The OnePlus X was released exactly a year ago with an exquisite design, being built from fire-baked Ceramic or Onyx black glass. Currently, it can be purchased from OnePlus’ website, for the price of $239, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but you can upgrade it to 6.0.1 Marshmallow. On top of it runs OxygenOS, which was updated to version 3.14 and it comes with the November security patch that contains bug fixes and security improvements.
The Chinese manufacturer has started rolling out OxygenOS 3.14 based on Marshmallow, which will reach all users in the next days. Unfortunately, there are no new features, only general bug fixes and OnePlus has included some auto-brightness optimization, but if you notice new bugs, you should report them to the developers, so they can fix them on a future update. It’s important to help OnePlus by providing feedback on what you think it should be fixed, because it will be in your advantage and you will benefit from a smoother user experience.
The OnePlus X has a nice design and a body that measures 140 x 69 x 6.9 mm. It sports a 5-inch AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution and it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor that’s backed by an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM and it has an internal memory of 16GB, which can be expanded with a microSD card. On its back, it has a 13MP camera with phase detection autofocus and LED flash, while the front camera supports a resolution of 8MP. The battery is pretty small, of only 2525 mAh, and it’s not removable.
