Some smartphone manufacturers aim for supreme style. In fact, the majority in the industry strives for that. However, there are unorthodox minds that strive to achieve military-grade toughness. ZOJI is one of those companies.
They’ve made splashes earlier this year with the Z6 and Z7 smartphone models. Now, it’s time for the next big thing – the ZOJI Z8.
They’ve also gone on an unusual route. ZOJI has decided to release their exclusive flagship over AliExpress only. What is an unorthodox decision for some, makes sense for others.
We saw an increase in such release, but that’s another facet of this peculiar and unique device. They’ve released their device for world shipping, at a cool $168.99.
With more than reasonable price and formidable set of features, the ZOJI Z8 deserves attention. It’s high time that the stigma around lesser-known smartphone companies is long gone. Let’s take a look at this vicious-looking device and the secrets it holds. In a somewhat monotonous market, ZOJI might have struck gold.
A vigorous and stylish device at the same time
Anyone remember those indestructible Land Rover phones? For those of you who are not familiar, that model was one of the biggest hits of the early 2000s. It was a survival kit in one small device. The S8 model was a wonder.
It had a batter that could last for a whole MONTH without charging. Other than that, it had a precise compass, anti-tracking software, and many other perks. It was an adventurer’s dream.
Such devices were quickly buried by the public’s urge for more style. Fortunately, ZOJI is keeping the ruggedness trend alive and well. The Z8 is an updated and enhanced version of the survival phone. It provides an excellent Android-operated smartphone for adventure enthusiasts.
When going camping, you want your phone to behave like a tank. Waterproof and shockproof abilities are all a must. Thankfully, you can have these perks with the Z8. Of course, ZOJI wanted to put an emphasis on endurance feature. Luckily, that’s not even the start of what this device has to offer.
Superiority within an indestructible body
When we saw the specs, we couldn’t believe our eyes. It’s amazing how wonderful the design of the phone looks like. Let’s start with the exterior, as it caused the most stir upon announcement.
The ever-reliable Gorilla Glass 4 acts as a layer of protection. The other parts of the phone’s exterior are made solely out of titanium. This gives you a safe grip.
Not only is the grip safer, but the phone is also shockproof. Imagine taking it on a hike and wanting to take photos. You won’t have to fear to drop the phone on some rocks.
What about a small pond? That’s okay too. The ZOJI Z8 is IP68 certified for waterproof and dustproof features.
Given the fact that this is a phone at a reasonable price, there is no reason for not giving it a proper chance. If everything goes as planned, it may be the best adventure –phone ever. Of course, we’re not talking just about the inside. What’s inside is maybe even better for such endeavors.
Not just a rugged face
Under the metal exterior lies a monster set of hardware. Maybe the best feature of them all is the 4.250 mAh battery. It comes off as an excellent energy source for the astounding 5-inch metal monster. The display comes in at 1280 x 720 in an HD version.
This is solid quality by today’s standards. Movies, TV shows and games are all a real possibility for this adventure enthusiast’s device.
Along with that, ZOJI did not hold back. The 64 GB of RAM is more than enough for all your photographic endeavors. We’re sure there will be plenty of them, as the visual hardware is up to the task once again.
A tag team of two cameras, coming in at 16 and 8 MP, form a formidable duo for all sorts of snaps, regardless of the place.
The 4 GB of RAM allows the Android 7.0 Nougat to run like a well-oiled machine. All in all, you should use this bargain price and get your hands on a beast in the form of metal-encased excellence.
