Hello, Friends! Today, I’m going to take a look at Maze Blade Review. The maze is a newcomer to the smartphone game and they have made one of the best-looking budget phones. Is this phone worth your attention? Let’s find out-
Design & Display: –
This smartphone design is one of the key selling points of the Maze Blade. You have glass on the front and rear metal chassis, metal buttons and the phone looks more expensive than it is obviously the glass bag attracts smudges quickly. But that is the case with all glass made phones.
However, I found that the volume rocker rattles just a bit also with receive programmable key which can be mapped to almost any app you want. And it will open it straight from the standby mode. Also, this button works as a shutter key in the camera app.
I found a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display to be pretty sharp and vibrant for everyday use. Also, you have a LED notification light which sits next to the 8-megapixel selfie shooter and nicely backlit capacitive keys.
The fingerprint scanner is accurate and it can unlock the phone straight from the standby mode. As far as optics, you have a 13-megapixels shooter with a dual LED flash.
The loudspeaker quality does not really impress like on most of the budget devices.
This smartphone can take decent looking daylight images considering this is a cheap phone. The level of detail could be higher, the dynamic range adjustment could be more accurate. But in general, you can take some decent looking daylight images.
The low-light camera performance does not impress like on most of the cheap phones.
The selfie pictures will definitely do the click for social media needs but there could be slightly more detail. The 1080p video quality is above average. Surprisingly, the sound recording quality is decent for a cheap phone. The Selfie video quality is kind of mediocre but it’s possible to use the camera for video chats or other stuff.
Performance & Memory: –
This smartphone has pretty nice specifications for the price that include an Octa-Core MTK6753 chipset, 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigabytes of expandable storage. These specs assure is smooth user-interface performance but when it comes to gaming you should expect some skipped frames and stutter in some games. However, the Asphalt 8 runs quite okay on medium graphics but the phone gets warmed very quickly.
The Blade ships would be pretty much stock looking Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. There are some added features and customization options just the name of few, there are quite a few gesture and motion controls that work quite well but some of them are quite slow to respond.
You can also choose the colours of the LED notification light use the one-hand operation mode that works quite well or use the fingerprint app lock feature to lock certain apps. Most importantly if the user-interface performance has been smooth and fluid. I have no complaints here.
It surprised me most because the call quality is really good. Other features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth work fine and even GPS is quite accurate for a cheap phone.
The 3000 mAh milliamp hour battery performs quite well. I was able to get five hours of screen on time which is a good result considering the fact that the phone has a 5.5-inch display.
The Maze Blade is one of the better-looking budget phones out there. It has decent specs. It is fast on the daily basis and the camera can take decent looking daylight pictures. Obviously, you should consider some caveats like rattling volume key, mediocre gaming and low-light camera performance. But in general, the Maze Blade is a decent offering for the price especially if you managed to get it for as low as 120 dollars.
