Reviews for the Bluboo S8

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 version
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 version
Well, if you’re interested in the Bluboo S8, I highly suggest that you grab yours from 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 version
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.

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.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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).

72.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
