We can see why they dare to call the OnePlus 2 the “Flagship Killer of 2016”. While it doesn't actually live up to that title, against other current smartphones within its bracket, it's an outright bully. It's the only phone that fits in the sub-RM1,999 category with flagship-class hardware. While we were very taken with the Xiaomi Mi Note, its Snapdragon 801 processor is showing its age. The Mi Note Pro would have been a better comparison, but Xiaomi isn't officially selling that in this region. Perhaps the higher powers like to play fair, because the only way of buying a OnePlus 2 is through an invite code from OnePlus themselves.
