Which phones out there offer those things & what the X offers for $250? Yes, I believe there are some but none that I am aware of that offer US friendly LTE bands. For that market (and probably some others) there is a limit of what is offered at the $250 price range.
small screen ,small body , powerful hardware , that's exactly what we need.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2015microSD, up to 128 GB (uses SIM 2 slot) :( It's either or, you can pick between nano sim + microSD, or two sims.
You can pick up a brand new Nexus 6 for $299, sometimes less on sale, so what makes this phone the better option???
Interesting. I am a bit disappointed...but I am not quite sure why. When compared to the Moto G 3rd gen with 16GB and 2GB of RAM - this OnePlus X is $30 more but...
The X has more RAM (2gb vs 3gb)
The X is significantly smaller (11.6mm thick vs 6.9mm...other dimensions favor the X as well)
The X officially supports larger SD card sizes. Yes, the Moto G will support sizes larger than 32GB but not officially. So...this one probably doesn't matter.
The X has a bigger battery (2470 vs 2525).
The X's CPU "should" be better than the Moto G's (410 vs 801).
The X "can" support dual SIMs...but at the cost of the SD card slot. So depending on your needs this might be a bonus or not.
Of course, there are quite a few niceties for the Moto G as well. Historically it should have better support. 6.0 is already officially planned. It supports waaaay more bands. If you don't need or want the extra RAM and internal space you can save even more money (savings of $70 if you get the cheaper one). It has a more vanilla android experience vs Oxygen OS...though the people I know when the OnePlus One have tried both and don't see huge differences. This might be a big one....no waiting list.
Hmmm...I think I just talked myself into getting the X. I am sure the Moto G is a great phone but I cannot get past the extra weight and thickness. I like my phones small.
For those comparing the X to other phones that are similarly priced or cheaper... I am confident there are better phones out there. But most of those just don't have the LTE bands to compete in the US. Shame too as there are some awesome phones out there that will never compete in the US.
Big no for X
waited for so long time just to hear 16GB with stupid hybrid sim slot
AnonD-19153, 29 Oct 2015Put a SD 820, Removable Battery, and a 128gb memory And i would buy it with eyes closed And have it cost 500 dollars? The whole point of this phone is to be great value, which it absolutely is.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2015why they used 2 year old processor 801 now in this phone.. hate to see such a good set with ol... moreThat's not 2 old years processor. Is 2014 flagship processors. Galaxy S5 and OnePlus One has them and those are phones that are behaving excellent.
People forget, that is not about the specs, but the user experience, and how responsive is the phone based on that hardware. My have still has a Nexus5 with even older CPU (SD800) and that phone is "flying" in hand. Very responsive with android Marshmallow on it.
