ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

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

Helio G99: ARM based octa-core SoC with 2x big ARM Cortex-A76 cores and 6x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores. All clocked up to 2.2 GHz. Integrates a Cat-13 LTE Modem (4G) and a ARM Mali-G57 MP2 graphics card. Compared to the older Helio G96, the G99 is manufactured in the more recent 6nm process and clocks higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.78":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


Blackview:

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).


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
