Optus X Spirit

It wasn't so long ago that we all saw smartphones purely as luxury items – incredibly helpful yet prohibitively expensive for anyone operating on a strict budget. As mobile technology has advanced, however, smartphone manufacturers have been able to incorporate cheaper components into their handsets and provide budget-conscious phone buyers with versatile devices at an affordable price point.

This is exactly what you get with the Optus X Spirit. Retailing for an agreeable $99, about $50 cheaper than the Optus X Smart, the low-cost handset offers basic smartphone functionality including 4G Internet connectivity, access to the Android app library and capable front and rear cameras. For cash-conscious phone buyers wanting a handset with modern capabilities, this makes the Optus X Spirit worth consideration.


Design

  • Standard design is simple yet functional
  • Android 6.0 remains a capable operating system

Camera

  • For basic photography, the 5MP camera should be adequate

Performance

  • Far from a powerhouse, but fine if you're only using it for basic phone tasks

Battery

  • Up to 11 hours of talk time or 440 hours on standby, per Optus benchmarks

Pricing and availability

  • Price: RRP $99
  • Where to buy: The Optus X Spirit is no longer sold in Australia
