BLUBOO Dual Review – Dual Camera Phone With Aircraft Grade Body

I think from the name itself, you will get the idea of this phone. BLUBOO Dual I think is an option rather than an alternative to DOOGEE Shoot 1, since I’m not comparing them. Both of these are good phones especially for photography lover, with budgets of course.

BLUBOO Dual: Dual rear camera

I think the name is inspired by its dual rear camera which is 13MP as the primary camera which the left one and 2MP secondary camera which the right one. Not to compare with the other that I previously write about, this phone is quite good to take bokeh photos with the F/2.0 aperture. The problem is, still overexposure. If you take photos under sunlight, they always seem to be too bright. Other than that, photos seem to be sharp.

The good thing is BLUBOO Dual uses its own camera app where it has a feature called “SLR”. Of course, this feature is to take photos that look like DSLR. The app also have additional filters and modes, and there is also white balance, you know for the overexposure. Now, the selfie camera which stated on its official site as 8MP that interpolated from 5MP. The selfie camera also has the same problem overexposure, other than that it is a pretty nice camera.

BLUBOO Dual: Aviation Aluminum Alloy and Multitouch

BLUBOO claimed that the Dual back body is made of Aviation Aluminum Alloy which means that the back body uses the aluminum use to make aircraft. The body does look and feel tough especially with the nonremovable, I mean I do not know how to remove the, back cover. There’s also a video showing some guys hammering the Dual’s back cover. I guess they try to prove their point that it is made with the same aluminum used in aircraft, and oh did I tell you that he also torched the Dual back. It is like, “today I think I want to hammer my phone” or “today I bored lets torched my phone”.

It also features a ten-point multitouch, you know the more points a touch screen support the better the accuracy. This one is good for you who love to play games on your phone, for me I like CS:GO more.

BLUBOO Dual: Specification

From the specifications perspective, the BLUBOO Dual is exactly the same as the DOOGEE Shoot 1, again not comparing just saying. It comes with MediaTek MT6737T 1.5GHz quad-core processor and ARM Mali T720MP MP1 650MHz graphics. It also has an independent photo processor but BLUBOO never mentions anything about the core or the speed. The memory is 2GB with 16GB storage and with the option to expand it up to 256GB.

The display is 5.5 inches with Full HD capabilities. This phone comes with a 3,000mAh battery but I don’t know about fast charging since it took around 3 hours to fully charge this phone. The BLUBOO Dual did come with a fingerprint scanner, at the back, the best thing is you can unlock the phone with a gentle touch. I’d like to mention this also, the game benchmark for this is 20.2 frame-per-second on average and maximum resolution is 1800×1080.

BLUBOO Dual: Other Features

BLUBOO Dual comes with USB OTG for a thumb drive, card reader, mouse or keyboard, or pretty much anything that On-The-Go support. One, or two, thing(s) that I like is, or are, wet-hand operations and glove mode. Another which I think quite convenient is the three fingers swipe down to take screenshots. One more think, I guess I have to mention this, you have to choose between a second SIM card or microSD card, oh yeah it happened once there’s no need to mention to who but it did happen.

BLUBOO Dual: Software

Once again, when we talk about software, I love to talk about the updates. Update normally bring fresh features and bugs fix. For this phone, currently, it comes with Marshmallow as the stock operating system. But there is I one thing that I like about the interface which it BLUBOO did very well customizing it. I love the customs icons and with all the animations. You can also customize the on-screen buttons.

    In you testing did you try the gps? It was a surprise to me just how awful it is on the Dual. Will not hold position or direction for more than a minute at a time. People wanting to buy this phone need to take this into consideration – that and the gyroscope operating in reverse :S

      It’s nice that you mention it. I did try to use Waze on the Dual, it worked fine, but I’d like to say it quite slow. I mean, when I was at a roundabout a was supposed to exit a the fourth exit, but it showed that I exit at the third exit. This happened not all the time, but a lot.
