Apple iPhone X Alternatives
Apple’s latest flagship device, iPhone X, comes with a number of firsts in awe-inspring features for an iPhone.
Apple’s iPhones are great, but they’re not the only option you have in 2017/18. I’ve used iPhones before, but for the most part, I am Android through and through. For the last year, I have used Google’s Pixel XL and, based on what I know right now, I will probably be using the Pixel 2 XL for the incoming next 12 months.

OnePlus is a Shenzhen-based start-up and producer of smartphones founded in December, 2013.

Of late the company has held open sales of its smartphones too.
