I have published my first impressions of the Bluboo Maya Max. This 6-inch display smartphone is powered by Android 6 Marshmallow, an Octa-core 1.5 GHz Mediatek processor and 3 GB of RAM. That isn’t a bad combination at all. The question now is, What would our Bluboo Maya Max benchmark tests throw up and how does the device perform in actual use?
In regular use, the Maya Max runs smooth. We would have been surprised had it performed otherwise. The user interface is a very mild skinning of Android 6 Marshmallow and it supports themes too, which we think is nice. That way, you can customise the look and feel to your personal taste. But it feels light and breezy, which is good.
Bluboo Maya Max Benchmark Tests
Up next, we threw our usual trio of benchmark tests at the Maya Max. The benchmark services are: AnTutu, Geekbench, and Quadrant. Here is how the Maya Max scored on each of them:
- AnTuTu: 44297
- Geekbench 4: 598 Single-Core / 2476 Multi-Core
- Quadrant: 20792
The results from the benchmark tests are within the expected range of the phone’s configuration. There are no surprises or letdowns. As far as we can tell, the Bluboo Maya Max benchmark tests returned good scores.
But then, tests are tests. We had to go beyond just benchmark scores or regular usage. So we threw in something heavy: high performance games.
Bluboo Maya Max Gaming Performance
Spider-Man Unlimited is a favourite game of mine, and so it came to pass that it was selected as one of the games that we ran on the Maya Max. How did the phone handle Spidey versus the bad guys? What other game did we play and how did it fare? You will have to wait to find out in the full review.
In the meantime, if you haven’t yet, you can read up the full Bluboo Maya Max specifications. Hang around for more feature articles on the Bluboo Maya Max, as well as our full review.
