    Hey guys, AJ here

    So I've had my OnePlus 2 for a little over 24 hours now

    My unboxing:

    In this thread, let's discuss about my new phone, which a lot of you are planning to get
    So ask me whatever you want to know !

    I will try to answer as much as I can, while some stuff will have to wait for me using it for more time

    Here are some of my thoughts already :

    For camera samples, www.instagram.com/edible_lenses

    Build quality is much stronger than One, and the metal feels great
    Phone is really fast and great performance
    The home button needs a little getting used to, to understand the correct pressure required. Above that, the scanner is really fast and accurate, faster than iPhone
    The button placement is OK, screen shots are hard if you use phone in just one hand
    Customization isn't much, considering I am coming from CM12
    Notification light is strong, and breathes for long
    Connects to Wi-Fi within 3 seconds
    Camera shortcuts are fast
    Camera itself is OK. UI is difficult to understand and remember. Normal photos are good. Macro isn't the best nor can it take you too close to the subject
    Laser AutoFocus is fast
    Front camera produces great photos if your hands not very shaky
    Battery life has been amazing yet, haven't charged since 24 hours, went to a party, used camera for almost an hour for photos and videos, Wi-Fi on mostly. (Sim not yet inserted though)
    Dirt collects easily on the recessed finger print button
    Phone doesn't overheat. Gets slightly warm, but is still cooler than other phones and iPad
    I still haven't been able to remove the back cover, feels too tight

    ∆BATTERY CHARGING STATS: started with 1% battery, at 1 hour was 56%, at 2 hours was 98%. So all those claims about it taking 4 hours to charge can suck it. Under normal conditions, should be just over 2 hours

    This thread will be updated regularly

    PS: this thread in no way means that I have invites to spare. Please don't PM me, I will get angry. If I get invites, I will tell. Keep calm
    PPS: I am not angry at OnePlus. Just that OxygenOS has a lot to improve

    ShoutOut to Amazon India for very quick delivery
    Got it within 36 hours, considering it was a national holiday here !

    (Received my new phone on the 69th independence day of my country)

    Great. Congratulations mate. Lucky you!! :)
    On what basis did you get an invite?
    And how did you order the phone. via amazon India? Was it anticipated to deliver the phone within 24h, I thought it would take 2-3 weeks after order!?

    No, not at all! I'm not the kind of person who would do these things.
