Last year, the first generation Blu Life One X was unveiled to the public and it rapidly caught the interest of those who needed an affordable yet quality device. Following their success, they have reintroduced the Life One X this year as a new and improved model. Here's a short review on how well this device performed.
Blu Life One X (2015) Appearance & Build Quality
This year's Life One X is undoubtedly among the best-looking smartphones Blu has ever released. Setting aside its price tag, the device has a high end appeal thanks to its display edges, aluminum sides, and a removable back with a textured feel. On the right-hand side, you'll find the power and volume buttons. The microUSB port is on the bottom while the headphone jack can be found on top. Pretty standard stuff.
As for the display, the Life One X has a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Even though today's phones are equipped with a quad HD panel, 1080p on a display the size of the Life One X is already more than enough. This combination produces 420ppi index. The effect produces a beautiful color balance between the whites, dark blacks, and other colors.
Blu Life One X (2015) Camera
As for the camera on the Life One X, there is a 13MP rear-facing camera as well as a 5MP front-facing camera. Considering its price tag, the camera on the back is pretty commendable. But the front-facing shooter is pretty standard.
Blu Life One X (2015) Software and Performance
The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS straight out of the box but it's said to receive an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow by the end of Q1 2016. Stock Android on the device looks really great and enjoyable, which makes it a preferred option among those who prefer a device running as close to stock as possible.
Understandably, the Life One X is not a blazing fast device when it comes to its performance. But it's pretty solid, fluid, and snappy. The device is able to do what you want it to do without encountering any issues. And for its budget-friendly price tag, that's already a great win.
Overall, this is a very good budget smartphone manufactured by Blu. If you would like to get your hands on this device, you can buy it on Amazon for $149. Currently, however, there is a discount on the device available until December 12th. You still have time to get the Blu Life One X (2015) for only $99. After that date, it will return to its regular price.
