Summary of BLU Studio 5.5C performance and functions
The size and weight of the BLU Studio 5.5C
The body of the BLU Studio 5.5C is 3.1 inches (79 mm) wide, 6.1 inches (155 mm) long, and 0.4 inches (9.9 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 5.5 inch, and it weighs 178 oz (178 g). Its size is large compared to normal smart phones. While it may be slightly difficult to use with one hand, the screen is large and easy to see. I think this is a nice balance. It is recommended for those who want large screens instead of operating with one hand. It is quite heavy and not really suitable for operating with one hand.

Display of the BLU Studio 5.5C
The BLU Studio 5.5C has a LCD screen with a resolution of 480 x 854. When comparing it with ordinary smartphones the screen display is fairly inferior. I can't say it's a beautiful screen.
The battery life of the BLU Studio 5.5C
The BLU Studio 5.5C has a battery capacity of 2820 mAh. The battery's capacity is slightly larger than standard smart phones.
The processing capability of the BLU Studio 5.5C
The BLU Studio 5.5C uses the Mediatek MT6582 CPU with 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). The memory capacity is 512.0MB. It has low spec processing power and its performance is lower than typical smartphones. Also its memory capacity is quite a bit lower than ordinary smartphones. As this capacity is chronically insufficient apps will frequently close forcefully and apps will stop operating.
The camera of the BLU Studio 5.5C
The BLU Studio 5.5C has a back camera with 5 MP. The rear camera performance is low compared to other smartphones. In general, performance tends to feel insufficient more often than excellent.
Review of the product design of the BLU Studio 5.5C
Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets
When deciding whether to buy an BLU Studio 5.5C, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the BLU Studio 5.5C around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The BLU Studio 5.5C is easily held with one hand, and its size allows it to be firmly held. It is small enough to be held in one hand together with things like a wallet, but this may be a bit difficult for ladies with small hands.
Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket
It doesn't feel strange even when you put the BLU Studio 5.5C in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.
Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket
Sometimes taking the BLU Studio 5.5C out of your pocket doesn't go so well as it gets caught on fabric easily. It's safe to assume that some people will find it stressful that it is difficult to take it out smoothly.
Ease of getting it in and out of your bag
The BLU Studio 5.5C is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.
Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling
It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the BLU Studio 5.5C by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.
Ease of grasping the phone in one hand
To many people, the BLU Studio 5.5C is of a size which allows it to be operated with one hand. Still, for people with small hands, it may be a bit difficult to do so. It becomes slightly larger when a case is added, and depending on the person, I think this may make it slightly harder to operate with one hand.
The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand
The BLU Studio 5.5C feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.
Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand
When using the BLU Studio 5.5C with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.
The size of the buttons on the App
The buttons displayed on the BLU Studio 5.5C are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
Inputting keys with one hand with the BLU Studio 5.5C can be done but this grip tends to feel unstable. Because of this sometimes you can drop it carelessly when trying to type quickly. If you take your time when typing though you will be unlikely to drop it.
Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion
I think it is easy to use the buttons on the BLU Studio 5.5C as they are displayed in large sizes. However, it is difficult not to make typos when typing at high speeds. I don't think you will feel it difficult to type if you are careful when typing.
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the BLU Studio 5.5C is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.
The size of the letters and the ease of operation
Because the display of the BLU Studio 5.5C is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.
Ease of reading sentences
The screen of the BLU Studio 5.5C doesn't display characters very clearly, and the outlines of letters can appear jagged. It's not at a level where it would inconvenience you when displaying large text, but smaller text can feel pretty hard to read.
The beauty of the overal screen
I can't say that the screen of the BLU Studio 5.5C is very beautiful. The dots that often appear on digital images are visible when photographs or videos are on screen which can make the display seem a little dull. Every now and then I did feel it was a bit ugly, but this probably won't be an issue for regular use.
Ease of writing sentences
For the BLU Studio 5.5C, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
When using the BLU Studio 5.5C for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.
Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?
The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.
Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?
The phone can't handle it if you keep going back and forth between apps. For instance, if you keep going back and forth between your SNS app and chat app, the operation may be overloaded and, as a result, the apps may be closed or crash.
