BLUBOO EDGE REVIEW
(REVIEW OF SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES)
As we mentioned in the previous article Bluboo is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer who has launched some good looking smartphones in the previous year with the likes of Bluboo Picasso, Bluboo Maya, and Bluboo Dual etc. In this article, we will be reviewing another budget level smartphone manufactured by Bluboo whose name is “Bluboo Edge”.
The Bluboo Edge has been inspired by the designs of Galaxy S7 Edge and is a perfect replica of S7 Edge in terms of looks and design. Bluboo Edge is great smartphone even though it does looks like S7 but it cannot be compared to a flagship of that level, Edge has its own identity with many promising features.
Just like our previously reviewed smartphone ‘Bluboo Dual’, this device is also a budget oriented smartphone which is priced at almost the same price range with some extra features and qualities.
The Bluboo Edge has a very premium built quality with a classy dual-sided curvy design the smartphone has a pleasing visual appeal which also makes it physically comfortable. In combination with the naturally flowing lines and a thin frame design, Bluboo Edge generates a satisfactory feeling in our palm.
The overall appearance of this curvy device has been perfected by CNC cutting and polishing which is not at all gaudy, the lines are beautiful which perfectly streamlines the feeling of elegance and generosity
The Bluboo Edge Comes with a spectacular dual curved 5.5″ inch OGS Display which has a resolution of 720×1280 pixels with a PPI density of 267 pixels per inch. The display is almost the same as the Galaxy S7 Edge’s but it does lack that level of visual quality.
This device offers high-quality contrast ratio with balanced color gamut, the big screen produces rich colours with higher contrast giving the user a wonderful visual experience, which makes watching movies or playing games even more enjoyable. The display is protected by corning gorilla glass for making it safer and secure to carry.
The technology of One Glass Solution used here made by SHARP makes the screen of your device curvy and thin at the same time.
The Bluboo Edge comes with decent hardware specifications, it has the same processor found in the Bluboo Dual with same SoC and GPU making this device a decent performer.
It has a MediaTek MT6737T SoC with ARM Cortex-A53 64 bit quad core CPU clocking at 1.3 GHz along with ARM Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB RAM, it also has an internal storage capacity of 16GB which can be further expanded up to 256 GB
The processor brings superior performance with a slightly lower battery consumption, making the device more stable and fluent for multitasking. The Mali T720 GPU makes complicated graphic process more easy and efficient making user’s experience even better
The Bluboo Edge sports a 13.0MP Sony Exmor RS rear shooter which was found in the Bluboo Dual too, the only difference is that the Dual came with another 2 MP depth analyzer which is not present here.
All the major features like Autofocus, Geotagging, Panorama, HDR, Touch focus, Face detection, ISO, Exposure compensation, Scene mode are present with a dual tone rear flash which will definitely help you to capture images in low light conditions.
On the front we have a very good 8.0 MP shooter which delivers sharp images with decent quality and vivid colors, Selfie lovers will most likely love the front camera as it can capture beautiful images.
The Bluboo Edge just like other smartphones launched recently features an Android-based operating system, it comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box which will likely get an update for the recently launched Android 7.0 Nougat.
Unlike the Bluboo Dual which came with a massive 3000mAh battery, the Bluboo Edge comes with a not so big 2600mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery which will give a decent battery backup to normal users who are not burdening their smartphone with tons of tasks.
But for heavy users, this battery is a drawback and they might get a little disappointed by the battery backup of their smartphone.
Few More Noticeable Features:
Wet hand Operation & Glove Mode
Just like the Bluboo Dual this device also comes with the amazing feature to use your device even with wet hands and the Glove mode enables users to use their smartphones even with their gloves on and they won’t have to remove them which was a bit of drag for everybody.
Intelligent Front Touch ID
Unlike the Dual, the fingerprint sensor of Bluboo Edge is situated on the front panel which has a little more to it than a normal sensor.
It offers amazing interaction experience, you can use the single button for two different tasks one light touch will work as a back button, where two light touches will take you directly to your home screen which is very convenient for users
Built In Heart Sensor
Just like the Galaxy S7 Edge, the Bluboo Edge also comes with a built-in heart rate monitoring feature that means It has the ability to monitor your heart rate if you hold it in your palm. A very top notched feature for a budget device.
Pros & Cons:
|Dual Curved Cutting Edge Display||Small battery life with only 2600mAh battery|
|8 MP Front camera||Low on performance with only 2GB Ram and a Quad core processor|
|Very Premium Built quality|
Well, I must say Bluboo has certainly done a great job with this device, all though it is a lot much inspired by the S7 Edge but this device has surely earned a name for itself and you will not be disappointed by it.
For people who are looking for a classy budget smartphone that has a premium built quality and looks great in your hand, the Bluboo Edge is a great option for you.
