  1. Without the support of 4G networks Blackview A8 and with the Android 5.1 operating system, it would be hard to compete with a number of state employees, for example with Uhans A101, and whose battery capacity 400mAh more than on

  2. Not impressed ..seriously these features are of no worth if you are giving this small battery …it is better to go for DOOGEE X10 ..ITS battery is impressive because in today’s world 2050mah battery is a bad option … plus the build quality of DOOGEE X10 is good according to price !!!
