Bluboo Edge

The Low Budget S7 Edge?

Hardware for the small purse

At first glance, the Bluboo Edge looks a bit like a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge on the front. Nevertheless, one should not be fooled, because under the hood, this smartphone has built much weaker hardware. The processor amounts to a thrifty one MediaTek MTK6737 SoC, which has a total of 4 cores that clock with a maximum of 1.3GHz. The processor graphic is a Mali-T720 GPU, which copes well with not too demanding games. But if you want to play more graphically demanding games on your future smartphone, you should choose a more powerful smartphone. With a Work memory of 2GB The smartphone is suitable for smaller multitasking tasks and should be sufficient in everyday life for a smooth operation. Of the internal memory falls with only 16GB comparatively small, but can be expanded with an SD memory card to maximally more 256GB. Note, however, that you have to do without the dual-SIM function when using the memory expansion, because the Bluboo Edge is just a so-called "Hybrid-SIM slot" equipped.

A look at the display

Many smartphones are called "Bezel-less" or "Edge-less" announced and actually offer this feature on the render images. Once the device is available, however, the disappointment is often great, because what looked in the photos borderless, is in fact far from it.

If you look at previously published videos to the device, the display is actually a damn near a "bezel-less display".

The disadvantage, however, is that in the case of a display damage, the touch screen will be affected.

Camera, fingerprint scanner and more!

The Home button also offers smart operating options and is illuminated at the outer edges.

An extraordinary feature is a small one Heart Rate Monitorwhich is below the LED flash. It works by a green LED and a photosensitive photodiode that measures the blood flow.
