It’s Alive!

The Neffos C5 has a bright and sharp 5″ IPS display, with a resolution of 720 x 1280. The display is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass, which offers it significant scratch and shatter resistance. However, it lacks an oleophobic coating, which means it’s very easily smudged.

The Neffos C5 has a polycarbonate back with a smooth matte finish, that is resistant to smudges. As you can see, it fits well in our Asian-sized hand and is small enough for single-handed use. In case you are wondering, it is 7.2 cm wide, 14.4 cm tall and 8.8 mm thick.


Available Memory & Storage

The Neffos C5 comes with 2 GB of memory, which is very decent at its price point. About half of that is available for your apps. Plenty enough for multiple apps running at the same time. Very nice.

The Neffos C5 also comes with 16 GB of internal flash memory. Once you deduct 9.65 GB for the Android 5.1 operating system and apps, you have 9.44 GB of free space left to use. That is pretty decent actually, allowing you to store about 2,400 photos, or record 74 minutes of 1080p video.


Dual SIM & microSD Slots

The Neffos C5 has dual SIM, dual standby capability. It also has a microSD slot that supports microSD cards with capacities up to 32 GB. All three slots are located next to the removable 2,200 mAh battery. Yes, you will need to remove the battery before inserting a SIM card or a microSD card.

The Neffos C5 has pretty decent cameras for its price point. Its front camera has a 5 MP sensor, while the rear camera has an 8 MP sensor with a dual-tone flash. The rear camera is capable of taking photos with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 and 1080p videos in the 3GP file format.

The camera software is quite limited in its capabilities. It offers a number of filters and 6 scene modes (including HDR). However, you are not given any option to change the camera settings.
