Editors' Review

+

A communications freeware product made for those with a VoIP phone system or a high-speed broadband Internet connection, X-Lite supports instant messaging, traditional phone use, and video or conference calls. It has a number of very desirable features such as call recording and is a great way to cut phone expenses while still maintaining quality communications with friends, family, and business contacts.

X-Lite has a unique interface; it resembles a traditional cell phone with all 10 numbers and working buttons, such as redial and mute. The user can dial the phone just like a traditional cell phone or use the address book that is located just right of the dial pad to contact another user. The address book has room for an unlimited number of contacts, and it has tabs that divide contacts into family, friends, and work. The video screen of the X-Lite is located to the right of the key pad; it provides for quality secure high-compression video calls. The center display just above the dial pad is designed to look like a traditional cell phone LCD display, and it gives you information as to the status of a call.

The video quality of the X-Lite is very good when compared with other products on the market, and it is quick and easy to download, under 5 minutes with a high-speed broadband or Wi-Fi connection. It also seems to run stable. The uninstall function also works well and cleans the application off of a hard drive and from the computer's Registry. This is a good product for people with VoIP technology in their home or office who want to take full advantage of everything it has to offer.

"X-Lite expired"

January 10, 2014  |  By Hwdfl

 |  Version: X-Lite 5.0

Pros

I had installed X-Lite on previous computers and knew it worked well.

Cons

Same as other reviews. Unfortunately I didn't read them before installing it on a new PC!

Summary

PLEASE don't offer this download if Cnet is to maintain its reputation.

"download is expired"

July 06, 2013  |  By Bbear2

 |  Version: X-Lite 5.0

Pros

None yet because I cannot even get it to run. Expired version and it closes immediately.

Cons

I downloaded it, installed easily but that was about it. When I ran it, it says that this version of X-Lite has expired and will now close. Pretty lame.

Summary

Can't even run it so at this point it gets 1 star. I'm sure it's a minor thing, but hey, like this it's a total zero if it won't even run. Don't waste your time installing it.

"Good for online calling"

November 27, 2012  |  By dahljam

 |  Version: X-Lite 5.0

Pros

I like using it for hands free calling when searching for something on the web, using web numbers or my numbers list for dialing. Clarity and reliability are good.

Cons

So far support, even online, seems to be lacking. So it atkes a while to get it working right. Also, I haven't been able to get it out of memory so it won't respond on my pc to incoming calls, except by writing a macro to do it. There must be a better way.

Summary

I have a new Win8 laptop, and I am thinking of diving in to try it again.

"No call waiting or conference calling"

July 05, 2012  |  By elkabong6350

 |  Version: X-Lite 4.0

Pros

nothing good, MUCH worse that xlite 3

Cons

VERY Buggy. They have eliminated features available in Xlite 3.
NO Call waiting
Keypad works intermittently after dialing a call
Click to dial from HTML website fails, had to re-install Xlite 3

Summary

FORGET about this program. Download Xlite 3.
this is also a memory hog. X lite 5 is EVEN WORSE! You have to watch a video !

"Very slow, and heavy"

October 04, 2011  |  By kiasiaboddobia

 |  Version: X-Lite 4.0

Pros

Like any other telephone device.

Cons

Many bad sides. Extremely slow OS startup and shutdown if you have it installed on your system. Takes lots of memory and system resource. Annoying ads.

"No support, buggy"

April 20, 2011  |  By cliveholloway

 |  Version: X-Lite 4.0

Pros

It's a usable client if you just dial plain numbers.

Cons

Keypad doesn't work when you dial a number from your address book, so it's useless to me. No Counterpath staff in the official forum for this (even though it's technically adware), so there's no way for me to get the issue resolved .

Summary

If you just need to dial numbers, it does the job, otherwise look elsewhere.

"Dice que son llamadas gratis, pero solicita una cuota"

April 07, 2011  |  By rgvaldelamar

 |  Version: X-Lite 4.0

Pros

Es sencillo de utilizar pero al final solicita una cuota para efectuar las llamadas

Cons

Si al final solicita una cuota, porque se promociona como llamadas gratis?
