The OnePlus X is a budget phone which delivers the best specifications for its price range. When everyone thought that OnePlus couldn’t release a cheaper phone than the OnePlus One and OnePlus Two, the OnePlus X amazed the media.
For just $249.00, the phone comes with a Full HD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Dual SIM capabilities, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset which consists of a quad-core CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. It has 3 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal storage expendable up to 128 GB via microSD card, 13 MP main camera and 8 MP front camera. The battery is no slouch either coming at 2525 mAh. Not bad for that kind of price tag.
Sometimes, a phone that good for a price that low is too good to be true. And those users who might be suffering from low FPS issues while video recording on low light might think so. A few users have reported this specific issue with their phones. For some reason, the OnePlus X starts slowing down when recording video in low light.
The recorded video looks laggy and for most users is not worth watching. Some think the OnePlus X hardware is not powerful enough and some think it is a software problem. Senior member Loureiro announced that it was a software problem and it could be fixed. He has released a patch which fixes the low performance problem of the rear and front camera of the OnePlus X.

You need to download the patch on your phone, boot into recovery mode and flash the file. Then reboot your phone. Then you will be able to record 1080p videos at night without having to worry about low FPS or degrading performance.
