Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank

Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's size

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank is 2.00787inches (51mm) wide, 4.0157inches (102mm) tall, and 0.711inches (18.05mm) thick. It's extremely compact, and can be easily operated with one hand. In the case of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank, it weighs about 5.81oz (165g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

The size and weight of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank make it very comfortable to use. If you're looking for a smartphone that is easy to handle and carry around, then this should be your first choice.

Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's screen

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank has a 2.8 inch screen. The screen is rather small, and the displayed text will appear tiny, as will buttons, which most users will feel to be inconvenient and hard to press.

The resolution of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank

The processing performance of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank is quite low at 0.5GHz×1(Single core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank only has 288.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's storage capacity

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank has 512.0MB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank 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 Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank

The main camera of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank is 3.2 MP pixels, which is a very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your photos and videos, or rarely ever shoot or film with your smartphone, it should be no problem. But otherwise, you should choose a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank comes equipped with a 0.3 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 Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank

The battery of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank has a capacity of 1380mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Overall assessment of Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank

The Touch Pro X05HT SoftBank's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.
