The T1 5G is powered by a very capable Qualcomm Snapdragon® 778G 5G processor.  This means most games, if not all, would have no problem running on the smartphone.

It also boast of a heat dissipation area of 32,923mm², which is three times the phone’s surface area. This means the T1 5G will always stays cool and delivers peak performance.

To improve performances further, vivo updated its Multi-Turbo 5.5 using an AI algorithm to allocate computing power and optimize the processor, memory, system, and more with the phone using its innovative Extended RAM 2.0 technology to supports more apps (up to 25 apps) running in the background.

This in turn ensures smoother transition between apps.

During gaming, the smartphone offers turbo-charged immersive gaming experience via its Ultra Game Mode. This mode provides a more indulgent sensory experience as the carefully calibrated Z-axis linear motor responds quickly to gaming actions with compelling vibrations. Its 4D Game Vibration also immerses gamers in a world where every move feels real.

Last but not least, the T1 5G will be available in two new colours; Turbo Black and Turbo Cyan.

Personal thoughts on the T1 5G

This budget friendly smartphone only cost RM1,249, hence making it one of the few affordable gaming smartphones out there.

I do have reservations in regards to its plastic frame and body, but I don’t think this will be an issue for those seeking to play mobile games.  In black, the smartphone looks nice, but this is my personal preference.

Considering the specifications, the T1 5G is above average and should be able to allow one to play their games without much issues.
