    Excellent results for the OnePlus X. Even though the video performance was relatively poor I don’t think mobile phones are generally the best for viewing videos, tablets and laptops are far better viewing options. Just bought the Oneplus X but it will be for day to day business, taking pics, webrowsing, whatsapp and facebook and the occasional games but nothing else. I can use an ipad for videos

        Sure will do. An OTA has just been released by One Plus to rectify som of the early bugs noticed in the One Plus x so hopefully that will improve any shortcomings

      That’s awful to see OPX, after getting updated to 2.1.2 yesterday shows a perceptible deteriorate in the battery life. Before that, it’s battery used to persist nearly 6-7 hours and after the update I could hardly manage to get 4-5 hours. It’s OS thing which makes the battery life worse.
