Is Samsung S8 worth 5x times more than Bluboo S8 ?


Bluboo S8

Sometimes the chinese manufacturers just need to prove a point no matter what and that’s where all the comparisons articles come from. And today we have quite one of those David vs. Goliath battles with Bluboo S8 trying to joust against more than 5x times pricier Samsung S8 flagship. Well the names are almost the same after all, right ?

In the following tables you can clearly see all the main aspects of the Bluboo S8 and its budget version Bluboo S8 Lite put directly against the Samsung flagship’s specifications. And while it’s obvious it would get crushed in most of the cathegories, just keep in mind you can have five of those for one Samsung or in case of the Lite one even ten pieces.

But there is also an interesting point hidden in the somewhat dubious comparison tables and pictures, because Bluboo stated that they are also planning a high-end version Bluboo S8+, which should be equipped with the powerful Mediatek Helio X30, 6 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM. But that’s still more of a planned project than actual phone already in the making so we will need to wait for that.

If you would be interested in the Bluboo S8 models then you can easily find more information about them on the official website.

    Well… yes it does!

    Let’s examine some minor details.
    Galaxy S8, with 5,8″ screen has a width of 68.1mm
    Bluboo S8, with 5,7″ screen has a width of 70.6mm. Bezels = FAILED the infinity display.
    Not to mention the screen quality (AMOLED vs TFT) or the resolution or the lack of extra functions like NFC, 5Ghz Wifi etc.

      Also let’s consider what software update you may or may not receive from Bluboo, the lousy SoC and so on ….
      I’m not sure it’s worth 5x more but for sure the Galaxy S8 is worth a lot more and no, I’m not really a Samsung fan.
      If Bluboo really wanted to make a good product they should have went for some better specs and maybe it would have cost twice as much but then we could indeed compare it to the Galaxy S8.

      As it is there’s just no comparing them, the Galaxy S8 is … well in a different Galaxy. We could compare it to the Nubia Z17 for instance but to the Bluboo S8 … it’s a good joke.

    This is not a Joke, right??

    there is a lie about screen/body ratio :
    galaxy / bluboo : 148,9*68,1/(149,5*70,6) = 0,96
    adding 5.8/5.7*sqrt(2)=1.017
    if galaxy ratio is 83% then bluboo ratio is 78,3%

    Tri-bezel-less??? lol It’s got top and bottom bezels, therefore it cannot be tri-bezel-less. That would be the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
