Bluboo managed a great comeback in the market with its new Bluboo Xtouch flagship. The phone features great specs for a price tag of just $179.99. It even comes with a fingerprint sensor on board. Now, in a video, the company has shown that the fingerprint ID on the Xtouch is a fraction of a second faster than the iPhone 6.
In the video, you can see that the user has tried to unlock iPhone 6, OnePlus 2 and the Bluboo Xtouch at the same time. Surprisingly, this cheap smartphone managed to beat both the devices when it comes to unlocking the phone with its home button based fingerprint sensor. The difference is only of a fraction of a second, which wouldn’t matter much in real life, but its still its good to see that a $179 smartphone can compete with these two devices.
As for the other specs, the Bluboo XTouch comes with a compact 5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D glass and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. In fact, in a video we had seen that the phone survived under stressful conditions. Under the hood, there’s the MT6753 octa-core chip along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Even the MicroSD slot is unique, since it can take two SIM cards as well as an MicroSD card at the same time.
The rear camera is the Sony IMX214 13MP sensor while up front, you get an 8MP shooter. There’s a 3050mAh battery on board powering these specs. As for software, the phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out of the box. The back cover of the device is also unique owing to its polygonal glossy texture, plus its printed using a 3D printer!
Overall a great value for money device. With great specs and fingerprint ID all for just $179.99, the XTouch turns out to be steal at this price.
