Last year, OnePlus made a name for itself with its high performance, low price OnePlus One smartphone, a flagship-level device sold at midrange level prices. A year on, and OnePlus is back and more confident than ever, proclaiming its latest smartphone as the "2016 Flagship Killer".

It feels really solid, and it is hard to flick it to the wrong position and end up missing an important call.
