mate..

    I was talking about the OPO, not OPT. Look at the price difference b/w the 16GB/64GB, it's not realistic from a cost value. They make a lot more money from the 64GB.

    Yes, but still, it's not oneplus that buys the memory, it's the end user, so a UHS-1 Class 10 95 MB/s MicroSD card for an enduser, in 128 Gb, for 30$ that will NEVER ever happen in 2015... Not if the cheapest is 88$ for 64 Gig in my country...

    That is only the 48MB/s version, look for the 90 MB/s to match the eMMC 5.0 memory..

    The microSD is still cheaper and better. It does meet the speed criteria by far.

    Cheaper yes, better, not really. :) But, I'm an optimizing geek, rather have the network being the limiting link then the storage, but every one is different.. You do have some better queuing and write optimization on en eMMC memory also then on an MicroSD.. :)

    The difference between 250MB/s and 45MB/s isn't that significant when it comes to normal usage and mobile gaming. Not many are using her phone for extreme video editing I'd guess.

    We have different preferences, that's it.

    Guess its a useful feature for those who travel and live to the east. It says the sim card slots are nano sims according to the OP2 page. Gonna have to go get one of those haha

    Very usefull. I always wanted this, but the phones that have this feature are not that good. With OP2 I will be able to have both my Belgian and Portuguese sim cards on a top notch phone.

    I think it's useful for people that spend lots of time travelling in other countries, as this means you don't have to change SIM card when you go to another country, but I haven't got any use for it. I've got a dual SIM phone now and I don't use it. But it's a great idea.

    This is what I use my dual SIM for

    1. On my home location - office number for work, personal no for family + data plan
    2. When on vacation- office no stays on roaming, get a local no for my wife and another for me, data plan for map when driving around
    3. When on Work travel - office no stays on, but personal no get disabled
    4. When visiting hometown - office no stays on roaming, change the other chip to the no which I have had since the late 90s and everyone I know in the city has it

    I find the dual sims very very useful
