OnePlus 3 vs OnePlus 2 spec shootout

Last year’s OnePlus 2 was a great phone, but the company caught some flack for using an invite system and deciding to ditch NFC. The OnePlus 3 fixes all that: it’ll be widely available later today for anyone who wants to pick one up, and it packs NFC again.

Wondering what else has changed over last year’s phone? Short answer, a lot. We’ll let you take a closer look at the spec comparisons below. Me? I think I’m gonna have to pick one up at one of the OnePlus pop-up events tomorrow evening.
