KXD Mobile launched a new smartphone KXD K30 in the budget segment. With a starting price under $100, the device is one of the cheapest smartphones to sport an 8MP primary camera set-up. The light-weight device features a glossy back body that reflects rainbow patterns against light and gives the phone a near-premium look.
Let us see what the 3GB+32GB variant (midnight black color) has to offer. With rounded corners, the device sports 8MP + 5MP rear camera set-up. The smooth fingerprint sensor sits at the back alongside the “KXD Mobile” logo.
While the right edge of the smartphone carries the volume rockers as well as the lock button, the left edge of the device hosts the tray with dual SIM support along with a dedicated space for memory card.
The K30 comes equipped with a 5.7-inch HD+ display, the HD+ Dot Notch with 18:9 aspect ratio display is decent enough to experience video streaming and games but when compared to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 and Asus’s Zenfone Max Pro M1 that offer Full HD+ displays, K30 lost some edge.
The camera app houses industry-standard features like Bokeh effect, Beauty Mode, Wide Angle that automatically adjusts light, brightness and contrast parameters to provide optimal results. The performance of the 3,000mAh battery was impressive. On moderate usage, the device made it to an entire day.
KXD K30 is powered by a quad-core MTK 6750 processor which lags behind the Redmi Note 7 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 or and Vivo Y91 with MediaTek helio P22 chipsets. Running Android 9 Pie, the phone features the company’s KXD OS operating system (OS) that opens the interface up to an app drawer lay-out with a funky bouncy effect.
In addition, the device supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity options along with an audio port for aux connection at the bottom of the device. Despite notable attempts, the low-light camera functioning was not that great. Also, the missing notification LED makes it difficult to keep tabs of charging status and text alerts.
Conclusion: KXD K30 brings in several trending features like the triple rear camera set-up, good battery life and big display at an affordable price point.
