Our lead developer Simon is stepping out of his code cave to share some technology thoughts with you all on a regular basis.
This time around he is talking about the new OnePlus phone, and why you should 'Never Settle'.
Can a cheap smartphone really stack up?
August saw the much anticipated release of the OnePlus 2, billed as the “2016 flagship killer”, this new boy to the smartphone market goes toe to toe with the latest top-tier phone releases such as the Galaxy S6 but for a fraction of the cost.
Available from just £240 for the 16Gb model the OnePlus 2 boasts an quality processor, impressive screen and a 13 megapixel camera this phone certainly seems to stack up against some of it’s competitors. Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks, you can’t extend the memory with an SD card and there are no wireless charging options which feature on many other phones on the market but when you’re producing hardware at this price something has to give.
Sold? If you fancy getting your hands on this impressive phone there’s a slight hitch, it’s only available via invite and the waiting list is pretty long but you can sign up https://oneplus.net/uk/invites
If you get a spare invite, can you let me know? I'm itching to get my hands on this phone.
Over and out.
