Poll results: Do you like the new OnePlus X?

Poll results: Do you like the new OnePlus X?
When the original One was unveiled, the OnePlus startup positioned it as the best value-for-money handset your cash can buy, and in paper it was indeed so. Fast forward a year and a half, and an invitation system creating long waiting lists, limited geographical availability, plus bugs galore, brought OnePlus back to Earth. The OnePlus 2 successor, while having some unique twists both in terms of design and hardware, is now one of many affordable "flagship killers" coming from China.

The OnePlus X that just got official this morning, is the company's first attempt to diversify its smartphone line, with its external appearance undoubtedly one of the main selling points. The phone will be offered in two versions - glass-and-metal Onyx options, and a limited Ceramic edition, which will be more expensive and only offered in certain markets.

Reaffirming the design chops of the OnePlus X, its 140 x 69 x 6.9 mm dimensions are as good as they come for a 5-incher, so you will be getting a thin and premium midranger with fine specs for $249 when it launches stateside come November 19th. This is why we asked you if you like what you see, as it's not spec'd as well as the One A9, but it's half the price, too. Well, it turns out that out of our 1323 respondents, less than a third are categorically saying "no" to the new OnePlus X - the rest of you either like what you see on paper, or are waiting for the first reviews to trickle down before they form an opinion - this bodes well for OnePlus, and their first foray into the compact phone market niche.

Don't order from this horrible company. Never buy from a manufacturer that makes you beg for an invite to hand over your own money.

It's called marketing gimmick. BTW probably because the OnePlus X is limited in availability, or rather because OnePlus wants to gain more fanboys. *cough*

Good thing the other 90% of phones nowadays are phablets. Some of us like phones we can use with one hand.
