What shall be reviewed is the 5-inch 720p screen phone selling at the price of 211 bucks-ThL W8. it is equipped with quad-core processor and 320W pixel front-facing camera, and then we shall evaluate its own performance.

Judging from its appearance, ThL W8 looks like Samsung phone to some extent: imitative metal wiredrawing shading, mellow and full panel and narrow frame, all of which have somewhat signs of Samsung. However, its workmanship is quite great and the texture as well as quality is also appreciable.
ThL W8 adopts 5.0-inch screen, which is of 1280×720 resolution, 294ppi pixel density. Besides, its performance of color reduction and visible angle is good. The arc-shape design of the screen as well as the delicate touch feeling is also comfortable.

Those who are careful may find the swelling part will be designed near the loudspeaker. When we put it on the table, the swelling part will relieve the wear and tear of its back; on the other side, the loudspeaker will be raised so that we won’t miss the calls in case of the loudspeaker being covered.
                   (the volume key on the left and power key on the right)
It’s 9.9mm thick, which touches quite comfortable. The keys on sides are also designed reasonably, for instance, the power key is designed on the right side while the volume key is on the left side which can be reached by the forefinger.

On the top is the common 3.5mm earphone hole and micro USB cable interface while on the bottom is the microphone interface.
Its back is detachable, which can be realized via the concave slot next to the microphone interface. Besides, we can know it’s a dual-card standby phone, which also stands by WCDMA and GSM network and expansion of the storage.
The battery has the storage of 2000mAh, which is quite enough for the phone which uses cortex-A7 quad-core processor with low power dissipation. For those love playing games can buy one more battery and another mobile battery for reserve.
