Bluboo Maya Max should be the most affordable 6-inch phone

Almost every single one from the chinese manufacturers has in their portfolio at least one model belonging to the phablet family, meaning sporting at least 6-inch display. Bluboo are no different and proudly presenting the Bluboo Maya Max as their big screen phone.

Bluboo Maya Max despite its size is still quite budget friendly and getting it is not going to ruin your wallet funds. Closest competition is probably Leagoo Shark 1 and Cubot Max so let’s take a look at the specifications for some basic hardware comparison.

Gizchina News of the week

At first glance it looks almost the same, but that’s not the case. Bluboo Maya Max has the most modern and powerful processor of the three, rear camera with superior Sony sensor, 4G Cat.6 support, VoLTE support, NXP speaker for better sound quality and premium metal build using 6000 series aluminum.

Price comparison is another win for the Bluboo Maya Max, because it’s priced at $129.99, just as the Cubot Max and Leagoo Shark 1 is even pricier with $149.99. So it’s safe to say based on this comparison that Maya Max is the best choice of these three looking at the price/performance ratio. You can find more information about it here and you can buy it until December 31st for example here or here.

    One kinda hue thing you forgot to mention is that the Bluboo Maya Max has USB type C thats far more of a comfort to use than usb micro and its charges faster.

    I would still go for the leagoo as it’s the only one with a FHD display as 720p at this size is a definite no. As for the ‘superior Sony sensor’ please stop pushing crap like that as most phones come with Sony sensors and it means absolutely nothing, the cameras will be awful on all 3 of these phones.

      Bluboo was still the smarter company as 6″ phones with processors this weak ( and the leagoo and Cubot both have even weaker processors that the bluboo) lag and stutter to no end with FHD screens when gaming with games like Asphault and Modern Combat. Bluboo probably noticed this and decided to go with 720p instead of 1080 and it also keeps the price down and still looks very nice. Also the Bluboo’s build quality is considerably better with its almost all metal build and USB type C to boot that charges faster and is far easier to use since u dont have to waste time getting the connection on the right side. Also i have broken 2 usb micro ports in the past precisely because i used to much force and the usb micro was on the wrong side, but usb C fixes all this. The bluboo is by far a much better deal for what you get than any other phone at or near its price mark.
