Reviews for the Bluboo S1

Bluboo S1 Unboxing, Initial Review: Slim Bezels, Dual Camera For Not Much Money
Source: Unbox English version
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

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.

60% Bluboo S1 smartphone review
Source: Tech Advisor English version
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.

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


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).

64.8%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
