BLU introduced two new devices this morning, the Studio 5.0 C HD and the Studio C Mini, set to go up against Motorola’s budget devices, the Moto E and Moto G.
These two low-end phones are aimed directly at off-contract buyers, hoping to get a great Android experience at a crazy-low price. Both devices feature specifications which you would expect in a $100+ smartphone, but when comparing to the Moto G and Moto E, they are not that bad.
The Studio 5.0 C HD features a 5″ HD display (720×1280), 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, HSPA+ connectivity, microSD slot, and runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box. Priced at only $149.99 off contract, that’s not a bad little package.
The Studio C Mini features a 4.7″ WVGA display (480×800), 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 5MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, HSPA+ connectivity, microSD slot, and also runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box. With a price of $119.99 off contract, you might be pressed to find anything better on paper.
Below, we unbox both devices, plus go through a very brief software tour. As with all other BLU devices, they ship these phones running barebones stock Android, with minimal tweaks made. Both devices are available on Amazon, purchasable by following this link.
