iHub Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of OnePlus products in Nepal, has undertaken huge price drop on OnePlus X in Nepal. The OnePlus X gets a new pricing of Rs. 21,700 and that is Rs. 7,000 lesser than its previous price tag. Well, that’s what we would like to call a massive price drop.
Should you buy the discounted OnePlus X?
The same question if asked before this price cut would be a hard one to answer. But now with this new pricing, the OnePlus X is totally worth all your money. The 5inch screen phone comes with Full HD AMOLED display whereas most of the phones in this price range will ask you to settle with just an HD LCD display. Plus, the smaller dimension phone gives a good one hand usability. The phone is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 both on the front and the back and there’s metal frame along the edges. Under the hood, the OnePlus X is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. If you don’t know, it’s the same configuration as in Sony Xperia Z3. So, the phone is arguably a powerful one. Though the device boots on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, it is upgradeable to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The phone’s 16GB inbuilt storage might sound a little short when many devices these days are offering 32GB. But hey, the storage is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card in its hybrid SIM tray. The cameras are well just of average performance as that’s what our review says but now in this price range, the 13MP unit on the back and 8 MP on the front sound competitive enough. The only considerable downside is its inclusion of 2525mAh battery that doesn’t give an outstanding battery life.

OnePlus, the brand that offers premium phones in budget pricing, is getting life to that statement even in the market of Nepal. With this price cut, OnePlus X is hands down one of the best phones to buy in the price range of around 20k. I believe it won’t be out of place to mention, this phone heats up a bit while gaming and while using continuously for a long time.
