Customers who do decide to buy the OnePlus 2 will be relieved to know that the company seems to have solved the reported heating issues with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor. The unit I used only felt a little warm on the back, but nothing I would complain about.
The fingerprint scanner also functions quite well, and can activate the phone in less than a second.
Buying the phone won't be easy. OnePlus is still a young company and has limited manufacturing capacity. For now, the OnePlus 2 will only be available for customers who have received a company invite. It goes on sale Aug. 11, and can be bought with 16 GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM at $329, or 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM for $389.
