The budget smartphone scene has become increasingly competitive with the introduction of premium features on less expensive smartphones. The ZTE Blade V8 Pro is a good example of a bargain smartphone that has features comparable to devices that are priced much higher than it is.
Simple Yet Polished Design
The smartphone has an understated design that is simplistic yet stylish, giving off an expensive look way beyond its price range. The Blade V8 Pro sports a polished aluminium frame with chamfered edges and a textured covering at the back of the phone that provides more grip. The bezel of the phone is extremely thin, a feature that is until recently only found on many flagships.
Bright Display that Delivers Accurate Colour Reproduction
Although the Blade V8 Pro’s does not have an OLED display, the 5.5-inch Full-HD screen is more than sufficient for a smartphone of its calibre, offering vivid colours and better contrast than expected. With ZTE opting to use an IPS-LCD display means that the phone is not overly-pixelated, delivering 400ppi pixel density to its users. Colours are not over-saturated that it will hurt the eyes. The screen is also bright enough to deliver decent outdoor visibility under direct sunlight.
Twice the Fun with Dual Rear Cameras
The Blade V8 Pro also boasts a dual-camera setup for its primary cameras, another feature that is seen on many top-of-the-line smartphones today. The phone has two 13MP shooters at the back and an 8MP shooter in front. When you are snapping photos with the rear cameras, you can select from one of three options: Bokeh, Monocolour, and Monochrome. The latter two options take black-and-white photos or photos with selective colours, whereas Bokeh mode stimulates varying depths of field.
Impressive Power for Smooth Performance
The ZTE Blade V8 Pro comes with a 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which enables the smartphone to deliver a better performance than its peers in the same category. You will not face any slowing down even when watching videos or playing demanding games such as Star Wars Force Arena and Asphalt 8.
