Hi, 

 

I'm maybe looking at getting either of these phones. I don't really want a phablet sized phone and I'm not overly interested in gaming on it. Is there any reason not to get the OnePlus X and spend the extra to get the 2? Apparently it doesn't support some LTE bands but I'm not sure if those are used in NZ. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

Other than the obvious differences (size, battery capacity, SoC, only a 16 GB version), the X has an AMOLED vs LCD, an SD card slot, an 8 MP secondary camera vs 5 MP, microUSB vs USB C, and as you say, one or three less LTE bands depending on whether you're talking about the EU / global or US versions. The US versions do not support LTE in NZ at all, while the EU / global versions of both support it on band 3 only. So very little difference between them worth worrying about, with the X arguably better unless the battery life is an issue – which it could be.

Cheers. I usually leave my phone on the charger overnight. So that's not a problem. I'm also sourcing it from a local shop so if it's not the global version I'd be surprised and can confirm the version with them before I take possession.

The thing is that, according to the GSMArena specifications page, it has US and EU versions, rather than US and Global like the 2. So while I'm pretty sure it'll be the EU version I'd definitely make sure.

 

Oh, a few more things I just noticed / remembered the X misses out on: 4K video recording, optical image stabilisation, laser-assisted auto-focus, and 5 GHz WiFi.

Yeah, I don't really need the best camera money can buy. The 5GHz WiFi would be useful but is definitely not a dealbreaker.

Well well well... Pretty much what I was going to ask.

I'm still in France and was looking at getting OnePlus X to replace my ageing S4.

Did you end up getting one Bealze?

Or would the Nexus 5X be a better choice?

If you can afford it, I totally would go with the Nexus 5X. Since it's a nexus device updates come within weeks of it being released instead of months for most other devices.

Another phone im surprised no one has mentioned is to have a look at a Zenfone 2, Most versions are cheaper than either of the Oneplus options and it does have quite a lot of versions to choose from.

 

I have a Oneplus One and love it so i am a fan of the phones but the Zenfone seems really nice too, at least the 5mins ive played with in stores. If you live near a PBTech they have Zenfones and Oneplus devices that you can actually mess with and see what you think.
