In our smartphone review today, we feature the CBSKY Blackview Alife P1 PRO, an Android phone with a large screen available in 2016.
You probably haven’t heard of the CBSKY Blackview Alife P1 PRO, and that goes also for the brand itself, Blackview. With Chinese factories making it extremely easy for virtually any business to produce OEM models, the number of mobile phone brands has rose multiple times in the past few years, and that is especially good for customers, and prices of these less known brands tend to be much more appealing, to say the least.
CBSKY Blackview Alife P1 PRO Hardware
Like most of the other devices proposed by the brand, the Alife P1 PRO has a large screen, that rivals with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and other big devices, although in terms of hardware it lags behind by obvious reasons: it costs much less.
Coming in North America unlocked, the Alife P1 PRO runs on Android 5.0 and has a quad core processor (MTK6735 1.0 Ghz) which also powers a broad number of devices in this price range. It has 2 GB ram and 16 GB of storage. It doesn’t bring any special feature that could be marked as too good or too poor, delivering exactly what you can expect for big smartphones under 200 dollars.
When it comes to battery life, it has a capacity of 2600 mAh, which is quite good, considering that the Galaxy Note 5 has 3000 mAh. In case of big devices like the Blackview Alife P1 PRO, it is crucial do have a battery with decent capacity as its big screen is certainly a battery eater.
It is a dual sim device, and there are a number of reports that it runs without problems in most of the major US network providers.
