Xiaolajiao T8 Plus launched with 16GB Storage: Review, Specs and Price

Xiaolajiao T8 Plus: Review

Xiaolajiao T8 Plus has been launched in China as an update to the T8 smartphone that was released last year. The T8 received lots of positive reviews last year as a budget smartphone.

Well, Xiaolajiao has finally unveiled the T8 Plus which retails like a budget smartphone but packs a bunch as well. Enjoy 16GB storage, 2GB RAM among other features. Care to know more? Stay with me.

Design

Xiaolajiao T8 Plus

Simple and elegant, the Xiaolajiao T8 Plus sports an overall plastic body that’s comfortable to hold. There were rumours the Plus version will come with a fingerprint scanner. Well, looks like the company didn’t really care about that to begin with. A vertical format exudes at the rear, starting with the rear camera, then the LED flash follows.

The Xiaolajiao logo takes the place of the fingerprint scanner obviously. A rear loudspeaker sits at the bottom corner for quality music and bass. Turning over to the sides, it measures 9.15mm in thickness like most budget phones. You can get it in Gold and Silver colors only.

Display

Comes with huge top and bottom bezels, you might need to avoid this if you don’t like bezels. The bottom bezel houses the three navigation buttons, while the top has the selfie camera, speaker grille and ambient light sensor. Overall, the screen stretches up to 70.19% screen to body ratio which is quite alright for its price.

Focusing on the screen now, 5.5-inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen displays like a budget smartphone. The screen resolution pegs at 1280 x 720 pixels with 267 pixel per inch density for immersive visuals. It dishes out a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is more than enough to enjoy games and movies.

Hardware and Software

Under the hood is the Spreadtrum SC9832A chipset with a 64-bit CPU architecture and 4-cores of processor. The Quad-core processor reaches a clock speed of 1.5GHz with a 28nm process technology for a smooth ride. Handling graphics is the ARM Mali-400 MP2 graphics processor running at 512 MHz.

The Xiaolajiao T8 Plus runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with YunUI 5.1 skin on top. 2GB RAM space is available for multitasking and fast app launching. Store all your files in the 16GB internal storage space, you can upgrade up to 32GB using a memory card if you want.

Camera

The 8MP rear camera comes with a LED flash and captures 3K resolution images. With the Xiaolajiao T8 Plus you can only capture photographs with 3266 x 2449 pixels in dimension. Record videos of 720 pixels at 30 frames per second and take cute selfies with the 2MP selfie camera.

Battery

Powering the Xiaolajiao T8 Plus is a 2500mAh removable Li-Po battery with no fast charging technology. Even without the fast charging feature, it shouldn’t take more than 2.2 hours to fully charge up the battery from 0% to 100%.
