Philips Xenium X605 cellphone review

Philips Xenium series of phones have one common feature, their batteries are designed to enable the phone to stay on as long as possible. With stand-by times of over a month in most Xenium phones including the rumored Philips Xenium X312 we covered in an earlier post, are designed to let you live without your phone charger for as long as possible and the Philips Xenium X605 is no different. Below you will find pictures, specs as well as what we think of the Philips Xenium X605 cellphone.

The technical specifications or details for the Philips Xenium X605 mobile phone are fairly good as things go, with features including a 2.8″ TFT touch screen with 240 x 400 pixels resolution, accelerometer, 3.2 MP camera with auto-focus and flash, microSD slot for up to 8 GB of expandable memory and 63 MB free internal memory, Bluetooth, mini-USB, FM radio, triple band GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) with EDGE connectivity available on the Philips Xenium X605 cellphone.

While it is not clear from the pictures the Philips X605 is actually a slider phone with a keypad below the touchscreen. The touchscreen is resistive and we recommend using the stylus bundled along with the Philips Xenium X605 mobile phone.

The Philips X605 cellphone also features an accelerometer and  an ambient light sensor which is used to adjust the brightness of the screen and to save your battery power to maximize the talk time and stand-by time.

All in all the Philips X605 is a mid-range touchscreen phone which is capable of providing up to 8.5 hours of talk time and 1 month of standby time. But crucially perhaps for many people, the Philips X605 mobile phone suffers from the lack of Wi-Fi and 3G access therefore severely limiting its connectivity options.
