TP-Link, the Chinese network solutions giant, seems to have added another feather in it’s cap in March 2018; Neffos N1, the first flagship smartphone from TP-Link that sports a dual camera, and as expected has become the tagline and a selling point for this phone. But does this phone has something else worth buying? Let’s find out.

Amazing Build And Design

This slim and sleek phone boasts and elegance and grace. But looks can be deceptive, right? Well in this case they definitely are. This slender smartphone is supposedly so tough that it is said to have survived a torsion endurance test 500 times and a 10 cm drop test 16000 times (I don’t know who sits and drops there phone from a height of 10 cm and counts, but still is noteworthy). The display is protected by a corning gorilla glass 3 shield, which is becoming pretty common these days.


Handles All Day-To-Day Task

Now if you are someone who likes watching movies on your smartphones, or play a lot of games, or simply just stare at your screen to avoid awkward eye contacts, then this one is for you.  The N1’s corning gorilla protection becomes a must when the need is to shield such an awesome display. A 5.5 inch, IPS, FHD (1080*1920) display, you heard it right, full HD display, flexing a 401 PPI and great display angles.


And Technologically Sound

We decided to club these two points together: Camera and technology, as camera is shown off as the USP for this phone (actually every second phone in the market? Ah the craze of clicking pictures and selfies!). Anyway, the dessert for the end of the meal.

This is the first phone from TP-Link that boasts a dual camera, 12 MP+12 MP (a little late to the party?). Nonetheless, the camera seems to be a technological innovation, with features like professional quality Bokeh effect and a studio quality portrait mode (this does not mean that we are recommending you can actually use this phone the next time you take part in a professional photography contest.) Apart from that, they also flex some algorithm improvements, resulting in multi-frame noise reduction, 10 levels of beautification modes (Woah! That’s a selling point for the female audience, and well, men too, who want to look beautiful).

The other algorithm improvements claim that the fingerprint sensor has some AI dynamics, which can help in unlocking the phone in under 0.2 seconds. Talking about the fingerprint sensor, it is also oil and water resistant.

Neffos N1, the flagship phone of the Chinese giant TP-Link, a beautiful phone, a delicate yet strong phone, a smart camera phone with a smart finger print sensor. There are so many features, that it’s not possible to cover all of them in a great detail in a review, but we have tried to provide the highlights to most of them.

Some of you might be wondering why our overall outlook towards this phone seemed so positive, when most of the features it’s offering are neither innovative, nor supreme to what other flagship phones of world leading smartphone manufacturers have to offer. The reason for this recommendation is, the availability of all of these features in such a pocket friendly price. While some of you may argue that it offers only half of the features what the best phone has to offer, it is also a fact that it costs less than a quarter of that very phone.

Without a doubt, this goes down as one of the best phones in this price range.
