Siswoo is one of the new names in the smartphones industry. The company released just a few models, but it’s obvious, that it tries to offer solid hardware for competitive price. The best part for all folks in Europe is that Siswoo offers maintenance center in Europe, plus 1-2 days deliver time for orders in Europe. The first smartphones we saw were aiming at the higher market segment. Now we are looking at their upcoming mid-range model – Siswoo C50 Longbow. As presented by the company – Siswoo C50 is faster, than a longbow arrow. We are not sure how did they compare both the smartphone and the arrow.
The phone has a promising design. We can notice a silver frame around the phone, which we hope to be a metal one (but there’s still no confirmation). There are some hardware features, which we really like. Siswoo C50 Longbow is equipped with the 64-bit quad-core MTK6735 clocked at 1.5GHz. It’s one really potent chipset as proved by our benchmarks. There is a powerful GPU as well on board – Mali-T760.
The 5-ich Siswoo C50 Longbow display is coming with the right resolution for this price. It has 720 x 1280 pixels, which is decent by all means. There are two cameras on board – 8 MP back one and 5 MP at the front. The back camera should be an Omnivision one, which means that you can expect better pictures, than an average 8 MP snapper.
There’s also a promising 3000mAh battery on board. Let’s also not forget that Siswoo C50 Longbow is running Android 5.0 out of the box. Great news since we still see just a few MTK smartphone running Android Lollipop. Another point for Siswoo.
Of course you’ll have to make a few compromises with the hardware, because of the low price. Siswoo C50 Longbow has just 1 GB RAM and 8 GB in-build storage (plus microSD card slot). But you get LTE coverage, which is great for such budget device.
Where to buy Siswoo C50 Longbow ?
The phone is at pre-sell stage and will be shipped at the end of April (27th to be precise). You can buy it from $129 at:
We think that Siswoo C50 Longbow can make some serious impact and we are looking forward to review it.
