Quick Review of Blackview A8 Max

Display of Blackview A8 Max is above average level. The pixel density is good at this price range. The HD resolution is good for power consumption even though it is not the best possible screen resolution. The CPU is just average mid-level performer. Only the price level justifies the inclusion of MT6737 processor.

The 2GB RAM and 16GB storage is good value addition and satisfies most of the users. The 2GB RAM is good for mid-level multitasking and gaming. The 8MP and 5MP cameras are average performers. The features along with cameras are making the images better. The battery of 3000mAh is good in paper. But we are not sure this 3000mAh battery is same as in other branded smartphones.
