BLU A5L Photos, Specs, and Reviews

Created date: 02/09/2021, 07:27:58, Updated date: 02/09/2021, 09:38:48

A thorough review of the characteristics and specifications of the BLU A5L. We provide a detailed evaluation of the phone in terms of usability – including ease of holding, screen visibility, performance, image quality, and multitasking capabilities – as well as functionality, looking at the battery and camera.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU A5L

BLU A5L's size

The BLU A5L is 2.5 inches (64.5 mm) wide, 4.9 inches (124.5 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10.6 mm) 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 A5L, it weighs about 118 oz (118 g). 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 A5L make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of BLU A5L

The processing power of the BLU A5L is, at 1.4GHz×4(Quad core), 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 A5L has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the BLU A5L rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

BLU A5L's storage capacity

The BLU A5L has 64GB 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 A5L 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.

BLU A5L's screen

The BLU A5L has a 4 inch screen. It comes in a standard size, and the screen is adequate for most uses. Some users may feel that they would rather have a larger screen, however.

The screen quality of the BLU A5L is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The camera function of BLU A5L

The performance of the BLU A5L's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The BLU A5L 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.

Overall assessment of BLU A5L

The BLU A5L 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 A5L

The merits of BLU A5L

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • Its light and quite easy to hold.

The demerits of BLU A5L

  • The back camera is quite low-spec, so its not really suited for taking pictures to upload to social media.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
