GBAtemp – Official Review: F(x)tec Pro1 (Hardware)

Some wise folk once said that benchmarks don’t equate to performance, so we’ll skip right to actual performance, and my experience with the Pro1 during my test has been a positive one. I’ve been using the phone for less than a week and have not encountered any issues, lags or random reboots. I’ve tested it on Android 9.0 and it’s been a stable experience.

Having the 64 key physical keyboard free the screen from the virtual one really boosts up productivity on-the-go. I’ve used split screen to write this review’s draft while browsing the net and it’s been a seamless experience, and one I haven’t experienced elsewhere with a smartphone. This is because the phone’s 5.99-inch screen is completely available for on-screen multitasking without having a significant chunk of it taken by a virtual keyboard. Moreover, the keyboard-typing experience felt natural and this is thanks to the PC-like shortcuts like Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. It might take some muscle memory to get used to typing with the physical keyboard with two thumbs but the experience is unique these days. What’s more, you can still use the virtual keyboard in landscape and portrait mode if you need; giving the best of both worlds.
