The most remarkable thing about Oneplus x is the way it looks. Oneplus x has a metal frame and glass/ceramic finish which make it look more premium than mi4 (which also has a metal frame but plastic back panel). If you’re seriously considering the OnePlus X, the design is probably one of the top reason.
