As a preamble to this test
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?Already at the level of the operating system of this G70 32 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Blu ecosystem that goes with it.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.

G70 32 GB for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
That G70 32 GB looks really small.Indeed, with its 6.4 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
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.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.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.
No protection on the screen of this G70 32 GB.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
In addition, concerning the battery of this smartphone you will have enough autonomy with 4000 mAh,It will not be necessary to recharge during the day.
Blu did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 6.4-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1560.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Blu sought to improve the audio experience.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.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, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this G70 32 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 32 GB, which is low.In fact, for some passionate users, Blu has provided an extra space to add more.
The autonomy is correct for normal use.An autonomy which is in the middle range.With 4000 mAH, its power allows you to stay connected all day long.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 6.4 inches.This is an entry-level model: 268* pixels per inch.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.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Blu has a long history of designing quality products.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 13 Mp which gives a low quality result.This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The G70 32 GB, a good choice for the right use
Our analysis showed that this G70 32 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
