ECOO is a manufacturer ready to emerge from other recognized Chinese brand earlier this year, which featured multiple devices with a very good price/quality ratio, including ECOO E05, which is available through Gearbest for only $192.29.
The ECOO E05 has some details that serve to differentiate itself from the competition and be an alternative to the high ends of the Chinese market, especially if you are looking for a smartphone and not a phablet. This is a great design, clearly, with no need to have a catalog full of rounded edges. The design of this ECOO E05 has a flattened line at the edge, which makes it something differentiator but still, we cannot help thinking that is based on the so typical design of Apple.
The device is characterized by being constructed of metal with a 2.5D curved screen and 5 inches with Full HD resolution (1080p). The technical sector includes a Mediatek MT6753 SoC of 64 bits at 1.50 GHz (8x Cortex-A53 and Mali-T720 GPU), which is incorporating 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage memory, which is expandable with microSD up to 32 GB.
The photography section seems to be very similar to what we saw in the ECOO E04 Aurora. Specifically we find a rear camera of 13 megapixels and 5 megapixels in the front part. Along with the main camera the ECOO E05 has a fingerprint reader, and inside there is space for a 2500 mAh battery, a modem that offers 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS connectivity.
Last, but not least, the ECOO E04 features the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system that not seems to have any customization layer for the images have been shown till the moment. By the way, the ECOO E05 is in pre-sale and it ends on 30 September, but you can buy already from the link we leave in the first paragraph.
