Bluegate BG8i

Build and Screen

This is a budget slate. Therefore, you need not be surprised to find the body is made of plastic. The chassis is sleek and the edges are smooth. A thickness of about 9.4 millimetres isn’t bad, but the Bluegate BG8i is no lightweight device.

It features a huge touchscreen which measures 8 inches in diagonal size. There is no mention of the screen resolution, but this looks promising from images of the tablet.

Camera and Storage

The Bluegate BG8i is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera featuring autofocus and flashlight. It also comes with a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies.

The camera setup is not bad – on paper, at least – since this is a tablet, and a budget one at that.

Bluegate BG8i comes with 16GB onboard storage for storing your movies, songs and apps. You can expand the storage by another 32 GB using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

Armed with a quad-core processor, the Bluegate BG8i should deliver respectable performance. The CPU, which has its speed capped at 1.3 GHz, is assisted by 1 GB of RAM. Movies and less-demanding games should run with minimal glitches, but robust multitasking looks to suffer.

What you may find somewhat disappointing about this slate is that it still boots Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. That software is obsolete by current standards. It comes with some apps preloaded and you can get more from the Google Play Store.

Other Features

You should be able to enjoy several hours of movie viewing on the Bluegate BG8i given it is equipped with a high-capacity 4,500mAh battery. It offers dual SIM slots and supports 3G WCDMA connectivity.

Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and GPS are also available for wireless connectivity.

Pricing and Availability

Bluegate BG8i is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Bluegate BG8i Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N29,000 to N35,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
