Design and Display
As it is, the smartphone has a nice design to qualify as a good looking smartphone. However, it lacks that spectacular factor seen in some high-end smartphones. At the front, the smartphone features an almost end to end display with the fingerprint sensor in between the two navigation touch buttons. The back panel on the other hand, is well polished with antenna line close to the bottom and top.
The Blu Vivo 8 also comes with a full HD colourful 5.5-inch display which almost goes edge to edge of the smartphone. Although the smartphone comes with a an IPS LCD panel which might not be as saturated as OLED screens but the full HD resolution handles things quit well.

An all round pleasing spec sheet at the mid-range smartphone category is not something you see often. The Blu Vivo 8 comes with a fairly large battery capacity which is in, itself a selling point. According to Blu the 4, 010mAh Li-Po battery featured on the smartphone should go for two days on minimal usage.
On the camera front, the smartphone sports a 13MP rear camera and a 16MP front camera with features like a group selfie mood, smart scenes, professional mood and so on. Another thing is the presence of flash on both side of the smartphone which allows you take pictures even in not too lit environment.
Hardware and Software
For a mid-range smartphone, there’s a decent Helio P10 chipset on the smartphone accompanied by an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU for graphics rendering. The Octa-core MediaTek MT6755 processor clocks at 2.0GHz max.
Also, the Blu Vivo 8 has an impressive storage capacity with a 64GB built-in storage up to 128GB using a memory card.
