Blackview's latest offering is one for those looking for a cheap phone with decent software and adequate battery performance. The A60 features a 6-inch HD display, dual rear cameras, and a beefy 4080 mAh battery.

Chinese OEM Blackview is generally known for its rugged devices, but the company, over the past year or thereabouts, has diversified into producing more mainstream devices. The latest device to fly the company's flags is the Blackview A60, an Android Go phone.

Like all Android Go devices, the A60 is an entry-level budget phone, and it comes with a specification sheet matching that tag. The A60 sports a 6-inch IPS HD+ display. At the top of the display is a waterdrop notch with an unspecified selfie camera providing face unlock. At the back of a device is a 13 MP + 13 MP dual camera setup.

Under the hood is a Mediatek MT6580A—undoubtedly the A60's weakest point, as that SoC is extremely dated at this point. There's a paltry 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. A 4080 mAh battery keeps the device going, and Blackview claims to have a "flash charging design" for lower charge times.

The A60 runs on Android 8.1 Go out of the box.
