OnePlus 2 Storage


Last week, when I attended the Captain Panaka cosplay convention in Afghanistan, I probably took way more pictures than I should have. But what can I say? My Mom says I’m a great photographer. If you take a lot of pictures, videos, or just download a lot of apps, you’re going to want to have a phone with a decent amount of storage. 

The phone I brought with me was the OnePlus 2. It’s a great phone for the price, but what kind of storage options are that? Let’s take a look, so you’ll know what you need before you head off to the next convention.


Internal Storage

The OnePlus 2 has two options to choose from for the internal storage. There is a 16 GB model for $329, then there is a big jump to the 64 GB model for $389.


16 GBs is a little on the low end for smartphone these day. I have found that on 16 GB devices, I usually have them completely full after a few days. After that it’s a constant routine of deleting stuff and pushing it to the cloud.

So I definitely recommend that 64 GB version of this phone. Not only do you get more storage, but it comes with more RAM as well.

Expandable storage

This phone does not have an SD card slot, so you are not going to be able to use any of your cards with this phone. But that’s ok! There are lots of alternatives.

The OnePlus 2 has a USB Type C port on the bottom. There are many different USB drives that will be compatible with this device. Check out Amazon, to find USB Type C Flash Drives.

Along with a flash drive, you can get a USB Type C OTG adapter that will allow you to use any full size USB drives with your phone. These things are dirt cheap and very useful. I would recommend getting at least 2.

Cloud Storage

OnePlus isn’t currently pushing any kind of cloud service, but it’s all good. Just get your Google Drive or Dropbox setup and you’ll be good to go. The phone is equipped with super fast 80.211ac WiFi, so everything will sync nice and fast, over a good WiFi connection.

Anyways, that’s about it. Cheerio, friends!
