With a 5.5-inch HD screen and an 8MP camera, the Optus X Smart delivers plenty of modern smartphone features at a very agreeable price.

Phones come in all shapes and sizes these days, from the bleeding-edge extravagance of the latest iPhones to the bare bones simplicity of retro-styled feature phones like the Nokia 8110 4G. Both ends of the spectrum serve wildly different audiences, but neither adequately caters to the smartphone buyer looking for a handset capable enough to keep pace with the modern online world yet affordable enough to be purchased outright rather than requiring commitment to a lock-in contract.

That's why phones like the Optus X Smart exist. Equipped with a large touch screen, a capable camera and 4G connectivity, it covers all the basic functions expected of a modern smartphone while sporting an accessible budget price tag. If you don't need lightning fast performance or flashy features like wireless charging and NFC, the Optus X Smart might be just the handset you've been looking for.


  • 5.5-inch screen is impressively large for a budget smartphone.
  • Headphone jack and decent storage capacity make it a capable portable entertainment device.


  • 8MP rear camera should satisfy most basic photo needs.
  • Beauty mode and panorama support provide additional flexibility.


  • Enough power for basic day-to-day phone tasks.
  • Slowdown is likely if you push it too hard.


  • 2,500mAh battery can deliver up to 15 hours of talk time and 500 hours on standby, according to Optus.

      Hi Anita,

      Thanks for getting in touch! The Optus X Smartphone will work in India but not with an Indian Sim. It will only work with an Optus sim. Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.
