At $250, The One Plus X is the Cheapest High End Phone That is Hard To Buy

At $250, we can agree that, its only OnePlus Global, and perhaps Google with its shiny, new, Nexus 5X, at $380, that can produce a phone that rival the iPhone and the Galaxy S device, with Design and Spec of OnePlus X. 
The aesthetic quality is normally found in a well established Tech brand Companies likes Google, Apple and Samsung, and certainly not from China. Interestingly it is from China. 

Headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, The Company's founders, former Oppo vice president Pete Lau and Carl Pei, main goal was to design a smartphone that would balance high-end quality with a lower price than other phones in its class, believing that users would "never settle" for the lower-quality devices produced by other companies. 

The OnePlus X At 140 x 69 x 6.9mm, compared to OnePlus 2 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85mm and the OnePlus One 152.9 x 75.9 x 8.9mm. It is the smallest and slimmest smartphone within the OnePlus range. 

The metal frame surrounding the body, composed of a beautiful brushed anodized aluminum with chamfered edges, features intricate etchings created with the same techniques as fine jewelry that dazzle as they move in the light. Not forgetting to balance pure aesthetics with utilitarian design, the OnePlus X screen is created with strengthened, scratch-resistant glass that will withstand the test of time and everyday use.

“If you look at the specs, they are still pretty powerful specs,” But we have come to a time where incremental increase in clock speed doesn’t add to the user experience as much as a better camera, or much better build quality, or better design does.” said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

The OnePlus X comes in two exquisite design, built from fire-baked Ceramic or Onyx Black Glass. The OnePlus X celebrates a love story of aesthetics and a unique, premium material: zirconia ceramic. Designing technology with ceramics has been attempted – but never before mastered like this. Cultivating a new level of craftsmanship and artisanal luxury in smartphone design

The Onyx comes in black glass and a metal bezel, weighing 138g, thus making it the lightest One Plus Smartphone. The Limited Edition Ceramic model, with just 10,000 up for grab, weighs 160g, which is still lighter than the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus One

The OnePlus X features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with Adreno 330 graphics, supported by 3GB of RAM. Though the OnePlus is slightly higher with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB or 4GB of RAM.

OnePlus X has 2525mAh battery power, meaning the new smartphone might not last quite as long as the other android flagship high end phones currently, 
OnePlus X has 16GB of internal memory,  with microSD support for storage expansion up to 128GB, something that is rear in 2015.  The company's other previous models, OnePlus 2 or OnePlusOne offers no microSD expansion.

Alert Slider 
Alert Slider is a simple and intuitive solution. With three settings, you can choose to receive all notifications, priority-only, or no notifications without having to turn on your screen.

The Alert Slider is fashioned with a ridged mesh cut for excellent grip, so you’ll always have full control over your notifications wherever you go. Drown out the noise, but without missing a thing.

Built from the most advanced sensors, the OnePlus X camera with autofocus is blazingly fast – designed for high-quality photos whenever and wherever you are. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture and 0.2-second autofocus. There are several functions on board, including HDR and Clear Image, while the 8-megapixel front camera has Beauty Mode to deliver pretty selfies.

The OnePlus X runs OxygenOS 2, developed on Android 5.1.1. an OS that looks and feels like Google’s version of Android with Google apps but is built by OnePlus, the OS powers the OnePlus 2. That means user experience is the same on both phones

Draw backs
The phone can only be purchased through an invite-based ordering system, which kind of redefine frustration. But then, if you have followed the company's  phone release since 2014, you should be use to that by now.

The OnePlus X doesn't come with a fingerprint scanner or USB Type-C.

The OnePlus X has a 5-inch Full HD display, which means a pixel density of 441ppi. It also means the new device has the smallest display of the OnePlus crew.
