Walton Primo X2 Review: Advantages and Disadvantages

We have seen so many cheap Android devices in Bangladesh from Symphony and Walton. The main complaint about these devices are virtually all of those are same in feature, identical in design. So no matter how good they are, you must feel bored to use it. But after the release of Walton Primo X2 in last September, 2013 we are amused by its beauty and performance. It is the most powerful flagship android device from Walton mobile. 1080p, 5 inch displays, quad-core processors and 2GB RAM’s are all staples for the 2013 flagship smartphone model and Walton ticks all the above boxes with the Primo X2. You can easily compare it with the high end devices like iPhone 5 or Galaxy S4. But, in closer look it lacks some advance feature like DLNA, NFC, HDMI output etc. Most importantly dual-SIM and memory card is also absent in Walton primo X2 which are not welcomed by anybody.

Walton primo X2 is in fact a re-branded version of the Gionee Elife E6. Gionee is the third largest handset maker in China and most of its devices are known in their re-branded name in those market. Previously some of its device has been re-branded in Bangladesh market by Walton and Symphony. There’s an air of premium attached to this device even the power/lock and volume rocker buttons are crafted to precision with good sturdy clicks, ensuring there are no accidental presses.

The phone is quite a looker with an anodised aluminium finish for its black version and a chic plastic white one. Inclusion of the Gorilla Glass 3 does a splendid job and even though the white X2 is more prone to scratches, the black version is Teflon coated.

Before expressing my comment about Walton Primo X2, I would like to tell more about this device now. Take a look below in its main specifications-
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band UMTS/HSPA+ support
  • 5" 1080p IPS2 OGS Capacitive touchscreen with 441ppi pixel density; Gorilla Glass 3
  • Android OS v4.2.1 Jelly Bean
  • 142.5 X 69.4 X 7.9 mm, 176.6 grams, 2,150mAh battery
  • MediaTek MT6589T chipset with quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU
  • PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU
  • Omni visions 13MP autofocus camera with LED flash, BSI sensor, HDR, F/2.2 & 5 lenses with blue glass filter, EIS
  • 1080p video recording, 5MP front-facing camera
  • FM radio with recording, Wireless Display Sharing
  • ROM 32GB (user available 24.94GB, RAM 2GB(user available 1.96GB)
  • Sensors: Gyroscope, Accelerometer (3D), Gravity, Linear Acceleration, Orientation, Rotation Vector, Magnetic Field (Compass)
  • Light sensors: Light (Brightness), Proximity
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n; Wi-Fi Hotspot, GPS with A-GPS
  • microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth v4.0 LE
  • Standard 3.5 mm audio jack, active noise cancellation with dual mic
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 like Smart Gestures

Moving on to the performance- The X2 is able to perform regulation tasks such as browsing through the menu, scrolling, opening apps and typing without a hitch. Browsing multiple complex webpages and multitasking all can be done nicely. The X2 runs Android 4.2 jellybean topped-off with Amigo UI; a decent addition to stock Android with its fluid & punchy animations, certainly will attract the younger crowd.

The 5 inch 1080p IPS screen of the phone exhibits good natural colors with appreciable contrast and viewing angles. The ultra-high pixel density of 441ppi ensures reading text while browsing the web is simply a joy. However, sunlight legibility remains a weakness and under direct sunlight, things can become a little murky.

If we are talking about gaming then Walton primo X2 might not be the best out there. It scores a paltry 14fps on the Epic Citadel benchmark, where the Galaxy S4 scores around 45fps. That does not mean the X2 is a gaming slouch either as all the latest games can be played with ease, just not with maxed-out graphics. Overall the quad-core 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT6589T does more than an adequate job but hardcore mobile gamers might want to give this a closer look.

You can use Walton Primo X2 a full day in a single charge which is quite an achievement to have fit in, considering the anorexic waistline of the X2. Another good news is it can go zero to hundred percent with 1 and half hour of charging.

Walton Primo X2 support OTG?

Now time for mentioning Walton Primo X2 drawbacks. Before begin my points I have to say the main concern here. It’s a 24000 taka device where you can get 50000 taka features and look. So don’t expect that everything will be as like as Samsung galaxy S4 or HTC One. I am writing the disadvantages in point below-
  • It’s not a dual SIM Android phone like all others.
  • X2 even lacks a MicroSD card slot. You have to deal with 24.94GB user available memory.
  • The battery is also non-removable as it is in unibodyform so overclockers might want to rethink before doing so.
  • The sound quality is not too good. It’s not even loud.
  • The call quality is not on par to the specs that this phone offers.
  • No OTG support

Final Thoughts
For its price, the X2 is a little expensive for local brands. But it is still excellent value for the rich feature-set it comes with, considering other phones with similar specs cost a lot more. The camera is good with even better 5MP front shooter. Games with intense graphics occasionally get slowed down. If you are looking for a phone that looks cool, performs even cooler and does not cost you over 40k taka – this is the best phone you can buy.
