The 4x ultra sensitivity mode feature on the F5 and T3 is a technology developed by BenQ that enhances picture quality in various light settings. It works perfectly well even in dark or dimly lighted spots, claims BenQ. The F5 and T3 are equipped with 13 and 8 megapixel rear cameras respectively, supported with BSI (Backside Illumination), a feature that provides four times light-capturing of each pixel to create clearer shots.

BenQ has incorporated into the F5 and T3 a feature to minimize blue light exposure with the low blue light technology derived from BenQ LCD monitors. With low blue light technology, users are able to fine-tune the brightness level that is friendly to the eyes depending on three common scenarios; multimedia (-30%), web browsing (-50%) and reading (-70%). Gadget enthusiasts and users who spend long hours on their phones can now select the brightness level to have a worry-free experience whilst enjoying their time on the internet.

With the launch of the BenQ F5 and Ben T3 4G LTE smartphones, BenQ also announced a strategic partnership with ECS ICT Berhad (ECS) whose wholly-owned subsidiary ECS ASTAR Sdn. Bhd. has been appointed as the distributor for BenQ smartphones in Malaysia.

The BenQ F5 (RM799) and the BenQ T3 (RM599) are now available in Malaysia market in colours of white or black.
