TP-Link released a smartphone called Neffos Y5s back in January 2018. It is a device with a marvelous display that delivers HD resolution for immersive viewing experience when viewing experience. Also, there are nice colors and it looks good from different angles. It is easy to carry around and it fits snugly in a trousers pocket.

Here below, we are going to examine salient features of Neffos Y5s with the aim of understanding the design, display, camera, network, performance, battery and other issues.

Design and Display of Neffos Y5s

The device is bar shaped, and comes with 144 x 72 8.6 mm dimensions. It weighs 155 grams and comes only in gray color. Furthermore, this device is neither water resistant nor does it have fingerprint sensor.

Display type is IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. Moreover, the screen size is 5 inches, though there is no secondary display in the device. Pixel density is 294 ppi, pixels resolution is 1280 x 720, and display colors are 16 million. The screen to body ratio is 66.4 percent. However, there is no display protection in the device.

Camera Features

At the camera department is an 8 MP LED flash single Lens. At the rear is a single selfie lens of 2 MP. This also comes with LED flash. Video performance is 720p@30fps. Other clearly defined camera features are geotagging, auto focus, HDR, touch focus, face detection, panorama, and others. These cameras allow for punchy and impressive outputs. The greatest help here is that pictures can be bright when snapped in dim light.

Hardware and Software

Android OS v7.1 is the driving software in the Neffos Y5s. There is no hope that this operating system will ever upgrade to latest Android 9 Pie. In addition to that, there is Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 in the device. It is followed by CPU 1.3 GHz Quad-core, and GPU Adreno 304. All these enable smooth running of apps and files on the smartphone.

Battery Life

Powering the Neffos Y5s is a 2450 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that has no wireless charging, nor fast charging technology. However, it is able to provide all-day backup for the user when fully charged.

Price and Availability of Neffos Y5s

Pricing of Y5s is about $97 USD. But that may not be the best pricing at this time of the year, bearing in mind that the mobile phone was released in the month of January 2018. Price must have been adapted at different periods in the year.

If the buyer must get the best price online, he or she has to really scout the online smartphone stores for it. As for availability, the smartphone is available for purchase.
