You'll need to do more work than that. Like post pics and specs of the bikes. And try to narrow your search to one or two bikes. Help yourself a bit.

I did a quick search; Tides (aluminum) looks like a Mariner but with a slightly curved main frame tube, and a different weld reinforcement at the top front of the seat tube, decent crankset. Interestingly, Hunter is a steel frame, looks like the original Speed D7 but doesn't say what steel (it matters), cheap crank. Both have 36 spoke wheels. Hard to see if hinge is simple QR clamp style (cheap) or over-center clamp like Dahon Mariner and Speed. Both are same price on amazon, $400, a bit less than half of similar Dahons. Pace (not Pacer) is 14" wheel 3-speed.

Go with either a Zizzo or Origami folder. Both are good quality, and both provide excellent customer service.

Both are more widely known and comparable price. I think Zizzo if typical tires and rim brakes, Origami Bull if you (the OP) want fatter tires and disc brakes.
