We have talked about BLU devices a few times, but one of the main pain points we have with the company’s phones is that they never feature 4G LTE. Sure, they rock HSPA+, but for someone who is used to the speeds that LTE delivers, going back to HSPA+ is quite hard.
Finally, BLU has a 4G LTE capable device, the Studio 5.0 LTE. While the device does bring LTE speeds to users (only available on T-Mobile and metroPCS’ LTE networks), the rest of the phone could have used some work.
While the phone won’t overly impress with its spec sheet, at the price of only $200, BLU should be able to push a few more units here in the US. Full spec list can be seen below.
- 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- 5″ display (540 x 960)
- 8MP rear-facing camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 4GB of internal storage, upgradable to 32GB
- 4G LTE connectivity (T-Mobile and metroPCS)
- HSPA+ connectivity (T-Mobile and AT&T)
- Android 4.3+ upgradable to Android 4.4+ Kit Kat
While the specs may frighten most hardcore Android enthusiasts, anyone looking for a budget device with 4G LTE connectivity now has another choice in the market. Choice is good.
The Studio 5.0 LTE is available on Amazon right now.
