OnePlus X Review

 

OnePlus, a brand known for its smartphone built around the motto “never settle” typically aims for the best performance/value or features/value phones. They are historically a single-product company as well, focusing on one handset at a time.

Once again OnePlus shows that it can bring an amazing value to a product. In terms of absolute value, I would say that this phone is basically your 2014 high-end phone, with a design that would beat most 2014 Android handsets. This in itself is a feat.

OnePlus X Smartphone Review

 

Revamped. The X model by OnePlus is a smartphone that is positioned below the present flagship but is better in some aspects. It only sports an SoC from last year, and thus the configuration is very similar to that of the flagship device. However, the...

stylish design, fast SoC, expandable storage, decent speaker, good battery life

sleek surface, card tray stiff-running with card, no USB Type C, no NFC, sluggish micro-SD slot, no 64 bit SoC

OnePlus' X is actually a well-configured mid-range smartphone at a fair price. However, it is combined with a bitter aftertaste seeing that the former OnePlus One high-end smartphone is superior to the X model in all aspects but its 64 GB version only...

OnePlus X review: a cute phone that cuts corners

 

Dear Vlad, I like Android phones, but I don't like carrying around enormous bricks of technology — what's the phone for me? The best Android smartphones are often also the biggest. Nexus 6P....

Handsome, minimalist design ; Vanishingly small and light for a 5-inch phone ; Oxygen OS is an attractive take on Android

Slippery to hold ; No fingerprint reader or NFC ; Mediocre camera ; Lacks proper LTE support in United States

OnePlus X

 

The inexpensive OnePlus X is fast, beautifully designed and has some nifty customizable features.

The glossy handset is slippery and has limited compatibility with key LTE bands in the US.

The OnePlus X is one of the best budget phones of the year, but its limited LTE support make it a crapshoot for US customers who want high-speed data.

OnePlus X (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked OnePlus X is a premium Android phone for an affordable price, but missing North American LTE bands and a frustrating invite-only setup makes it hard to recommend for U.S. users.

Affordable. Premium build. Nice display. Sharp camera. Bloatware-free. MicroSD and dual SIM slots.

Missing key North American LTE bands. Frustrating invite-only purchase system. Aging processor.

Software, Availability, and Conclusions The OnePlus X runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with OxygenOS 2.1.2 running on top. Despite being a custom UI, the only pre-installed app is SwiftKey. Aside from that, OxygenOS is mostly stock Android, with some extra...

OnePlus X review

 

The OnePlus X is the best-looking phone for $250, but lacks solid LTE support in the U.S.

At just $250, the OnePlus X is one of the best-looking phones you can buy, and people will imagine it costs twice or even three times that amount. The processor and specs give its game away, but the addition of the AMOLED screen puts it ahead of...

OnePlus X review: An inexpensive phone that doesn't feel cheap

 

The OnePlus X is a surprisingly good device for $250, but it's missing some essential features.

Better-than-average battery life will get you through the day ; Dual-SIM slots for world travelers ; It doesn't look like a cheap phone

Camera performance is good, but inconsistent ; Supports limited number of LTE bands

The OnePlus X is a good looking phone with pretty decent camera, battery, and processor performance—and it's super cheap.

OnePlus X review: Never settle for second best

 

The OnePlus X breaks new ground for the young Chinese company. Making the X, OnePlus eschewed its usual formula of stuffing the best processor in a ridiculously cheap phone. Instead, it has repurposed the internals of its debut OnePlus One into a...

Impeccable build quality ; Strong performance ; Cheapest OnePlus yet

Bad camera, day and night ; So-so display ; Limited LTE support

It seemed like a dream on paper: The specs of the company's excellent debut flagship squeezed into a smaller, well constructed shell. In reality, OnePlus has cut some corners here. The X suffers in the camera and display department, and for some reason...

OnePlus X Review

 

OnePlus is not your typical smartphone company. It does not have a multi-billion marketing budget, it does not have a worldwide chain of retail stores, and it does not have a gazillion of handsets behind its back. What OnePlus does have, on the other...

Outstanding design ; Responsive and no-nonsense UI ; Good value for money ; Dual SIM functionality ; Camera is very fast and takes good-enough photos in good light ; Bundled with a screen protector and a case

Even games that are not very demanding are choppy ; The display’s color accuracy is poor ; You’d normally need an invitation to buy the phone ; Poorly designed physical and capacitive buttons ; Earpiece sound quality is disappointing ; Mediocre...

Prior to having the chance to use the OnePlus X as a daily driver, we were genuinely excited about this phone. It seemed like a killer mid-range offering – one with great design, decent specs, no-nonsense UI, and, above all, a very tempting price tag....

OnePlus X

 

The OnePlus X is stunning to look at, clad in glass and metal with a colorful AMOLED display. Not bad for just $250 unlocked with no contract or monthly payments. The OnePlus X is basically the 2014 OnePlus One in a new casing with a smaller 5" screen....

Fantastic looks and materials for the price. Pleasing full HD AMOLED display. Low price

Unabashed iPhone 5 clone, lean selection of 4G LTE bands, single band WiFi and no NFC

The OnePlus X faces competition not only from the OnePlus 2 (just $70 more) but the very likeable and good Moto G 3rd edition. There are of course other budget choices like the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (not quite as pretty but more LTE bands and a...
