The BLU Vivo 8 is a dual-SIM, 4G LTE phablet with a 5.5-inch display and 4010 mAh battery. Under the hood, it is powered by a Helio P10 processor and 4 GB of RAM.
For our US-based readers, BLU Vivo 8 supports 4G LTE networks across different US carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and all MVNO networks. If travelling to Nigeria, note that the Vivo 8 supports only one of the two GSM frequencies in use in Nigeria – 1800 MHz. This means that you will lose GSM signal in locations where the network runs on 900 MHz. Thankfully, it fully supports Nigeria’s 3G frequencies, so the phone will hop on to 3G. All other things being equal, you will stay connected to the network.
