The BLU Tank Xtreme has a battery capacity of 4200 mAh.Compared to normal smart phones, it has quite a high-capacity battery.
The processing capability of the BLU Tank Xtreme
The memory capacity is 2GB.CPU performance is slightly lower than standard smartphones. While it is perfectly suitable for searching the web and sending messages, people who use their smartphone for more demanding purposes will likely feel that its performance is subparIt 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 Tank Xtreme

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.
Review of the product design of the BLU Tank Xtreme
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 Tank Xtreme, 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 Tank Xtreme around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The BLU Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme 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
The BLU Tank Xtreme has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.
Ease of getting it in and out of your bag
The BLU Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme 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
The BLU Tank Xtreme is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.
The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand
The BLU Tank Xtreme 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
Holding the BLU Tank Xtreme with one hand tends to feel unstable when buttons are displayed on the edge of the screen. The size of the buttons doesn't make it impossible but it does make it more likely that you will drop it so take care.
The size of the buttons on the App
The buttons displayed on the BLU Tank Xtreme 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
Keys on the BLU Tank Xtreme can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.
Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion
If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the BLU Tank Xtreme with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.
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 Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme 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 Tank Xtreme, 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?
The BLU Tank Xtreme has performance that allows it to be used comfortably for phone calls, emails, and chat. It is rare but sometimes there is lag. Still, this almost never occurs, so it can be said to be suitable for normal use.
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?
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.
