Reviews for the Zopo Speed 8

Zopo Speed 8 review: Doesn’t justify the price tag
Source: The Indian Express English version
Zopo Speed 8 doesn’t offer value for money. In our Antutu benchmark test results, the phone was ranked below OnePlus 3 and Xiaomi Mi 5 which are cheaper than the Speed 8. Buy Zopo Speed 8 if you really have to or go for OnePlus 3 which has a superior camera and a great design and costs at least Rs 2,000 less.

80% Zopo Speed 8 Smartphone Review: A Smartphone With A Deca-Core Processor
Source: PC Quest English version
No doubt the Zopo speed 8 is a powerful smartphone that features Deca (ten) core processor (MediaTek Helio X20 processor) but overall the phone is not equivalent to its price. The camera is average and the storage is limited to 32 GB. One can look for some other options such as OnePlus 3 which is lower in price with better design and features.

60% Zopo Speed 8 review: Deca-Core alone doesn’t justify 30,000 tag
Source: Gadgets Now English version
There's nothing exceptional about the phone, apart from the deca-core processor, which is obviously not used to its full capabilities. Its specifications only seem to look good on paper, which are available on any budget smartphone. For enthusiasts, there are other good brands doing much better in terms of performance, design and build. The Speed 8 is definitely not the best buy today.

ZOPO Speed 8 review
Source: GSM Arena English version
The phone feels incomplete in in some ways and there is still a lot of room for software improvement, which hopefully, ZOPO will take up. If all the bugs get ironed out you would still end up with a very solid $300 device. But today's competitive mobile market requires that the company acts quickly or customers will move on in search of pastures greener.

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.
