TP-Link Neffos C5 Smartphone Review


Bright entry. The Chinese manufacturer TP Link, which is known for network products, debuts on the smartphone market with three new smartphones from the Neffos series. The entry-level Neffos C5 offers a comparatively bright display and flexible usability.

bright IPS panel ; dual-SIM + SD-card slot ; replaceable battery

tactile feeling plastic rear ; camera modules ; performance ; GPS ; Android 5.1

The TP-Link Neffos C5 is an inexpensive smartphone with strengths in terms of usability – thanks to the replaceable battery and the dual-SIM feature without losing the ability to expand the storage via microSD-card at the same time. Another advantage...
