Bluboo Maya Phone Hands on, CPU, Camera, Battery, OS Review


Bluboo has officially announced Bluboo Maya, the latest cheap Android6.0 smartphone which can compete with other brands like Ulefone U007 and UMI London. They all belong to the MTK6580 Quad core Android6.0 smartphones. But they have difference in its design and functions. We will introduce Bluboo Maya for you first to let what’s new in this smartphone.




Bluboo Maya is outstanding in its exquisite design. It adopts 3D arc dimond texture,which can provides us with the metal feeling instead of plastic, of course, better grip feeling. It uses 5.5inch HD JDI screen with 1280*720p screen resolution which features 94% color saturation, and high contrast. Meanwhile, it also has 2.5D arc edge screen to make the phone look more smooth. When we watch videos, it shows very clearly and vividly, of course, it would be better if it had FHD IPS screen.



Bluboo Maya is powered by MTK6580 Quad core 1.3Ghz processor, which can show more stability and power saving compared with other quad core processors. Meanwhile, it has improved to RAM 2GB ROM 16GB which can make us do multi-tasking freely, and store enough videos for offline watching. Although this time Bluboo doesn’t choose the latest MTK6737 quad core 64bit processor 4G LTE, it still runs well by playing common games for our daily use. After all, sometimes, we don’t need 4G LTE.



The other nice feature is the dual camera, Bluboo Maya has  Front 8.0MP and Rear 13.0MP with LED flashlight, when we test the rear camera,  we can’t express how fast it takes pictures. We can take some professional level and refined photos about our life. Besides, the front camera is up to 8MP which can set up the customized beauty camera App, so that we can make beautification in different modes. When we set up in smart self-timer mode, we don’t have to press the button to take pictures. It can help us do beautification and do selfie in best angle. Of course, it has other modes like V gesture mode, smile mode, smart waiting mode,  and fun in dress up to decorate ourselves in different style. So Bluboo Maya can be the nice photographing budget smartphone until now.



Bluboo Maya also has long time 3,000mAh battery capacity , 4.35V battery voltage, which has improved its power saving ability than 4.2V battery core. When we test to play games, watch movies, and run other apps in two hours, there are still half of battery power left. So we don’t have to charge it every day. And it can support up to 300 hours standby time.  So in view of its battery, it can compete with Meizu M3S.

OS and Other Features


It runs the latest Android 6.0 OS which supports customized UI to provide us with various options and easier operation and more 20% power saving. Meanwhile, it support IP63 level waterproof and dustproof function and is made of aviation level ultra slim aluminum frame. We like the off screen gestures which can access to the apps quickly and easily. It support dual sim card, dual standby, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, etc.


Bluboo Maya is a good mid-range budget smartphone. We are quite satisfied with its exquisite diamond design, individual camera setting modes, smart gesture motions, and durable battery, of course, if Bluboo Maya could use mtk6737 chipset to support 4G LTE, it would be better. After all, most of smartphones currently are 4G phones. We believe Bluboo want to provide the cheapest smartphone for users, they choose to MTK6580 processor. And this time, Bluboo also brings us surprise in its price. Right now you only need to catch it at $9.99.

  3. I’m looking for a 60$~70$ budget phone with basic functions …4G network support is needed. I noticed many models in this price range like Umi London,Doogee X5 max, Ulephone u007, Bluboo Maya, Homtom Ht7, but they only support 3G. :(( Lately Uhans a101 caught my attention. It’s just what I’ve wanted. The only concern is I have little knowledge about this Uhans company. Can you possibly get a uhans a101 to review??
