BLU View 1's size
The BLU View 1 is 2.8 inches (71.1 mm) wide, 5.6 inches (142.2 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10.1 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 View 1, it weighs about 153 oz (153 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.

BLU View 1's screen
The BLU View 1 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 CPU performance of BLU View 1
