The body of the Allview C5 Smiley is 2.5 inches (64 mm) wide, 4.9 inches (125 mm) long, and 0.4 inches (11 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 4 inch, and it weighs 118.5 oz (118.5 g).

The camera of the Allview C5 Smiley

The Allview C5 Smiley has a back camera with 15 MP. Its rear camera has slightly better performance compared to normal smart phones. While there are times when I feel it is lacking, it is able to take pictures with satisfactory quality almost all the time.

Review of the product design of the Allview C5 Smiley

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Allview C5 Smiley, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Allview C5 Smiley around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Allview C5 Smiley is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Allview C5 Smiley in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

The Allview C5 Smiley has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Allview C5 Smiley is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

 

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Allview C5 Smiley by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The Allview C5 Smiley is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

Since the body of the Allview C5 Smiley is lightweight, your hands will hardly ever feel sore or tired even after using the phone for a long time. Also, since it is a light and compact phone, it will still be easy to hold even when using a case.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Even when used with one hand, the Allview C5 Smiley has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.

The size of the buttons on the App

Overall, the operating buttons on the Allview C5 Smiley feel small. This makes it easy to mistap, but usually this won't be a problem once you get used to it. The operating buttons in games are generally small so you may feel like it is hard to control when you're playing.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

You can type easily on the Allview C5 Smiley even with a tight grip. Even when typing at high speeds you can type freely without having to loosen your grip.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

It is difficult to not have typos with the Allview C5 Smiley because each button on the keyboard is quite small, and it is almost impossible to type fast with the device. With a device this size, it'd be better to switch to flick input so you can type faster.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Allview C5 Smiley is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

The display of the Allview C5 Smiley is somewhat small and this can make letters feel small as well. However as the size of the writing can be adjusted in the OS settings and the screen isn't so small that it is hard to see images, this shouldn't be an inconvenience for normal use. While it doesn't seem well suited for reading long sentences in emails or when researching something, I can say that it is suited for short messages and for looking things up quickly.

Ease of reading sentences

The Allview C5 Smiley displays fonts relatively nicely, and even small characters can be displayed nicely. While people with good eyes can see the jagged outlines of characters when they look at the display up close, this does not make the characters difficult to see. It can be said to be a display that is adequately suitable for reading text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The Allview C5 Smiley can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

When typing a sentence with the Allview C5 Smiley the keyboard obscures the screen to some extent. While I do feel like there isn't enough work space to allow for long sentences, for short sentences it isn't really an issue.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

When using the Allview C5 Smiley for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The device is not suitable for looking things up on the Internet or browsing SNS, and you can always feel how laggy the phone is. Apps can stop or become completely unusable even when you try to slowly operate the phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

The phone can't handle it if you keep going back and forth between apps. For instance, if you keep going back and forth between your SNS app and chat app, the operation may be overloaded and, as a result, the apps may be closed or crash.
