While there are boundless smartphones in the price range of X1, this model from Neffos rises above the crowd with its eclectic choice of finishing and clever features incorporated in this mid-tier device. Before we go and hand the best smartphone title, the X1 does have its flaws which can easily be ignored due to its price versus build comparison. The phone sets itself apart from the nameless many in showcases across Low Yat’s ground floor, with its dual-curved metallic back cover and striking display. When holding , it gives off a very natural fit into your palm without any chance of slipping, a major plus for a klutz like me.
Worth Its Weight
Based on the specifications you choose, the device slides into an entry-level to mid-range spectrum, depending on which variation you’d go for. My suggestion would be to splurge on the 3GB RAM so you can have that bit more processing power and being able to just to do more with the X1. Overall the X1 is more than capable of running through your usual social media apps, YouTube and many others without any problems.
The X1 comes with a Sony IMX258 sensor with 13-megapixels, making it an above average camera in a very affordable price. Night-time shooting is a lot better as it can capture more light while the front-facing camera comes with a Beautify option. Now you can fool your Instagram followers into thinking you have flawless skin and that you’re exceptionally good-looking when it fact you suffer from a lack of acceptance from society (I may be talking about myself in this case).
Easy Unlocking Process
The fingerprint scanner on the X1 is located at its back, making unlocking the device a natural and extremely easy process. Also, did I forget to mention that it unlocks in an instant?! One of the key selling point for the phone.
A Fan of the Fruit?
The X1 comes with a mute button located on the left side of the device, much like a popular smartphone that has been doing that since its inception.
All That Display
At 5″ the display on the Neffos X1 is rather exemplary, colours are vivid, strikingly detailed and picture reproduction are natural without artificial enhancement. A serious consideration when choosing a phone.
