MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

The Cygnus X is AfriOne’s first foray into the mid-range market. We love that it has a 6.5″ display, fingerprint scanner, face unlock, rear dual camera, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and 4000mAh  battery, and if it includes 4G support, it is perfect. If not, this is a bad deal.

If real life performance and durability matches expectations (in addition to 4G LTE), Afrione Cygnus X will help the brand solidify its place in the minds of consumers. We are bothered though that the processor is unspecified by AfriOne. Undisclosed specs usually mean unimpressive specs.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.

4 thought on “AfriOne Cygnus X”
  1. this phone is the fake and worst I have ever seen in my life. I bought it, I only use it for only two months and it’s collapse with irreparable condition. fake product, fake company, fake country.

  2. Plz, I bought this product exactly a month ago, once I charged it full, without using it will drop to like 80%, the battery is not last. Plz, can I return it for proper check up. I bought it at SLOT

    1. Hello Funmi,

      You may have to get in touch with Slot, though since it carries a manufacturer’s warranty, they will likely refer you to an AfriOne service centre.

  3. Hello. i need to repair my phone of this product, the screen and touch, have been calling the customer line since last month, i was told the parts are not available. and i need to use the phone asap, what else can i do
