Alcatel, a Chinese company who has launched more than 30 mobiles in the past few years in Pakistan and other countries is set to change the stereotype of premium mobiles; they aim to design the most premium mobile at a much affordable value. Looking at the outlook and design one can never judge the correct price of the mobile and often guess a price higher than it is. However, the performance and certain features will surely reflect its mid ranged value.

Alcatel X1 is one such premium looking mobile with a reasonable price. Some notable Alcatel X1 features include:

  • Qualcomm MSM8929 Snapdragon 415 chipset
  • Android 5.1 lollipop OS
  • Asahi Dragontrail glass
  • 13 MP primary camera with geo-tagging feature
  • Super AMOLED capacitive 5 inches screen
  • 16 GB internal memory with 2 GB RAM

Alcatel X1 Price in Pakistan

Alcatel X1 price varies a bit from store to store since there is no official Alcatel store. Alcatel X1 can easily be purchased from online as well as physical stores all over Pakistan. Some of the stores offer 1 year warranty as well and the warranties can be claimed from the store from which the mobile was purchased. The launch price was around 250 euros but with time the price eventually decreased and now the Alcatel X1 price in Pakistan is between Rs.17,000 and Rs.20,000.

Alcatel X1 Features

The Alcatel X1 is designed much classier as compared to the Alcatel Pop 4 and Pop 4 Plus with a gorilla glass back and front and metal trims. However, the glass and non-textured surface makes the mobile difficult to grip and prone to finger prints which makes it look a bit untidy. The back of the mobile has a 3D “X” on it known as the 3D spin effect. The 5 inch screen display can be considered small considering the huge display smartphones available in the market. The audio quality of the mobile is one to look for; with the Wolfson WM8998 audio chip the audio effects get a boost and are much enhanced which allows to have a nice music experience.

The powerful chipset and processor supported by the graphics processor makes the running of the mobile quite smooth and no hanging or lag issues have been reported. However, is heavy games or applications are made to run on the mobile, the mobile performance will experience a slow down after some time of use. Another amazing Alcatel X1 spec is the dual LED flash camera; both the 13 MP back and 5 MP front camera have flash which enhance the images and allows low light imaging as well. The camera is supported by many features like face detection, QR scanner, geo-tagging, Panorama, HDR, beauty and many more to improve image quality and camera experience.

All in all, Alcatel X1 is one impressive mobile with amazing features and design with an amazingly reasonable price tag.
