OnePlus X-Review

PHONE July 14, 2016

It is a beautiful mid budget smartphone loaded with all the high end features. OnePlus clearly knows how to attract customers and what are needs of today’s customers. OnePlus came into market with OnePlus One whch was truely a flagship killer. It was brought into the market on invite system. But this time company launched OnePlus X openly in market with no invite system. Oneplus X looks great, but only looks are not enough. So let us review newy launched OnePlus X.

Design of the phone is really appreciable. Black onyx or baked ceramic finish makes it more attractive. It is a very handy device with 5-inch screen size and it onyx version weighs 138g whereas ceramic version weighs 160g. It has a metal frame etched with 17 inch micro cut.According to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, each ceramic back plate takes about a month to craft and the baking process only has a 20 percent yield. i would like to mention it also that you would not even find materials like ceramic on flagships at three times the price.

sim slot

There is a dual nano-SIM card tray that doubles as a microSD card slot if you’re only using one SIM, however this was not available in OnePlus 2. The OnePlus X only comes in a 16 GB version, but memory can be expanded up to 128 GB with a microSD card.

OnePlus X screen

With the OnePlus X, the company is stepping into Samsung’s turf by offering an AMOLED panel. Earlier company used LTPS panels. It however retains their FullHD resolution, but pixel density gets a significant bump at 441ppi. Colours are very bright and punchy to an extent that they look overtly saturated in some instances. OnePlus X also has a screen protector at the front.

OnePlus X is packed with Oxygen OS 2.1.2 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Oxygen OS is a very stock-like ROM but it has plenty of customization options for those who like to modify their Android phones. These include off-screen gesture which is used to operate phone even when it is on standby. This can be done by drawing patterns on screen.

OnePlus X is powered by Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.3 GHz loaded with 3GB RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. Though the performance is far from the best, but is has stable and reliable performance. Moreover, Snapdragon 801 is outdated but still the performance is very good.

camera

OnePlus X features a 13 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and an 8 MP front-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture. The OnePlus X uses a Samsung ISOCELL sensor and Phase Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF), which can focus in 0.2 seconds. However, PDAF struggles in low light more than laser focus which is apparently faster than PDAF. Rear camera is not upro mark and you cannot compare it with OnePlus 2 camera. Front facing camera stuggles to click good pictures in low light.OnePlus X capture picture on 4:3 aspect ratio by default. Sadly, OnePlus X cannot record 4K videos which is major acking point as Qualcomm has provided support with Snapdragon 801.

battery

The OnePlus X has a decent sized battery for a phone of this size and thickness: 2,525 mAh. It’s non-removable, of course, but considering the energy saving properties of AMOLED screens, it manages acceptably. With moderate usage you can make it from breakfast to dinner time, but you’d be lucky to get anything beyond that. Battery takes less than 2 hours 30 minutes to fully charge.

Rating

Overall, OnePlus X is a good phone but camera quality and display quality is not upto mark. Moreover, it is not a flagship killer. It is a decent phone with good looks o decent price. So our final rating will be 4/5.
