"We make our own phones and always make sure that we come up with products that don't only look good but are also tough and can withstand the knocks and bumps of everyday use," our friends from O+ told me during one of our meetings earlier this year.

Just like all releases of the American company, the O+ 8.6 had passed all the rigid tests of their research and development department in terms of durability and radiation safety. "All of devices are safe for the users. They can use our smartphones with complete peace of mind," they added.

As you can see in these photos, apart from its stellar build, its stunning design is obviously one of the strong suits of the O+ 8.6.

The handset has a rounded design identity with tapered sides making a joy to hold or keep in the bag or pocket. It's quite slim and it doesn't really bulk all that much when you place in your jeans' front pocket.

This metallic design accent frames the sides of the device giving it an air of luxury, elegance, and corporate sophistication. The back cover, on the hand, has a matte finish, which should help prevent accidental slippage from the user's grasp.

TP Friends, let's check out all the items inside the O+ 8.6 retail package.

The Android smartphone comes in this hard plastic case, which is a breath of fresh air from all the paper boxes that house most budget handsets from local and internal players these days.

I think it's very generous of the American company to have included a free 4GB microSD card, which you can use to expand the phone's already sizable 8GB of internal storage.

We have this rather small, "pocketable" microUSB charger.

The package also contains O+ 8.6's removable 1,500 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, which - while not all too big - nonetheless delivers decent uptime thanks to the CPU power saving software feature, which is unique to this release.

Specs-wise, O+ 8.6 runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system with its 1 GHz Dual Core ARM Cortex A7 CPU and PowerVR SGX 531 GPU based MediaTek MT6577 chipset and handles multitasking with 1 GB of RAM. These innards combine to give it an Antutu Benchmark Test Score of 8,311 and 2,636 on Quadrant Standard -- both of which are typical of handsets with such specifications.
