Millennials or not, we all want a phone which is an all in one package. Most of the popular affordable options these days are restricted to online retail shelves, but once in a while, we do come across a complete package that strikes just the right balance of features and affordability and is also available at actual stores.
Mobiistar, a renowned Vietnamese brand, has been swiftly making inroads in India, thanks to its exciting value for money offerings. The latest from the brand is X1 Notch that looks fabulous and employs powerful hardware, and that too at a very reasonable price. If you prefer buying offline, here’s why you shouldn’t miss this one:
1. Notched Beauty with Trendy Looks
Mobiistar has tried to pass on the latest design trends with the X1 Notch. As the name suggests, the 5.7-inch HD+ display has a notch at the top. Thanks to the use of 19:9 aspect ratio, the phone is extremely compact and very comfortable to manage – which isn’t something we could say for most affordable phones these days.
The phone comes in three different gorgeous colors options, and the one we love is the gradient shine variant which surely is a head turner.
2. AI Integrated Camera
Let’s now talk about another key highlight of this phone – it’s cameras. The phone has 13MP sensors at both front and rear. If you are a sucker for selfies or would just want to capture the beauty around you, the X1 Notch will do you justice.
What makes a big difference is the smart AI-powered camera software. The camera can detect scenes and subjects accurately and then subtly enhance them for best results in all lighting contions.
There are a bunch of inbuilt filters which you could try to make the photos Insta-ready. Besides, you get features like panorama, HDR and pro mode to tinker the photos to your liking.
3. Snappy Performance
Once you unlock the phone, you are greeted by a stock-like experience with few additional utilitarian apps like the space managing app called Duraspeed. This is Star OS skin running over Android 8.1 Oreo.
Under the hood, the device is powered by MediaTek’s Helio A22 chipset coupled with up to 3GB RAM. The base variant comes with 16GB onboard storage, while the latter will have a storage capacity of 32GB. There is a dedicated expandable storage slot.
So, you could store a large number of songs, images, videos, apps, and more. Apps open quickly, multitasking is perfectly smooth, and you can also indulge with all your favorite games.
4. Face Unlock
As for biometric security, you can conveniently unlock Mobiistar X1 Notch with a glance, and this works reliably well even in dark ambiance. The phone automatically detects lowlight conditions and turns up screen light to capture your Face data.
Besides, you have the fingerprint scanner at the back that is easily accessible and quite fast.
5. Dedicated Card Slot
The Mobiistar X1 Dual also has a dedicated card slot, which is to say that you won’t have to choose between using two SIM cards and one SIM and one MicroSD card. You can freely add a microSD card to expand your storage by up to 256GB.
Moreover, the phone supports Dual SIM Dual VoLTE, and you can use 2 Jio SIMs or any other 4G VoLTE supported SIM cards simultaneously.
6. Available at your Nearest Stores
Last but not least, you could grab one of these from the nearest offline store. Yes, e-commerce has grown leaps and bounds, but many consumers still want to hold and try phones for themselves before they go ahead and only buy them from trusted brick and mortar stores.
This is especially true for tier-2 and tier-3 cities where online platforms still don’t have a serviceable network.
7. Affordable price and exciting launch offers
The Mobiistar X1 Notch price in India starts at INR 8,499 for the 2GB RAM variant. The 3GB RAM, 32GB storage option costs 9,499. The price is pretty decent from an offline perspective, considering the feature set. Besides Mobiistar has bundled some attractive offers to further reduce the effective price.
Reliance Jio is offering Rs 2,200 cashback valid on Rs 198 and Rs 299 recharge plan. Additionally, you could also avail the Gaana 60 Days ad-free HD streaming offer with the Mobiistar X1 Notch.
Why Mobiistar X1 Notch is an Exciting Affordable Phone
The Mobiistar X1 Notch covers all basics and exudes that premium feel. You get a classy design, amazing camera performance, powerful performance, and long-lasting battery. And the fact that it isn’t pricey helps too!
