Real Life Benchmark & Tests
In Antutu Benchmark 6.2.0 Bluboo Maya smartphone achieves a good score for a budget device, about  22.700 points. In Antutu Video Tester 3.0 Bluboo Maya scores 467 points, a fair score in this test ranking. It played smoothly almost all video file types; this firmware version fully supports 11 video & audio format files, it partially supports 7 video & audio format files and doesn’t manage to play only 12 files.

Wifi Internet speed tested gets also pretty good values: over 25 Mbps in download and the upload speed was also about 22 Mbps. The router used in this test is Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router, mounted in another room.

Bluboo Maya is a good mid-range budget smartphone. We are quite satisfied with its exquisite diamond design, individual camera setting modes, smart gesture motions, and durable battery, of course, if Bluboo Maya could use mtk6737 chipset to support 4G LTE, it would be better. After all, most of smartphones currently are 4G phones. We believe Bluboo want to provide the cheapest smartphone for users, they choose to MTK6580 processor.

    I’m looking for a 60$~70$ budget phone with basic functions …4G network support is needed. I noticed many models in this price range like Umi London,Doogee X5 max, Ulephone u007, Bluboo Maya, Homtom Ht7, but they only support 3G. :(( Lately Uhans a101 caught my attention. It’s just what I’ve wanted. The only concern is I have little knowledge about this Uhans company. Can you possibly get a uhans a101 to review??
