Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU Neo X Plus

The camera function of BLU Neo X Plus

The main camera of the BLU Neo X Plus has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The BLU Neo X Plus comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of BLU Neo X Plus

The BLU Neo X Plus's battery capacity is 2500 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the BLU Neo X Plus has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

BLU Neo X Plus's size

The BLU Neo X Plus is 3.1 inches (77.9 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (152.6 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.3 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the BLU Neo X Plus, it weighs about 162 oz (162 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the BLU Neo X Plus, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

BLU Neo X Plus's screen

The BLU Neo X Plus has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the BLU Neo X Plus's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of BLU Neo X Plus

The processing power of the BLU Neo X Plus is comparatively low at 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The BLU Neo X Plus only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the BLU Neo X Plus's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

BLU Neo X Plus's storage capacity

The BLU Neo X Plus has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the BLU Neo X Plus is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of BLU Neo X Plus

The BLU Neo X Plus's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of BLU Neo X Plus

The merits of BLU Neo X Plus

  • With the large display you can comfortably use it to watch videos and play games.

The demerits of BLU Neo X Plus
