The OnePlus 2 and Motorola Moto X Force have been released in July 2015 and November 2015, respectively. While the first is the successor and the improved version of the OnePlus One, the Chinese manufacturer’s debut phone with a huge success, the second is also known as Droid Turbo 2, in some countries. Today we’re going to compare these two handsets and let you decide which one of them suits your needs better.
The OnePlus 2 measures 151.8×74.9×9.9mm and weights 175 grams. Likewise its predecessor, it features a Sandstone Black texture, but it’s 1mm thicker and has a metal frame running across the sides. Also, on the front side, under the screen is a new fingerprint scanner. The Moto X Force is thinner and lighter, as it measures 149.8x78x9.2mm and weights 169 grams. The phone benefits from a water repellent coating and its back is made by either leather, ballistic nylon or soft-touch polycarbonate.
The OnePlus 2 has an IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 401 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Moto X Force comes with a bigger AMOLED display of 5.4-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 540 ppi. The display is shatterproof and Motorola has worked on this technology for 3 years, as it prevents the screen from being easily cracked, thanks to the five layers of protection.
