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".

Its mod­i­fied An­droid op­er­at­ing sys­tem - Oxy­genOS - on the OnePlus 2 seems to play nicely with the phone's avail­able re­sources.

This brings us to the ex­tra func­tion­al­ity that Oxy­genOS gives us, which is be­yond what stock
