Hey guys.

The OnePlus X (and the OP 2) got cheaper. The OnePlus X is at £189 now (was: £199). The Limited Edition is at £209 (was: £269).

The OP 2 is only price matching Amazon, so I would prefer buying there. And the price for the OP 1 was reduced as well (to £199, but it's out of stock right now).

Great phone, heat

The x looks a stunning phone and good special been eyeing it up for ages

This will be due to the recent OP3 spec leak - which appears to be the phone we all wanted before these two were released. Neither of these rustles my jimmies even at the reduced price, I'll stick with the OPO for now (I'm sure you're all lamenting that fact ).

Got to say now I have android 6.0 on oneplus one I am still pleased with it and not looking to change unless oneplus 3 is something really special but may let them sort out any initial problems first.

What's it competing with in this price range?

I looked at this before but I discounted it then, but I can't remember why.

I'm really bored of my Note 3 and Z3 Compact so keep looking but can't seem to find the right combination yet. I'm torn between buying something mid range now or waiting another 6 months and upping the budget to flagship then (I visit HK and they will be cheaper there).

I don't understand why they make a powerful phone with 3 gig ram but only 16 gig storage. Even with an sd card, not all apps will migrate.

Smashing little phone for the price.

Awesome deal and it supports band 20

I hear performance isn't great on this, and battery stinks

Still using my OnePlus One, never been happier. I would wait until they release OnePlus Three which should have competitive price.

design: 10/10 ( amoled screen )
feel: 10/10 ( premium feel )
software: 5/10 ( a lot of bugs + marshmallow update still pending. company fails promises constantly )
support: 1/10 ( first remote analisys by oneplus technical team and if necessary you have to send phone to china and wait 1 or 2 weeks to get a new one back)

I had the OPO and I was really disappointed with the quality of the sandstone black back cover. No way was it designed to last 24 months and looked a mess after 6 months. OP customers service is a joke, and no way of purchasing a replacement OEM back cover. OP is a false economy in my experience, buy a more expensive phone, made form robust materials, with a decent 2 year warranty (i.e. a Samsung)

Nearly £200 for a reduced price phone that still does not have such modern day features as NFC, Wireless Charging and 802.11ac and people are voting this hot?

The one plus x does not work with 5Ghz wifi bands.

Even worse than expected then.

Cyanogenmod 13 runs like a dream on this. Flash it, get a large microSD card and you've got a really good phone at a great price. Although some may prefer the Moto Play X

​I suspect a lot of people don't have 16 gig of apps

The ceramic is the one to get ... but still a bit too expensive for me.
Good price reduction nevertheless.

£209.00 free 3-5 day delivery for the ceramic which is a stunning bit of kit and worth 210 of anyones cash!

Apart from the Snapdragon 801 and the 3gb of ram the old Galaxy S4 is a hell of a lot cheaper. The S4 has a slower - but still capable - Snapdragon 600 and 1gb less system ram (2gb) but apart from the design the specs are almost identical. The good thing is the S4 supports 4G on all uk bands (i9505 version) and can be picked up for less than £100.

I'm still mourning the loss of my OPO before Christmas (fatal pavement drop). Best phone I've ever owned. Even my GS6 hasn't quite filled the gap. Been meaning to buy a replacement screen/digitiser and give a DIY fix a try.

I bought this phone recently from eglobal central for £163.99 after a voucher code. It replaced my Moto G 2nd Gen. Must say i am very impressed with it.

Fast Hardware and the 16GB is more than fine by me.
Screen is very impressive being AMOLED
Build quality is very impressive, feels very premium

Sure lacks a few features like NFC / Fingerprint Scanner but neither of them do i expect to use and are no big loss. 16GB can be expanded with SD Card.

Also in relation to the WIFI 5Ghz :

That means you can replace a router at home right now with a 5G Wi-Fi … That means you can replace a router at home right now with a 5G Wi-Fi router and existing wireless devices, such as your laptop, iPad, iPhone, and so on, no matter how old, and they will still connect to your network the way they have always worked. To have the devices to work at the speed of 5G Wi-Fi, however, both the clients and the router need to support 5G Wi-Fi.



So again no biggie.

As long as you have no problems with the phone you will be happy......... however if you have a hardware problem you will be in for a world of pain.
Spend a bit more and buy from a proper company with proper european support. Lack of NFC is a deal breaker for me also as I use Google Pay all the time.

The lack of NFC on a phone (and a lot of Chinese phones lack it) has become quite a thing now that NFC Google Pay has finally hit the UK, granted 5G/ac wi-fi is not essential but it is also very useful to have wireless charging...such features should be standard at this cost on a modern phone.

It's a strange phone that falls between two stools IMO. It's not a premium phone but it's not cheap enough to be a budget phone either. Oxygen is interesting but still buggy. Camera is more budget that mid/high end. Glass back is just smash city central.

Overall, I'd take a used S5 over one of these or pay another £10-£20 for a G4, or even get an A9 (if you can live with the battery life).

My poor old OPO had an accident with a jam jar falling from a cupboard in the kitchen. Attempting a DIY repair at the moment 'coz it's hands down the best phone I've ever owned. Skipped the Oneplus 2 due to no NFC and Snapdragon 810 overheating worries but very tempted by the OP3 based on the rumoured specs so far. If it's got Super VOOC, I'm sold!

Depends what you are after i guess. I wanted high end hardware with decent storage and a good quality build and screen. that what this phone provides.

To me NFC is a bit of a gimmick and Finger Print scan is also nothing i would prioritize.

Bottom line to me for the money i paid £164 i couldn't see anything with the build and spec for the price. At £189.99 maybe there is something.

Cracking Phone for the money. Battery life 2 days or 1 day with heavy usage. No NFC so what. Great performance, excellent build quality and excellent screen. No issues whatsoever with the phone with 3 months solid use. Heat!

The ceramic version is showing for me for £209.00 not £219.00 as stated.

I wouldn't bother getting the ceramic version you wont see any benefit except its heavier.
I would suggest installing CM as Oxygen still has bugs.

Its missing 5ghz WiFi support, for a phone at this price that's ridiculous

How does this compare to the Samsung S4? Mine is on it's last legs and I'm looking for something half decent to upgrade it to

Wireless charging is a gimmick. Utterly unnecessary. NFC has some uses and a fingerprint scanner is alright, but wireless charging is just pointless so far.

Why exactly do you need 5ghz support?
