    It wasn't an easy task following up on a phone that people already loved, but OnePlus has done just that with its second-gen flagship. Mostly, anyhow. The OnePlus 2 is an improvement over its predecessor in just about every way, with fast performance and solid build quality, all for a reasonable starting price of $329. That said, OnePlus faces stiffer competition in this price range than it did a year ago. Meanwhile, this updated model makes a few missteps, including a lack of NFC, a flaky fingerprint sensor and some early-build bugs. Given that OnePlus seems to be working on fixes for those lingering software issues, we still strongly recommend this, with a score of 86 out of a 100. It's definitely worth a look, provided you don't care about NFC and don't mind the lack of expandable storage. Learn about all that and more in our mini review video, and if you have time for a deep dive, check out our full review.
