The body of the BLU A5L is 2.5 inches (64.5 mm) wide, 4.9 inches (124.5 mm) long, and 0.4 inches (10.6 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 4 inch, and it weighs 118 oz (118 g).

Display of the BLU A5L

The battery life of the BLU A5L
The processing capability of the BLU A5L
The memory capacity is 3GB. 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 subpar. In addition, it has slightly more memory, which is more than adequate for general use. Most games can probably be comfortably enjoyed. Although I feel it may be slightly inadequate for 3D games, overall, there is no problem.
The camera of the BLU A5L
The BLU A5L has a back camera with 5 MP. The front camera has 2 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 A5L
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 A5L, 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 A5L around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The BLU A5L is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.
Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket
It doesn't feel strange even when you put the BLU A5L 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 A5L 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 A5L 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 A5L 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 A5L 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
Since the body of the BLU A5L is lightweight, your hands will hardly ever feel sore or tired even after using the phone for a long time. Also, since it is a light and compact phone, it will still be easy to hold even when using a case.
Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand
Even when used with one hand, the BLU A5L has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.
The size of the buttons on the App
Overall, the operating buttons on the BLU A5L feel small. This makes it easy to mistap, but usually this won't be a problem once you get used to it. The operating buttons in games are generally small so you may feel like it is hard to control when you're playing.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
You can type easily on the BLU A5L even with a tight grip. Even when typing at high speeds you can type freely without having to loosen your grip.
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 A5L 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 A5L is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.
The size of the letters and the ease of operation
The display of the BLU A5L is somewhat small and this can make letters feel small as well. However as the size of the writing can be adjusted in the OS settings and the screen isn't so small that it is hard to see images, this shouldn't be an inconvenience for normal use. While it doesn't seem well suited for reading long sentences in emails or when researching something, I can say that it is suited for short messages and for looking things up quickly.
Ease of reading sentences
The BLU A5L displays fonts relatively nicely, and even small characters can be displayed nicely. While people with good eyes can see the jagged outlines of characters when they look at the display up close, this does not make the characters difficult to see. It can be said to be a display that is adequately suitable for reading text.
The beauty of the overal screen
The BLU A5L 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
When typing a sentence with the BLU A5L the keyboard obscures the screen to some extent. While I do feel like there isn't enough work space to allow for long sentences, for short sentences it isn't really an issue.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
The BLU A5L 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?
Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.
