It’s a beast underlying in beauty to charm most smartphone lovers both in looks and specs, prompting us to compare the latest offering from the recently launched power dynamite, unfortunately the new Gtel is not yet readily available in stock!
Speaking during the official launch in Bulawayo, at Holiday Inn, Mr Shumba said that this phone has all the best specifications to call it our flagship since it has real outstanding specifications and properties that scream out.
The smooth carved shape, screen display resolution , Antena technology, fingerprint technology and proprietary software programs to run the hardware like video editing breaks new ground with the Gtel SL8.
Unfortunately, they have however made it all metal coated and dumped my beautiful front and back glass style from thier SL5.1 and 5.5 series which really redefined beauty in smartphones.
The new battery is a 3000maH, half the size of the predecessor on X3, which makes the phones lighter for those who never enjoyed the bulkiness from X3 but it seems it comes with low battery life as well.
We are yet to do a hands on with the new phone to actually test the processing bench test, camera power, network reception, and proprietary apps but it seems this smartphone may beat its competitors.
If the statement comes really true, we wait to see if the same smartphone will beat the all time powerful camera from the Gtel SL 5.5, the best smartphone camera they have ever launched.
