We’ve played with a few TP-Link phones before and those have excellent pedigree, since they come from the world’s biggest router maker after all. Now we’ve just unboxed the TP-Link Neffos X1 Lite and detailed the process below. This small newcomer with a 5 inch screen is priced at $166.
We already reviewed the TP-Link Neffos X1, so the Lite is the next logical step. Launched at the end of June, the device comes in gray or gold and is bundled with a manual, USB cable and charger, as well as the SIM key. Neffos X1 Lite measures 8.5 mm in thickness and weighs 138 grams. It’s got a 5 inch 720p display, with an IPS LCD panel and runs on a Mediatek MT6750 processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz.
There’s also 2 GB of RAM in the mix, 16 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. We’ve got a classic camera combo here, between a 13 MP back shooter and a front 5 MP cam, with 84 degree wide angle lens. This phone also brings LTE Category 4 support, GPS, dual nano SIM card slots and a fingerprint scanner, that should unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. There’s also a 2550 mAh battery in the mix and the handset has a cute curved back, that makes it fit great in the hand.
By the way the above mentioned battery is said on paper to offer 16 hours of talk time or 8.5 hours of video. We’ll put that to the test and in the meantime feel free to check out the NFUI on top of Android Nougat shown in the unboxing video below.
