Design

Geecoo G5

A combination of Metal and Plastic here, it looks nothing short of exquisite just like the G6 smartphone. To be honest, Geecoo knows exactly how to make these beauties. The symmetrical aesthetics going on at the rear is simply unique, with the dual-LED flash starting a vertical train.

The dual rear camera follows suit, before the fingerprint scanner then the Geecoo logo rounds it up, all at the top corner. It sports curved sides and edges as well and could easily pass off as a Samsung Galaxy S8 look-alike. In terms of coloring, it’s available in Black and Blue colors only. Lets turn over to the front now, shall we?

Display

Geecoo G5

Geecoo isn’t new with the bezel-less display, they did it perfectly well with the G6. Trying it in a more affordable smartphone looks perfect, the G5 sports super minimal bezels and curved display. The top bezel houses the usual features, like the dual selfie camera, speaker grille and the rest.

The bottom bezel also came out to play as well, while the narrow bezels are almost non-existent. The 5.99-inch HD+ IPS capacitive touchscreen doesn’t have a mind-blowing quality though. Boasting of just 1440 x 720 pixels in resolution and 268.78 pixel per inch density offering normal and clear visuals.

  1. We now are having more phones coming out with better specs and upgraded features. Though, at a tentative price of N60,000, I can’t afford this beauty. I know the price would be a little more than this when it gets here. But, I really love everything about it.
