Obviously the pricing varies by region and retailer so we’ll give a couple of examples. The Lenovo Vibe P1 launched with US pricing from $279. It also recently launched in India with a price of Rs. 15,999. The OnePlus X Onyx version launched at $249, and in India it’s priced at Rs. 16,999.
It’s worth pointing out that these are both dual SIM handsets. Also the OnePlus X comes in a standard Onyx or limited edition Ceramic variant, which has a higher price. We’ve focused here on specs, but buyers may also want to consider the various features of these phones, design preferences, and after sales service. As far as specs are concerned there are some real swings and roundabouts.
The Lenovo Vibe P1 benefits from an octa-core processor, has a larger display, more inbuilt storage, dual LED flash, and a significantly larger battery capacity. However, the display of the OnePlus X has higher ppi (because of it’s smaller size), and there’s a faster processor, more RAM, and a higher-megapixel front-facing snapper. It’s also the more compact and the lighter of the two. Prospective purchasers will therefore need to think about the aspects of a smartphone that are most important to them when making a choice.
