I look at the packaging reminds me of the days when i used to unbox huawei devices. I mean the ones before the p20 pro before the boxes became so much smaller and honestly, in my opinion, i prefer this packaging over just say the latest iphone the latest samsung, because i feel that it adds a lot more value, a lot more class and a Lot more experienced when unboxing the device, so i got this actually at a pretty good price. It was going for around 290 odd ringgit at the flash sale a couple of days back and considering the price of this phone like about three to four years back this one used to retail for a minimum of one thousand six hundred. Ninety nine buying a phone like this, a new brand, of course metoo – makes apps but, however, bring into consideration that this is one of their very first devices. I wouldn’t shell out so much money for a great import set or we call it an ap set in malaysia because, if i’m going to spend almost 1 700 ringgit and above, i would definitely want to have local warranty. But at that time local warranty, wasn’t available. But, however, this is a local made to malaysia warranty unit and uh spending so much less and having local warranty, i mean that’s, a no brainer at all, all right, so let’s take a look at the packaging. You have a very nice matte black box.
So on the front here you get a sort of a rose gold, embossed shape of the device, so you can see m8 ma2 smartphone and some chinese wordings all right. So take a look to the side. You can see metoo branding i’m sure on both sides. Yes, okay, and on the back, you can see the configuration i got this in. So this is the 64 gb version. Color is ivory. All right, let’s take a look at the unboxing experience right so unfolding the sleeve right so on the inside. You can see me to m8, okay and on the right side. Let me unfold this very interesting packaging i’m trying to fit this on the camera right here you get the sim ejector tool. You get a qr code, in fact, i’m, not sure what that is, and then you get what comes in the box, so you can see where you can pause it really for yourself, so all in mandarin and then finally, you have something in english. So this is the warranty terms and conditions, so yes very elaborate packaging and i do like this kind of packaging. It gives me a good feeling when i’m unboxing a device all right. So here you get a nice microfiber cloth in fact embossed microfiber cloth. I do like all this attention to detail in the packaging and i really miss the times when we used to have much more stuff to unbox. Alright, so let’s focus on the device itself, all right so right here we can see the device.
I have this in white and also rose gold. Of course they call it ivory. Very nice we’ll get back to the phone a bit later. I actually did uh try to power this on and the phone is basically dead, because considering that this phone has been sitting there for a couple of years now so let’s take out the top portion, all right, let’s start with the first box. So this is the case. Obviously let’s open it and take a quick look. So when it comes to china devices, usually you get everything that you need to start off. So, as you expected, this is the screen protector. Let me try to get these out of the packaging, so you have a screen protector already in the box, so you do not have to go online and start looking for a screen protector and probably take a couple of weeks to arrive. So you have a screen protector to get. You all started, and i think this screen protector is adequate and last but not least, you have a tpu case, a soft tpu case, which is good enough i’m, not going to ask for too much all right. So right here you have the usb type c cable. This phone, however, supports usb type c, which i consider um pretty up to date. Of course, it’s not the fastest charging speed, but it’s good enough better than micro usb any day. All right so let’s see what comes in this box.
All you get is a usbc cable, which i have stands around i’m, going to open that i’m going to try to keep this boxing as quick as possible, all right guys. So we have the power adapter right here: i’m, not sure whether you can see the wattage. All right so right here we can see some chinese wordings. You can see m8, you can see the huge top and bottom bezels. Of course the bottom bezel contains your home button, something like the iphone and two capacitive buttons as well on the right and left alright. So, on the top let’s take a closer look. We have the noise cancellation microphone as well as your sim card slot. This does not have expandable storage, so if you 64 gb is not enough for you that’s it, so i wish they actually had the 128gb with sheldon another 50 to 60 ringgit if they had all right. So on the bottom, we have the primary microphone. 3X5 mm auxiliary port, which is, i mean very hard to find these days, and then we have a usbc charging port as well as speaker grille. So this is a mono speaker, setup you’re, not gon na expect dual speakers back then like four to five years back right. So on the front we get, i bet it’s a light sensor or a notification led i’m, not really sure about that. I get the grille as well, so in the center we get a 21 megapixel camera we’re, not mistaken, and then on the right side we get a selfie flash as well, and then we have a 5.
2 inch amoled panel i mean for 200 plus you’re, getting an Amoled panel and basically this phone i’m going to be using for social media and stuff like that, so more than adequate, and it does have some weight to it as well, so 170 grams. If you’re interested and take a look at the back, we have the same 21 megapixel camera that’s on the front, except on the rear. They have two and then you have two led flash so, which means that you get a very balanced and even image when you’re using the flash, which is pretty ingenious, something like the tcl plex, which i reviewed a couple of months back all right. So here you get the me too branding as well and basically that’s about it. On the side we get a selfie button, as well as the power button on the left. We get the volume, rocker usual affair and basically that’s about it. So this has a aluminum frame going around it sandwiched between glass. So what i’m very happy with the build quality is thin. It has some weight to it and it feels solid over in the hand and for this price range. I will take this over any other lenovo phone, for example, which feels like cheap plastic. So i think this, this quality is really really very good and i do like the feel of it. Alright. So on the inside we get the mediatek helio x20, which has a deca core, so it’s 10 cores.
Of course it sounds fancy, but back in the day, not so power efficient – and you know it’s a mediatek processor, so you’re not going to expect like snapdragon level performance. So this also has a 3000 m hour battery and it’s running on android 6.0 marshmallow. So you’re not going to expect like the latest android os, so this has bluetooth 4.1 as well. So what i think this phone is still very relevant in 2021 and considering the price i don’t think there’s anything much to complain about currently the price without flash sale. Promo is going for around 319 ringgit 319 to 20, excluding shipping yeah. The screen is a bit outdated, a bit small 5.2 inches we’re used to the six plus inches devices or screen size. When you consider the value for money, i think this phone is definitely the way to go all right, so there’s been a very quick unboxing. I do love packaging like this. Please brands bring back packaging like this. Of course, yes, storage wise when you ship it it’s, not so cost efficient, but when it comes to the user experience, i do like this kind of unboxings all right, so there’s been a very quick unboxing.
