How I came to know about AGM X2 SE

2 months ago my friend Mohit and I had gone for a tracking. As usual, I have packed my luggage and went for the journey. Mohit is a professional tracker. He always uses to join different tracking camps. So he had taken tracking friendly things on his baggage.

After reaching the destination, we rested at the camp in the night. Then in the next early morning, we started our tracking. It was a hilly area. Suddenly, Mohit had a phone call. So I marked his smartphone. It is just like a beast smartphone and very much different from other smartphones available in the market. I asked him for his smartphone, and I got stunned by its look. The smartphone is very well protected and look like a rugged smartphone. And the good thing is, this smartphone is perfect for those people who are working at a very high sensitive area where breakage of the smartphones are maximum. That day I had determined to order AGM X2 SE smartphone as it is also featured with the impressive specification.

So, here in the below, I have expressed complete details of this beast smartphone along with my and Mohit’s verdict on this smartphone.
