The Studio X9 HD 8 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
Studio X9 HD 8 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
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.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With a power of 2000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Blu has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1280.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, Blu wanted to do it right.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
For games, you need performance.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
After our tests, we find out that this Studio X9 HD 8 GB is in the lowest rankings.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 8 GB, which is low.And because Blu predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.With a power of 2000 mAH, it will need to be recharged 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 inches.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.
What about the videos?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Blu has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Studio X9 HD 8 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
Finally, the Studio X9 HD 8 GB…
Our analysis showed that this Studio X9 HD 8 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
