The Studio X10 16 GB, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
A model that fits in your pocket: the Studio X10 16 GB.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.0 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.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 know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this Studio X10 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.The 2100 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.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.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Studio X10 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.An 5.0 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.A resolution which is moreover in 480 x 854.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Blu has also designed this product for audio use.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
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 other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Studio X10 16 GB is below its competitors.Its Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This phone only defaults to 16 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.
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.Its power of 2100 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 196* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Blu is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Studio X10 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.It’s not the best device for making selfies.Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.This Studio X10 16 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
What about the Studio X10 16 GB?
The design of this Studio X10 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
