The Bluboo S8 is clearly a clone version of prestigious Samsung Galaxy S8. It seems this is the trending thing now… Other companies trying to copy Samsung. Just recently, Ulefone cloned the same Galaxy S8 and called it Ulefone F2.
Well, the main advantage of these clone phones is that they are cheaper when compared to the original versions. For instance, the original Galaxy S8 costs around N284,000 while this clone version called Bluboo S8 costs just 45,000 with similar design and hardware features but lesser internal and software features.
In terms of hardware, the Bluboo S8 has 5.7 inches display size, with an 83% screen-to-body ratio, has an Infinity Display, has a rear fingerprint scanner, and a rear dual camera. This is a blatant rip-off of the Galaxy S8.
However, the major differences are in the internals – the processor is less powerful, it has less RAM, and the OS is a flavour of Android 7 called 360 OS. So, expect differences in performance and in the user experience. That is, if the offer of a Galaxy S8 clone that costs much less appeals to you. Here is the phone’s specs and price.
