The OnePlus X is the only budget smartphone that features a Full HD AMOLED panel 1080x1920 display. The AMOLED allows for very deep and true blacks which are very noticeable. The contrast is also very high and colors are very saturated on the display. However, if you are outside a lot, alternatives like the Nexus 5X or iPhone SE may give a better viewing experience under broad daylight with its IPS LCD display screen.Apple is well known for its luxurious and stylish design of the phone. The aluminum made iPhone SEdespite using the previous iPhone 5 frame still delivers a beautiful look especially in new colors such asRose Gold. If you prefer Android phone, the OnePlus X which is made of glass with metal frame that has micro cuts also gives a very premium look and feel. If you do not like plastic, you can skip theNexus 5X. Other phones such as Huawei P8 lite has a full metallic body but plastic on the side.

 

Clearly, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 stood out among its competitors in terms of price. The device not only has the lowest price among the budget phones but also has one of the best specifications in this relative comparison.

If you want large memory, OnePlus X clearly stood out as the top choice. The device has 3GB of ram with an expandable storage slot of 128GB. If you are looking for high storage space, the iPhone SE is certainly very limited and costly in this aspect.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 has the longest battery life in relation to other devices at 3060 maH.

We have narrowed down to the iPhone SE and Nexus 5X since their hardware came from the more popular higher end flagship models, the iPhone 6 and Nexus 6P respectively. Apparently, the Nexus 5Xdid better in outdoors and selfies while the iPhone SE outperformed in close ups, low light and night time. When looking at the price together, the Nexus 5X is the clear winner.

There's no single phone which is a clear winner in all areas but OnePlus X did fairly well in several including memory and display aspect. If you are looking for premium design look and feel with good camera, the iPhone SE is highly recommended. If you are just strictly looking at price, Xiaomi Redmi beats them all.
