Are flagship devices overrated ?.

Chinese smartphone maker One Plus, which is launching its OnePlus 2 handset on Monday, has announced it will continue to use the invite system for buying the product on its official website.Consumers have begun to ask the question – is the flagship truly a superior device or just the talisman that creates an aura around a brand thereby impacting sales of a brand’s lower priced devices? ‘We basically weren’t prepared for what happened’ OnePlus founder Carl Pei told a leading global publication in 2015. The company has confirmed that the primary few invitations for the OnePlus 2 were currently prepared. “Invites are still a necessity” but this time the company is promising a reservation list, more inventory and a “quicker rollout of shareable invites,” according to an Indian Express report. The highly anticipated followup to the OnePlus One, regarded by many as one of the best phones of 2014, will release in India at a New Delhi event on Tuesday.

Not many industry experts gave this ‘Johnny come lately’ much of a chance and some even questioned the OnePlus One’s self-proclaimed title – ‘Flagship Killer’. From price to specifications, here are 5 points to note: It is also recommended for attendees to use either a Google cardboard or OnePlus cardboard for better experience. But one million units later OnePlus’ moniker doesn’t seem too pompous. 2014 and 2013 have seen a major churn in the smartphone business as markets like India and China lead the growth numbers.

However, if you can’t arrange a cardboard, Oneplus has also built a cardboard-free 360 experience in their app, which they have claimed would still be interactive. Clearly none of the devices in the sub Rs 20,000 can boast of the build quality of the Apple iPhone 6 or the all-metal HTC One Plus 9 or the ‘edgy’ brilliance of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. OnePlus cardboard set is currently out of stock on Amazon, but there are quite a few other cardboard virtual reality headsets available, so if you’re really desperate to watch the event in VR, we suggest you order on quickly from an e-commerce site.

To share invites, a user will get one to two weeks and the number of shared invites that can be sent out will initially be low; it will increase as production is ramped up. “The more you share, the more invites you get,” OnePlus has said.

Priced under $450, OnePlus 2 will come with 4 GB LPDDR4, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and a Type C-USB port, which supports various new USB standards like USB 3.1, USB power delivery (USB PD), HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA with adapters.

A spate of slinky, ‘slim phones’ in this price band have also given consumers who put aesthetics above all else, an array of options – the Micromax Sliver 5 and Gionee’s S7 are among the devices that are less than 6 millimetres thin. For them, OnePlus has decided to make the event available in Cardboard-free, 360 video as well. “If you simply find yourself Cardboard-less on July 27 (the launch date), don’t despair! It’s not just about size alone – devices like OnePlus One led the way for mid-market devices with a high-quality 1080×1920 pixel LCD display that packed 401 pixels per inch (PPI). While conventional logic generally points to large displays and powerful processors being battery guzzlers, devices like the LG G4 and the iPhone 6 Plus have managed to deliver stellar battery life.

Nevertheless, the company claims that it has made further improvements on top of the USB Type C standard that they have patented and will be exclusive to OnePlus. These are not exceptions in an evolving smartphone space, a whole host of devices have the capability to multi-task and support intense (gaming or other apps) usage. It offers optimal support for power-saving low frequency mode that brings clock speeds down when performing those everyday and necessary tasks,” says OnePlus.

While we’ve seen some great innovations in some of the Android flagships in 2015 aside from the obvious improvements in display and the camera, most manufacturers are still seeking answers ‘to the next big thing’. What’s true however is that handset manufacturers have created more value through more engaging user experiences for a growing band of discerning consumers. Flagship devices that have created a strong value proposition continue to be relevant while some others who have taken the easier route of resting on past glories have been ambushed by the likes of Xiaomi and OnePlus. As for software, OxygenOS is said to have been optimised to work seamlessly with the Snapdragon 810. “Of the aforementioned eight CPU processors, these vary in size for different tasks in the phone. For example, one or two of the larger processors would be used for graphics-heavy gaming, while in contrast, the small processor would be used for simple text messaging.
