We attempt to discover out in our assessment.
Design and show
We had been fairly impressed with the design of Zopo Flash X Plus. It is one of many best-looking gadgets designed by Zopo. In our opinion, the price range Flash X Plus appears to be like even higher than the corporate’s flagship – Pace 8. The cellphone flaunts a metallic physique design with rounded edges that give it a premium look. Our assessment unit was a Black-coloured one, with a matte-finish again that attracted fingerprints.
The quantity and energy buttons are positioned on the proper, whereas the SIM card tray is on the left. The rear has a 13MP rear digicam with twin LED flash and the corporate emblem. As for the entrance, it has a 5.5-inch FullHD show and an 8MP selfie digicam. Under the show is the House button with built-in fingerprint sensor. There are two capacitive keys (Again and Choices) under the show as properly. The underside of the smartphone has a ordinary speaker grille, a 3.5mm audio jack and a microUSB charging port.
Total, we expect that the Zopo Flash X Plus is a well-built smartphone.
Speaking concerning the show, the Flash X Plus has a 5.5-inch Full HD show of 1080×1920 pixel decision. The corporate has integrated GFF know-how within the show, which not solely minimizes reflection however can be claimed to make the show thinner and lighter. The massive show makes it simpler to take pleasure in motion pictures and video games. We discovered it to have respectable visibility below direct daylight. Vowing angles and color replica had been additionally advantageous.
Efficiency and digicam
Zopo Flash X Plus is powered by an octa-core MediaTek processor paired with 3GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of inner storage, with help for microSD playing cards of as much as 128GB in dimension. These are primary specs which can be present in virtually each price range smartphone obtainable out there at this time.
Throughout our testing, the Flash X Plus dealt with multitasking and app-switching very well. We additionally performed video games comparable to Asphalt 8: Airborne and Temple Run 2, and the smartphone dealt with them decently. Nevertheless, the cellphone did warmth up and decelerate a bit of after taking part in video games constantly for about 45 minutes.
In all, we do not suppose that the Zopo Flash X Plus is the best-performing smartphone on this section as we have seen gadgets that supply higher at a lower cost.
We ran AnTuTu and GeekBench 4 assessments on the smartphone. Whereas the Flash X Plus scored 34,672 in AnTuTu, single-core and multi-core scores on GeekBench 4 had been 582 and 2,410 respectively.

The smartphone’s mono speaker performs properly and the audio output is lout sufficient.
Zopo Flash X Plus runs Android 6.zero Marshmallow working system with Zopo’s ColorOS UI layer working on prime. The UI is clear and there is an app drawer as properly.

A multi-lingual keyboard app can be there.

The rear digicam has a Sony IMX135 sensor with f/2.2 aperture, which resulted in brighter pictures in well-lit situations throughout our testing. Nevertheless, low-light pictures didn’t impress us.
The 8MP selfie digicam is not actually that good both, and we seen it to be sluggish when clicking selfies. Even the ‘Moonlight Flash’ didn’t make selfies higher.
All in all, we discovered the digicam efficiency of the Zopo Pace 8 to be nearly common.
Zopo Flash X Plus comes with a price ticket of Rs 13,999. On paper, it has every thing that you just’d anticipate from a price range smartphone. Nevertheless, it is not a very good performer general and there are higher choices obtainable out there.
