The OnePlus X is a Chinese smartphone in every way -- it handles all the basic functions you need really well, but at a price that is far cheaper and far more competitive than offerings from bigger companies. The third smartphone launched by OnePlus, this is a budget phone with intermediate level specs.
This particular phone also turns out to be a way for the CHinese startup to experiment with the use of premium build materials. These are seen in the crafting of the onyx black glass OnePlus X, while there is also a limited edition ceramic version.
This phone is reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, although it costs a lot less than those particular phones did when they came out.
At $250, the OnePlus X is one smartphone that you can definitely describe as a steal.
