Though Android is not properly optimized for a better battery life but smartphones manufacturers are making up for this by using batteries with bigger capacities. Lately, THL has touch a new barrier of 5000mAh in battery capacity with its latest THL 5000 Phablet. THL 5000 Octa Core Phone with 5000mAh battery promises to deliver a better battery life and user experience. This device is a beast in every aspect as it comes with top notch hardware and amazing battery life. So, here we are with our detailed THL 5000 Review.
THL 5000 supports both 2G and 3G networks. This device offers pretty good voice quality and we did not face any unexpected calls and signals drop issues in our THL 5000 Review. This device comes with Bluetooth, WiFi, Near Field Communication (NFC) and USB on the go support.
Display and Build Quality:
With its 5 inch full HD IPS LCD display THL 5000 falls under the category of phablet. With THL you get the a high quality display which offers great details, better colour reproduction and great viewing angels. We will not term it as the best available display but still it as good as most of the displays we have seen lately. The best thing about THL 5000 display is that it is protected with Gorilla Glass 3 coating which offers an added protection to it.
As far as the design is concerned, we do not see anything new in this department. It has a conventional design and one thing should be appreciated that designers have kept it very thin considering the fact that it comes with 5000mAh battery. All in all, it fells good to hold this device.
This device comes with MediaTek MT6592T octacore processor clocked at 2GHz. It is the first true octacore processor and we were surprised to see how well it performed in benchmark tests against Samsung Galaxy S5 in our THL 5000 review. It has 2GB RAM, 16GB Internal storage with microSD support. It has 8 cortex A7 cores which work at the same time. Though cortex A7 is not a performance beast but it is definitely the most energy efficient processor available in the market. Having said this, THL 5000 offers a great gaming experience and almost every latest Android game is compatible with it.
In our THL 5000 review we were excited to see how its camera performs. It has Sony made 13MP camera sensor with dedicated camera application. We were not disappointed with quality of photos. In fact, we were impressed to see the high quality images we were able to capture with our THL 5000. The quality of photos was amazing and the low light images left us spell bound. This is another area where THL 5000 impressed us.
For selfie lovers it has a veru decent 5 MP front facing camera. You can get this device for $269.99 from GearBest.com.
If you are looking for energy efficient device with a huge battery back up and top notch performance then THL 5000 is simply made for you. Though it has a very decent camera but low light images are not great so keep this point in mind before buying this device. Considering price tag of $269.99 we highly recommend it to buy this smartphone.
