TP-Link smartphone brand, Neffos, has introduced a new smartphone that slots below its current Neffos X1 and X1 Max lineup. As the name suggests, the Neffos X1 Lite is their entry-level offering and it runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
UPDATE: We’ve updated the guide! Now there are four brand new smartphones for you to choose from.
It’s that time of the year again. Although a whole host of new smartphones have been launched, a lot of the conversation is about the smartphones at the top end of the market. “What about those on a tight budget?”, you must be wondering, “Do tech sites even care about those of us who can’t spend a month’s salary on a device?”, you’re probably thinking.
Well, we care. So, here are some of the best phones you can get for under RM1,200.

“Is the WiFi working?” That’s a question that gets asked a lot in the SoyaCincau headquarters. Most of the time, it’s met with a resounding groan and a big no. When you’re in a profession that needs a steady internet connection like we do, having your router go down more often than you take meal breaks is just plain frustrating.
So, we put our heads together and after some investigation, we deduced that our poor little sub-RM300 router simply couldn’t handle the load we put it under. So, that got us thinking: Is investing more money in an expensive router actually worth it? To find out, we reached out to TP-Link and asked if they could let us review one of their new routers. They responded by sending us the Archer AC3150 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit router.
Yup, that’s a thousand ringgit router. Here’s what we think of it.
We saw at IFA 2016 that Neffos was going to try their hand at a more premium category of smartphone with their brand new X1 series smartphones. Now, they’re finally launching these devices in Malaysia. Here are the details.
TP-Link’s first foray into the smartphone market with their Neffos brand was met with rather lukewarm reception. The devices were decidedly entry-level with plastic bodies and not a lot of horsepower under the hood. They weren’t particularly good value devices here in Malaysia either and that’s crucial when you’re competing in such a competitive segment of the market.
Now, though, TP-Link is taking a different approach with their new smartphone lineup, opting for a more premium build with better internals.
Has it worked?
We just passed Q2 of 2016 and throughout the year, there have been a bunch of new smartphones making an appearance. These devices range from the high-end flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, to more affordable handsets like the brand new honor 5C. But, for someone who is looking to spend the bare minimum amount on a handset, you might find that your choices are limited.
Many tech websites, us included, are guilty of almost ignoring the cheap and cheerful smartphones in the market. Sure, when they launch we take a look at them, be like “oh they’re OK” and then move on. That makes it really hard for someone who is on a tight budget to make the right decision when purchasing a budget handset.
The thing is, as we’ve discovered after some pretty extensive testing, there are actually some really good cap ayam smartphones here in the market.

TP-Link has finally rounded up the the trio of Neffos C5s in Malaysia with the launch of their range-topper Neffos C5 Max which is a marked improvement over the other two Neffos C5 smartphones revealed earlier.
Earlier we reported that TP Link was due to launch two new smartphones in Malaysia under their Neffos banner. Today, they pulled back the covers on the Neffos C5 and C5L — two entry level smartphones with decent specs.
In a game of word association, TP-Link wouldn’t be a name many would associate with a smartphone considering how deeply entrenched they are in the modem and router business. So imagine our surprise when we found out they launched not one, but three different smartphones under the brand Neffos.
What’s more, TP-Link will be bringing some of their devices to Malaysia next week.
