Love seeing competition in the cheap phone space

Just days after OnePlus invited the world it its London event on October 29 to release its upcoming smartphone, its next device hasshown up on Oppomart. The retailer specializes in shipping Chinese-made smartphones to markets where they’re not currently available, with devices from the likes of Xiaomi, Meizu, Oppo and ZTE all available. The OnePlus X is listed at just $249, making it far more affordable than the OnePlus 2 and — if the listed specs are accurate — far better value for money.

Although you can’t order it yet, the OnePlus X placeholder page does reveal some of the expected specifications. They include the following:

  • 5-inch full HD screen (1920 x 1080)
  • 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 13MP Sony camera
  • 8MP front camera
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB/64GB Storage
  • 2450mAh battery
  • Global LTE support
The OnePlus X, by the sound of things, is shaping up to be a follow-on from the OnePlus One. It looks like it’ll have similar specs, a similar price, but a different design.

I like Snapdragon 801 enough but I don't like 2450 mAh to power a "5 FHD display. Anything with 1080p should have a bare minimum 3,000 mAh even at "5 or less. At 2450 mAh, that is only efficient to power a "5 HD display. Sony nailed the battery capacity range with their Xperia Z Compact series with 720p displays. A Nexus 5 is the perfect example of not enough juice to power 1080p.

I prefer the size but no thanks. Shame because OPO had amazing battery life. I'd rather get the Xiaomi Mi 4c instead. Good size, slower clocked but newer 808, 3000+ mAh, and cheaper (sub-$220). Huawei's Honor series is also quite excellent in value. Xiaomi, Huawei, and Lenovo are still the Chinese masters for smaller, cheaper phones. ASUS and Meizu are also quite excellent in value too.

5" FHD screen, 64GB storage, 3GB RAM. This is all exactly what I want in a phone.

But unless the battery is removable, the 2450 mAh capacity ruins it.
