Model: TP-Link is a company largely known in China and the Southeast Asia Pacific region to be a provider of technological devices that are generally associated with connectivity. To see TP-Link introducing a smartphone of their own is somewhat of a shocking surprise to the world. Though arguably speaking, their entrance into the smartphone industry is rather belated, it is nevertheless never too late since there will never be as good a time as the present. TP-Link bold introduces the TP-Link Neffos X20 to the world as the representative of their company in the smartphone industry. The TP-Link Neffos X20 appears to be your average everyday mundane-looking smartphone device but there is much to be explored when it comes to its design, features, and specifications. For instance, the TP-Link Neffos X20 comes in multiple color options ranging from a bold red, cool-toned blue, classic black, and the much attractive Aurora Purple. The design of the TP-Link Neffos X20 focuses on the projection of colors through a gradient glassy back and this execution works particularly well with the Aurora Purple color scheme whereby a seamless blend of purple and blue hues create an aesthetical illusion of auroral projection. This is considered to be a rather applaudable marketing move since TP-Link is willing to make the necessary investment in creating several variations for customers to choose from in accordance to their own color preference.

In addition, the TP-Link Neffos X20 has a rather expansive view of 6.26-inch HP Dewdrop Display with IPS technology as its screen of choice. The Dewdrop Display design enables the TP-Link Neffos X20 to achieve a maximized screen-to-body ratio of 87.2 percent and an aspect ratio of 19:9, which creates an undoubtedly immersive experience for users to draw themselves into. This also paves the way towards the AI Face Unlock feature that the TP-Link Neffos X20 has cleverly included into its device. There seems to be an upscaling trend in the utilization of AI Face Recognition to unlock smartphones. TP-Link paid homage to this by integrating the very selfsame technology for their TP-Link Neffos X20 smartphone model. The AI Face Unlock within the TP-Link Neffos X20 enables the device to verify the user’s identity through the dynamic detection of 106 facial key points in order to ensure maximum security. Potential users of the TP-Link Neffos X20 can now experience the very same function and feature that premium smartphone brands such as Apple’s iPhone X carry to unlock their phones with just a mere simple glance thanks to the incorporation of this latest AI technology.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

76.93%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
