There are many tech lovers and enthusiasts in Nepal who crave for latest smartphones and gadgets. One Plus One was one of the most desired product at its launch because of its price and the specs it was offering. The demand was off the chart but the company had a bad marketing of invite only. People needed to have invite to buy the phone, so some people decided to sell it. Even though it doesn’t have huge user base and service center it is still the best phone you can get at the price range. As for our Nepali users we will compare the new One Plus Two and One Plus One with their specs and price.
Starting from the look, build quality, hardware, software etc the new phone has everything better but we don’t mean to say that the predecessor is outdated. Actually it is still a killer phone to buy but there are no authorized re sellers. So you will have to check with third arty dealers, importers and distributors. There are so many dealers these days where everyone is competing with each other. Hotdeals and MK Trade Line both provide these devices in Nepal but MK Trade Line doesn’t make you wait for a week.
