Bluboo S1 Unboxing, Initial Review: Slim Bezels, Dual Camera For Not Much Money
Source: Unbox English
Powering the Bluboo S1 is a MediaTek P25 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. MediaTek’s Helio P25 chipset is good enough for daily use and light to moderate gaming, with a 3500mAh battery keeping the lights on and Android Nougat 7.0 running the show.

Bluboo S1 Review
Source: Yugatech English
Bluboo definitely tried to cater a smartphone packed with powerful internals you rarely find in a smartphone at an affordable price. It has a full HD IPS display, MediaTek Helio P25 SoC, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage. If you can get past its not-so-good battery optimization and selfie camera, then the S1 may work for you.

The Bluboo S1 might look identical to the Doogee Mix, but it doesn’t quite match its charm. It’s built solidly enough, and can perform day-to-day task without issue, but the awful camera does spoil things quite considerably.

72.5% Bluboo S8 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
1/6th the price, 1/6th the performance. Bluboo is capitalizing on the Galaxy S8 craze with its own copycat version for $150 USD. The Bluboo S8 would have been quite impressive if it weren't for some deep faults.
Bluboo S8 Review
Source: Yugatech English
Bluboo definitely did try to usher its products in a price range that is slowly getting crowded, but sadly the S8 doesn’t bring with it anything striking to stand out from the crowd. While it does have the design cues and feel of some of the market’s prominent flagships, its performance leaves something to be desired. What the company does offer is a device with a premium feel, USB Type-C connectivity, and an overall average performance at a sub-10k price. At a price of Php 7,499, other competitors, including their very own S1 which is just a few hundred pesos more, might offer better performance and features.

Bluboo S8 Review – An S8 for PhP 7,099
Source: Manila Shaker English
Well, if you’re interested in the Bluboo S8, I highly suggest that you grab yours from Banggood.com. It now retails for $134.99 or P7099, and I’d be hard-pressed to not recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relatively cheap smartphone that does well on a day-to-day basis.

Bluboo S8 Review: Best Budget Samsung Galaxy S8 Clone Sponsored By @Banggood
Source: Igeekphone English
The Bluboo S8 is one of those phones with good specifications, the main feature is the similarity it carries with the original model of the Galaxy S8. But if we overlook this detail, then we will have no problem in realizing that it has an impressive design and build quality, good usability and obviously its magnificent “Infinity Style” screen with 18: 9 aspect ratio and dazzling brightness during the day.

60% Bluboo S8 Plus Review
Source: PC Advisor English
At £134.99/$179.99/€153.76 from GearBest the Bluboo S8+ sounds a great deal on paper, and it certainly looks the part. But it offers middling performance, a terrible camera and a low-res HD screen. Battery life isn't as good as we had hoped for either. You will find more for your money.

Comment

Bluboo:

In 2009, the Shenzhen Huihua Exploit Technology Co LTD established the brand Bluboo in Hong Kong. The brand is focused on smartphones.

Internationally, the brand is not too important. There are hardly any reviews, and in the few cases, the rating is rather underwhelming (as of 2016).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ARM Mali-T880 MP12: Mobile graphics solution for tablets and smartphones, which can be found in ARM SoCs like the Samsung Exynos 8890 with 650 MHz.Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

ARM Mali-T860 MP2: Dual-Core version of the Mali-T860 graphics card from ARM for mostly Android based smartphones and tablets. E.g. in the Mediatek Helio P10 clocked at 700 MHz and produced in 28nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
:

Mediatek:

MT6750: ARM-based octa-core SoC (4x Cortex-A53 up to 1.5 GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 up to 1 GHz) with 64-Bit support and integrated LTE Cat. 6 radio.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.169 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

0.28 kg:

This weight is typical for smartphones.


65.21%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
