OnePlus 2 is THE phone that is the talk of the town. It’s releasing world-wide on August 11,2015. One version of it, has got an internal storage of 64 GB. So downloading WhatsApp video after video is no problem. The ample storage on this phone is the same as my MacBook 64GB Air laptop! This phone also packs an embedded 3,300mAh battery, one of most long-lasting in the market. It has a 4GB ram. My first smart phone had less than 1 GB ram and I almost broke the screen by frequently pressing its non-responsive screen! And this has 4 GB ram! Wow! Says one reviewer: “new OnePlus is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 chip. This chipset supports 4K streaming video and speedier camera performance. There’s also an Adreno 430 graphics processor to provide 3D gaming capability. The OnePlus 2 has a larger 1.3-micron sensor that lets in more light for better low-light shots.” Another says, ‘the OnePlus 2, strikes all the right chords. The metal-framed phone keeps some of the same design aesthetics of the original, but adds a more polished feel. Together with the powerful hardware and the phone’s low price compared to rival flagships, the OnePlus 2 sings a powerful song of temptation for buyers who have yet to make up their minds.’( “I love my OnePlus1. It compares nicely to the Apple 6 Plus my friend has. We’ve used the GPS maps features side by side and Google Maps on my OnePlus1 kills the Apple system. Only I saved $ 400. Can’t wait to lay my hands on the OnePlus2!” – so says a smartphone freak. And what’s more you can pay and get rosewood, bamboo, black apricot and Kevlar back-covers for this (sm)art phone!

A post has this following information about the “flag-ship killer” smart phone – One Plus 2 – a phone that offers the specs of a phone like Iphone6 or Samsung Galaxy6, at about 40% less the price:

‘Like it or not, OnePlus is sticking to its invitation-based sales model for the OnePlus 2. In other words, only those who have an invitation will be allowed to purchase the hyped smartphone on August 11th, 2015 when it is scheduled to go on sale. How do you get a OnePlus 2 invitation? Well, that’s what we’re here to clarify for you. “You will notice that you cannot just secure an invite just like that, you still have to earn it.” ‘

“The good news is that OnePlus has a reservation list on its web page, and anyone can sign up for a OnePlus 2 invitation by leaving their email address. The bad news is that there are over 400,000 people currently on the list (as of this writing), and the number is growing steadily. Of course, it won’t hurt to sign up anyway. All invitations that are sent out but not used within their expiration period will be forwarded to those who are on the waiting list.”

“But even if you sign up right away, it is not easy to estimate how long it will take until your invitation arrives. With all the people already in line, it could take weeks before you’re finally given the chance to purchase a OnePlus 2. That’s why our advice is to brace yourself with patience. Also, you better have your credit card ready to use and OnePlus account set up in advance. Once you get your invitation, you’ll have only 24 hours to use it, regardless of whether you read your notification email or not.”

“While the said waiting list is scarily long, there is a way you can cut the line. That is done by spreading the word. Once you sign up and confirm your email address, you’ll be given a referral link which you can share with friends and family in any way imaginable. You’ll be bumped up in the queue for every person who signs up via your link. But on the downside, you can (and likely will) fall behind in line if those behind you get more referrals. (I’ve fallen behind more than 300 places since signing up a couple of hours ago.)” {}.

“However, with the implementation of the invite system, getting your hands on the phone may still prove to be the hardest hurdle to cross” says another phone review site

So much about smart phone craze! This OnePlus 2 phone reminds of me of the “One”. I call Jesus the “One” because is the ONLY Way to salvation (John 14:6) and the ONLY Name that can save us – a humanity lost in sin (Acts 4:12). He called himself, “the One greater than Jonah” (Matt. 12:41). He is the “One greater than Solomon” (Matt. 12:42).

He is the only ONE! But we can approach this Jesus at any time of need, so says the Bible (Heb. 4:15-16). No need to form a queue!

He says “come”. “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away….” Jesus says (John 6:37). Read that again – “Whoever!” That includes YOU. That includes ME. That includes EVERYONE! “Let the little children come to me….” Mouthed Jesus who also said that everyone who wanted to enter Heaven must repent and become like little children [who put their faith in their parents] (Matt. 19:14). “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest!” – that is Jesus’ invitation for you as well. Is there that Shot Put ball of guilt in your heart? Come carrying that burden. Jesus, who died and rose again for you one the Cross, will forgive you and your heart will become light and restful! The God of the Bible says, “Come now, and let us reason together…Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18). Your sin may be unprintable. But they need not be unforgivable. Come now and they will be! “Come to me and drink!” said Jesus in the Bible (John 7:37). That was a figurative way of saying, “Have a daily, deep, relationship of faith and trust with me….”(see John 7:38).

Would you come? Now!
