“The OnePlus 2 has limited Australian LTE band support, but the model shipping from the Hong Kong based company lists support for the 1800MHz Band 3 LTE”
What does this mean? Does it support LTE or not? Or will it be limited in speed?
Here’s a somewhat convoluted answer, hope this helps: No version of the OP2 fully supports all Australian LTE bands, however, the UK/Hong Kong/Chinese variant of the phone supports most Australian LTE bands for all three major carriers (Optus, Telstra and Vodafone). The US variant of the OnePlus 2 does not support all or even most Australian LTE bands, and should be avoided (E.G, the US version is missing the 1800MHz Band 3, whereas the HK/UK/Chinese one has it). The OnePlus 2 version Oppomart is selling does include that Band 3 and is likely a HK/Chinese version of the phone. So… Read more »
As someone who travels between the USA and Australia quite a bit, having two models of phone is ridiculous. Especially when the business model is built around not selling through carriers.
As it stands my oneplus one is going to be replaced with the Moto X style.
Its missing the 700mhz LTE (was hopping it would be magicly added before they started selling it). The Moto Play has it and looks to be about the same price its next on my list.
The Moto Play does look nice. The 3630mAh battery is the largest I’ve seen. However, 2GB of RAM is a little small, and I’m not sure how decent the Snapdragon 615 is. Also, there’s no band 40 (L2300) for Optus customers.
Stephen, can you advise where you saw the Moto Play and the price?
How did they get stock before OP is shipping? Not sure why they sell them to retailers but require direct customers to have an invite. If they included the right LTE bands, I’d be all over it.
you can purchase the phone without invites in china
Nice post. I ordered one on Thursday from Oppomart and it shipped yesterday via TNT. Although the cases and screen protectors say they are ‘in stock’, they not actually in stock to ship until late next week FYI. But the phone is good to go 🙂
Hi Adam! Please report back when you get it, very interested in getting one from OppoMart. Thanks!
No worries. I’ll report back once it arrives. Hopefully late next week.
Be looking forward to when your phones here too, thinking of buying from Oppomart also. Like to know whether it’s the HK version and has oxygen os or the hydrogen os
Well the OP2 arrived today, and it’s the A2001 model (which I think is the Chinese/HK variant), and it was preloaded with OxygenOS. 🙂
Wow that was faster than expected! Congrats 🙂 guess I’ll be ordering mine too!
Hi Adam, have you had any problems with 4g coverage or performance in general? Very interested to hear how it is performing.
I thought the Chinese variant had a different OS (HydrogenOS). How are you finding the phone?
Hi Mick. Mine came with OxygonOS installed. Not sure if OppoMart flashed it or not. The box was open when I got it. Otherwise I no longer have the phone. I didn’t really like it in the end. Wasn’t super impressed with the screen or the OS.
Quick update, my tracking has updated from TNT, and it appears the phone was shipped out of Shenzhen, not HK. (It’s in HK now en route to Sydney). This interested me only because most of these grey import phones come from HK, not mainland China.
Yes please. Although it’s not exactly a flagship killer price this time is it?
As an Ingress tragic and a photographer, the Samsungs are now crossed off the list. So the choices seem to be down to this, the LG G4 and the Motorola Style.
