Our first photos from the OnePlus X and its 13MP camera

Our first photos from the OnePlus X and its 13MP camera
We have an OnePlus X in the office. Yes, we managed to get one after enduring the company's frustrating invite system and struggling with its purchasing process. As a matter of fact, we've been test-driving the phone for about a week now, subjecting it to our usual set of tests an benchmarks. That's why we were able to give you a solid clue as to what the OnePlus X battery life is like. Hint: it's not all that impressive.

But who knows, perhaps the camera on the thing will please us more than its battery life. Is that the case? Well, you'll know once we're done with our in-depth OnePlus X review, which is coming in the near future. What we can share with you today, however, is this gallery of image samples. Below you'll find a set of photos taken with the OnePlus X – unmodified, in their full resolution, coming straight from the phone's camera folder. 

Yes, we know – the quality of the photos is not jaw-dropping by any means. But we never expected it to be. After all, let us not forget that a 250-dollar phone and its 13MP camera were used to capture them, not a flagship costing over twice as much. That said, we're inviting you to take a look at our OnePlus X photos, and if you're happy (or not) with what your eyes can see, do let us know in the comments below!

For a high price tag, yeah unacceptable... But as such mid-rangw price tag, it's fine -- wouldn't expect top-notch here.

I just waited for the cat to load. Just zoom in to the fur and you can already judge the sharpness. Now I want to know what sensor they're using on one plus x.

Mediocre quality at best... But I know a future update can solve things.

For me this is perfectly satisfying quality, it doesn't match current leaders and it will be crushed by Lumias but if I'd have this phone I would be completely happy with this camera.

I think the pictures are better than iphone6s. Not on par with s6 and xperia z5 but better color reproduction than apple's.

All of pa's camera samples lately have loading issues. I have good internet connection so it must be with the coding.
