The Bluboo Edge was a smartphone that was a knockoff of Samsung’s Galaxy Edge smartphones. In light of the new smartphones, it is no longer being sold and has been discontinued. It has a Dual Curvy design and a SHARP 5.5-inch OGS HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The smartphone featured a dual-sided curving shape that was not only aesthetically beautiful and agreeable, but also physically comfortable and fit well in the palm of the hand. Thanks to CNC cutting and polishing, the item has a streamlined design with a smooth and elegant finish that makes it gorgeous. The frame is just 0.8mm thick, allowing it to be free of the inferential bezel. The gadget boasts a five-point touch panel with two layers that is more precise and sensitive than ever before. The touch-panel has also been strengthened, making it more sturdy and long-lasting. The gadget runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and features a 256GB TF expandable storage slot.

TWRP Recovery: A Quick Overview and Benefits
TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is a community-driven open source project. Your device will be able to install any custom firmware, root it, use mod zip files for modifications, use Xposed Modules for customizable features, and perform one-click root and unroot operations after flashing the TWRP. Apart from that, it enables you to create a Full Nandroid Backup and restore it later, flash image files with a single click, remove bloatware, and overclock and underclock your device. After flashing any image file, TWRP can simply wipe Wipe, Cache, and Data to reflect the changes and correct minor cache issues.
Your Bluboo Edge phone must have an unlocked bootloader in order to install TWRP. That implies you must first unlock the bootloader before rooting and customizing your smartphone.
