So, stay tuned as I proudly present to you the review of this awesome piece from BLUBOO – the BLUBOO S8 smartphone.
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
As revealed in the BLUBOO S8 design article, the back cover of the smartphone is a major selling point. Its IML electroplating technology drags out excellent multi-colour effects to the visuals and also provides scratch resistance. The halo and the lines further contribute to its aesthetic let alone its soft feel. The frontal has no side bezels while the top bezel camps the front camera and the earpiece. The rear dual camera and fingerprint spring out in a very cool vertical format. Fully wrapped in metal, it has three colour options which are: Black, Gold and Blue.
The smartphone has an incredibly large 5.7 inches HD+ display. Its IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has a pixel density of 282 ppi with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels.
