Bluboo S8 Plus Specs Review, Price and Where to buy

Bluboo have announced a new device to their S8 smartphone and this time, it is a bigger and better upgrade to other devices in the series – the Bluboo S8 and Bluboo S8 Lite. Though the Bluboo S8 and S8 Lite have been critiqued as two of the many counterfeit smartphones that stole some shine off the Samsung Galaxy S8, the amazing features they come with makes it easier to overlook the fact that the manufacturers couldn’t take the time to craft up unique designs for the devices.

In fact, the devices had some features that the Galaxy S8 lacks and costs relatively less. Expect a specs comparison between the two devices soon but in the meantime, let’s see what the Bluboo S8 Plus brings to the table.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Bluboo S8 Plus

The Bluboo S8 Plus retains the design and body of its predecessor, the Bluboo S8 (and the Samsung Galaxy S8’s design too). Bluboo didn’t really change much pertaining to the device’s aesthetic and appearance. At the back, the device is covered in a glossy metal body and up front, the curved 3D screen blends smoothly to the sides of the device.

The metal body is made from a combination of Zinc and Titanium and is available in three different colours; Night Black, Sapphire Blue and Mirror Silver. The use of Titanium to coat the S8 Plus is totally impressive. Titanium enacts toughness and durability onto your smartphone. So no matter how often your device falls, you can be at least assured that it wouldn’t get damaged or scratched easily.

Elephone S8 Plus

The Bluboo S8 Plus display is an HD+ display made by SHARP which has a history of making top quality display screens. The device comes with a bigger 6.0 inches display for better and wider visual experience. More screen space for your movies and games. Like the body of the Bluboo S8 Plus, the screen also comes with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 protection against dust and shattering.

PROCESSOR, OS AND STORAGE

Elephone S8 Plus

The Elephone S8 Plus comes with the same 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM as the Elephone S8. The device uses a Hybrid Dual SIM which allows the storage to be expanded to about 256GB by inserting a micro SD card onto the SIM 2 slot.

The Elephone S8 Plus runs on a 1.4 GHz Octa-Core MediaTek MT6750 64-bit processor and comes out of the box with the Android v7.0 Nougat OS. This is quite disappointing though as an Android Oreo OS would have done more justice to the upgrade goal.

CAMERA AND BATTERY

Bluboo S8 Plus

The dual camera sensors have been modified but sadly, toned down to 13 Megapixels as the primary sensor and 3 Megapixels as the secondary sensor. The front camera however remains at 5 Megapixels and comes with special features like FaceCute and Smile Capturing.

The battery capacity was, as expected, beefed up (to 3,600 mAh). The battery is of Lithium Polymer type, remains non-removable, supports fast charge and can provide talk time of up to 32 hours.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY

The Bluboo S8 Plus was launched November 11, 2017 and at a selling price of $149.
