The Chinese startup that rocked the smartphone world back in 2014 is no longer a fumbling rookie, and in addition to a gradual phasing out of its controversial invite purchase system, it’s intent to show it with frequent and much more inspired discounts than ever.

Not only are you able to freely buy the OnePlus X already, and score gratis cases for Valentine’s Day, but the OnePlus 2 is now available at a brand new price globally forever. Or at least until production costs increase again, which will probably never happen, given the 5.5-incher’s components won’t be getting any younger.

Previously sold for $389 stateside in the sole configuration standing after the 16/3GB elimination, the upper mid-range phone sets you back $349 starting today. Or £249 (down from £289) on British shores, or €345 in other European countries, where it used to cost €399.

Granted, competition in the budget-friendly market segment has been heating up like crazy recently, but at the end of the day, it’s still hard to find such an affordable Android endowed with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage space, Full HD screen resolution, Snapdragon 810 processing power, and 3,300 mAh battery juice.

It’s that much harder to get a similar device worldwide with free shipping, and OnePlus will definitely cover your Marshmallow update before long, which isn’t exactly a guarantee with other up-and-coming Chinese OEMs. Bottom line, the OnePlus 2 might be worth a chance even as it nears its first birthday.
