VKworld Mix Plus First Hands-On Review

Back to the device, setting up the device isn’t different from what we’ve experienced in series of smartphones. Setting up is easy and can be completed in a few minutes.

Based on first impressions, I love the display. Its crispy and I’ve got to be honest, it appears really sharp. Although the specs-sheet on paper states HD (720p) display, it appears sharp, especially for it’s price of around a $100.

The back houses the camera, fingerprint and flash. Remember as earlier stated, it’s all glass. And to be clear, this is the blue color variant. There is actually a black color variant.

The device runs Android 7.0 nougat OS out of the box. Personally, I love that bezel-less display and for just around a $100, the display quality seem on fleek.

This is just my first impressions of the VKWorld Mix Plus. A full review will be available in the next few days.
