About the Phone
The X28 Plus can be reasonably considered as a value for money phone with its pocket-friendly design and useful features – all below INR 5,000/- without compromising on the viewing or performance. There are a few downsides of being a value phone as well. Here’s a detailed view of all its highs and lows:
- Quite a Big Screen
- Sharp Viewing
- Good Processor
- High Battery Capacity
- Can be a bit Heavy
- Disappointing Camera Quality
- Lower prices can lead to being lured into duplicate/refurbished models
Overall, the X28 Plus can be a low-priced above average phone that would be good to own as a travel phone for its extended lasting battery capacity and sound processor. However, the camera can be a bit disappointing in terms of image quality.
Launched in February 2017, the X28 Plus runs on a 1.3 GHz Quad-core processor clocked at 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage expandable up to 32GB. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow Operating System provides a lag-free usage with a 2600mAh battery capacity. It has a pretty big 5.5 inch IPS LCD HD capacitive screen with the resolution of 720 x 1280MP and 267 ppi density for clearly defined viewing experience. It also sports a set of front and rear cameras of 5MP+8MP respectively that yields acceptable images. Available initially at 7,199/- and now at 4,899/- on Flipkart, this device is specially built for those people who’d want to use it for everyday needs without going deeper into gaming or editing experiences.
The X28 Plus has the dimensions of 155 x 78 x 9 mm (6.10 x 3.07 x 0.35 in) weighing 175 g and supporting a Dual SIM management. With a sleek, metal design of thickness 8.9mm and standing out display screen, this phone looks pretty good on the hands and can easily fit into your pockets. Available in the colours of Champagne Gold, Black Coffee and Space Grey colours, this device is only available online for the users at a budget-friendly price.
The X28 Plus has a sharp show with 5.5-inch IPS LCD HD capacitive multitouch screen with the resolution of 720 x 1280MP and a pixel density of 267ppi. As the screen to a body aspect ratio of this device is 69% which is more significant than other Lava phones, it stands out in this phone, and the high resolution gives it a sharp and clear viewing experience.
The Lava X28 Plus comes with a Quad Core MediaTek Helio MT6735 CPU working at 1.3GHz and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU on 1GB RAM for all its functions. This makes the operation lag-free and fast compared to the other phones but can freeze when used for graphics-rich content. This device also supports 3G, 4G, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth v4.0 GPS for secure connectivity.
X28 Plus packs an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera with LED flash for low light shooting along with several features like Time Lapse and Slo-Mo video shooting. However, this camera struggles during the day in the outdoors as the images come out to be overexposed and washed out in colours. But as long as you’re taking indoor photographs, the camera delivers decent photos. It also supports Full HD video recording at 1080p clocked at 30 frames per second.
Unlike other models of Lava, the X28 Plus features a 2,600mAh Li-ion removable battery that can render up to 15.2 hours of talk hours in 2G and 14.2 hours in 3G connectivity. Such lasting capability is rare to find in a phone that stands out for its crisp viewing experience at a low price of INR 4,899/-
Overall, it can be said that the X28 Plus can serve efficiently to be your on-the-go phone where you need to be connected to your closed ones via multiple channels without getting too much into mobile gaming (if you’re a gamer) in an affordable budget!
