2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Modern looks with curved edges, thinner bezels and a notch
  • Quite compact as well - and fairly easy to use one-handed
  • Glamorous, jazzy glass back design - you will like it if you enjoy a bit of bling in life
  • Responsive face unlock
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back though is a bit finicky
  • While the design aesthetics are a plus, the placement of the control buttons is a little odd, with all three buttons (two for controlling volume and one for turning the phone off) on the right side of the device - this takes some time getting used to

Display

  • Decent display with good brightness levels

Software

  • The Android UI is close to stock, and keeps things nice and simple

Performance

  • On the slow side, with a ultra-budget Helio A22 powering it - opening apps takes 4-5 seconds - and games are mostly unusable (except the simple ones) - there are certainly other smartphones in this price bracket which perform much better

Camera

  • Decent front camera, with a useful AI beauty mode
  • Average rear camera - takes decent shots in daylight, but image quality drops rapidly with light

Battery

  • Decent battery life - the 3020mAh battery will give you a day of use with moderate usage

Verdict

  • Overall, the X1 Notch is a decent phone with good looks, but is let down by it's performance
