TP-Link is a brand you’ve surely heard of, if you have a router in your house and let’s face it, who doesn’t? Well, they’re making phones now and one of the latest such devices is the TP-Link Neffos X1, that we unboxed below. Announced over at IFA 2016, the handset is priced at around $200.
It’s a midrange, dual SIM metal machine available in gray or gold. The smartphone measures 7.95 mm in thickness and weighs 135 grams, but it felt very light in my hand. It must be very well proportioned. Inside its box we find a metal key, a nice looking pair of headphones, plus an USB cable, charger and manual. As far as the specs go, this device offers a 5 inch 720p screen, while inside there’s a MediaTek Helio P10 processor.
It also comes with 2 or 3 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, plus a 13 megapixel main camera. There’s also a front 5 MP shooter here and on the connectivity side there’s GPS, Glonass, WiFi, LTE Category 4 and dual SIM card slots. A 2250 mAh battery has been offered as well. The device has an interesting Mute button on the side, something you don’t see very often nowadays.
We also get a fingerprint scanner at the back and a 2.5D glass panel upfront. Fast charging is available and we’re running on Android Marshmallow with some customizations. We’ll put the device to the test and be back with impressions over the next days.
