iNew U8W is the latest smartphone of iNew launched in July 2016. The phone falls under a very low price range of $69. The device comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of ROM and is powered by quad core processor. The 1.3 GHz MTK6580 chipset is pretty decent considering the price range.
iNew U8W smartphone has a 5.5 inches screen that too has 720p (HD) display. For just $69, the company somehow have managed to provide pretty decent features. I have been using this smartphone as my secondary phone since a couple of days. So I thought to prepare a review for the same. The phone is very cheap as you can buy it from Everbuying at the above mentioned price. So let’s begin with the iNew U8W review and discuss more about its features and more.
One more thing I should tell you before starting the review that the company is a Chinese based smartphone company established in 2012. I have already reviewed their other smartphone iNew U9 smartphone. The company is not much old and is spreading its roots all over the world. So without any further ado, lets begin with the iNew U8W review.
Cheap or Economical ?
You must know the difference between Cheap and Economical. For those who don’t know Cheap products means less value products but Economical product means a product with great value. Wait, but I have already included Cheap in this article’s heading, no ? Don’t bother as I have done that just for the price sake. The smartphone has really a very cheap price but considering this price it has decent features. So, overall the phone becomes really very Economical and has a cheap price. Now you are getting me, cool.
Cheap Price + Decent Features = Economical

Display and Design
I won’t say that the device has got a great design but it is not bad at all. The design of this smartphone is actually 7 on 10. The thing I liked is that the smartphone has round corners. If you were expecting a metal body then I’ll have to excuse you guys as the phone has a plastic body. What do you expect under $69 ? Anyway I am attaching some pictures of iNew U8W smartphone in this post to give you a better idea on its design.
The phone looks pretty nice and really comfortable in hands. The screen size is 5.5 inches which is again decent for a smartphone. A simple design and comfortable handling are the positive points of this smartphone. It has an 8.0 MP camera on the back with the iNew company logo. On the bottom of the logo there consists small speakers. The back cover is made of plastic is removable.
On the right side of the device, volume rocker buttons and power button are present. Of course, microphone is present to the bottom of the device. Now most of the smartphone has the USB jack on the bottom, but uniquely iNew U8W has an USB jack on the top of it along with a 3.5 mm audio headphone jack. The speaker output quality is decent and you won’t be disappointed with this.
Now moving on to its display quality. The phone has an excellent screen size of 5.5″ that has an HD Resolution (720p). The display is great and the color quality is equally good. U8W is marvelously designed with 9.0 thin-body that perfectly complement the curvy 2.5D front cover. The design is not bad at all and the curves are so sleek that you won’t be able to take your eyes off them, the company says. But for me the design is just OK. Considering the price range you won’t be disappointed with the display and design quality of this smartphone.
For $69, one can’t expect much. Still the design is Ok and the phone gives comfort while holding it in your hands. Now a days bigger screen size has came in to fashion so I think 5.5″ screen would be perfect for you.
iNew U8W smartphone is powered by MTK6580 1.3 GHz Quad Core Processor that too comes with 1 GB of RAM. U8W combines a staggering 1 GB RAM along with MTK6580 quad core processor to provide a good speed.
The phone might lag at times but overall the performance is quite satisfactory. The 64-bit processor provides a decent processing speed if you are using the phone moderately.
iNew U8W smartphone comes with 8 GB of RAM. Many of you will found the internal storage to be quite short. But anyway, you can’t complaint much as the phone is available only for $69.99
Camera & Battery
Now coming to the camera of this smartphone, the phone has 8.0 MP rear camera with auto focus. Surprisingly, the phone has no flash so you can only capture pictures in a day light or at a place where the light quality is decent. As the phone don’t has flash so you can’t capture pictures in the dark.
iNew U8W smartphone has 2.0 MP rear camera which is quite satisfactory to take normal quality selfies. You can do video calling with the help of this front camera very easily. Overall the camera quality is not bad at all. It can do your work. What more can you expect in this price range. I think it’s more than anything you can get under this price range.
U8W smartphone has 2500 mAh battery which is pretty awesome as the phone costs only 69 bucks. Cool ? Even my Xiaomi Mi4i has 3000 mAh battery. The battery life is pretty cool. The phone can give you a backup of more than a day very easily. You won’t find any difficulties with the battery of this smartphone.
