What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
A model that fits in your pocket: the Studio X10 16 GB.A modest 5.0 -inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this Studio X10 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.The 2100 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Blu has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the Studio X10 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.0 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 480 x 854.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
For the audio part, Blu wanted to do well.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Studio X10 16 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.And because Blu predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 2100 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Blu is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Blu.This model thus has only one objective.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This smartphone has only 16 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.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 Studio X10 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
Following our tests, we see that this Studio X10 16 GB is not good for all cases.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
