1 thought on “Blackview A10 Review – Budget Smartphone With 16GB ROM”

  1. A phone that doesn’t support 4G nowadays is almost unusable, add to that the ridiculously outdated version of Android, it’s extremely low processing power and its tendency to repeatedly crash just from using apps like Amazon Music, makes the A10 an extremely frustrating and highly regrettable purchase. If you want a good quality budget smartphone, buy a BluBoo, don’t waste your hard earned money on this.
