First, the oneplus note 2 sports a meet at a dimension, 1200 ai processor and is offered in three ram and two storage variants. You get to choose between 6 gb and 8 gb ram variants that are paired with 128 gb of storage and the top of the line variant that has 12 gb of ram and 256 gb of storage. You dont get expandable storage, but i see no reason to complain. You also get a 90 hertz amoled display, so scrolling feels smoother and the ui feels fluid. The in display fingerprint scanner was responsive and face. Recognition was consistent. The oneplus note 2 could handle everything. I threw at it and could multitask without any issues. Battlegrounds mobile, india bgmi was playable without any lag or stutter at the high preset. If you are a heavy user, the note 2 should be able to take on your demands without any complaints in terms of ui. The oneplus note 2 runs oxygen, os 11.3 on top of android 11.
oneplus also promises two years of software updates and three years of security updates, which is reassuring now, since oneplus has announced that it will be merging oxygen os with opposed color os. You do see a few hints of color os in the interface. The changes are in drastic and the ui still feels like oxygen os. As of now the oneplus note 25g has a triple camera setup. At the back featuring a 50 megapixel sony, imx 766 primary camera, an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle, camera with 119.7 degree feet of view and a 2 megapixel mono camera. The camera app ui is slightly different compared to what ive seen on older oneplus smartphones. But i was able to find my way around without any issues. Daylight photos looked natural and objects at a distance were recognizable. The ultra wide angle, camera has a wider field of view, but there is a noticeable drop in image. Quality close up shots were crisp with natural looking depth for the background portrait mode lets you set the level of blur before taking a shot. The output had good edge detection and separation from the background photos, shot in low light were good and text at a distance was also legible. Oneplus has introduced nightscape ultra mode on the note 2 to capture better photos in low light. It takes longer to capture a shot in this mode, but the results are brighter. With better details in the shadows. Selfie is taken with a 32 megapixel front camera in daylight, as well as low light.
Look natural selfie portraits worked even with masks on and the phone. Let me set the level of portrait blur before taking the shot. The oneplus note. 2 comes in blue haze, gray, sierra and green wood color options. I got the blue variant for this review and it has a premium look and feel it weighs 189 grams and features a big 6.43 inch display with a glass back, even though the mid frame is made out of plastic. This phone does not feel cheap, like the oneplus, not the not 2. Also doesnt have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. However, it has stereo speakers which are a welcome edition. The oneplus note 2 packs a 4500mah battery that can last for over a day, our hd video loop test ran for 19 hours and 46 minutes, with the refresh rate set to 90 hertz. The included 65 watt warp charger is quite impressive too. It can quickly charge the phone to 98 in just 30 minutes. The oneplus note 2 is a good all rounder and sticks to the companys core philosophy of offering good performance and cameras for the price. In a way, it reminds me of the older oneplus smartphones that offered very good value for money now, given that one plus flagship series are getting expensive every year. The oneplus note 2 offers some relief to those who dont wish to spend as much so that was my review of the oneplus note. 2.. Now what do you think about this smartphone?
