Key Specs

    1.3 GHz MediaTek 6753 SoC octa-core processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, expandable up to 128 GB, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 5.5-inch IPS Display (1920x1080p), 13 MP camera at back and 8 MP at front with moon light screen flash, 3100 mAh battery

Pros: Build quality, fingerprint sensor, front camera

Cons: Mediocre hardware and battery life

Bottomline: With a good front camera, you can capture wide-angle groufies and selfies with the good amount of details. But having the mediocre hardware, it has acceptable performance and only one day battery backup keeps it behind the rivals.

Another device from the house of Zopo, but it a bit different than usual devices coming to the market now. The newest addition Flash X Plus smartphones will compete with the already established devices in the segment.

Good to hold

While holding the phone in hands, it feels good as it gets the metal finish at the back and the front 5.5-inch screen is covered by glass. With the dated design, it looks similar to many Chinese competitors. Despite having the large screen, it fits easily in one hand and offers good grip. The fingerprint sensor is placed below the screen and is flanked by capacitive Back and Overview buttons which light up with the screen. The fingerprint sensor is quick and accurate.

The full-HD has good brightness level and wide viewing angles. It produces good colors and you can tweak as per your taste. One can enjoy movies and play various games on it.

Decent performer

The mobile packs MediaTek 6753 SoC octa-core processor clocking at 1.3GHz, which is quite dated. And new devices in the similar price range holding latest processors to meet current market needs. Backed by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage and expandable up to 128 GB. Running on the stock Android Marshmallow, the phone lets you enjoy games and productivity apps. I played some of the games like Asphalt 8 and WWE, I didn’t find any performance lag. But as the phone has dated processor, I see a little lag while running 4-5 apps at the background and switching between them.

The phone comes with gestures controls including a double-tap to wake the screen, or drawing alphabets to launch specific apps. You can perform actions like scrolling through the gallery by waving your hand over the phone.

Using the phone for more than three weeks, I noticed that the call volume is low. I wasn’t able to hear another person when in the crowd or traveling.

Acceptable camera performance

It has 13 MP camera at the rear and 8 MP at the front. The rear camera captures decent images but in daylight shots, colors were dull however using HDR mode, results were better. The low light images come with noise and compromised with details.

Front 8 MP camera comes with wide 90-degree angle lens enabling to click groufies with more members. In good lighting conditions, selfies come with good details. In the low light conditions, the screen can work as selfie flash to click a decent photo even in dim light conditions.

The camera app is bare basic with the function like Panorama and HDR. Using the gesture, you can control the camera.

The battery

Zopo Flash X Plus has 3100mAh battery which looks fine to have, but it last only for a day, at the end of the day you have to plug in the charger. In our video loop test, it lasted for 6 hours 59 minutes, playing video over wi-fi on full brightness and volume.
