Reviews for the Blackview S8

70% Blackview S8 Review: Galaxy Features Without The Astronomical Price (and Giveaway!)
Source: Make Use Of English version
For the price, you could certainly do worse than the Blackview S8. If you're looking for a solid phone that won't break the bank, this is one to have on your short list.

ARM Mali-T860 MP2: Dual-Core version of the Mali-T860 graphics card from ARM for mostly Android based smartphones and tablets. E.g. in the Mediatek Helio P10 clocked at 700 MHz and produced in 28nm.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

MT6750: ARM-based octa-core SoC (4x Cortex-A53 up to 1.5 GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 up to 1 GHz) with 64-Bit support and integrated LTE Cat. 6 radio.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

This brand from the Blackview International Group was created in Hong Kong in 2013. Smartphones are the focus of marketing.

However, there are only few reviews and the market shares are very low (2016).

70.8%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
