As most Pro versions go, the Blackview A60 Pro is an overall upgrade over its A60 little brother when it comes to technical pros and cons, although some of its specs still nail it to the budget-class smartphone category. For one, it settles for a quad-core 2GHz Helio A22 processor , which obviously flounders in comparison to the engines powering many eight-core models. It comes with 3GB of RAM this time, though, which we consider a huge leap from the plain A60's paltry 1GB capacity.
Also among its cons is the A60 Pro's lack of NFC (Near Field Communication) support -- NFC was already considered a staple smartphone facet around the time of this Phonerated review. Moreover, it does not promise much when it comes to selfies, touting a middle-of-the-road 5-megapixel selfie cam on its screen's waterdrop notch.
Speaking of its screen, the A60 Pro features one of the widest displays within its price group (It was pegged at roughly 90 dollars as of this write-up), in the form of a 6.1-inch IPS display with a 19.2:9 aspect ratio, bringing to mind some full-blown high-end phablets. Regrettably, it settles for a modest 1280 x 600 HD+ sharpness and scores a mere 232ppi definition , although it does come with a scratch-resistant AGC Dragontrail Glass finish .
Its pros also include a dual rear camera consisting of an 8-megapixel main lens and a depth-of-field sensor that enables DSLR-like bokeh effects for portrait shots -- check out some of the best photography phones here. Additionally, it boasts a sizable 4080mAh battery and it combines a rear-mounted fingerprint detector with Blackview's Face Access feature for security. Its native storage memory caps off at only 16GB, but it can be expanded by up to 256GB.
With two nano SIM card trays and a coating of either Emerald Green, Gradient Blue, or Interstellar Black rounding out its pros and cons, the A60 Pro winds up as a viable choice for those eying a large-screen, high-stamina budget smartphone.
