Bluboo S1 and S8 Have Arrived To The Philippines

by | Jan 3, 2018 | Smartphones

You might have heard about Bluboo, a Chinese OEMs who appear to have zero qualms in taking what works in other phones to its own products. For example, the Bluboo S1 is a ripoff of the Xiaomi Mi Mix, with its bezel-less display, large chin, and bottom-mounted selfie camera. The Bluboo S8, meanwhile, is a complete photocopy of the Samsung Galaxy S8, but with limited features and a 150 USD price tag.
