So I finally got my BLU Pure XL (Gold) shipped from Amazon – after paying $350 for it, I’ve been awaiting it like a little kid awaits his birthday 🙂 …
And finally the moment of truth. It is BIG … and HEAVY … and AMAZINGLY good looking, and fast, and awesome …
Next day: Buyer’s remorse sets in … maybe I should have gotten a One Plus Two?
Day Two: Buyer’s remorse gone! This phone is awesome! It has a few things i hate, but overall – awesome!
Watch my unboxing and first impressions video:
BLU PURE XL Specs:
6″ WQHD (2560×1440) Super HD AMOLED
HELIO X10 – Octa Core – 8x at 2.0 GHz CPU + IMG G6200 700 MHz GPU
DUAL SIM LTE (Dual ACTIVE) up-to 150mbps – data in both SIMs, but not simultaneously.
3500 mHa battery will last all day for 99% of people.
24 mp Main Camera with great low light performance and 4K video recording.
8 mp selfie camera.
64GB rom + 3GB ram
Android 5.1 Lollipop
Great 3D gaming performance!
Fingerprint Scanner that works great.
This phone has a pretty decent Camera App, and is very snappy out of the box (unlike BLU Studio 6 LTE, which was super slow, until you install 3rd party launcher).
Stock rom has some customizations that you will have to get used to, but it becomes easy after a day or two.
Battery should last you all day easily, with medium to heavy usage.
Overall, I’m very happy with this – stay tuned for my full review in a few days.
In the meantime, here are some additional videos I’ve made about this phone so far:
