Blackview Tab 80: The Basics

The Blackview Tab 80 has a lightweight, solid metal body weighing 484g. Unlike some budget tablets, there are three color choices: Nightfall Grey, Misty Blue and Mint Green. The USB-C port is for charging and data transfers, and there’s a 3.5mm audio jack if you prefer wired earphones.

This tablet is powered by the Unisoc T606 Octa-Core chipset and can ship with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM. Storage-wise, there’s a choice for 64GB or 128GB of storage, but you can expand storage space up to 1TB by inserting a microSD card. There are three variants, namely, 4GB/64GB, 4GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB. The latter two cost more than the base model.

While the Blackview Tab 80 has Widevine L1 certification, it can’t display content in FHD due to the HD resolution. However, this certification does allow you to watch HD content on YouTube, Netflix and other streaming services.

A unique feature many newer Blackview tablets have, including the Tab 80, is virtual RAM. This feature lets you use a small portion of storage space as RAM. You can double your current RAM from 4GB to 8GB or 8GB to 16GB. Virtual RAM isn’t as fast as adding physical RAM to your device, but it decreases loading times by a noticeable amount.

The Tab 80 is a serviceable device in HD, but if you want to watch content in FHD, consider the Blackview Tab 16, which has better hardware and comes with accessories like a stylus. The Tab 16 can play some games but is more suitable for work, streaming content, and reading.

Those looking for a larger mid-range tablet can consider the Lenovo Tab P12, which has a 12-inch display and more premium features, like a fingerprint sensor and excellent speakers. The package also comes with a Lenovo Tab Pen Plus active stylus that you can use for drawing and notetaking.
