Quick Review of Bluboo Maya
The display is average and not bad for mid-level. In a 5.5 inches screen, HD resolution won’t be a great choice. But it does reduce the battery consumption. The CPU and GPU are very low profile. Cortex-A7 type CPU’s are almost dead these days. Bringing it back as a mid-level is not acceptable.
2GB RAM is satisfying for mid-level performance and multitasking. Coming to the Cameras, both front and back has above average cameras. But, additional features are not seen much except the LED flash and Autofocus for the rear camera. Battery is good and can power the device more than a day easily on casual use.
Overall the bottom line is, everything seems okay except the CPU and GPU, which directly affects the smartphone performance.
Pros and Cons of Bluboo Maya
- Good Cameras in front and back
- Good Battery
