OnePlus 2 is the company’s new flagship handset, and a direct successor to the OnePlus One which launched last year. OnePlus One was one of the best smartphone of 2014, and the expectations for the OnePlus 2 were quite high. The company has managed to seriously upgrade this device’s specs, and keep its price quite low. The OnePlus 2 is, on paper, quite a more powerful device than the OnePlus One, especially the 4GB model, though it has its drawbacks. That being said, we have tons of coverage when it comes to the OnePlus 2, and today we’ll add a bit more content to it.
We’ve already shared the OnePlus 2 teardown about two weeks ago. That teardown came directly from China, and today we’re going to take a look at iFixit’s teardown of OnePlus’ new flagship. If you take a look at the gallery down below you’ll find only a couple of iFixit’s OnePlus 2 teardown images, we’re unable to include more due to iFixit’s policy, if you’d like to check out all of them you’ll have to follow the source link below. Anyhwo, iFixit gave OnePlus’ newest handset 7 out of 10 repairability score (10 is easiest to repair), while mentioning that the biggest obstacle in the whole procedure were the LCD and digitizer glass. The two are fused together, and must be replaced as a single part. iFixit had to apply some heat in order to remove it from the midframe.
