Bluboo, a renowned Chinese smartphone manufacturer seem not to be giving up on their determind game and mindset of having their feet rigged firmly in the Chinese market and global smartphone market at large. Bluboo have made quite a number of durable, good looking and top notch smartphones in the past. Amazing devices like the Bluboo Picasso, Bluboo Maya, Bluboo Dual etcetera are devices in the Bluboo archive.
Without further ado, let’s get to the business of today; reviewing another great device manufactured by Bluboo, the Bluboo Edge
The Bluboo Dual, just like every other devices from Bluboo stables, is also a budget oriented smartphone which is priced at almost the same price range with some extra features and qualities.
As a preamble, the Bluboo Edge is pretty much inspired of Galaxy S7 Edge. Hold on, don’t get too excited, only the looks and design of the Bluboo Edge are inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge… really much of a replica of the S7 Edge design-wise. However, the Bluboo Edge can be said to be a great smartphone even though it does look too much (or exactly… so to speak) like S7 Edge. Despite this resemblance in appearance, the Bluboo Edge possesses its own uniquely novel identity with loads of amazing specifications and features.
The Bluboo Edge has a very premium built quality and just like the Galaxy S7 Edge, it also comes with a classy dual-sided curvy which makes it pleasant and physically comfy to hold in the hands. Also, there are naturally flowing lines present on the Bluboo Edge and a thin frame design with a screen.
The Bluboo Edge comes out of the box with a scintillating dual curved 5.5″ inch OGS Display which has a resolution of 720×1280 pixels and 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 which sports a better by far resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels and a 534 ppi pixel density.
The 5.5 inch screen produces rich colours with higher contrast giving the user a wonderful visual experience when during activities like playing games, watching movies and even when reading books. One other interesting thing about the Bluboo Edge display is that it is protected against scratch and easy breakage/shattering by corning gorilla glass. Also, the technology of One Glass Solution used here made by SHARP makes the screen of your device curvy and thin at the same time.
PROCESSOR & OS
The Bluboo Edge comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box which will most likely get an Android 7.0 Nougat update.
This device sports an impressive MediaTek MT6737T SoC with ARM Cortex-A53 64 bit quad core CPU that clocks a speed 1.3 GHz along with ARM Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM

With an internal storage capacity of 16GB which can be furthere expanded up to 256 GB through the use of an external SD card, the Bluboo Edge provides enough room for keeping media files and other documents.
The Bluboo Edge sports a 13.0MP rear shooter that produces crisp and crystal clear images.
The front camera is a 8.0 MP shooter. This also didn’t disappoint as it produces sharp image decent quality and vivid colors. This will definitely be a device that selfie lovers would crave and die for.
Bluboo Edge comes with a 2600mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery which is not so much of a battery juice for a device of such capabilities and specifications. However, the device can last for a long time on average and moderate usage.
The Bluboo Edge will go at a retail price of $140
