Neffos C5 & Neffos C5L - TP-LINK Launches New Smartphones In Malaysia

TP-LINK smartphones? Unheard of, at least to me. I've grown up with TP-LINK's superb networking products, so when I heard they are entering the smartphone market in Malaysia with the introduction of its entry-level phone, the Neffos C5L and its mid-range phone, the Neffos C5, I just had to attend the launch at The Bee, Publika recently. The release of these smartphones marks the company’s global direction to provide customers a truly seamless mobile experience under its Neffos brand (Neffos C5 Live Fun)

Launched at The Bee, Publika, it was a rather straight forward launch. The new smartphones were launched at an engaging media and bloggers meet where the audience were given an opportunity to interact with the products and its various features.

It was fun getting to touch and play with the functions of TP-LINK's new smartphones, the Neffos C5 and C5L, at the launch event.

Handling the smartphones in my hands, I'm satisfied with the build quality of the Neffos C5 and C5L, feeling substantial and rather weighty. It was a hands on experience during the event, but with the limited time I had, I'm pretty amazed at the display screen and speed. Check out the product details below. My comprehensive review will come in subsequent blog posts, once I take home one for a longer period of time.

Stunning Camera 

Both the Neffos C5 and Neffos C5L are equipped with an 8MP rear camera that allows users to capture their favourite moments in perfect detail. The smartphones also come with front-facing cameras – a 5MP front camera with a wide-angle lens for the Neffos C5 and a 2MP front camera for the Neffos C5L – that enables users to take more epic selfies with their loved ones.

Combined with a highly customized Android 5.1, the Neffos C5 also uses smart technology to simplify one’s life with a personalized interface, providing natural, colourful, effortless operation. 

Enjoy Mobile On Your Own Terms

Consumers can experience complete mobile freedom, keeping separate work and personal numbers with its Dual SIM Dual Standby function. This allows users to subscribe to different mobile plans at the same time, as well as connect to networks around the world. Dual sim functions have become and integral part of our lives now. We are so busy nowadays that one smartphone no longer suffice, hence smartphones with dual sim capabilities are much sought after.
