OnePlus X Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of OnePlus X at a Glance:-

The OnePlus entered in market with tag line of “Flagship killer” they are providing most of the flagship features in less than half of the price of Tier A brands. Recently they launched OnePlus X a mid range budget Smartphone featuring Snapdragon 801 processor, 13 & 8 MP camera, 5.0 inches AMOLED screen, 16 GB ROM with 128 GB of Ext. Storage support, 3 GB RAM and 2525 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of OnePlus X.

They have made brilliant craftsmanship of Smartphone with metal frame and glass back feel instinctive, back glass is rugged enough to maintain its design and solidity. As we also love its 6.9 mm slim body and 138 grams of light weight although Ceramic variant is slightly heavier (160 grams), the top has the 3.5mm socket and a secondary microphone, the left has the notifications slider, the right side has the power and volume keys and the SIM tray, while bottom has the speaker grille and USB port. There are 2 grilles at the bottom; right grille is not speaker where microphone is placed.

We are happy to see bright and vibrant 5.0 inches AMOLED display having 1080 x 1920 pixels resolutions and 441 ppi display density; the videos are pretty clear from different viewing angles. While taping for accessing the features touch is quite smooth and responsive. Screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which makes it safer from the scratches.
The CPU is soul of any Smartphone and OP X is loaded with Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with clock speed of 2.3 GHz. That makes the smooth flipping when moves from one app to another, although it slow down during heavy operations but most of the task can be operated quite fluidly.
For the photo shooting there is 13 MP rear camera with f/2.2 Aperture and Phase Detection AF (ISOCELL technology). It takes little bit time to access the camera, and we also observe that the colour and sharpness in the photos is pretty decent but the factor that is missing is the details in the pictures, some pictures came out noisy especially indoor photographs and the outdoor photographs looks quite pleasant if you will see them in phone gallery. 
When you find the capacity of the power source you will get 2525 mAh battery, as here is slight heating issue in the phone, and the battery is draining relatively faster while some people are claiming that it improved after the update.
