1. Design: The build and design of OnePlus Two is quite similar to that of OnePlus One and sticks to the sandstone black finish except that it is shorter, narrower and heavier. Cosmetically, there are few changes in OnePlus Two and has been given slight facelift. The updates include slightly different positioning of camera in rear panel (to support laser focus sensor), touch-type fingerprint sensor home button in the front and a metallic (aluminium/magnesium alloy) frame with a speaker grill at the bottom. The metal buttons on OnePlus 2 have replaced the original plastic ones of its predecessor. OnePlus has also introduced “Alert Slider” in its latest device to have more control over its notifications. With this, the user can customize the notifications and prioritize them. OnePlus Two also comes with Style Swap covers for its rear panel, which include Kevlar, rosewood, black apricot and bamboo panels for a more personalized touch and feel.

2. Display: Coming to display, both the devices come with 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD display with 1920x1080 pixels resolution. The screens are protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass to avoid scratches and any accidental mishap. The only difference is that the picture clarity and sharpness is much more amplified in the latest device.

3. Hardware and Operating System : OnePlus Two comes with 64-bit octo-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz along with 4 GB RAM , hence providing ultra fast performance and other features like fingerprint, LTE and fast charging, to name a few. If you were impressed with Cyanogen OS of OnePlus One, you will definitely love the improved Oxygen OS user interface. The manufacturer has also provided more intensive apps and smooth multitasking to improve functionality of OnePlus Two.

4. Camera: Both the handsets support Sony IMX214 13 MP rear camera with an F2.0 aperture. OnePlus 2 comes with added camera features like Laser auto focus, advanced optical image stabilization and two tone flash leading to sharper images along with the camera focus just in 0.33 milliseconds.

Since OnePlus Two is being proclaimed as flagship killer device of 2015, its direct competition lies with the flagship devices of other brands like HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, Apple iPhone 6 and Sony Xperia Z3. OnePlus Two outperforms other flagship devices in terms of specifications as well as price. In the price range of Rs. 24,999 for OnePlus Two 64GB variant and 22,999 for OnePlus Two 16GB variant, it is really a steal deal. Moreover, the addition of fingerprint sensor, latest OS and processor and USB Type-C connector make it more desirable than OnePlus One.
