A year ago, Walton launched their budget killer gaming smartphone Primo RX7 Mini with the Gamers' Choice tagline. The Primo RX7 Mini has shaken the smartphone market across the country and gained the trust of many people. Everyone had high hopes for the next successor in this series, And Walton did not let that hope be disappointed at all! Walton has introduced a new smartphone called Primo RX8 Mini in the country's market. Focusing on gaming, this phone has some breathtaking features. Read on to find the Walton Primo RX8 Mini Review.
Key Features of Walton Primo RX8 Mini
Primo RX8 Mini comes with a 2.5D glossy glass on the front as well as back. The glass is scratch resistant, and it saves your phone from any unwanted scratches. It tends to continue the trend of its predecessor, and 8.4mm stylish slim corning gorilla glass gives an aesthetic look and feel. Moreover, the glossy black color makes the phone elegant too. The best thing about the glass coating is that it doesn't attract dirt either. Therefore, the phone always remains clean.
It has volume buttons on the right as well as the power button. The security slider remains on the left, along with the sim/micro-SD slot. The bottom of the phone features a speaker, mic, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USD type C. On the top part of the phone, you will find LED notification light and a noise cancellation microphone.
Walton Primo RX8 Mini’s display featuring 2340 by 1080p resolution is good enough to enjoy heavy-graphics gaming as well as a multimedia experience. It offers a 6.3" IPS FHD display, which is typical for the budget Walton phones. Of course, compared with the same phone, the price is really low. For example, a smartphone with the same screen type is 5-8 times more expensive.
Moreover, the 16cm 6.3-inch FHD+ Display is considered as one of a kind that makes everything look real on the screen. Further, the 19:9 aspect ratio will help you to use the phone in portrait mode efficiently. Besides, 2.5D curved glass gives a fabulous outlook. The captive touch screen with corning gorilla glass protection can give you a smooth user experience.
Primo RX8 Mini comes with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 6 series, which is specially designed for the mobile platform. It increases the phone's performance as well as efficiency. Therefore, it can get your superior mobile user experience. The 2.2GHz Octa-Core Processor; Kryo 260 64-bit and Qualcomm® Adreno™ 512 GPU is great for mobile games. So, you can play all the latest high-performance phones easily.
On the other hand, the previous version came with a 2.0 GHz Octa-Core Processor (16nm). Getting a Snapdragon™ 6 series processor under Tk. 12,000 should be a gem as most of the brands cannot offer at this low price.
RX8 comes with only one variation, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Furthermore, you can also expand the memory to 256GB through the micro-SD slot. However, it is advisable not to use more than a 128GB memory card. Using a high memory SD card slows the phone down. On the other hand, the RX7 offered 4GB with a 32GB version. So, RX8's 64GB memory with the expandable memory feature can help you to play any latest games, take a lot of pictures, and record videos.
The camera provides three different sensors which can get you three different experiences. A 12MP Sony IMX 486 sensor works perfectly with a dedicated 8MP Wide-angle sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. The depth sensor leads to taking amazing portraits. Usually, the triple lens is used for taking photos in the triple mood.
Moreover, the Sony 12MP IMX can bring every detail. The wider 8MP camera sensor gets you a wider view and takes eye-catchy landscape shots. The 5MP depth sensor offers amazing portrait shots with the background blur. Nevertheless, the V-Drop notch of the RX8 mini features 13MP selfie camera with beautiful video features that can easily take confident shots.
The Primo RX8 mini brings a unique feature named security slider, which has three separate modes to allow access or deny access to your camera as well as microphone based on your need. Through the slider button, you can enhance your phone's security.
It also features a tap to security option. You can set a fingerprint and set your own security guards against the intruders. Moreover, it also comes with super-fast fingerprint readers. Besides, it also comes with face unlock features. So, it is obvious that your Primo RX8 Mini gives you ultimate security from very high expectations.
Battery and Charging
Despite all the features, it doesn't come with a heavy battery. It comes with a 3600mAh battery, which may not be good enough for those who want to spend most of their time gaming. But Walton has covered it up by providing a 10W charger out of the box, which supports an 18W fast charging capability. So, fast charging will definitely save your time.
