Finally, Bluboo launched their most expected new model Bluboo Xtouch in the Online Stores. The reason behind the expectation of Bluboo Xtouch is its top class features and hardware specifications. Price is $179.99, which is the most unexpected one in this release, as we all know the specifications earlier. We have a special coupon which will reduce the price to $149.99 in the Wednesday offer in the pre-sale from Gearbest. Find the coupon in Price Section.
Bluboo Xtouch is a high range device in specifications but selling at mid range price. This is expected to be the next revolution in the smartphone market in terms of price. Maybe all smartphone companies may need to lower their price hereafter. Let’s have a look into the Bluboo Xtouch.
Design and Build Quality
Bluboo Xtouch looks awesome with shiny metal and glass material combination. It is designed with shiny front side using Radian technology and the back side has a lot of features including the back cover which is made of 3D printing technology with mirror craft. I can say this is the best back cover with its stumbling design. The metal body is copied from iPhone 6 and uses the nano molding technology and metal CNC frame unibody.
It looks think for the eyes with 7.5mm thickness. It is because of the design that made it look like 5.5 mm thickness. The front side has a 5.0-inch screen with 2.5D arc glass. The left side has the sim tray holder which can be identified with the pin hole and the right side has the volume buttons and the Power button. In the bottom, USB port is placed and in the top 3.5 mm headphone jack is located. At the bottom of the screen, a fingerprint reader is located and in the back side, the rear camera is located in the top center with the dual flash light slightly below the camera.
Bluboo in their launching events and in News messages confirmed that they did special efforts for the design part and did a lot of customization to give the comfort while holding in hands. Overall this is the best design when compared to the recent releases.
It has a 5.0-inch screen that stunning display quality. The screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels which have 441 PPI screen density. The display is made with IPS and OGS technology. Some may think that 5 inch is a little less while so many smartphones coming in 5.5-inch screen size, but the advantage in Bluboo Xtouch is the clarity it got due to FHD display quality of 1920 x 1080 pixels in the 5.0-inch screen. The same FHD display will give lesser clarity in 5.5-inch screen.
The visuals are looking fantastic with high clarity because of the sharpness and brightness. The display has 95% NTSC, 175-degree visual angle and 1000: 1 contrast ratio. The viewing angles are wide enough because of the 175-degree visual angle. To protect the screen, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is used with the dynamic display adjustment technique. It enhances the lifetime of the screen and also saving the battery life as it only consumes less power.
After the Design and Display, Bluboo Xtouch continued its domination in the hardware field too. Everything loaded in hardware is the best one that comes under the price of $179.99 (Offer price $149.99). It has 64-bit Octa-core processor that can be clocked up to 1.3 GHz speed. The Graphical processing unit has 64 bit Mali T720 processor with 3 cores. To balance the processors, 3 GB RAM and 32GB ROM added in memory.
All of the above-mentioned configuration are the top level. Octa-core CPU is abundant power for a smartphone. Also with Mali T20 GPU, we can play high-end games without any glitches as it has 3 cores. 32 GB ROM is another good addition, along with the expandable memory up to 64GB.
Android 5.1 OS is loaded in this smartphone. Good News is Bluboo supports third party OS such as CyanogenMod (CM), Flyme, MiUi etc. Xtouch is compatible with all of this third party OS to give the best customization and privacy protection against the stock Android 5.1. While on a delivery of Xtouch, we can only see stock Android. Later we have to install the desired OS package that suits Bluboo Xtouch.
Xtouch has a high-quality camera lens in the rear side. It features Sony IMX214 – 13 MP lens. Dual Flashlight is available with the rear camera to get clear pictures in the dark light. Camera Settings have custom options such as HDR, Smart fill light, slow motion, Night view mode, wide angle etc. to tweak the camera performance to your desired results. The Front camera has 8 MP Omni Vision lens with wide angle and F 2.0 aperture.
Both the front and back cameras are producing high clarity pictures. Don’t forget the price for which you are getting such high configured cameras with 13 MP and 8 MP lens.
This is the most significant part of a smartphone. Bluboo added a 3050 mAh capacity battery and promised one day stand for heavy using. Heavy using for one day is in the sense, playing games, browsing, watching videos etc. for the whole day. It means it can stand more than one day for normal users.
The following is the full list of battery statistics for a fully charged battery – 775 hours on standby, 60 hours of music play, 38 hours of talk time, 14 hours of internet browsing. The most wanted quick charge facility is available in this smartphone. Just 10 minutes of fast charge, provide 1 hour talk time.
Latest 4G connectivity is available. It is the fastest internet connectivity option for a smartphone. Also 2G, 3G and WiFi available for Internet connectivity. GPS and Bluetooth options are also available.
