$70 Blackview Breeze looks like a mini OnePlus One


blackview breeze

Blackview are hoping to capture their own piece of the sub $100 Android phone market with the 4.5-inch Blackview Breeze which looks just like a mini OPO.

Chinese smartphones have come on a long way in recent years, and as hardware, design and build continue to improve we are seeing some killer phones for the mid-range and high-end segments of the market. Entry-level Chinese phones are also getting better all the time too, but to create sub $100 phones some designs do tend to be influenced on others.

Take the Blackview Breeze for example. This is an Android phone with 4.5-inch display, quad-core MT6582 chipset, 1GB RAM and 8 mega-pixel F2.0 main camera that can be bought online for only $70. Compare those specs to the type of sub $100 phone you will find in stores and it isn’t bad value for money.

Of course at this price range the phone is designed for someone who just needs a cheap phone rather than a cutting edge piece of kit, which is just what the little OnePlus One clone has to offer.

Like the real OPO the phone has a metal frame, comes in black or white, but get’s dual SIM support, a removable 2000mAh battery and space for a 32GB SD card.

        Haha I really laugh of comments like that. I try to wonder what people wants… For 70$ such specs are quite acceptable.

      I think the one plus looks ugly but mainly cause of its size, this looks very good to me.

      Their is a huge market for sub $100 phones especially in developing counties who aren’t as privileged as you or I. How do you think Xiaomi became a major player in the phone market? It was based almost entirely off the success of their budget Hongmi/Redmi phones. No longer did people have to choose between a flip phone or a feature phones at that price range, they could actually buy a decent smartphone. I could sell these like hot cakes in one of my sales territories in Cambodia.

    480ⅹ854 screen on 4.5″ is a deal breaker. Put in a 720p screen and make it 80$ and it would be much better. Oh, and also add 3G at 900 Mhz….

    In general, what should I take into account if I go for holiday in mainland China, and would happen to run into some nice phone in retail like Meizu MX4, or Umi Zero, Xiaomi etc. Would it be carrier locked to China Mobile or something? And what about the bandwidths, would the phone be working outside China in 3G networks, what information I should look for to figure it out? And would I be able to install the Google apps to it without rooting it with some totally different modifications like Cyanogen? (I like for example Meizu’s Android skin a lot, having owned one before and dont wanna get rid of it at all.) You know, to make it “normal” phone. 🙂 I live in South East Asia…

    Photo samples on web look pretty damn good, this is a nice little phone for the money. Unless better spec’ed older models can now be had for similar money, then this is hard to beat.
