The MAZE Alpha is a powerful phablet with a beautiful 6 inch display (1920 x 1080 resolution) protected by Corning Glass 4 and a 2.5D curve. Among other key features, the phone sports the latest Android 7.0 operating system, Helio P25 Octa Core processor clocked at 2.5GHz and an impressive setup of 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Another notable highlight is the dual back camera (13MP + 5MP) with the SAMSUNG S5K3L8 sensor.
The Bluboo S1 sports a display body ratio of 90% — the phone is, quite literally, all screen with a slim bottom bezel hosting the Home button. The screen is a 5.5 inch FHD display (1920 x 1080 resolution). Just like with the MAZE Alpha, you have the reliable protection of the Corning Glass 4 and the stylish 2.5D curve. There is even the same CPU running things: the Helio P25 Octa Core with 2.5 GHz. But you do get a bit less RAM — 4GB with the same 64GB amount of storage.
The Vkworld Mix Plus comes with a 5.5 inch display with the already familiar 2.5D curve and a slightly bigger bottom bezel than the previous models. You get the Android 7.0 CPU and a bit of a less powerful and fast processor — the MTK6737 Quad Core with 1.3GHz. 3GB of RAM is also a step down from the previous two contenders and you will have 32GB of built-in storage for your files. The back camera comes with a dual lens (8MP + 13MP) and you get a fingerprint sensor for easy unlocking and data protection. Though the Vkworld is less powerful than the MAZE or Bluboo models, this is well reflected in the price — the smartphone is just a bit above $100.
