Are you looking for a 3GB RAM handset on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset?
When shopping for a smartphone, we tend to see cheap phones with excessive RAM. But, due to low-quality chipsets, they eventually frustrate us with performance.
Symphony has gained prominence for producing budget smartphones. Symphony became #1 smartphone brand in Bangladesh. However, the consumers of Symphony were always frustrated with low-end chipsets and camera infrastructures.
To please the existing customers and attract new customers as well, Symphony unveiled a couple of high-end smartphones. These smartphones contain everything a high-end smartphone should.
In this review article, I’m discussing one of those high-end smartphones manufactured by Symphony. And, the smartphone is Symphony ZVIII.
Symphony ZVIII is the latest flagship smartphone from Symphony.
Let’s find out what it packed:
Symphony ZVIII boasts premium feel. And, you will be impressed a lot with its great build quality. It can easily be considered as one of the most beautiful Symphony smartphones on the market.
Processor & Performance
Symphony ZVIII is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. 64-bit 1.4GHz octa-core processor ensures seamless performance. Symphony ZVIII is able to handle hefty multitasking and gaming requirements.
However, due to the lower version of Snapdragon chipset, you may experience lag when working with graphics-intensive tasks.
Symphony ZVIII comes with 3GB of RAM. The DDR3-type RAM delivers quite satisfactory multitasking performance.
Symphony ZVIII is equipped with 16GB of onboard memory, which can expanded up to 128GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot. The internal storage space of Symphony ZVIII is quite meagre when it comes to storing plenty of HD photos, videos and games.
Symphony ZVIII comes with a 5″ FHD IPS display. The Full HD and In-plane Switching display offers greater color accuracy, vibrance and saturation. But, the screen is not so large. It’s only a 5-inch screen.
Therefore, you may not enjoy the best viewing experience when it comes to watching movies. The display of Symphony ZVIII is slightly curved at the glass edges as it contains a 2.5D display.
