Blackview A8 Max is a new phone that comes with some simple specs for a low price. This is great if you won’t be able to afford new Xiaomi Redmi 5. Let’s take a look at the specs you get inside this device.
Main specs on A8 Max: Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 5.0 Inch display, MTK6737 Chipset, Clocked at 1.3GHz, Quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal Storage, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, Gravity Sensor, External memory 64GB support, 8.0MP Back Camera and 5.0MP Front Facing Camera.
Dual SIM Dual Standby support is great so you can use two SIM cards at the same time. One thing that can be a bit of a disappointment is how it doesn’t run on latest Android 7.0 Nougat. This phone also comes with Mali-T720 GPU. They saved in a bit when it came to the amount of RAM only 2GB might be a bit on the small side if you are planning on multi-tasking a lot.
The battery is 3000mAh which is not too bad just a little bit below Note 8s battery. You also get 3.5mm earphone jack. You have a cool feature where you can double tap to wake up the phone. Something you also can do with LG smarphones. I’m not sure why not all smartphone companies have adopted this feature.
A8 Max has a full CNC metal frame which will be excellent to give you a premium feel for a low price. You usually only get plastic based phones for this low price.
I really like the camera design on the rear 8.0MP camera it’s in a nice box on the left back side. it looks extremely well designed. This phone comes in champagne gold, pearl white and stardust grey colour editions. The processor is even a 64 bit variant which is very impressive! Just wish they put in 3GB of RAM as well.
