O+ 8.15 reached our headquarters two days ago and we’re really excited to open it up. The package is the same as the O+ 8.12 which is housed in an elegant looking box unlike other more affordable O+ android phones.
As usual, the O+ 8.15 comes with all the things that you’ll need. It contains the unit, USB cable, charger head, manuals, warranty card, earphones, and the FREE 8GB Sandisk microSD card. Yes, if you’ll get this flagship smartphone from O+ USA, it includes an 8GB microSD instead of the 4GB which is typically bundled on their lower-end models. After all, powerful specs mean that you’ll throw away ridiculously number of apps and games on it so it’s better to be ready.
Check out the unboxing photos below.
As far as first impressions go, I can definitely say that the O+ 8.15 is blazingly fast and it’s also proven by its high benchmarks scores from AnTuTu and Quadrant Standard. On NenaMark v2, it got a 46.0 score which is the highest among all the smartphones we tested here on this site.
Another thing that I liked most about it is the 5-inch HD IPS Dragon Trail Glass display which delivers beautiful and vibrant colors. The images and text are vibrant and the overall build is premium unlike other cheaper android phones. Seriously.
Though I find it very attractive, I would have preferred if it’s all black or all white as I think it would look much, much better, However, it seems like it’s a design language from O Plus as the O Plus 8.12 android phone also has the same color scheme. Check out the full technical specifications of the O Plus 8.15 smartphone below.
