Mobistar X1 Dual Design and Built
Coming to the built part of the phone; here we get great polycarbonate classy built, with great selfie camera. The device fits perfectly in your hand and while using it on daily basis you will love the built and 2.75D curve display it has. It totally gives you the premium feel and still won’t affect your pocket much.
Starting with the design part; at the front top, we get 13+8 megapixel Camera setup which is the USP of the phone. One camera is a normal camera whereas the other camera is a wide-angle camera which can capture the shot up to 120 degrees. Beside it, we get different sensors, earpiece and Front LED flash.
Coming to the lower side we get a 5.7-inch HD+ Display which is covered with 2.75D curved glass. Nothing about gorilla glass is being mentioned by the brand. The curve glass gently melds in along with the curved sides, thus making it a joy to hold in the hands without any fatigue. In this price, no other brand is offering 2.75D curve edge on the display. Coming little bit down we get on screen capacitive keys as the device supports 18:9 full view display.
Turning the phone to the downside here we get a primary MIC and a micro USB port which supports OTG and no fast charging. Beside it, we get dual Speaker grills out of which right one is having the actual speaker in it.
Coming to the left side of the phone here we get Hybrid tray slot which supports Dual SIM’s or it supports Micro SD Card up to 128GB with one SIM in it.
Turning to the other side we get Volume rockers and power lock key which works quite well on regular usage and also gives your tactile feel while using them.
Further moving to the top side of the phone here we get a single vent for a 3.5mm Audio Jack and nothing much which need to mentioned over here.
Finally coming to the back side of the phone here we get a 13-megapixel camera with a support of Dual Tone LED flash. Below that we get a Mobiistar Branding. The back panel is made up of high-quality plastic with proper gloss finish overall you are going to love the built of the device.
Mobistar X1 Display
Display of Mobiistar X1 Dual comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ Display with a resolution of 1440 X 720. The display gives you the ratio of 18:9. The colors on the display are sharp and playing games look great. While watching a movie on to the phone give immense experience. The Sunlight legibility is also good because of its really great brightness. When we compare the brightness with some other phones like Xiaomi Redmi 5A this one works really well in sunlight legibility.

Viewing Angle is good, and blacks are decent enough. While watching movies from an odd angle won’t affect you in any way. Overall no complaints about the display.
Mobistar X1 Performance
The phone comes with a MediaTek processor which they can improve. But still, for normal users, it will work well. We get MediaTek MTK6737 with a support of Mali T-72 MP2. Out of 32 GB of internal storage, you get about 26 GB free after that you can also expand it to up to 128GB as the phone support Hybrid SIM tray slot.
We get Antutu Score of 36999 and these scores on a budget device are good enough for daily usage. With this price, all that they have given is quite good for any normal person. We also get all the sensor which we get on other devices. No sensor is being removed from the device.
Coming to the gaming part, we can play almost all games, but you need to low down the graphics of the game. I was able to play PUBG at low graphics setting. Asphalt 9 can also be played at low graphics settings. We cannot expect high-end gaming at HD gameplay in this device.
Mobistar X1 Camera
Moving on to the cameras on the Mobiistar X1 Dual, the phone comes with a 13+8-megapixel front-facing camera setup. The photos capture using Mobiistar X1 Dual are quite good in daylight and quite average in low light. Still comparing with any other brand in same price bracket it offers way better image quality and selfie. The best part is that with this device you don’t need any selfie stick with you. The secondary camera which we are getting in Mobiistar X1 Dual is a 120-degree wide angle lens which can capture all by just using your hands.
Now coming to the back side where we get a 13-megapixel camera. The photos come out quite good when we see the pricing on top. The photos clicked in daylight are quite good but when we transfer the same in low light it gives us noise. I think the camera quality is above average from the back. Still, I have attached some camera samples from every aspect, hope it will help you to know the camera quality in a better way.

Mobistar X1 Battery
The battery on the smartphone is packed with a 3000mAh allowing you to sail through an entire day. You can use the device very aggressively still it is not going to affect your battery life, this might be because of proper battery optimization in there UI as well HD+ display which we are getting in this device. It will take me approx 2 Hours to charge from 0 to 100% using its default charger. Battery usage of the device is good.
Mobistar X1 Verdict
Overall, if you want great looks in the device with proper wide-angle selfie then this device is for you. You are going to love the device and compactness.
