It is expected that every tech giant will easily gather people’s attention at Consumer Electronics Show every year due to their technological reputation. However, let us not disregard the fact that there are other companies that, even though their names aren’t as big as Samsung or Huawei, still their products can be comparable to theirs. And that’s what Hisense, a Chinese company known for its television sets, taught us through their android smartphone at CES this year, the Hisense C20.
During their live demo, they had shown us a smartphone featuring an ‘iPhone 4/4S’ look, a 5-inch 720 x 1280, 720p resolution screen. At first glance, we have mistaken it for an AMOLED but, to our surprise, is just an IPS type LCD screen. The overall body design also is notably shock and water-resistant, which can survive submersion for an extended amount of time, given that the headset jack is plugged by the included nub. Due to a few phones having that design, there’s definitely no doubt that Hisense C20 stands out.
Adding up to that amazing feature is that it features a Snapdragon MSM8920 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage capacity, and 5MP front and 16MP rear cameras, features which can be seen in a mid-range phone. Even though the fact still remains that further unboxing and checking must be done before it earns a place in out ranks, this one undoubtedly deserves our loud applause.
