Reviews for the Blackview A80 Pro
The Blackview A80 Pro wants to convince us with a huge battery, numerous LTE bands and a quad-cam on the back. Because the whole thing should only cost 125 euros, we are suspicious, but maybe the smartphone will surprise us positively.

While it is undeniable that the Blackview A80 Pro has won the hearts of millions with its very affordable price, is that enough to cater for a larger market? At the end of the day, the price does not determine the true capability of the smartphone. Of course, it is true that Blackview has its own signature mark when it comes to manufacturing rugged phones, and by introducing the A series, it was clear that the company intended to produce great phones in an affordable price range. So, the A80 Pro is definitely meeting the signature need of its series by having a reasonably cheap price.
This phone comes with a 6.49-inch display with Full-HD+ for an absolute viewing pleasure. It also incorporates IPS technology, one of the leading LCD technologies in the world. Any image or video viewed on such a screen is definitely worth it for its greater details and image sharpness as well as a more immersive experience. Blackview has definitely worked hard to really reduce the edges and the overall size of the phone with this particular A-series variant.
Even though the display is attention-worthy, the true attraction of the A80 Pro lies on the back of the phone. The fingerprint reader at the back minimizes the time needed to access the phone, as it recognizes and reacts to the reading in such an accurate manner that users will definitely fall in love with this feature. Apart from that, the Quad Camera System situated next to the reader also needs to be noted for its function. It incorporates four cameras that work together in detecting the type of scene involved in image or video capturing and prepares to deliver the result with brighter colors and more details. The main sensor in this system is a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258. The A80 Pro also includes a drop-type notch on the front with an 8-megapixel Sony IMX239 sensor which allows users to activate facial unlocking and also to create blurred portraits.
Another surprise with this model is the inclusion of a Type-C USB port, which is quite rare in smartphones in this price range. Well, the A80 Pro has just proven otherwise by including the port and still keeping an affordable price. As far as the battery is concerned, the A80 Pro comes with a large 4,680-mAh battery that is definitely long-lasting after a full charge and reduces the need for frequent recharging. This not only reduces the time wasted on recharging but also increases overall productivity. Despite the cheap price, the Blackview A80 Pro does not disappoint users in terms of the choices available. This model comes in four different colors, namely black, red, blue and green for users to choose from based on their personal taste and interest.
