Truthfully, I do not understand this phone. Unlike other smartphone I review, this one has no one feature to brag about, expect its price. Well, that is exactly what OnePlus tried to do here. Blend in power, beauty and affordability and make a phone people will beg for an invite to buy. Or...
You see, there is no one reason to like this phone. It is definitely not a flagship killer - not even to be compared to the OnePlus 2. In fact, it is the OnePlus One, toned down, recreated, removed off some features, given a new name and sold on the painfully slow invite system.
But that isn’t the point at all. Look at its price. $249. If you had that much money and wanted a new phone, what would you buy? The answer is the OnePlus X. Why? Because it is the best phone for its price. And that is why OnePlus even crafted this phone. It is not a flagship killer, it is the cheap phone that is better than the rest.
Everything aside, I somehow still want to compare this new phone to the OnePlus One:
So the question arises, why should I buy the OnePlus X when I can get the OnePlus One with its huge screen, NFC and 64 GB storage option at the same price without the invite system?
I’m leaving this up to you… you tell me!
