BLU Tank Xtreme Pro New Smartphone!

BLU Tank Xtreme Pro is a phone that is very durable for a low price. BLU is a company producing many new phones. Let’s see what this one has.

Main specs: 5.0 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 720 x 1280 pixels screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, Mediatek MT6737 Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali-T720 GPU, 16GB Internal storage, 2GB of RAM, microSD card support up to 64GB, 8MP Primary camera, 5MP Secondary camera, microUSB 2.0 and 4300mAh non removable battery!

The first thing that stands out with Tank Xtreme Pro is the massive battery in mAh! It reminds me about Blackview and DOOGEE phones. The other cool thing is it comes with IP68 certification. So it’s dust and waterproof over 1.5 meter under water for 30 minutes.

It’s a very thick phone which could be good to know, 13.9mm thickness. The SIM size is nano. The weight is not too much for the large battery just 206 grams. Something I don’t like is how it lacks a fingerprint sensor.

This is a phone that also support LTE network speeds. In terms of video record the max resolution is 720p at 30fps. Other things you get is a loudspeaker and Bluetooth 4.0. I really hope they update this device to Android 8.0 Oreo eventually but since it’s a low cost device it may not happen.

In terms of design this mobile comes with 3 buttons on front side below the screen that are capacitive. This phone reminds me about Acer Predator laptop in design. It really has a nice bump around the sides. The back side it comes with looks very futuristic.

Another cool thing is that Tank Xtreme Pro comes with a case and earphones in the box. Something that you usually don’t get with new phones. Usually waterproof phones cost 300 euro at least from premium brands. So it’s good alternatives like this exists.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro New Smartphone!

Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is the most high end J phone for 2017. There also exist a J7 Max variant. Let’s go into the specs that you get with this edition.

Main features: 5.5 inch Display, Super AMOLED Screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, Exynos 7870 Octa Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, Cortex A-53 cores, Mali-T830 MP1 GPU, microSD card extend up to 256GB, 32/64GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, 13MP Primary camera, 13MP Secondary Selfie camera and 3600mAh battery!

The first thing that impress me here is the large internal battery. You get more mAh than Galaxy Note 8 has. For just a third of the price. With Samsung’s new J series phones for 2017 they upgraded from plastic to aluminium build. This makes Galaxy J7 Pro both feel more premium and more durable than a glass build. On Samsung’s A series phones they stick to glass.

What’s good to know about this phone is that you don’t get any IP rating as you get with the A series. But it does come with Always-on display feature. The weight of this device is 181 grams so pretty low. And the screen is pretty much standard size.

You still can find a 3.5mm audio jack. In terms of aperture on the cameras on the rear you get F/1.7 and on front you get F/1.9. The lower the better. Just as with Samsung’s non plastic phones you cannot remove the battery in this edition.

Good to know that Galaxy J7 Pro comes with LTE data speeds. And it’s pretty slim just 8mm thickness. You get FM Radio on the inside. And GPS even comes with GLONASS support and BDS.

The colours it exist in are: Black, Blue, Gold and Rose Gold! You can play music for 91 hours. On the front side you also find a fingerprint sensor. I wish it was installed on rear side.

Cubot Note Plus New Smartphone!

Cubot Note Plus is a new affordable low-range Android phone that is a little bit more affordable than the new Xiaomi Redmi 5. Let’s go and look into the specs of this hardware.

Main specs: 5.2-inch FHD Display, 1920×1080 pixels screen, 424PPI, Blue notification light, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6737T Chipset, Quad-core Processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali-T720 MP2 GPU, 32GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, 128GB Card extend MicroSD support, Dual Micro SIM Card Dual Standby, Plastic Shell Material, 4G Connectivity Speeds and 3.5mm Earphone port!

In terms of cameras on Cubot Note Plus you get first a 16.0MP front facing camera with the specs: Fixed Focus, 5P Lens and 50mA soft flashlight! I like the high resolution. Perfect for taking Instagram selfies.

The back camera comes with 16.0MP lens and with the specs: Sony sensor, Auto focus, 5P Lens, F/2.2 aperture and 1A flashlight.

This phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor on the rear side. In terms of thickness it has 8.5mm. The weight is only 166 grams. The battery is 2800mAh. Which is nice for the low price of the phone. But it would be nicer if it had at least 3500mAh. DOOGEE has even phones with 5000mAh at this low price range. A cool thing with the battery is that you can detach it.

Cubot Note Plus comes with a nice rounded design. The camera on the rear side is centered to create a nice symmetry design. I enjoy it a lot the large TF card you can insert. This will be perfect if you like watching tons of TV shows or movies on the go. Or if you are a music listener that wants a large offline music library. Great if you are traveling around a lot. The Mali GPU will be great for gaming experiences with games that require a powerful GPU.

Nubia Z9 Elite Edition Keeps up the Famous Premium Design!

Nubia Z9 Elite Edition has an edge-to-edge bezel less screen. It leaves some space on top and bottom and features a home button with classic Nubia tiny style.

Main specs: 5.2 Inch display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Chipset, Octa-core processor 4x cortex A57 clocked at 2.0GHz and 4x cortex A53 clocked at 1.5GHz, Adreno 430 GPU, AK4961 HiFi Audio chips and 4G connectivity.

The special thing about Z9 Elite Edition is the perfect close detail and the full metal middle frame + no border design. It features 0.7mm 31 degree slim highlights chamfering. On both sides you get double sided 2.5D glass.

The SHARP display is FHD and has screen tech CGS with 90% saturation and screen resolution of 1920×1080.

The camera you get inside is first a SONY 16.0MP OIS rear camera and SONY 8.0MP front facing camera. It comes with Nubia NEO vision 5.1. I like how the rear camera has an elegant red round border.

The deeper specs on the rear camera is: f/2.0 aperture, Blue glass IR filter and 6 Chip precision optical lens. You can tweak the white balance on various points when taking a new photo.

The phone comes with a premium high-end design that combines both metal and glass. So it will compete with iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 in feel in hand.

The Android version is also a little bit old for late 2017. It’s only running on Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Another thing that’s interesting about Z9 Elite Edition is the heavy weight 192 grams and 8.9mm thickness so it will have a premium heavy feel in hand.

The battery size is 2900mAh which isn’t super impressive but nice for a Nubia device. Most people buying Nubia does it for the premium feel in hand and unique look.
