Hands-on: OnePlus X and custom cases [VIDEO]

Hot off of OnePlus X announcement where we learned specs, pricing, and availability, if you were even thinking about plopping down your hard-earned money on the phone — no matter how affordable — you’re probably going to want a closer look. We get it. Lucky for you we have a hands-on with the newly announced OnePlus X

More than just a quick hands-on, Tony not only gives you the full OnePlus X spiel, but he sprinkles some of his early first impressions of the phone having already spent a good few hours playing around with it. Here’s the video followed by what he felt were the biggest pros and cons of the OnePlus X.

The Good
-Only $250
-High-end build quality
-Only $250
-Feels solid in hand
-Only $250
-Camera isn’t bad (not sure about low light)
-Only $250
-Only $250
-OxygenOS but very little bloat
-Only $250
-Free TPU case
-Only $250

The Bad
-Still no NFC
-No Wireless Charging
-No fast charging
-No USB C (not a biggie)
-No fingerprint sensor
-Invite-only for a month
-WiFi a/b/g/n — but no ac

Also shown off during the event were a few of OnePlus’ all new cases. Unlike the OnePlus 2, the back of the OnePlus X isn’t removable. That’s why OnePlus decided to give it its own line of cases. They come in a variety of materials and finishes, each with their own pricing. The wood backs will retail for $25, while the sandstone back comes in at $20, and the silicone at $15.

That’s not to say the OnePlus X doesn’t offer any protection out of the box. Inside you’ll find the phone comes with its own clear TPU case. Nothing too major, but a nice touch none-the-less. Check out our gallery down below for a more thorough look at the OnePlus X as well as those cases we just told you about.
