Let us compare the design, display, camera, performance and price range of this smartphones.
In Design: The Bluboo Dual has a better design
In terms of design, the bluboo Dual is a clear winner, it features an aluminum alloy back case and a 2.5D curved double layered touch panel as against the high-def touch panel of the Ulefone Gemini. Both of the smartphones features a metal design, the distinctive unibody metal design with round corners of the bluboo look very classy, the fingerprint sensor is located at the back.
The Ulefone Gemini volume and power buttons is at the left edge which is not a very good placement in our opinion, it might takes sometimes for users to get used to it. It also features a standard home physical button with an inbuilt fingerprint sensor at the front.
As a matter of fact, the dual has a better design than the Gemini.
Display: Same display slight difference
In the display and screen section, no winner will be selected. They are both the same. Both of the two smartphones features IPS Full HD 5.5-inch display with 1080×1920 resolutions with 401 PPI density. The Gemini can sometimes be too bright, when you are using the phone in a dark environment but this problem can easily be solved by downloading a screen filter app from playstore.

The dual has only 2GB RAM and 16GB of memory but it has the same processor like the Gemini and they both have a MicroSD card support with memory expansion up to 256GB. Both of the smartphones are equipped with an MTK6737 low frequency processor at 1.5GHz.
The dual has an AnTuTu benchmark score around 30,398 points, while the Gemini score a higher 30,700 points due to it 3GB of RAM for multi-tasking. In our daily usage the Gemini has a better performance.
Battery: Still the same

Th Bluboo Dual is powered by a 3000mAh Li-ion power high capacity battery, it has 4.35v battery core which improves the battery capacity by 15% compared to the normal 4.2v battery core. One thing to note is that the Gemini sometimes heat up on heavy usage, we hope this can be fix with a software update.
The dual lens rear camera is the unique selling point of this two smartphones. The bluboo dual is equipped with a main 13.0MP Sony IMX135 Exmor RScamera that captures static images while the second 2.0MP camera subsidiary is there to help capture the picture depth.
