OnePlus 2 price drop announced

OnePlus2The OnePlus 2 is already a cost-effective smartphone that offers high end features for a mid range price. But now the 64GB model is getting a significant price cut as a direct result of the fact that its 16GB stable mate is being ousted from the range.

Initially, the UK price for the 64GB OnePlus 2 was £289, but the manufacturer announced that it will now cost just £249. This is only £10 more than the outgoing 16GB model, which should please people who were thinking about picking up this Android powerhouse.

OnePlus revealed that the reason behind this decision is that the 64GB model was proving far more popular than the 16GB version, meaning that customers were not content with such a small amount of onboard storage.

Since there is no microSD memory card slot on this phone, the amount of storage it offers is fixed. This means that making the 64GB model more affordable is a move that will ensure the range is even more competitive than before.

With a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a fingerprint scanner and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor onboard, the OnePlus 2 is easily the match of the iPhone 6S Plus at less than half the price of Apple’s handset.
