    Estep T1 EIS quick test:


    At first glance:
    - The bundle is nearly perfect.
    - The LCD is very good
    - T1 boots 30 seconds, but then it can stay in standby mode for hours (days probably) with instant-on ability.
    - It lowers framerate from 30 to 25 in low light.
    - I believe that Android 5.1 can be upgraded to 6 or 7.1 as T1 is based on very popular Mediatek chipset.
    - I also think that build.prop and camera libs can be changed/patched for better image quality.

    UPD#1:
    - The battery capacity is very impressive ~1100 mAh.
    - 3rd party cam apps (f.e. Open Camera, CameraMX, Camera FV-5 etc) can be used to add many useful functions like Panorama shooting or HDR.

      This camera uses Omnivision OV4688 sensor which is very similar to OV4689, but has modified pixel microlens pattern to match ~35 degree CRA (chief ray angle) making it possible to use more compact optical lenses.

            Also if you have the latest version of the Play store before you updated (v5.3.5), there are now a shitload of shared elements, ink, and fade activity transitions for ALMOST every action you make - but especially between apps / games, movies, books, magazines, and music artist pages.

            I suspect that the Play store app had these animations targeted to API22 because of the performance / stability fixes in 5.1.
