The OnePlus X is a $199 (launched at $249) unlocked phone from up-and-coming phone manufacturer OnePlus, which isn't a successor to its previous high-end effort the OnePlus 2 but instead starts a new lower-end segment for the company. While it doesn’t boast the higher specs of its brethren, it’s still a solid device with a great price. On the smaller side, the OnePlus X features a 5-inch 1080p display, and the combination metal & glass frame is just under 7mm thin. Inside, the X is rocking a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 13MP camera, and a MicroSD slot.
What the OnePlus X doesn’t have is NFC, USB-C, quick charge, wireless charging, or even higher storage options.
