Android N Unofficially Lands on OnePlus X
The OnePlus X is a compact handset with a budget-friendly price. Its OnePlus’s the third handset. It’s a beautiful looking phone with Glass Back/Ceramic (not available easily). OnePlus made only 10,000 units with the ceramic back. It’s beautiful and it supports a good hardware also, featuring a 5.0″ 1080p AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 801 CPU with 3GB of RAM, and the ability to use two SIMs, or one SIM plus a microSD card. The camera is 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and the front camera takes photos at 8MP with f/2.4 aperture. The battery is 2525mAh, and this little beast got working Android N build VIA CM14.
As you all know CM14 is under development and the codes are available on their Github pages. So, an Indian Developer Sarthak Narang compiled a working Beta of Android N for OnePlus X.
The ROM Boots perfectly and its also working fine, I am using it as my daily driver from past 2 weeks, and I didn’t encounter any major issues. There are some lags and frame drops while gaming sometimes….but who cares its Android N so soon!!! (Lags occur sometimes, but mostly its very smooth).

I would say the ROM is Pretty good as of now, and the best part is the Users of Oneplus X got it very soon (it’s stable too *kindof*). It will get more Stable in Future and maybe we get a Cyanogenmod’s Signature Theme Engine… who knows…Till then try this ROM out you will not be disappointed.
Have a Nice Day.
