Xtigi is a China-based gadget manufacturing company which has its base in Hong Kong, China. The OEM is known for the production of cheap and affordable budget smartphones and is largely penetrating the African smartphone market, particularly in Kenya.
The latest beauty from Xtigi is yet another budget device, the Xtigi Discovery 1 and we shall be looking at the major specifications of the device under the headers below.
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
The Xtigi Discovery 1 comes with a big and bold look. On first glance, you may be forced to think the device is a rugged smartphone. I particularly love the rocky feel and the metal-plastic body build of the Xtigi Discovery 1 because it will go a long way in protecting the device from breaking when it falls on subjected to pressure.
The Xtigi Discovery 1 comes with a large 5.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This display is just the right type to handle basic operations like watching movies, reading, playing games and so on due to its ability to produce sharp images with decent and wide viewing angles.
The Discovery 1 comes with a special Torchlight on the top and a special dedicated button on the right side to switch the Torchlight on or off.
The Xtigi Discovery 1 comes in three different colour options; Black, Gold, and Green; each with metal on the side with either silver or gold coating.
PROCESSOR, OS AND STORAGE
The Xtigi Discovery 1 comes with a MediaTek chipset and runs on the Android v6.0 Marshmallow operating system. The device comes with a disappointing 1GB RAM which may make the device lag or become slightly hot during usage. The Xtigi Discovery 1 really isn’t the best device for heavy smartphone users and gamers.
However, it comes with 16 GB of RAM which with an external memory card, can be expanded to 64 GB.
CAMERA AND BATTERY
The Xtigi Discovery 1 has single sensor on the back and on the front. A 13 MP camera is embedded on the rear and next to it are dual LED flash. The secondary camera is a 5 megapixels lens but lacks an LED light.
The other favourite part of this device is the battery. The battery capacity is really huge; a whole 5,800 mAh. This is enough battery power to last an average user a day or more period of usage.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
The Xtigi Discovery 1 is a budget smartphone with an affordable price. The device is available on at a token of Ksh. 8,500; about NGN 29,000.
If you buy the device on Jumia Kenya, you will be given a selfie stick as a gift.
