    I just shook my head for real! The OnePlus 2 will not feature an NFC chip. This will be a deal breaker for many of you who use this standardized feature everyday. This means that Android Pay will not work with the Op2. I personally don't use NFC very often. Many of you may never use it at all. It is a feature that has been included in every smartphone I've owned for the past 2 years or so. This includes some of the cheap budget Chinese phones that I have owned.

    Why wouldn't OnePlus include this in their latest and greatest flagship, a device they have self proclaimed as a "2016 flagship killer". OnePlus execs have said that while the OnePlus One has NFC many of its users could not find a use for it, and that they feel like the adoption rate of services like Android Pay will be low for a while. They did say however that if customers demanded it to be added back in the next OnePlus they would.
