ZTE Blade V8 Shows Slight Improvements Over the Blade V7

19/5/2017
Reymart Sarigumba

As a follow-up to last year’s ZTE Blade V7, the Blade V8 only shows slight improvements but still keeps many features found on current flagship smartphones for a shoestring price tag. The Blade V8 appears to be black on the front with well-polished aluminum trimmings and gray sides. The front façade also sports an 8 MP front snapper found on the upper right-hand side. On the left, beside the front-facing camera is the earpiece speaker. The Blade V8 also follows the bezel-less trend found on high-end flagship smartphones as it has very thin edges. It also has a physical home button which also functions as a fingerprint scanner. Its other navigation buttons are capacitive which are found beside the home button. They cast small round glows under the glass.  

Found on the Blade V8’s left side is the SIM/microSD slot which can hold two sim cards. While on the right side, there is the volume switch and the power button. One good thing about the buttons is that they are responsive and feels nice in the hand. There is also 3.5mm headphone jack found on the top of the Blade V8. Along with it are the sensor for the mic and antennas on either side of the handset. The bottom of the smartphone houses a USB Type-C connector, a speaker, and antenna bands like the ones found on the top.

On the back of the handset comes a black textured covering, which feels nice in the hand.  It also has the 13 MP dual rear sensors with dual flash, an upgrade over last year’s single 13 MP sensor. Inside the Blade V8 comes a Snapdragon 435 chipset, a step-up from the V7’s Mediatek MT6753. It is also integrated with a more capacious battery of 2730 mAH compared to last year’s 2500 mAh. As of writing, the Blade V8 is already out in shops across South East Asia. It costs 999 RM in Malaysia (which converts to 320 SGD, 1800 HKD, and 11470 PHP in the Philippines.

ZTE Blade V8 Pro Hong Kong – Performing Beyond Expectations

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.
