Review of the product design of the BLU G5 Plus
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 G5 Plus, 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 G5 Plus around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The BLU G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 on the BLU G5 Plus are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
Inputting keys with one hand with the BLU G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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 G5 Plus 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
Since the BLU G5 Plus displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.
The beauty of the overal screen
The BLU G5 Plus can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.
Ease of writing sentences
The BLU G5 Plus has enough screen space even when typing and the screen is hidden by the on screen keyboard. Because the sentences being typed can be seen clearly, the phone's screen size makes it suitable for typing and editing large bodies of text such as office documents.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the BLU G5 Plus provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.
Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?
It is more than adequate for applications such as using social media—like Facebook and Instagram—and searching the Internet. Sometimes, though, it may feel a bit slow.
Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?
There isn't any sense of inadequate performance even when several apps are used at the same time and there is frequent switching between apps. In rare cases, it may feel slow and the display may lag, but I don't think one will feel stressed during practical use.

Display of the BLU G5 Plus
The BLU G5 Plus has a IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 720 x 1440. Compared to the average smart phone, the screen is relatively beautiful.
The battery life of the BLU G5 Plus
The BLU G5 Plus has a battery capacity of 3000 mAh. The battery's capacity is slightly larger than standard smart phones.
The processing capability of the BLU G5 Plus
The memory capacity is 2GB. The CPU processing performance is average. This level of processing is perfectly fine for games and Internet searches. It is slightly lacking in terms of high-capacity processing such as 3D games, but there are no real issues for normal usage. It has the memory capacity of a standard smartphone. Having more capacity would make apps less likely to crash and make it easier to use, but the performance is fine for the Internet and emailing. For gaming, you would want the next level up in performance.
The camera of the BLU G5 Plus
The BLU G5 Plus has a back camera with 13 MP. The front camera has 8 MP. Its rear camera has slightly better performance compared to normal smart phones. While there are times when I feel it is lacking, it is able to take pictures with satisfactory quality almost all the time. The front camera performance is also roughly the same as a standard smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.
