Hello, Friends! Today I’m going to do a full Specifications review of Maze Comet. The company called Maze have made quite a few decent budget phones over the year and the Maze Comet is one of the most unique looking devices. So, let’s start-
Design & Display: –
The Phone does look nice and overall build quality is good because of the addition of a metal frame. However, I found a SIM Card Slot on the left-hand side of the phone. The Maze Comet is quite thick measuring at almost 11mm and the device weighs over 235 grams, the reason for that may be a huge 4000 mAh battery inside the phone.
A 5.7-inch IPS HD+ display sports 18 by 9 aspect ratio and it is a great panel overall. One thing that may bother you is huge bezels on the top and bottom making the phones look outdated.
When it comes to cameras Maze implemented a 13-megapixel shooter on the back and 8-megapixel snapper on the front. The buttons are quite nice but they are located on the left side of the device which is not convenient for me.
There is only one navigation button that works well ad it also doubles as he fast and accurate fingerprint scanner. You can also use on-screen navigation keys if you wish. So, there is a notification LED light and a single bottom mounted loudspeakers quality is pretty good for a budget phone but the sound gets distorted at the highest volume settings.
The Comet main camera has 13-megapixel with LED flash and the Front camera has 8-megapixel shooter.
The overall image quality is quite bad but keep in mind that I could only test the camera on a dark and a cloudy day. Still, I expected better quality pictures for a 150 dollars smartphone both in good and bad lighting.
Selfie photos quality is a lot better and the pictures look great on social media. The 1080p video quality is mediocre like on most of the phones in this price range and the camera lacks some essential features like continuous Autofocus. Selfie videos are recorded only in 480p and therefore the quality is kind of poor.
Processor & Memory: –
The Maze Comet is powered by MediaTek MT6750T which clocked at Octa-Core 1.5GHz with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. It also comes with Mali T860 MP2 Graphics Card.
This phone ships with pretty good specs considering the price of the phone. Also, it has a Hybrid Dual SIM Card tray for storage expansion. The 3D gaming performance is pretty good even if you play games on the highest graphics settings. There are just a few skipped frames but no serious lag or stutter that is really impressive for any budget smartphone in general. The Comet gets warm quite quickly but it does not overheat to uncomfortable levels.
I always like budget phones that ship would almost Stock Android with just a few added features. You can choose between the on-screen navigation keys or physical button navigation and customize the LED notification light.
There is also plenty of gesture and motion controls that work okay but I use just a few of them. As usual, I have installed a lot of apps to see how the phone performs on the daily basis and the device performed very well. You should expect a smooth and fast overall performance without any lag.
I found all the connectivity options to work well even the GPS signal reception and accuracy were good. If you like using VR headsets this phone may not be for you since it has only three sensors and there is no gyroscope on-board.
The Maze Comet comes with a 4000 milliamp-hours battery which performs well. We can expect to have the lights on for the entire day or more depending on the how you use the phone. I could get about 7 hours of screen time which is a great result. However, it takes about 2 hours to fully charge the phone with a supplied charger.
The Maze Comet aims to be a unique budget phone and well, it succeeds in a lot of ways. It does look pretty cool despite those huge bezels. The overall performance is good, the display is sharp, the battery life is good and I like the Stock Android user interface.
However, I don’t like the button placement, the SIM card tray rattles a little bit but most importantly, the overall image quality could be better even for a budget phone. All-in-all, the Maze Comet still has more Pros and Cons and it still brings a lot of value for the price that is packed into the unique looking body. But as always please consider if these shortcomings are important to you or not.
