Konka R8A

Like all Konka's smartphones, the Konka R8A is an affordably-priced handset suitable for folks who don't need bleeding-edge features such as professional-grade cameras or AI-powered processors. However, unlike many of its competitors, it's been styled to look a million bucks, despite its low-bucks price.

Design

  • Looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.
  • Android 7.0 is a robust and feature-packed operating system.

Camera

  • Average camera specs for a budget smartphone, but still sufficient for basic photography.
  • Beauty mode could be a selling point for selfie lovers.

Performance

  • The MediaTek MT6737 is a capable budget processor.
  • 1GB of RAM can be a significant bottleneck for many applications.

Battery

  • The 2,200mAh battery is on the smaller side for these specs.
  • A full day of battery should be feasible under light use.
