HOMTOM ZOJI Z8 is a new smartphone that almost sounds like it could be a Galaxy S8 copycat because of the Z8 name but it’s not! In fact this looks more like a Galaxy Active rugged device. It has some nice specs let’s go over it.
Main specs: 5.0 Inch display, IP68 Certification, Waterproof, 4250mAh Battery, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, MTK6750 Chipset, 1.5GHz Processor that is an Octa-core variant and it’s a 4G powered smartphone!
They are marketing ZOJI Z8 by referring to Darth Vader Star Wars which is pretty entertaining. Probably because of it’s IP durability and protective design.
The front screen comes with corning gorilla glass knife scratch screen protection. It’s a multi touch display great for games that requires many touches at the same time.
Something I highly enjoy with this smartphone is how it comes with the ARM Mali T860 GPU which is known for performing well on Android games. Combine that with the octa-core processor and you get the perfect combination. The screen is a bit smaller than what we see on the current high-end Android smartphones for 2017.
The battery inside is very large and will be great for watching lots of movies or browsing the internet. I like how the phone comes with a fingerprint sensor on the rear side. That is the best place to put it and not in the home button!
You can expand the storage with a TF card up to 128GB! One very cool thing I like about this phone is how it comes in a Vibrant Orange edition. You usually don’t see orange phones that much! The other two colours are Army Green and Space Black.
ZOJI Z8 is also running on the latest version of Android. Android 7.0 Nougat! You get two cameras inside: 13.0MP rear camera with F2.0 and 8.0MP front camera with F2.2. The lower aperture usually the better.
It’s a very heavy phone 208 grams weight and not slim at all. It’s thickness is 12.5mm! But it does come with cool features like split-screen mode! You also get OTA updates and OTG support.
