XTOUCH-X-Smartphone-Front

XTouch X Smartphone is mid-range smartphone targeted towards students and low budget income people. People can also buy the smartphone for AED699 with wireless headset SH01.

Body & Design

XTouch X Smartphone has 156.6 x 71.3 x 9.2 mm in with a streamlined body and shining finish with 2.8D curved edges, slim bezel and metal frame. The IPS HD+ display screen with 18:9 aspect ratio stretches from top to bottom and completely widens the front vision. It weighs 195 grams with the battery. The product I have received is a shiny black colour so it is a fingerprint magnet. It is better to use the transparent cover provided with the smartphone. It has Dual SIM capability with one slot can be used to expand your memory (up to 128GB) as the built-in memory is 16 GB. The SIM tray is on the right-hand side of the smartphone. On the left side, we have the volume rockers and power button.  The top side has the 3.5mm headphone jack and the bottom side we have the speaker, MicroUSB input for charging and data transfer and a mic.

The fingerprint button located at the back of the phone enables a quick unlock in only 0.3s. The 8MP back camera built-in SONY chipset with a LED Flash light for low light shots. The rear 8.3 Mp camera gives a 3840 x 2160 size image and the front camera is 5.3 Mp with 3072 x 1728 size image. The front camera is also supported with LED flash. Both the camera has Beauty app-enabled with HDR function. It also has face detection feature. The rear camera has a panoramic record function.

It has MT6737H Quadcore ARM-A53 1.3GHz which provides a resolution of 720 x 1440 with pixel density 282 PPI. It has 2 GB RAM and 16 GB ROM.

The most important feature of the XTouch X smartphone is the Wireless charging function which uses the QI charging technology to charge the smartphone. It has Bluetooth function, Wi-Fi but does not have the NFC option.

Review & Conclusion on XTouch X Smartphone

XTouch X Smartphone is value for money smart device which has wireless charging function which normally would find it on the Hi-end smartphones. The screen size is big and 2.8 curved glass gives a rich look compared to the price. The body is sturdy and metal frame makes it strong and curved edges can avoid damages from sudden drop up to a certain point.

Clicked-with-HDR-function

Clicked-with-HDR-function

The camera function is considered an important element in the purchase of the smartphone. XTouch X rear 8.3 Mp F/2.2 camera fair good in the broad daylight but did not appeal to me in room light condition as the image has lot of noise which I could reduce with beauty function but didn’t look genuine. Same I felt for the Selfie front 5.3Mp F/2.2 camera.  On HDR mode on the rear camera got a better image in room light but as mentioned while clicking, needs to be stable and hold for 2-3 secs for a clear shot. The screen touch response for focus on the subject was average.

In gaming, I have loaded and played Asphalt Nitro Demo and the graphics were good without any jitters or any lag and also the smartphone didn’t heat up.

The response between the apps in opening and closing was pretty good. On the multiple Benchmark, the test is performed average mark which you would get on mid-range and lower end smartphone. Also, good thing the temperature of the smartphone during the benchmark was around 39 degrees which great compared other smartphones I have tested.

XTOUCH Wireless Earphones SH01

XTOUCH-Wireless-Earphones.

XTOUCH-Wireless-Earphones.

The XTouch SH01 Wireless Earphones which is a neck support type earbud headset. The product which I have got is the matt grey colour silicon finish with XTouch logo on the left ear. SH01 headset comes as bundled in the special package offer and also if you are buying with the XTouch X smartphone.

The left earpiece has the microUSB charging port and has the multifunctional power button and for calling via Bluetooth and also the volume rockers which also acts as the control for play, stop and change songs. The left earpiece also had the HD mic for communication via Bluetooth. It uses Bluetooth v 4.1 and has a good working time of 4hours on usage and with 150 hours on standby and it can work up to 10 meters range without any obstruction. It takes around 2hours from zero to full charge. It comes along with 3 preset of silicon earbuds.

Review & Conclusion for XTOUCH Wireless Earphones SH01

XTouch in past has given pretty good headsets with their smartphones and maintain their standards of quality with keeping the product in the affordable range. XTouch Wireless Headset SH01 has done the same. The built quality the feel of silicon grey colour matt finish makes the product rich and comparable to any mid-range earphones. Now coming to sound quality, I have tried with my sample of music which varies from Jazz, Country, Electronic and Classical. The quality of sound was good for the value of the product and did not disappoint me.

Calling and music quality was good and the response of the buttons was good. The headset fits perfectly on your ears with the required change of the silicon earbuds.

The XTOUCH Wireless Headset SH01 cannot be charged wireless, it has to be charged with microUSB input and I am not so sure that the earphones are splash and dust proof.

It is a very good product compared to certain brands in the past have provided earphones in a similar price range.

XTOUCH Wireless Charging Power Bank

XTOUCH-Wireless-Charging-Power-Bank.

This is the first time as a known brand to bring a product such as the Wireless Charging Power Bank – WP01 for the UAE market and bundled in the package.  It has 2550 mAH battery with LED light and also shows the battery level. It has 2 USB Type A output, one Micro USB input and One USB Type C input to charge the power bank. It has two LED light indicator, green and Red.

The most important it has Qi charging output marked with a circular disc in the centre.

Review of XTOUCH Wireless Charging Power Bank – WP01

The Power bank charged 100% in half hour, on placing the Xtouch X Smartphone at 20% battery level. It took around 35 mins to fully charge the smartphone.

The built quality of the power bank is average compared to the Smartphone and earphones. It has a semi-matt plastic body with shiny plastic metal frame on the side. The smartphone intends to slide if not kept on a flat surface, wish they would have given a silicon rubber on the top side to make it anti-skid. But for the value as a package at AED819, it is good to deal.

Also, the smartphone has to be placed exactly on the circle of the charger or else it will not charge and the charging indicator gets hidden below the smartphone while charging. Thanks to Qi Charging technology the smartphones charged through the transparent protective cover on the smartphone.

XTouch X Smartphone is not performance oriented device but a good device for people who are interested in Social media, average gaming and broad daylight photography. Wireless Earphones are worth in the deal with the finish and decent sound quality and added to the feature you get Wireless charging power bank. So when you are travelling you can charge your smartphone wireless and also help you, friends, to charge their phone with USB Type A output.

There may be an issue with the 16GB storage space and I would suggest using additional microSD card in dual SIM Card Tray which you use up to 128 GB cards.
