The Xtouch is Bluboo’s 2015 flagship smartphone, and it was marketed as ‘Probably the best 5inch Android phone so far’. Bluboo has designed one of the better-looking smartphones in the <$200 USD range. The Gorilla Glass 3 front, reflective metal frame and edges, and glossy plastic back come together very well to give the Xtouch a classy look. Construction quality is also very good as the unit can be twisted just marginally.
The Xtouch is advertised as being just 5.5 mm thick. This is only half-true as the edges are slanted, so its true thickness on the center of the smartphone is closer to 7.5 mm. Even so, the Xtouch is thinner than many of its competitors including the Ulefone Paris, Huawei P8 Lite, and Galaxy J5. The dedicated Android buttons below the screen increase the length of the smartphone just slightly.
What’s more, for the money the screen is sufficiently bright and very clear, with a high pixel density of 441ppi. Viewing angles, as ever with IPS tech, are excellent, and colours are vibrant. The left- and right bezels are pleasingly slim, and the screen-to-body ratio is high in this 71×7.5x143mm smartphone.
Bluboo has built into the Xtouch a Smart Audio chip, and speaker grilles are found on the bottom edge rather than rear of the handset, with the result being much better audio quality than we’re used to hearing from cheap Android phones. You can also take advantage of an FM radio when you plug in a pair of speakers, although none is provided in the box. In terms of other buttons and ports everything is where you expect to find it, with a Micro-USB charging port on the bottom, a headphone jack on the top, and power and a volume rocker high up on the right edge. Although the aforementioned SIM tray is plasticky, these buttons are metal and in keeping with the Xtouch’s overall design
