Asphalt 8 was playable in high visual quality mode but for better experience you can try playing this game in medium quality mode – it was much more smoother.
On the back there is a 13MP AF camera with flash and on the front there is a 8MP camera. Rear camera can record full HD videos. Camera quality is average check the sample images at the end of this review. There is customized beauty camera app that helps get better selfies.
Sound was loud and clear, in-call sound was also pretty good. No issues with network. 3G, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth worked well.
The 3000 mAh removable battery performance is not impressive. As per my test results you can expect 3 to 5 hours of non-stop moderate to heavy usage. It will last for a day with moderate mixed usage, was expecting more juice from a 3000 mAh battery.
Bluboo Maya Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature).

- Asphalt 8 game play – 24 minutes / 7% / N/A degrees

It took me 3 hour 27 minutes to charge the handset using wall charger from 14% to 100%.
