Comio has recently launched X1 Note in India for a price tag of Rs 9999. The phone should compete with the likes of RealMe 1, Redmi Note 5, and Redmi 5. We have tested this device for quite a while and wasting no time let’s go straight into the review.
Comio X1 Note is one of the best-looking smartphones at this price range. The glossy design on the back is striking enough to catch the eyeballs. The aesthetics are well maintained and feels very light compared to the rivals. 18:9 aspect ratio continues the 2018 trend which gives the smartphone a modern look and feel. The back is made of plastic which degrades the build quality.
The smartphone from Comio sports a 6-Inch 1080P display without any glass protection. The display quality is just average which tend to be on the cooler side.
The device is loaded with a MediaTek MT8735 Quad-core processor with Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. The chipset is nowhere near to the competition and the performance is below par. The browsing performance was sluggish and watching YouTube videos was quite difficult. It comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 Gigs of storage which can be expandable via MicroSD card. The fingerprint sensor on the back worked fine but face recognition didn’t do well as expected.
The user experience on X1 Note was Okish which has Android Oreo 8.0. The company mentioned it as a stock Android but we did find some bloatware and customized skin on top.
The X1 Note from Comio sports a dual camera setup 13+5 megapixel with LED flash and 8-megapixel selfie camera. The rear camera performs well in certain conditions but struggles in low light. The bokeh mode is decent enough to share on your social media.
The battery is not certainly a selling point of this phone which houses a 2900 mAh battery. The device can last for 4-5 hours on continuous usage.
Comio X1 Note is priced at Rs 9999 and available on all major platforms.
