Bluboo Xtouch drop tests show the power of triple screen protection


If you’re looking for a smartphone with some serious display protection, you may want to consider the Bluboo Xtouch. In the latest drop test video, the Xtouch fared well in each round of torture.

First, the Bluboo Xtouch was dropped vertically 1.2 meters on the bottom of the phone’s metal frame, and the impact only provide a few scruffs on the frame without impacting the rest of the device. The tester was still able to pick up the phone and swipe through the app drawer and screens without trouble. In the second drop test, the Xtouch was dropped at waist height, horizontally on the side of the metal frame. The third drop test was a vertical drop from 1.7 meters high, with the device having no additional scruffs on the frame other than what occurred in the first drop test.

The Bluboo Xtouch achieves this endurance by way of its three-pronged display protection. First, the Xtouch features a 5-inch, Full HD 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 display, which is relatively strong enough to provide protection for even 10-foot drops. In light of the capabilities of Gorilla Glass 3 (not the Gorilla Glass 4 of high-end flagships, mind you), it’s not surprising to see the Xtouch perform well. Next, there is the metal frame, constructed by way of the CNC cutting process that makes the frame “razor-sharp.” Lastly, the Bluboo Xtouch features a “U Type” suspended screen. Other drooling features of the device consist of a fingerprint scanner, Hi-Fi audio, 4GB of RAM (perhaps LPDDR3), Android Lollipop, and a 3,050mAh battery. For all of this tech goodness, Bluboo will sell the Xtouch for $179.99.

If there’s anything to take away from the Bluboo Xtouch drop test video, it’s that you can never have too much protection for your phone display. To learn more, watch the video above and hit up the source link below.

      Even if for some reason i don’t know my self i loooove this phone, i think DEIDRE needs to cool-off the advertising. Andi could give her advise on how to make an AD without making it look so obvious as MAxwell does, or even Yash sometimes. Now if she comes with some info regarding the real Xtouch PRO version that would be really appreciated. 😉

    The Xtouch does only have 3GB of RAM, or did they upgrade the basic version? Only the pro will feature 4GB of RAM…

    I hope that this is not maximum brightness and if it is not I do not understand why. Sunlight readability is not impressing at all. Insanely old Sam Wave ashames Xtouch’s screen in this video.

    The movie is edited … drop a dummy .. pick up a real phone .. they don’t even have the basics of proving a phone’s reliability …

    Drop it face down and get back to us. Meanwhile Deidre is becoming tiresome. Doesn’t Andi read our comments?

      it will perform the same as any other gorilla glass 3 phone — the glass is the thing they measure to break.

    I’ve seen so many different ram claims, I dont know what to believe. 2GB, 3GB, 4GB .. I’ve literally read all three just today trying to find out about the phone.

    I was evaluating this bluboo xtouch (170$) and Umi Iron Pro (160$). I’m more
    oriented towards the second one, those are the winning points in my
    opinion:
    – Wider screen
    – Three security features (fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and vocal)
    – USB type c for faster transfer speed
    – Dedicated audio chip for in-ear music listening
    – metal body
    – beautiful notification led like Oppo
    Bluboo was interesting for OIS stabilization, but it turned out it was a fake advertising move, not present. So no real reason to go for it, also battery seems on the fake side, probably some 2200mah unity.
