Features, Performance, and Reviews for the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini

The CPU performance of AQUOS PHONE Xx mini

The processing power of the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini is, at 2.2GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

AQUOS PHONE Xx mini's storage capacity

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of AQUOS PHONE Xx mini

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini has a 13.1 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini comes equipped with a 1.2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of AQUOS PHONE Xx mini

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini's battery capacity is 2120mAh, a standard level for these types of phones.Compared to other smartphones, the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

AQUOS PHONE Xx mini's size

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini is 24.8 in (63 mm) wide, 48.8 in (124 mm) tall, and 3.9 in (9.9 mm) thick.At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands.In the case of the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini, it weighs about 4.1 oz (117 g).The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

Both the size and weight of the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

AQUOS PHONE Xx mini's screen

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini has a 4.5 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the AQUOS PHONE Xx mini is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

Overall assessment of AQUOS PHONE Xx mini

The AQUOS PHONE Xx mini is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
