Blackview A80 Plus Smartphone Review - Little Money For Fast Internet

Bargain Suspicion. If you are looking for a smartphone for very little money, you will come across Blackview at major online retailers. The A80 Plus is a bit better equipped than the cheapest models and even enables mobile payments thanks to NFC. We take a closer look at the Chinese phone in our test.

Case, equipment and operation - Good communication equipment

With its glossy surface and gradient color on the back, the smartphone looks quite chic, but it is also quite susceptible to fingerprints. There are three color variants: Blue, Red and Black. The casing is quite stable and does not react sensitively to pressure.

In terms of weight, the smartphone is relatively light, but still feels good in the hand.

The Wi-Fi module proves to be the A80 Plus' great strength in our test with the reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12: Since Wi-Fi 5 is supported, you can surf the Internet much faster with the Blackview A80 Plus than with most devices in its price range. The transfer rates are also quite stable.

It is also pleasing that quite a few LTE networks are supported, so you can use the Blackview A80 Plus to access the mobile Internet even when traveling further abroad. NFC is also on board, so those who like to store with Google Pay or similar payment services can do so with the device.

A fingerprint sensor on the back is responsible for quickly unlocking the smartphone. The recognition is quite accurate, but a small delay is noticeable. The touchscreen can be operated well.

Cameras - Actually only a single camera

You should not expect too much flexibility from the 4x camera on the back. Only the main lens can be used for photos, the other three very low-resolution cameras are only used for support. In terms of image quality, however, the 13-megapixel lens does not do badly at all: The flower is recorded with passable detail sharpness and contrasts. The surrounding image looks less detailed, but the exposure is quite good for the price range.

The camera is quite weak in low light and high contrasts, but you should not expect too much from a very cheap phone. In the lab with very good exposure, the autofocus has clear problems, the contrasts also vary depending on the image area, but overall they are not that bad. The camera no longer recognizes anything at 1 lux illumination

Thus, the camera does not do a bad job for a cheap smartphone. However, you should not rely on consistently sharp and detailed pictures and rather take a subject several times in doubt to increase the chances of a good picture.

Display - PWM with low frequency

Subpixel recording
Subpixel recording

The screen does not get as bright as the Blackview A80 Pro, but it is still on par with the class. The black value is only on a medium level, which also affects the contrast ratio.

You should not attach great importance to exact colors or a display without a blue cast, neither of which the Blackview A80 Plus can offer.

We also noticed PWM with quite a low frequency, so sensitive users should definitely try the display at low brightness before buying it.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
30 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 178.6 Hz ≤ 15 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 178.6 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 15 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 178.6 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - Passable power

The performance is quite decent thanks to the MediaTek Helio P22 with 8 cores and a maximum clock of 2 GHz, considering the smartphone's price. At least in terms of processor performance, our review sample lags a bit behind in terms of graphics. Overall, the Blackview A80 Pro offers a bit more power, but you will hardly notice that in everyday use. Simple apps run quite well on both smartphones, but you will have to make concessions when it gets a bit more demanding.

We tested the transfer rates of the micro-SD reader with our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501. They are on a fairly normal level, although there is still some room for improvement in the write speed. The internal storage is not particularly fast, but none of the comparison devices is much better here.

The smartphone's maximum temperature of 41.1 °C under longer load is also average. It could get uncomfortable in very high ambient temperatures, but we do not see any problematic heating otherwise.

A mono speaker for sound output is found on the bottom of the Blackview A80 Plus. It is averagely loud and also sounds average: The trebles are not too unpleasant, but a really full sound is not produced either. The speaker is definitely okay for occasional use.

The battery of the Blackview A80 Plus offers a somewhat below-average capacity for the class with 4,680 mAh. Nevertheless, the Blackview A80 Pro achieves decent runtimes: 15:43 hours in our Wi-Fi test speak for several days away from the power outlet. However, Samsung's Galaxy A02s proves that it can last longer. Charging is only possible with a maximum of 10 watts, so it can take up to 2 hours until the battery is full again.

In the review: Blackview A80 Plus.
In the review: Blackview A80 Plus.

The Blackview A80 Plus and the A80 Pro, which we tested about a year ago, are very close in terms of features. However, the A80 Plus has a big advantage: The much faster Wi-Fi module, since most buyers primarily use their smartphone online.

Sure, the A80 Pro offers a brighter screen and a bit more power, but we would still say that the A80 Plus is currently the better offer. With NFC, it offers the option of using mobile payment services and is otherwise up to class standard in many areas.

The Blackview A80 Plus offers fast Internet, NFC, and good performance, making it a very interesting entry-level phone.

Of course, you have to make concessions in terms of camera and screen, but the buyer will probably have to accept that for well under 200 Euros. Overall, the A80 Plus is a good offer that especially convinces with its communication options like fast Wi-Fi, NFC, and many LTE networks.

Price and availability

The Blackview A80 Plus is available for 124.99 Euros at amazon.de at the time of testing. In German-speaking countries, the smartphone is only available as a Chinese import.
