Studio X10 16 GB for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The Studio X10 16 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.0 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone has GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
No protection on the screen of this Studio X10 16 GB.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With only 2100 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Blu has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.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.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 480 x 854.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
For the audio part, Blu wanted to do well.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Blu’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our tests put this Studio X10 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 16 GB, which is low.And because Blu predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 2100 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Blu is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Blu.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Studio X10 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.So photo retouching is not exceptional.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This smartphone has only 16 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
What about the Studio X10 16 GB?
Following our tests, we see that this Studio X10 16 GB is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
