The notch phenomenon was started by Apple and its latest range of smartphones. Some like it so much, while some hate it so much. Soul X5 Style is blessed with the 6.2-inch Notch IPS InCell display and 19: 9 ratio, you will get an astonishing visual experience.

Unfortunately, it only comes with a High Definition resolution.

Under the hood of Soul X5 Style is somewhere in the mid-range area. There’s the integrated Helio P22 + octa-core processor that uses the artificial intelligence for the photo cameras, operating system ergonomics, power consumption optimisation, and data traffic. NeuroPilot core that is at the heart of its artificial intelligence capabilities. By using the Android Neural Networks API, the Mobile-APU's multi-core processing unit and the eight-core of up to 2.0 GHz, the new processor also provides support for augmented reality, facial recognition, identification of objects and graphic scenes.

Moving on to the camera side of things, Soul X5 Style is equipped with smart cameras: the main one of 13 MP AF + 2MP FF and the secondary one of 8 MP + AI. The special features include scene recognition and the best settings for them, great performances in low light conditions, noise reduction in multiple shots and new advanced technology for a more precise and faster focus, in both video recordings, as well as photos.

With a 4000 mAh battery supplying the necessary juice to the Soul X5 Style, there won’t be a problem to power up the smartphone for a full day or two.

Conclusion:

Allview Soul X5 Style is your typical mid-range smartphone that should cater to all your needs, thanks to its large 6.2-inch screen with a notch, good mid-range capability, dual 13MP+2MP primary camera with AI and a large 4000 mAh battery capacity. The only weak link is on its HD resolution, which might turn off a lot of people.
