Hey guys, hope you are doing great. Time to review another smartphone- Maze Alpha 4G phablet smartphone. You must have not heard about the Maze Alpha 4G phablet, Maze is another Chinese smartphone manufacturing company trying to spread its roots. The design of this smartphone is pretty good and has a bezel less display with a little chin. After the Xiaomi Mi Mix, this full bezel less display is getting very popular. Now, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a similar display. The price of this smartphone is the best thing you’ll hear about today. Maze Alpha is priced at just $179.99 and this 6 inched smartphone looks pretty in hands. Now let’s start the review and let me tell you more about this smartphone.

Design and Display
Coming to the design of this smartphone, alpha is more than a phone. With zero bezel display the phone looks stunning. It has a small chin that consists of a home screen button and front facing camera. Nothing much is there on the front face of this smartphone. Now on the rear side, it has a dual camera that captures absolute focused pictures followed by the Maze logo. The phone has a premium looks and it delivers more than its price. Good news is that the Maze Alpha has Gorilla Glass to prevent the screen from getting shattered.
Now the display of this smartphone is fantastic, the 6 inched display with bezel-less technology gives a premium feel in the hands. Though you’ll find yourself a little more protective while holding Maze Alpha in your hands. As the display looks fragile because of the bezel-less technology. It has only a big display on the front side, a home screen button embedded with finger print sensor and a small chin. The display has a resolution of 1080p with 376 PPI. Though the pixel density is not up to the mark for a big 6″ display smartphone, but at the same time the price of this smartphone is just around $179. Big deal, huh?
Hardware & Performance
The Maze Alpha smartphone has a plastic build and a sleek look. Here is the details of the dimensions- 6.29 x 3.25 x 0.32 inches. The smartphone is sleek and looks good in hands, though it is pretty heavy to carry as the weight of Alpha is around 225 gms. At the same time, Maze Alpha is powered by Helio MediaTek P10 Helio P25 chipset clocking at 2.5 GHz speed. I am not a fan of MediaTek processors, Though the performance of this smartphone is fairly ok.
The clocking speed is decent and now coming to the GPU of Alpha, it is powered with Mali T880GPU clocking at 900 MHz speed, again the GPU performance is not up to the mark as you’ll notice certain lags while playing big games. RAM is another pro of this smartphone. At $179.99, you are getting 4GB of RAM which is worth the price. Moving on, let’s discuss further more features of this smartphone. 64 GB of storage is considered good and for such price, it becomes better.
Camera & Battery
Now coming to the dual camera of Maze Alpha smartphone, it has a dual camera on the rear side to capture detailed pictures. With 15MP+5MP dual cameras on the rear side with f/2.2 aperture, you can take good quality pictures even after zooming the target. I am not going to compare this camera with other flagship phones that brings loads in your pockets, as the price of this smartphone is really affordable and economical. The camera quality is far above the average when comparing with its price tag. The front camera is 5 MP to take selfies, the quality is not so nice. Though it has all the other important features like, touch to focus, auto focus, face detection and HDR. Overall I’ll give thumbs up to the camera of Alpha as they have given much more for its price and the camera is worth the price.
Again a positive thing of Maze Alpha is its battery, it has 40000 mAh battery that can give you a backup of 8-10 hours on medium usage. While, the standby time is not so nice, as the battery drains fast even if you are not using the phone. It supports fast charging with 9V/2A input. With Type C USB cable, the transfer rate is fast and your phone would certainly be charged at a faster rate.
Verdict- WIDEN YOUR WORLD
We have now discussed various aspect related to the Maze Alpha smartphone. At the time of writing this post, the price of this smatphone is $179.99 and for such a price, the company is providing much more that makes it worth its price. With dual camera, decent storage, amazing bezel-less design and all other features like finger print sensor, expandable storage, Gorilla Glass protection, and dual SIM feature, Maze Alpha is the killer deal. I’d strongly recommend you to go for it as for $179, you are getting a feature packed smartphone with amazing design and decent performance.
