- Analysis by KJ David
Hovering somewhere between the budget-tier and mid-range smartphone categories in terms of technical pros and cons, the T-Mobile REVVLRY runs on a 1.8GHz octa-core processor that won't likely plug it into Phonerated's list of the best eight-core phones in town, seeing that most models on that list support their specs with at-least-2GHz octa-core chips. Its aforementioned processor is coupled with no more than 3GB of RAM, while a so-so 32GB native memory that can at least be expanded by up to 256GB, takes charge of the storage front.
We also flagged the REVVLRY's 1520 x 720 HD+ screen resolution as a con, considering that several other models with tantamount screen real estates (5.7 inches) greet users with 1080p FHD/FHD+ displays. Its 720p definition also mars its wide 19:9 screen aspect ratio , which reminds us of the displays rocked by some of the best large-screen smartphones available as of this on-paper review.
This 2019 T-Mobile release is not without a few appreciable pros, however, one of which is its 3000mAh wireless-charging-enabled battery . Furthermore, it features a water-repellent coating and it combines both fingerprint- and face-based security , whereas many of its mid-level rivals offer only one or the other.
Photography-wise, the REVVLRY's 13-megapixel LED-flash camera sounds rather mundane compared to those of the best camera phones, although its 8-megapixel flash-rigged front cam sounds like a nice pro to us, since not a lot of models within its price group sport dedicated frontal LED flashes.
Joining its list of pros and cons is a 2-year warranty and the Android 9.0 Pie platform, topping it off as a passable option for budget Android shoppers who are meticulous when it comes to battery life and screen space.
