People nowadays have trained themselves to lower expectations when it comes to smartphones that cost less than $500, which is a mistake. Blackview is addressing the prejudice that is held against Chinese smartphone manufacturers who sell affordable phones with the fresh Alife P1 Pro, an impressive device. The original price of the Blackview Alife P1 Pro is of course more than $100, but in a partnership with Everbuying, Blackview has managed to gather quite the crowd with the new offer.
If you go to Everbuying and follow a set of rules while shopping, you can buy the Alife P1 Pro unlocked for only $100, and get a massive gift pack for free, too. The gift pack comes with a screen protector, a smartphone holder, a 32 GB microSD card and a selfie stick, all for the $100 price tag. With the bundle, you would be saving quite a sum of money, which makes this offer interesting. But in order to benefit from the bundle, you need to pay attention to your timing.
According to Everbuying, you will be able to buy the Alife P1 Pro with gifts for $100 on every Wednesday, starting at 8 AM GMT, but there is a limited number of bundles available for the price, so you should set a reminder to place your order as close to the opening window as possible. If you’re more interested in testing the Alife P1 Pro smartphone than benefiting from the promotion, you can get the phone for $120 without any gifts if you purchase on Monday or Friday starting at 8 AM GMT, or for $140 the rest of the days of the week.
Everbuying is hosting this promotion for this month and we urge everyone to at least take a look at what the bundle has to offer, especially the Alife P1 Pro smartphone. For $100, most people are left amazed when checking out the phone, because it promises a lot of bang for buck, which is intriguing. Makes you wonder where the compromises of the phone will be. Since the smartphone has just recently begun its shipping, there’s little to be known about long-term performance. Nonetheless, from what we’ve seen and tested, the Alife P1 Pro lives up to expectations.
The Blackview Alife P1 Pro comes with a massive 5.5 inch 720p display, most likely a 5-point touch display, which is crisp and decent. The resolution of course is not ideal, but it’s decent enough not to impact the user experience too much. The design is more appealing than the display, as the Alife P1 Pro comes with a metal frame, curved sides, chamfered edges and an appearance that is reminiscent of recent launches like the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
The design of the Alife P1 Pro is rather appealing, the company emphasizing simplicity and minimalism in the build. Although build quality will not be as great as it is with Apple or Samsung phones, durability is assured, at least for a year, according to Blackview. Its sleek design brings out the thinness of the Alife P1 Pro and the lightweight build of the device certainly makes it a good alternative to expensive flagships like the new Apple iPhone 6, which prides itself with design.
Under the hood, the Alife P1 Pro is ambitiously outfitted with a 64 bit MediaTek 6735 CPU, complete with 4G LTE, 16 GB ROM, 2 GB RAM and a microSD card slot. A 3000 mAh battery provides the juice for everything, Android 5.1 Lollipop included. There’s some skinning and some bloatware involved in the user experience, but the performance of the Alife P1 Pro is not really impacted by the light Blackview branded skin.
Besides the usual connectivity features, the Alife P1 Pro also comes with biometric security in the form of a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button on the front of the device. The camera setup is impressive, too, as the phone comes with a 13 MP sensor (autofocus and flash included) on the rear and a 5 MP wide-angle sensor on the front, for selfies.
The Alife P1 Pro is a well-balanced smartphone, and if you can time your purchase right, the deal that Everbuying has for it cannot be beat. In my opinion, the investment is definitely worth it, as the phone seems like a very capable mid-range device and bundled with the accessories that you get in the gift, it can be an awesome daily driver complete with everything a smartphone user could need. Any takers?
