The contrast between black and grey plastic is what the manufacturers have chosen to use for the design of the X800. It has dimensions standard for its class, not small, but rather well fitting in the hand and it is operated with ease and pleasure. Due to its size, carrying the device in small pockets is uncomfortable and we would recommend using the case provided in the phone set.

Unfortunately, finding a phone with a touch sensitive display and a resolution higher than the standard 240x320 doesn’t happen very often, but with the X800 you have a 480х640, or four times the fineness with which the device can produce images. This is one of the few phones on the market, offering such type of display, for which the staff from the Taiwanese company really deserves praise. The rest of its characteristics are as follows: size 2.8”, TFT type and up to 65536 colors. The picture of the display is with well saturated colors and you won’t have any trouble reading it even in direct sunlight, due to the strong brightness. A VGA camera is positioned over the display, which will be used for video calling. Both service LED indicators are located here as well.

X800 has a Start menu and confirmation keys, which are small and hard to press. The rest of the buttons are big, with a very good feedback and operating with them is easy and pleasurable. Another change the designers have made is to take away the 5-way D-Pad and replace it with a joystick. You won’t have any difficulties working with it since it’s very easy to distinguish from the rest of the buttons.

If we turn the phone, on the left side we will see positioned the headset jack, reset, record button and the volume keys. The buttons have a weak tactile feedback and are hard to press due to the fact that they almost blend with the panel.

We had the same trouble with the Power key as well, which is located on the right hand-side. The camera shortcut button, which although small in size is very easy to press, is positioned here also.

In the bottom part of the phone there is space assigned for the microSD slots, USB cable and the microphone opening as well. Putting the microSD card in is easy, but pulling it is out is quite hard to do.

X800 disposes of a 2 megapixel camera with a flash, located on the back side of the device. The loudspeaker is also here.

Typically for a Windows Mobile Professional smartphone, the X800 disposes of a telescopic stylus for more precise display operations, which is located in the lower right.
