Memory

The Lumigon T3 comes with 3 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, and with no memory card slot. The 3 GB RAM means that even the most memory-intensive apps work smoothly on the phone and still shows no signs of lagging.

  • RAM 3 GB
  • Storage 128 GB

I’ve put the RAM to test by multitasking the T3. I had multiple apps open in the background and I didn’t have any issues with its performance.

Performance

Lumigon T3 smartphone runs on Android 6.0 operating system and powered by 2.2GHz, Octa-Core Processor and features a PowerVR G6200 GPU. It runs on the MediaTek Helio X10 Chipset.

For the full-screen experience, The T3 is simple, easy to navigate, and performs smoothly without any problems while multitasking but easily heats up.

The disadvantage of owning this phone is that it gets too hot while gaming, watching movies, or just surfing the web. Apart from the overheating, the T3 is fast and has an exceptional sound quality on calls and stereo speakers.

For gamers, it runs most games smoothly. You won’t notice any lag while gaming. I was able to test out NBA Live, FIFA Mobile, Call of Duty, and PUBG mobile lite. All games performed well without lagging, but I noticed an issue while playing these online games apart from the T3 heating up.

I also noticed while gaming, the T3 speakers give out crackling sound.

  • Operating System Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
  • Chipset MediaTek Helio X10
  • CPU 2.2GHz 64-Bit Octa-Core Processor
  • GPU PowerVR G6200

The T3 looks effortlessly cool; it also can be used as a universal remote, a compass, temperature sensor, and altimeter (for when you take it rock-climbing).

Another unique feature of the T3 is the BackTouch feature. This is a touch-sensitive pad that sits below the rear camera, allowing you to scroll through content without touching the screen.

It has a front-mounted fingerprint sensor. The T3 fingerprint sensor is used for biometric access to the phone. To use the sensor, you’ll have to press hard to unlock the T3.

The 360° 3D fingerprint reader provides added security along with Lumigon’s unique Vault feature that lets the user store private and confidential information on the phone.

The fingerprint reader provides added security along with the unique Vault feature from Lumigon, which enables the user to store private and confidential information on the phone.

The data within the Vault is secure and encrypted with the AES 256-bit algorithm, which can be accessed only with a password. Ideal for confidential data, e.g., PINs, apps, contacts, pictures, etc.

T3 comes with a collection of unique Lumigon apps, which are already built-in.

  • Vault
  • Mirror
  • Remote control

The earphone that came with the T3 has High-quality audio playback up to a 24-bit/192kHz stereo speaker with premium noise cancellation.

The Remote Control app on the T3 can be used as a universal remote control for TV, music center, air conditioner, etc.

Battery Life

The T3 comes with a non-removable 2400 mAh, Li-Ion Battery, with fast charging. The battery life on the T3 won’t take you throughout the day in a single charge, even without gaming or watching movies.

You’ll need to carry your charger to juice up frequently. The battery on the T3 is poor and tends to drain quickly when multitasking or just surfing the web.

T3 comes with wireless charging. Wireless charging mobile phones are cool. They save you the stress of cable handling; just drop your phone on a pad and watch it light up.

T3 is 3G and 4G capable. This smartphone has a built-in GPS receiver and comes with Near Field Communications (NFC) functionality for transferring content with other NFC-enabled devices. This Lumigon smartphone also has an FM radio receiver.

Should You Buy The Lumigon T3?

I won’t advise anybody to buy this phone because there’s no manufacturer warranty, no seller warranty, you won’t get new software updates, and the manufacturer is liquidated.

But if you ever decide to buy the T3. You should be able to get this phone within a $200 to $400 price range online or from retail stores.
