    With the way the SD625 sips power (on the ZenFone 3, the Moto Z Play, etc), the battery life on this should be awesome.

    I'm definitely digging the Blade V8 Pro, I think I'm going to get one as my backup to my Axon 7. Then I'll put it through its paces and see if it will become my daily driver or stay as my backup. Must say that I'm loving the specs though, and from the pictures I've seen it looks to be running close to stock Android and not MiFavor which to me is awesome. Too bad my Axon 7 is running MiFavor ....

  • benkoresbenkores Staten Island, NYPosts: 471 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    It actually is running MiFavor. You can tell

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,377 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Yep, It's MiFavor.

  • TEXASMADE1978TEXASMADE1978 United StatesPosts: 704 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Well that definitely killed my vibe towards it buying it    

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,377 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm reserving comment to see how many bugs there are with it.  I don't mind MiFavor, I just want it to work well.  And it doesn't on the A7.  The mini isn't bad.

  • TEXASMADE1978TEXASMADE1978 United StatesPosts: 704 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    True, MiFavor on the Axon 7 has not been to my liking but everything else has been great about the phone. So I will give ZTE a shot to rectify the problems and I'll give the Blade V8 Pro a fair chance.

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,377 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I've got 2 Blade V8 Pros on the way ​ so my fingers are crossed!

  • TEXASMADE1978TEXASMADE1978 United StatesPosts: 704 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I've got 1 on the way , so I've got my fingers crossed as well. It was too good of an offer to pass up. The worst case scenario is I don't like it and return it, and the best case scenario is I love it and got a nice phone for a great price. #SoWhatsThaWhatsThaWhatsThaScenario

    I love this phone for it's build quality and reliable performance and battery life. The monochrome feature of the dual camera is really neat.

  • TEXASMADE1978TEXASMADE1978 United StatesPosts: 704 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Working good here as well, i don't think it's going to replace my A7 as my daily driver but it has been really solid. The camera is pretty cool, I like the dual camera set up
