Review of BLU J5L. Thorough explanation of the pros and cons of its functions and specifications/performances

Created date: 11/19/2020, 14:05:23, Updated date: 11/19/2020, 14:58:48

We've conducted a detailed review of the BLU J5L, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU J5L

BLU J5L's size

The BLU J5L is 2.8inches (72.3mm) wide, 5.7inches (144mm) tall, and 0.4inches (11.2mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the BLU J5L, it weighs about 5.5oz (155g). 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 J5L, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

BLU J5L's screen

The BLU J5L 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 J5L'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 J5L

The processing power of the BLU J5L is comparatively low at 1.4GHz×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 J5L 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 J5L'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 J5L's storage capacity

The BLU J5L has 32GB 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.

Since the BLU J5L 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 J5L

The main camera of the BLU J5L 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 J5L comes with a 8 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.

Overall assessment of BLU J5L

The BLU J5L 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.

The merits and demerits of BLU J5L

The merits of BLU J5L

  • It has a big display that makes it easy to see text and images.

The demerits of BLU J5L

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
