OnePlus X Full Review and Rating

OnePlus X Full Review and Rating – A classy 5-inch handset is what you get, as the OnePlus X. It is surely the first time that we get to see some deviation from the design language in the OnePlus. Yet, the ergonomics and the basic shape stay the same. Though there seems to be some progress but still it used to be evident that you’re holding OnePlus, due to the sandstone back. On the other hand, OnePlus X feels completely new with the touch! The new design has glass in front as well as the back of the handset on the Onyx version. The back is ceramic in the ceramic version.

The phone has a 13 MP primary camera, with flash. The camera is situated on the top left corner of the phone. OnePlus seems to have gone all out with the AMOLED screen. It has an amazing display, both indoors and outdoors. The display has great contrast levels. Also, it has vivid colours. It also sports great viewing angles and the colours remain unaffected unless the user looks at the display at about zero angles. The legibility in sunlight is also good but slightly impaired. The device remains protected with the corning gorilla glass 3. The 2.5D curved glass feels wonderful when being used. There are three capacitive keys below the screen but do not have the backlighting.

The position of the multi – tasking and the back button can be swapped according to the preference of the user. Also, on screen keys can be opted for. Additionally, the physical home button can be used with the on-screen keys. It all depends on the settings. Commands for the capacitive keys can also be set as per choice. The screen can be woken up by the power button or either by double tapping on the screen. The ambient display can be enabled. This makes the screen light up, whenever any notifications are received. This surely saves time and effort. Though, it might get annoying and battery consuming with strings of notifications being received at a time.

Also, there is a proximity wake feature. Whenever your hand is brought close to the device, the screen displays the date, time and notifications. There is also an LED notification light.
