Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU Vivo Air 16GB

The camera function of BLU Vivo Air 16GB

The main camera of the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" has a capacity of 8.0MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" comes with a 5.0MP 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 Vivo Air 16GB

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB"'s battery capacity is 2100.0mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" 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 Vivo Air 16GB 's size

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" is 67.4mm wide, 139.8mm tall, and 5.1mm thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB", it weighs about 97.0g. The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

Both the size and weight of the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

BLU Vivo Air 16GB 's screen

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" has a 4.8inch 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 Vivo Air 16GB"'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 Vivo Air 16GB

The processing power of the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" is, at 1.7GHz×8(8.0-cores), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" only has 1.0GB 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.

My impression of the overall operation speed of the "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" is at about the mid- to low-end of smartphones. If you use it normally, you likely won't run into any problems, but at times you will notice what it lacks.

BLU Vivo Air 16GB 's storage capacity

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" has 16.0GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

Overall assessment of BLU Vivo Air 16GB

The "BLU Vivo Air 16GB" is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
