Blu VIVO 8L Review

Although its specs won’t brush your socks off, the gadget has sufficient power in the engine for the typical client. It sports a 5.3-inch show with a Full HD goal and is controlled by the MediaTek 6753 chipset. An enormous 4,000 mAh battery keeps the light on, which is great because of the size of the gadget. For correlation, the Galaxy S8 Plus has a 3,500 mAh battery, while the one inside the LG V30 has a limit of 3,300 mAh — the two gadgets have a bigger impression than the Vivo 8L.

The Vivo 8L has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of capacity that you can grow yet just for 64 extra GB. The gadget has a metal body, and a back-mounted unique mark scanner, and is viable with GSM organizations. You’ll track down a 13 MP camera with an LED streak and an f/2.0 opening on the back and a selfie snapper that sports a 20 MP sensor front and center.


It’s promptly obvious that the VIVO 8L is a kin of the 8. This less expensive variation, luckily, keeps up with the metal uni-body packaging that the first had. Close by, you get that cool metal inclination alongside a smooth, premium completion. It gets a few fingerprints, yet our dim dark (practically dark) model conceals them well.

A surprising change occurred with the unique mark scanner. BLU moved it from the front to the back, in the same way as other producers today are selecting. It’s roundabout and is set right under the back camera. The completion on the sensor coordinates precisely with the metal encompassing, however, your finger can undoubtedly track down it because of being marginally recessed. As we would like to think, the telephone looks a lot cleaner with this change. The front has capacitive route buttons, yet with Google’s symbols for Recent Apps, Home, and Back.

It’s decent that BLU pre-introduces a screen defender on the showcase. Especially on this telephone, its bent glass configuration allows the screen to stay uncovered and powerless. You won’t have any desire to set it face down without a screen defender, even with its Gorilla Glass 3 insurance.


The VIVO 8L figures out how to hold a similar essential camera as its greater sibling – the 13MP Sony IMX258 sensor. We tracked down this camera to perform sufficiently in our VIVO 8 survey, yet nothing to fundamentally think of home about. It’s essential to realize that it misses the mark on optical picture adjustment that is presently normal in better quality telephones. Its f/2.0 focal point opening is good, and Auto HDR is ready to assist with those precarious lighting circumstances.

In sufficiently bright circumstances, the nature of our shots is awesome at this cost range. Detail from the 16MP catch can be seen from large-scale to-scene shots. Inside in lower light, things can immediately become uproarious, as well as over-featuring or over-obscuring in higher powerful reach circumstances – things expected for a mid-range cell phone camera (taking into account the VIVO 8L is estimated more towards the low-end).

We should refer to that BLU redesigned the front camera. We thought a 16MP catch goal was at that point viewed as on the VIVO 8; presently there’s an incredible 20MP selfie shooter there. Indeed, you heard that right. The front camera has 7MP more than the primary camera. BLU is truly focused on selfies. Also, that spec sure means extraordinary picture quality. Indeed, even very good quality Androids (with their measly 5MP or 8MP cameras) won’t contrast in respect with detail caught.


Like on the VIVO 8 (and most financial plan telephones), the 8L is controlled by a MediaTek chipset. It has a somewhat down-timed form of MediaTek’s 67XX series – a 1.3GHz MT6753 versus the 2.0GHz MT6755 chipset on the VIVO 8. However, it’s as yet an octa-center processor with 64-digit support. Slam is likewise somewhat thumped at still a skilled 3GB.

As envisioned, these negligible changes truly do turn out to be little result in certifiable use. Route all through the VIVO 8L is essentially as responsive as we would need. We weren’t the least bit left wanting for more strength.

Blu VIVO 8L Review

Of course, it won’t exactly fly like top-end Android leaders, yet entirely it’s truly quite close. Presumably the most urgent downsize was the drop from 64GB to 32GB of interior stockpiling. In any case, luckily, the microSD extension is as yet upheld (up to 64GB).

One of the most amazing things is that the battery limit was scarcely moved by the VIVO 8 – decreased exclusively by 10mAh. Combined with the VIVO 8L’s diminished power parts, we accomplished some commendable battery duration details. The 8L can undoubtedly endure as the day progressed, and reliably for two days with moderate use. Battery duration is likely the greatest win of the VIVO 8L.


BLU pleasantly keeps awake to date with Android’s on-goings. On the VIVO 8L, we’re taking a gander at the Android 7.0 (Nougat) fabricate. We appreciate that BLU’s product changes aren’t weighty. The UI still to a great extent seems to be stock Android. The Recent Apps merry-go-round and application cabinet, for example, look unadulterated. The split-screen performing various tasks capability additionally fills in as it does on the stock. There is some application bulge pre-introduced, however, we like that BLU utilizes Google applications where relevant.

Notwithstanding, the UI changes that BLU made are practically all sketchy. One of our greatest problems was the notice drop-down. The Quick Settings menu is by all accounts eliminated. We made a lot of endeavors to attempt to inspire it to show and fizzled.

There’s not an obvious explanation to do this. So every time we need to change the splendor, we want to dive into the Settings menu. What’s more, discussing which, BLU’s custom Settings menu design is a wreck. Why not simply keep things how they are available on Android, particularly when it increases the value of progress? We likewise don’t have the foggiest idea why Nougat’s up/down swipe on the Home screen to get to the application cabinet was returned to a button.

However, not every one of the changes is awful. BLU’s expansion of a few helpful motions is liberal, for example, a twofold tap to wake or potentially the capacity to draw an example on the screen while initiating a function is off. Additionally, there’s an additional tab in the Settings called “Highlights” that give easy routes to the telephone’s valuable capacities. One of these is the two-level power-saving mode.


The screen size of the VIVO 8L gets a slight drop to 5.3″. The goal is likewise thumped to 720P, yet the effect from the VIVO 8 is negligible because of the size decrease. No, this won’t come near the sharpness of top-end Androids, yet it’s not the slightest bit a fluffy wreck. The screen arrangement is good and positively takes care of business.

This is an IPS LCD board, so you will not get the various pop and clear review points that OLED boards give. All things considered, the picture quality is safeguarded at even outrageous survey points, with just a slight brilliance shift. The best thing about this board is that it gets remarkably splendid. Around half brilliance was a lot for us by and large, and open-air perceivability in the daylight is good.

Last Thoughts

To summarize, the BLU VIVO 8L surely keeps up with the line’s value-for-the-money predominance. It even enhances it two or three different ways, with somewhat better battery duration results and an overhauled front camera. Our main issue considering the low cost of this telephone is the superfluous programming changes to the Android OS, however, it’s not extreme. We can without much of a stretch suggest the VIVO 8L at a retail of $200.
