Maze Alpha X: First Impressions & Quick Review
The Maze Alpha X is a 6.0-inch smartphone with a design that stands out incredibly regarding elegance; we are referring to a series of factors that we will break down below. To begin with, its slightly rounded edges give us a feeling of softness that does not disappoint in the least, so it is quite ergonomic. On the other hand, it not only proves to be a pretty face, since it has a metallic frame that shows greater resistance.
It actually feels a lot slimmer than most 6-inch devices due to the lack of bezels.
Looking closely at the large 5.99-inches capacitive LG screen of the device, we can see that it has a resolution of 2160 × 1080, so we are dealing with a quality Full HD +. It covers 89.6% of the front, getting part of the meticulous circle of the Smartphone without almost bevels and therefore be fashionable.
When it comes to design, Maze Alpha X has a beautifully crafted anti-fingerprint plated glass capable of reducing prints from fingers when holding the device. The glassy back cover looks great. But, it’s worth mentioning that it still attracts fingerprints. I have my fingerprints printed all over the back cover in just a few minutes of soft handling. Besides, this is a device you will want to put in a protective jacket.
Since the back cover is made of glass and you might shatter it with a drop. Shattered rear glasses easily kill the beauty of every device.
The bottom has a centered USB Type-C port, the speaker grill on the left of it, and a 3.5mm audio port at the top. The left of the device has the SIM/ microSD card tray. This unit lets you to either use two SIM cards (nano) or a SIM card and microSD card.
On the right is the volume rocker and just below that, a dedicated button that serves as the power button.
The Maze Alpha X has a primary camera with a resolution of 16 megapixels accompanied by an LED flash that will greatly improve its quality. As for the front camera or as we like to call it, the selfies camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels that will undoubtedly meet all our expectations.
Turning on the device reveals the crystal clear screen. Maze Alpha X sure has one of the great displays you can get on mobile phones. This 6-inch beast is a pretty, beautifully designed piece of work, albeit fragile.
In our next article, we will be taking you through an in-depth review of this device by looking at the beautiful and ugly side of the design, performance, camera, and other aspects.
