The new smartphone TP-Link – Neffos C5s debuted, which is a representative of devices from the lower price range, but thanks to its suggested retail price is at a reasonable level. Should you give him a chance?
TP-Link introduced something for less demanding consumers – Neffos C5s, whose advantage may (but does not have to) be a display with traditional proportions, as well as data transmission in the LTE standard. Is it worth considering interest considering the price of PLN 269?
Performance at a low level
As for the equipment, I would say it is very basic. SoC MediaTek MT6737M with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor (clocked up to 1.1 GHz) is responsible for performance. The graphics are provided by dual-core ARM Mali-T720 MP2. Added to this is 1 GB of RAM. This is a modest connection that will work very differently during everyday use. Navigating the interface should, however, generally be satisfactorily fluid, although trimming can occur. The stairs will start to appear while opening "more demanding" applications like the Chrome browser or social applications, where it is necessary to load a large amount of content once. The long waiting time for loading will also be very visible when running games.
What else is in the equipment?
TP-Link in this model offers a screen with a diagonal of 5 "and FWVGA resolution (854 × 480 pixels). This is TN matrix. The screen parameters are therefore adequate to the components used. The following modules are responsible for communication: Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi wireless module working in N standard, 4G modem (LTE up to 150Mbps), microUSB 2.0 port, dual SIM card slot, as well as a GPS receiver with A-GPS. The energy efficiency of the smartphone is ensured by a 2340 mAh battery. The rest of the specification is as follows :
- Android 7.0 Nougat
- 8GB of built-in memory + microSD reader (up to 32GB)
- 5MP main camera
- 2MP front camera
- 2340 mAh battery
- dual SIM – regular SIM + micro SIM card
- Dimensions: 145.4 x 72.2 x 9.7 mm
- Weight: 160 g
Is it worth buying TP-Link Neffos C5s?
TP-Link Neffos C5s is at most a competitor to traditional mobile phones, such as the new Nokia 3310. Although the first in terms of functionality has a lot more to offer. In any other case, the purchase of TP-Link Neffos C5s is, in my opinion, far from the goal – well, unless you are looking for a smartphone for communication only, and browsing the Internet on your smartphone is a curiosity.
