Key features:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU
  • 5-inch, 1080p AMOLED screen
  • Android Lollipop with Oxygen OS
OnePlus is a growing player in the smartphone industry, with a track record for creating super-affordable, but highly specced, smartphones.

The OnePlus X continues this trend, and is one of the most competitively priced smartphones currently on the market. It features similar internal specifications to the firm’s 2014 OnePlus One flagship, but comes with a completely reworked, more premium “Onyx” design.

The design features a cut-glass backplate that sits within a solid-feeling anodised metal frame. This combination makes the OnePlus X feel more like a flagship than a budget handset and is a key selling point for the device.

If looks are your main focus, the OnePlus X is the best affordable smartphone for you.
