Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB

ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB 's size

The "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" is 70mm wide, 143.5mm tall, and 8.9mm thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB", it weighs about 141g. The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB", while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB

The processing power of the "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" is, at 1.4GHz×8(OctaCore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB 's storage capacity

The "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The camera function of ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB

The "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The "ZTE Blade V8 Mini 16GB" comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.
