As a preamble to this test
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.Already at the level of the operating system of this J5L 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.
Our tests have shown that this J5L 32 GB is sufficient for the majority of cases.He’s on the average phone right now.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.

|Taking pictures or filming|
Is the J5L 32 GB compatible for nomadic use?
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 J5L 32 GB looks really small.A modest 5.0 -inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
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.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
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.An interesting option abroad.
We found out that this J5L 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With only 2200 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
On the question of loading, Blu has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the J5L 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.The 5.0 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1280.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
On the audio side, Blu wanted to do it right.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Games, but also applications require batteries.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This phone only defaults to 32 GB; that’s probably fair.But some of you will need more; that’s why Blu has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.The power of 2200 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.0 inches.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
What about the videos?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Generally speaking, Blu has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Blu.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.With a definition of only 8 Mp, you will have lower quality images.The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.If necessary, you can even retouch the images with the embedded software.This J5L 32 GB will capture all the points of the image, and will perfectly reproduce the brightness and colors.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The J5L 32 GB in conclusion
This J5L 32 GB meets the majority of use cases.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
