Comparison of the bezel-free BLUBOO S1 against the bezel-free Samsung S8

Previously BLUBOO had their tri-bezel-less designed BLUBOO S1 compared with the Xiao Mi Mix and proved that the BLUBOO S1 would offer an affordable alternative to the successful Mi Mix model. Seems like they are not satisfied and today we have yet another of its comparison. This time they choose a much stronger competitor, the Samsung S8. Would the BLUBOO S1 prevail in this comparison?


Well, for starters let’s have a close look at their specs:

Judging from the specs on paper, though both featuring full display design, it’s quite obvious that the Samsung S8 provides superior configurations, like more powerful processor and higher resolution display. But the BLUBOO S1 has advantages in aspects including dual rear cameras with bokeh effect, ultra-high 90% screen-to-body ratio and 3500mAh larger battery. What’s more, the BLUBOO S1 can offer way lower price tag than the Samsung S8. Well, of course, which one you want to choose is totally up to you.


As mentioned previously, the BLUBOO S1 would hit the market in June so you don’t have to wait too long. If you are interested to know more about the BLUBOO S1 model, please keep a close watch on the official website:
