One Plus X Lacks Important Frequences in the USA

    This is utterly tragic. The OnePlus X is my dream phone (iPhone6-sized iPhone 5 running Android... even the older processor shouldn't matter much since they optimized the OS). But lack of proper LTE has crippled its chances in the US. When cheaper phones than this support full 4G LTE bands, this is a really frustrating omission.

    I would gladly pay $500 for this phone with an 808, USB-C, and real 4G LTE support. I can get buy without NFC, but I cannot get by without 4G.

    What is even more ridiculous, is that they are refusing to add the bands for the US! Never Settle? Yeah right! http://m.pocketnow.com/2015/11/05/oneplus-x-us-lte-bands-missing

    And I hope it does because I advocated for OnePlus so much. Then they let over 40% of Americans who have ATT and around 15% of Americans with T-Mobile to rot. Inexcusable!

    I wouldn't even bother with them They clearly don't care about their customers in the US.

    Yes, but without being in the US they would have never gain the success they have had. Same with movies and music. I feel used.

    OPX isn't meant to be a hit in the US hence they didin't enable the necessary frequencies, they clearly planned it for their expansion to the EU and Asia. Why do you guys keep raging about it?

    You guys know that there is a whole world outside America right??

    Yeah for those in India that can afford it. Lived in India for a time. They may sell out, but it isn't the amount that they could have had with a phone that covered all the US.

    Sounds like your dream phone might be the HTC One A9? Looks like an iPhone running Android 6.0.

    It looks like OP is giving up the American market in favor of "greener" pastures, like India. But, as they say, "the sacred place does not remain empty for long." Letv and Xiaomi are planning to enter the market. ZTE, Huawei, Alcatel, and Asus are already here. If OP dies here, there will be another "startup king" to step in. :)

    If Huawei starts to release phones like the Nexus 6P in the US, they will grow rapidly. Best Android phone I have owned.

    There is really is no other reason to not include those bands other than to try and push people to the OP2 where maybe the margin may be better?

    The margin is most likely a lot better on the Two, so that makes sense.

    But they still didn't tell us the reason why. Cost? Can you only add so many bands on that chip?? Why??

    I don't remember OnePlus last year explaining why they didn't include band 20 for the europeans either.Guess you can only say this so many ways.....

    How does one find out where which bands are used? Where does ATT use band 17 in the US? How do I find out what band my phone is currently running? The post is a bit scary, but hard to find out what it means. I'd hate to buy one and not have it work.
