At this point, you will have noticed that the new trend in all new terminals is the reduction of the frames of the screen, generally in two variants, in the style Xiaomi Mi MIX or as we see in the LG V30. Import brands have copied this trend and we have already seen some terminals follow, such as the BLUBOO S8 in the review which we have already talked about and is renewed with its superior version, the BLUBOO S8 Plus, which not only grows in size.
With the BLUBOO S8 Plus, the Chinese company intends to cover more market with a larger terminal and improved performance, but without increasing the price and above all, maintaining the main attraction in this line of devices, the infinity display, of frames very reduced and with 18: 9 ratio.
BLUBOO S8 and S8 Plus: Desing and Appearance
The smartphones look incredibly impressive. A huge super-sharp screen, turning into side faces, attracts all attention. There is no such thing in the market exactly.
The screen uses the Sharp matrix with a resolution of HD. Additional pixels of the matrix was required for buttons on the screen, which are always displayed but do not interfere. Of course, this option can not be called ideal, but it is in any case better than the usual implementation of soft keys, eating extra space.
The framework, of course, is, and this is noticeable. But there is no obstacle for the hands or the surrounding objects.
With this value, the matrix has the most optimal resolution. The number of dots per inch is close to that of 5.7 and 6.0-inch smartphones with HD.
The screen is slightly worse than the Xiaomi but holds the brand of the experimental flagship. The detailing of the image is excellent, as are the viewing angles-an honest 178 degrees. The screen is bright enough, the colors are juicy. If necessary, you can use fine tuning with the help of system tools.
Back cover is ceramic and glossy. Although the lid is bright, strong and pleasant to the touch, it still has some unpleasant features.
This perfectly smooth surface perfectly collects fingerprints. And without a cover constantly strives to slip out of his hands.
The device has a traditional arrangement of controls: on the right is the volume control and power button, from the bottom – speakers and a USB Type-C connector, to the left – a SIM card slot. At the top, there is a headset jack and additional microphones for noise reduction.
Since the screen occupies most of the surface, the traditional place of the speaker and the front camera is empty. More precisely, it is occupied by a screen and can not be used.
Therefore, the company’s engineers moved the front camera down. And the piezo-dynamic, which is used instead of the usual dynamic driver, was hidden under the glass.
The fingerprint scanner is equipped with only a version with 3GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory.
Overall impression of BLUBOO S8 and S8 Plus in review – it’s very big. Of course, less and slightly more convenient than BLUBOO S8 with a similar screen size. But the lack of side frames makes it impossible to use them for an additional point of support.
You have to use proprietary system scaling or use two hands when working with a smartphone.
As we have already mentioned, the BLUBOO S8 Plus grows in size compared to the BLUBOO S8, reaching up to 6 inches diagonal, manufactured by SHARP and maintaining the same HD resolution, which a priori and without proving it, makes us a bit scarce for a panel of this size, but you have to see how it behaves.
On the processor, we do not know any details, but it could be the same that we have seen in his “little brother”.
BLUBOO S8 and S8 Plus: Hardware and Performance
Regarding, the BLUBOO S8 Plus reaches 4 GB of RAM, which together with 64 GB of internal storage, should throw us a very good user experience.
It moving the multitasking correctly and allowing us to store all those images and videos that we capture with his camera, which apparently will also be improved.
From what we see in the images, will feature the 360OS personalization layer, but with some icons very similar to those we see in the Samsung Galaxy S8.
BLUBOO S8 and S8 Plus: Cameras
BLUBOO turned out a strange concept. The top processor, but at a fast speed. Flagship smartphone, but with a fairly mediocre camera. The capabilities of the camera installed in the S8 and S8 Plus are not bad, but not for the device for $200.
The photos confirm this. They are bright, pleasant. Only here, any other Chinese device of the highest price category will make the pictures as good.
When shooting a selfie, difficulties will arise. You have to turn the smartphone upside down. Do not want to turn upside-down, so as not to take pictures of your shoulders. For lovers of Selfie, this device can not be exactly recommended.
BLUBOO S8 and S8 Plus: Battery
Little more we know about the BLUBOO S8 Plus, which will have a 3450mAh battery to power all this hardware.
It is rumored that this terminal will go on sale in October, but during the waiting time, it seems that BLUBOO plans to launch another terminal on the market, the BLUBOO S8 Lite, for those who do not look for a terminal so large.
