BQ Mobile BQ-5301 Strike View: Review

BQ Mobile BQ-5301 Strike View

BQ Mobile BQ-5301 Strike View has been introduced by the company to the much saturated budget market. Going with the current trend, BQ Mobile made sure the device looks like Apple’s iPhone X.

Although it doesn’t come with the notch but the dual camera placement at the rear gave us a clue of what the company was trying to achieve. Apart from the dual rear shooters and bezel-less display, it has 1GB RAM, 8GB Storage and retails for a token.

A combination of Metal and Plastic makes up this sleek looking smartphone. I have to give it to BQ Mobile though in terms of design, they really did amazingly well with this. Sporting dual antenna lines with the iPhone X-like dual shooters.

Unlike most budget smartphones, the Strike View comes with a rear fingerprint scanner, which the company claim unlocks in 0.1s. Turning over to the sides, it measures 8.65mm in thickness, the back cover is also removable to change SIMs or battery. It weighs 145g and available in Black, Gold and Rose-gold colors.

Budget smartphones are now coming with the trending Full View display, you don’t need to spend much to own a bezel-less smartphone these days. The Strike View sports super minimal top and bottom bezel with extremely narrow bezels.

Apart from dishing out an 18:9 aspect ratio, the 5.34-inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen boasts of just 480 x 960 pixels in resolution and 201 pixel per inch density. Even though the screen quality is nothing to write home about, you get to experience the bezel-less screen which stretches up to 72.09% screen to body ratio.
