Why pay Apple prices when you can get Apple-quality for way, way less? Off-contract, a brand new iPhone 6 will cost you $649. This new phone is just as powerful, but it only costs $329. It's removing the distinction between a budget phone and a flagship phone.

The manufacturer, OnePlus, isn't being coy about its new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Its website announces it as the "2016 Flagship Killer."

The phone's being praised by early adopters like Gizmodo reporter Sean Hollister. It looks great, the hardware is impressive, and you can't beat the price.

There are some drawbacks though, which is probably inevitable for a brand-new product with huge aspirations. The primary drawback is that, although the OnePlus 2 went on sale August 11, that doesn't necessarily mean you can get one now. And you might not be able to get the one you want.
