Skyview Smart Phone

Post by kyleincambo » Wed Jun 21, 2017 9:59 pm

Does anyoe have the low down on this brand of phone. I jumped the gun at the local phone shop and bouht a 5.5 in F4 for $80, including a 16 gb sd card on top of the 8gb it comes with. Not a lot but enough. Anyways I played with it a lot at the store and it was down right awesome. My question is does anyone have a clue about this phone. Did I make a big mistake. Is it gonna break on me in a month. RIght now its the beez neez, super fast youtube, and internet and has all the bells and whistles. An 8mp camera too which is fine for me.

If you look for Skyview on google theres basically nothing their. Just one shop in Phnom Penh. Anyone know anything more about this brand. Would appreciate the reviews and help.

Technical Parameters :

- Free Case, Screen & Earphone
- Front Camera : 5 MP FF
- Back Camera : 8 MP 
- Size : 5.5 Inches QHD 
- OS : Android 6.0
- Internal : Ram 1 GB, Rom 8GB
- CPU : Quad-core 1.3 GHz
- Connectivity : Wifi, 3G
- Battery : 3200 mAh
- Color:  Black, Gold & Rose Gold

Ordinary specs, but it's an $80 phone. If it lasts 6 months it's at least as good value as any of the big brands.

Next time you might consider a Singtech L1 Infinity - big screen, 4G, dual sim, all the fruit, around $110 with a jacket. If mine dies, I'm buying another one.

There's an actual Singtech shop (not an "agent" or reseller) behind Sovanna Mall. Upside for me was that I physically damaged the battery, new original one was $5.

Hi Kyle,

I know you haven't had the phone a long time but it sounds like a good deal. Where did you buy it in PP? I'd like the name and address of the shop if you have it. Cheers

So, if I understand correctly you got a phone 1 step up from Stroppy's and 2smaller ones. Were the smaller ones from the same manufacturer and were they 3 or 4 G. Thanks. And where is this shop?
