While it is an up-sized version of the 5.5-inch T-Mobile REVVL, our review of the 6-inch REVVL Plus's pros and cons reveals that it did not make that big of a jump specs-wise.
Kicking off its cons is the REVVL Plus's bulky 7.1-ounce weight , making it roughly 37 percent heavier than the average smartphone as of November 2017. Bulkiness is the bane of many wide-screen smartphones, however, so no surprises there. Another questionable setback is that is still only comes with 2GB of RAM , despite replacing the original REVVL's quad-core 1.5GHz processor with the more-favorable Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 eight-core 2GHz chip . Additionally, its RAM capacity sounds even more underwhelming, since, in comparison, a bunch of other middle-class 6-inchers lug at least 3GB in that aspect.
As for its pluses, the REVVL Plus boasts a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual-rear-camera setup , which, knowing that not many mid-rangers picked up on the dual-camera trend, is its biggest pro. Its 6-inch Full HD screen is also a positive facet, especially for budget Android shoppers with heavy binge-watching and gaming in mind. As for selfies, it comes with an 8-megapixel wide-angle (T-Mobile did not specify exactly how wide as of this write-up) selfie camera that still hits a positive note, since some tantamount models still insist on 5-megapixel-only selfie shooters.

The rest of its pros and cons include a robust 3380mAh battery whose 990-minute talk time is not half bad. That said, its below-average 288-hour maximum standby period sounds a tad problematic, so we won't lump it with full-fledged heavy-duty smartphones just yet. The REVVL Plus also features a fingerprint detector sitting right under its rear camera, while a passable 32GB memory expandable by up to 128GB is on storage duties.
All-in-all the T-Mobile REVVL Plus is not the best its price group has to offer, but with a 6-inch FHD-1080p display and dual rear cameras leading the way, it might just do the trick for those in search of a multimedia-inclined middle-class phablet.
