Reviews for the ZTE Blade V8 Pro

ZTE Blade V8 Pro review: Lots of smartphone for little price
Source: Talk Android English
When it comes down to it, the ZTE Blade V8 Pro isn’t a bad phone. There’s not too much that makes it stand out from the rest of the crowd, except for the price. On Amazon, you can get all of this for a meager $230 — that’s easily the most impressive part of the phone. For the hardware you’re getting, you really can’t find something similar at that price point, possibly less depending on what other retailers are charging, specials going on or any discounts that might be happening.

60% ZTE Blade V8 Pro Review: A phone that attempts to deliver everything you want for under $230
Source: Neowin English
The Blade V8 Pro is a phone that has a lot of potential. On paper, it offers the perfect package of price and specifications. But, like many things that look good on paper, the Blade V8 Pro just doesn't live up to expectations. Now, I understand this is a $289.98 device, but there are couple things that you just can't get wrong on a smartphone in 2017, and one of those things is the camera. But first the positive.

70% ZTE Blade V8 Pro review: A decent phone that would be better off with a single camera

That said, at $230 there’s going to be some give and take. And for the price, this is a good enough phone for young kids, tweens, and teens. Or simply for someone who doesn’t want too much from a phone.

80% ZTE Blade V8 Pro Review: The Best Budget Phone Available
Source: Tom's Guide English
Right now, the ZTE Blade V8 Pro and the Honor 6X are easily the cream of the budget phone crop, so much so that choosing between the two is difficult. Both phones have bright, 5.5-inch, full-HD screens, along with dual rear cameras and built-in fingerprint readers. They also share the same flaw in that they're shipping with an outdated version of Android.

ZTE Blade V8 Pro Review

It's not the perfect budget phone, but it hits a whole lot of critical stops on the way to that goal. With another few tweaks here and there, ZTE's next mid-ranger could easily change our expectations for the sort of quality we can hope to get from one very affordable smartphone.

As far as CES 2017 is concerned, there's a definite trend that dual cameras are making the headlines. We'll see if users appreciate the added benefit of altering the focus post-shooting. In any case, the competition in this particular segment is a sure way to make dual-cameras something customers would expect in a modern smartphone.

ZTE Blade V8 Pro Review: An Incredible Budget Smartphone That Could Reign This Year
Source: iTech Post English
Furthermore, the ZTE Blade V8 Pro is running Android Marshmallow out of the box, which is something extraordinary for a budget phone. In short, we´re talking about a mobile device that has all the characteristics of a flagship killer, and it wouldn't be a huge surprise if it ends up being considered as one of the greatest Chinese smartphones in 2017.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
