does this phone have laminated display? i saw in other review there some air gap between display panel and glass
Rayne , 13 Nov 2015not bad!! old processer might be a let down No way to blame processor, as S801 is an excellent processor on many flagship devices like ones from Sony, Samsung HTC etc. Excellent in terms of battery life Sony Z3 Compact is build on S801.
It's luck of optimization from OnePlus make overall experience with X quite poor. Average camera, average battery life, some lags in interface etc. Relatively low price along with great look doesn't mean great user experience. It's only hard work on optimization of everything what phone has, makes one a great device. Luck of optimization will end up in many drawbacks and overall bad user experience.
My Only Concern is the "Quick Charging" I don't understand why OnePlus is not considering this feature, it is the most important feature people needs this moment.
I was considering buying either OnePlus X ($270) and or Letv 1S ($200). I think I'm going to go with the Letv 1S now. I really like the look of the OnePlus X, but I don't think it's worth the extra $70. If the X had fingerprint scanner and Snapdragon 805 and 3000mAh battery then I go for it. But $200 for the Letv 1S with the specs it's got is alot better value.
This is s*ck big time.
54h endurance with very poor web and video time
at 175 nits test screen......
Samsung S5 at 275 nits got 83 endurance
with more than 11 hours at video

You want to ask is the video test is bright or dark video ?
Z3 compact still a better phone! Battery life two times better and better camera. Marshmallow is right on the corner.
64bit apps are still a rarity and the phone will probably become outdated because of performance before it is outdated for being 32bit.
The only app I've seen that is 64bit is the GameCube emulator, but that doesn't even work properly on the galaxy s6.

I even don't think the processor us the AB version of the 801, but an enhanced AA one for faster GPU.
Overall...the Oneplus X is a mixed bag.
"Audio quality disappoints" ...shit happens.
I'll wait for SGS7, may there be SD card slot again...
This phone the step back.
I think the OnePlus tries to lie their customers.
While other companies go ahead issuing the phone with 32 GB ROM and new CPU.
vino41, 14 Nov 2015Galaxy S5 is still the best SD 801 device up to date.This!
In my country, you can get one for 350$ new (not refurbished) but still better then 1+X
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2015you can't make that assumption....amoled is energy efficient technology provided you know how ... moreIt isn't an assumption. Samsung won't sell their best to other companies, so they wind up getting the less efficient ones for their devices. Unless you're looking at a bunch of dark colors, AMOLED will not necessarily be more power frugal than a good LCD
No need of a 64bit soc.
Who cares, snapdragon 801 handles gaming better than snapdragon 615/617 and might even have similar performance to the SD 620 which we haven't seen still.
Atleast future proof for the next 2-3 years.
Good move by one plus.
Hmm... disappointing audio, loudspeaker, camera (M2 Note which is much cheaper, and not in the same price range, have better camera). Which is really important for me. So it only has look.
Chinese skins are bad at optimization. Take a look at some Chinese's phone. They have a monster 4000-5000mah battery but only to manage around 60-70 hour rating.
You can blame the the oxygen os for poor battery life. I have a OPO, it has a good battery with COS 11s and latest 12.1 nightly but bad battery with oxygen os. Besides, most Chinese skins a
Sony having 3 energy efficient phones based on Snapdragon 801 chipsets, Xperia Z2,Z3,Z3 Compact, with 2,3GB rams and 720P,1080P TFT Led displays. Still one plus cant beat nowhere in talktime,video and browsing times with AMOLED displays . Even on Z3+ with same 6.9mm they could place a 2970mah battery on it.
