MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Rimo8 is one of those phones that leave you more confused. It has conflicting specs and features across different websites. And some of these specs are ridiculous for the price being listed.

For example, on one e-commerce website, it has 12 GB of RAM, but 8 GB on another. The main camera is listed as 8 MP on one and 48 on another. One online store sells it as a 5G Android phone, but the MediaTek chipset on the specs sheet is a 4G LTE model – in fact, it is the first MediaTek chipset with 4G LTE and was announced in 2014.

But another e-commerce store lists it with the MediaTek MTK6889 (Dimensity 1000) chipset, which is a 5G chip.

As for the price, it is the most conflicting thing ever. One store lists it as available for $635. Another 635 SAR, another 6.965 PHP, and yet another says it sells for ₦28,050.

Make of you what you will of the Rimo8, but we cannot honestly recommend it to anyone. We advice that you stay away from the product.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation that we make based on our evaluation of the specs of the phone or device.

It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of either the device or of its manufacturers. Be sure to ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device, as MobilityArena may not be held responsible for your buying decisions.
