As has become the standard operating procedure for OEMs when they are about to release a new phone, OnePlus has dropped the price on both the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X on their site. The OnePlus 3, the manufactures next “flagship killer” is expected to be launched next month which means you can pick up a great deal on either of these phones from 2015. Right now the OnePlus 2 is available in Sandstone finish, has 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM and a 13MP rear camera for $299. The 2 has a 5.5″ display and is powered by OnePlus’ own version of Android, OxygenOS. Right now it is still based on Android Lollipop but the Marshmallow update is in final beta testing and should be released soon.
If the OnePlus X is more your style, you can pick it for just $199. This will get you the onyx version of the X that comes with 16GB of storage (expandable via a MicroSD card up to an additional
128GB), 3GB of RAM and a 13MP camera. The OnePlus X is slightly smaller with a 5″ display so if you have been looking for a powerful, smaller device, this could be the ticket. Like the 2, the X is powered by OxygenOS.
Regardless of which device you get, both are excellent and have generally been well received. The only real knock on the OnePlus 2 has been the lack of NFC support (something the X has by-the-way) but otherwise, they have both been solid performers.
