Compact design

Unlike a number of today's smartphones, the X3 is quite petite and lightweight at 4.2 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by 0.4 inch thick and 2.8 ounces.

Touch screen

The X3 Touch and Type gets its name from having both a touch screen and keypad. The resistive touch screen measures 2.4 inches diagonally and has a QVGA resolution.

Keypad

Below the display is a 12-button alphanumeric keypad, which is spacious and easy to use.

Camera

The X3 features a 5-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom. The camera itself doesn't offer a ton of settings, but there's a photo editor that allows you to add various effects and adjust brightness and contrast.

Picture quality

Despite the lack of a flash, the X3's camera did an OK job with indoor jobs. We just wish the quality was slightly sharper and brighter.
