Unlike with the OnePlus One, the OnePlus Two is gonna have some big competition now with the Asus Zenfone 2 and Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 both being very good phones. The fingerprint scanner sounds awesome though and it'd be a good selling point to have one on a cheaper phone like this.

The main benefit of the OnePlus 2 over the Zenfone is that it's bootloader is easily unlocked, whereas ASUS has yet to release the unlock tool. The OnePlus 2 will also lack the bloat and OEM skin of the Zenfone, which is, in my opinion, a huge benefit.

I'll just be happy if they can actually ship a phone without all the invite nonsense...

With this being their second phone, that could very well be a possibility. Perhaps they've saved enough money for manufacturing phones without the need for an invite system.

We can only hope...

They said that they will continue to use invites for round 2. See here in an interview at AusDroid.

If I had an interest in the phone the invite system makes it non existent.

Fingers crossed. It took ALL the fun out of trying to get the first OnePlus...

I don't think I have seen another Android vendor with PR ideas as bad as OnePlus.

Does "laser focus fingerprint identification embedded in the home button" mean that the 2 will have a physical home button? I sure hope not!

Probably something similar to the Asian M9 variant

Snapdradon 810, no MicroSD, irreplaceable battery? Not interested.

I remember reading somewhere that it was going to be around $400-500.

If this is the case, though, damn...!

I do believe that OnePlus is going to be a strong competitor if people can stick to it. They'll learn from their mistakes and improve their phone enough to where they're on par with possibly even the Samsung Galaxy brand.

Taking into account that this is a relatively small upgrade and that most folks in the market for a cheap high-end phone running Cyanogen already have an OPO ánd probably don't have money to buy a new phone (why else did they buy the OPO), I doubt if this will be as big as a success as the OPO.

As much as I love my opo, I can believe it, but only if CM still supports it.
