Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU Studio Energy

The CPU performance of BLU Studio Energy

The processing power of the BLU Studio Energy 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 Studio Energy 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 Studio Energy'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 Studio Energy's storage capacity

The BLU Studio Energy 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 Studio Energy 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.

The camera function of BLU Studio Energy

The main camera of the BLU Studio Energy 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 Studio Energy comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of BLU Studio Energy

The BLU Studio Energy has a battery with a quite large capacity of 5000mAh.Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the BLU Studio Energy is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

BLU Studio Energy's size

The BLU Studio Energy is 28.1 in (71.5 mm) wide, 56.9 in (144.5 mm) tall, and 4.1 in (10.4 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 Studio Energy, it weighs about 6.3 oz (180 g).It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

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

BLU Studio Energy's screen

The BLU Studio Energy has a 5 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the BLU Studio Energy'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.

Overall assessment of BLU Studio Energy

The BLU Studio Energy'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.
