OnePlus Drops OnePlus 2 Price To $349

In December, OnePlus announced that its OnePlus 2 smartphone would be available without an invite. The $389 “flagship killer” was on an invite-only system for four months before it was available to the general public. Now, the company has made the device more appealing with a price change.

The new price is $349, a $40 difference from its original cost. According to OnePlus, the price drop was inevitable.

“As the cost to produce a OnePlus 2 device has never been lower, we believe this is the right time to introduce a new change. We believe great things should be shared,” said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

The change in pricing is the latest in a series of changes from OnePlus. Last month, the company announced free shipping on any order over $100. Around the same time, the invite system for the OnePlus X was also removed so that anyone without an invite could buy it.

The company has additional offers that coincide with the announcement. If you bought the OnePlus 2 in the past 15 days, the company will send you the $40 difference as a refund. Customers who buy any OnePlus device will receive a free StyleSwap Cover or OnePlus X case.

    One plus 2 looks a lot more interesting now. Creating a price gap between it and Moto X pure was a good move.

    one plus two is three. they got it wrong thus their products are wrong. a name change would be an uplift.

    Verizon aught to get off of their completely backwards network onto a network technology that their customers can use when traveling as well. Then I could and many of my friends could consider giving them a try.

    What does that have to do with the fact that unless you want AT&T which BTY does not even work where I live... your SOL?

    Just get T-Mobile then. I've had them for years, and their coverage has increased dramatically in the last year. I can only assume things will continue to improve as well.

    I was thinking about that when I more back up to the Bay Area. Do you have this phone? If so, what are your thoughts. I have the Samsung S# and was waiting to go to the S7 but don't want to pay the big bucks.
