You can buy the OnePlus X in North America today (but only if you have an invite)


If you’re lucky enough to be the owner of a OnePlus X invite, you’ll be happy to know you can now buy one in the United States and Canada. It’s running for $249.99 before taxes, and you do get a pretty decent smartphone for that amount.

In case you missed our hands-on coverage earlier in the year, “decent” means exactly what it is: there aren’t many of the typical “bells and whistles” you’d want in a smartphone. There’s no USB Type-C or fast charging, no WiFi AC, and we still don’t have NFC despite earlier rumors suggesting OnePlus would include it.

But you do get a phone that has flagship-like power thanks to a Snapdragon 801 chipset, bloat-free OxygenOS, and the beauty to rival any smartphone on the market to date. If your budget is locked squarely at $250 then there may not be a better smartphone to get, so once you have your invite (sign up for one here if you haven’t already) be sure to place your order over at their website.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
