Review

There’s no error with this type of phones, with that cocktail of hardware married with Android Nougat, here in iGeekPhone, think that’s enough power to move every app and game you need for your daily basis, also the Meiigoo S8 comes with an exquisite design inspired from Samsung flagship. The power from midrange with the looks from highend.

Just for the record, Mediatek has achieved a reliable GPS, so, forget those times when using a mediatek soc was a synonymous of lost sat connection.
