OnePlus X is the Nexus we all wanted

The OnePlus 2 has been surprisingly unsurprising, but the new smartphone from OnePlus sticks to what really shone in the first device that this Chinese maker launched. Impressive price/features ratio.

The design is fantastic, the size is convincing, and all the hardware features (AMOLED!) seem really promising. Even the camera performs on the first impressions, and I’m sure this one will be the star of the show for the upcoming months on that price range.

In fact, this is what many of us wanted from the Nexus family. An unexpensive device with great features that can provide a good experience. I miss the fingerprint or the quick charge options, sure, but I can live without them for that price.

I’m waiting for the reviews, but I think this leaves Moto G and everything around $200-$250 biting the dust. And makes everyone wonder if they really need to spend the $400 the Nexus 5X costs. I’m not sure the official Nexus is worth that now.
