Face off: Lenovo P70 vs OnePlus X

The Lenovo P70 is priced at Rs 13,999 while OnePlus X is available for Rs 16,999.

Almost all smartphones have acquired a reputation for providing great hardware, but terribly poor battery life. The Lenovo P70 is one phone that tries to buck the trend. Priced at Rs 13,999, it has its sights on high performing phones such as the OnePlus X, available for Rs 16,999, which while offering great specs, might not last as long as the P70. Read on to see how the marathon runner and the sprinter do against each other.


The OnePlus X is glass all around, encapsulated by metallic sides. It has thin bezels on the front and a very clean look on the back too, which is dominated by a glass back panel.

The OnePlus X measures 140 x 69 x 6.9 mm, and weighs 138 grams.

The Lenovo P70’s best looks are found on the rear, with its lovely metal back cover which wraps around to the front. The front too is nice looking with very thin bezels. The Lenovo P70 measures 142 x 71.8 x 8.9 mm and weighs 149 grams.

Both of these phones are really nice looking packages, and we can’t pick a winner though the all glass look of the X might impress many.


The Lenovo P70 has a 5 inch HD (720 x 1280) IPS display. The pixel density is superb at 294 ppi.

The OnePlus X has a 5.5 inch HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, and a pixel density of 267 ppi. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The larger and tougher display of the OnePlus X is the winner. Regardless of what kind of screen protection your phone has, we recommend that you invest in a tempered glass protector.

Processor and Memory

The OnePlus X runs a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor which runs with 3 GB of RAM. The internal memory stands at 16 GB to which you can add another 128 GB via a microSD card.

The Lenovo P70 is armed with an octa-core MediaTek 6752 processor which is clocked at 1.7 GHz. The phone has 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, to which you can add another 32 GB via a microSD card.

The Lenovo P70 has an upper mid-range processor, but the OnePlus X runs last year’s flagship from Snapdragon, and it also has 1 extra GB of RAM, along with more storage (combined).


The Lenovo P70 runs Android KitKat, Lenovo’s Vibe UI has some customisations and is fairly easy to use and smooth too. The OnePlus X runs on Android Lollipop with their own Oxygen OS on top, which copies several features from Cyanogen.


The OnePlus X has a 2525 mAh battery while the Lenovo P70 has a 4000 mAh battery. Regardless of the claimed talk time or standby, the huge difference in mAh means that there is only one winner here, the Lenovo P70.


OnePlus X has a 13 megapixel primary camera, with phase detection auto-focus, an aperture of f/2.0, flash, face detection, panorama, geo-tagging, and video recording at 1080p at 30 fps. The front has an 8 megapixel camera for video calling and selfie taking, etc.

The Lenovo P70 too is armed with a 13 megapixel unit with auto-focus, LED flash, HDR, panorama, smile detection, and video recording. The front has a 5 megapixel selfie shooter as well.

Spec for spec, both these phones are similar, and it is difficult to call a winner till a real world test occurs.


The OnePlus X is a dual-SIM device, equipped with 4G, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS), Bluetooth 4.0, and WiFi.

The Lenovo P70 too is a dual-SIM device with 4G, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS (A-GPS), and WiFi.

Wrapping up

The OnePlus X is Rs 3,000 more expensive, but it offers better looks, a better display, faster processing, more storage, the latest operating system, a better selfie camera, but a far poorer battery. The Lenovo is cheaper, and it shows, but the battery is massive, and that might swing the vote for some of you.
