Now, the Bluboo D1 looks awesome from the outside in its metal unibody shell and brilliant colors, but what’s it like on the inside? With the popularity of sites like iFixIt and YouTube channels like JerryRigEverything, interest is growing higher and higher about what these phones look like from the inside and how they function. We’re even seeing huge companies like HTC get a lot of flack for how much wasted space is in the inside of the U Ultra!
So, let’s take a look inside. In the video below a skilled tester shows off the insides of the Bluboo D1 and… there really isn’t much wasted space. The team over at Bluboo has done an excellent job with the space it had in a relatively small phone to fit all the internals in. Will this make a huge difference in day-to-day use? Maybe not, but you do get the peace of mind in knowing that the D1 is made my professionals and it has very good build quality.
Just a reminder before you watch the video. If you try this at home, you will more than likely void your warranty so we don’t recommend you do that and we can’t be responsible for any issues you might have because you took your phone apart. Enjoy the video!
If you’re interested in picking up the Bluboo D1, it’s still available on its pre-sale bonus of only $69.99. Bluboo is also giving away some free devices through a special promotion. You’ll find all the details on Bluboo’s website, but hurry up because the presale price ends on Sunday, May 7, 2017.
