And to begin with…
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?The operating system is a matter of taste; on this J5L 32 GB, Blu chose Android.
Considering that this is not a prohibitive measure, let’s see if this article is made for you.
Blu provides us with a well-balanced phone here.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.In conclusion, it is a good product.

|Making photos or movies|
What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
A model that fits in your pocket: the J5L 32 GB.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.0 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Important when you’re away from home.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.That is, several operators at the same time.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this J5L 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 2200 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Blu did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.A handy device for watching videos.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the J5L 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1280.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
Blu has also designed this product for audio use.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Blu phone, for video games?
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Blu predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its power of 2200 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.0 inches.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Generally speaking, Blu has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.This model thus has only one objective.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this J5L 32 GB.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.You can reprocess all your photos after you take them.This J5L 32 GB is really easy to access for the retouching part of the images.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
In short, the J5L 32 GB, the right choice?
This J5L 32 GB corresponds to the majority of use cases.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
