The cheapest OnePlus 2 is no longer available in the US and EU

by John_A

In a move surely to annoy budget conscious customers, OnePlus has discontinued the 16 GB OnePlus 2 in the United States and in Europe. In a statement to techradar, a OnePlus spokesman said, “According to feedback we have seen much greater interest in the 64GB version of the OnePlus 2 in North America and Europe, so we have removed the 16GB version from those store pages as of this week.”

OnePlus has one of the best value for performance phones on the market, but it seems odd to get rid of the option that has the lowest barrier of entry to its customers. You’ll still be able to pick up the cheaper option in developing markets like India where budgets may be a bit tighter.

If you’re unfamiliar with the OnePlus 2 here’s a rundown of the phone.

  • 5.5″ 1080P LCD Screen
  • 64 GB Storage
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Oxygen OS 2.2 (at launch)
  • Snapdragon 810
  • 13 MP f/2.0 rear camera
  • 5 MP front facing camera
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • USB Type-C
  • No NFC, Wireless Charging or Quick Charging

At only $389 the OnePlus 2 is still a great option but it’s running into competition like the Moto X Pure and Nexus 5X. OnePlus is still offering the even more budget friendly OnePlus X for around $250. It will be an option for some, but the lack of some LTE bands, its small screen and older specs will turn off some customers.

What do you think of OnePlus’ decision to drop the 16 GB OnePlus 2 in the US? What do you want to see next from OnePlus? Let us know down in the comments.
