BLU Life One X touts plenty of bang for your buck

blu-life-xWhen it comes to smartphones, there are many different manufacturers to choose from – although you can be sure that some of us would pretty much prefer to stick to the tried and tested “formulas” of established brand names such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Huawei and Motorola. Don’t forget that there is a host of other smartphone manufacturers out there, especially the ones from China like Oukitel and Xiaomi, not to mention OnePlus. BLU Products is also one of the fastest growing mobile phone manufacturers in the world, where the company has just announced the Life One X that will be the latest model from the BLU LIFE family of smartphones that intend to offer premium build quality with flagship performance, all without breaking the bank. A noble effort, surely!

Hardware specifications of the Life One X include a 64-Bit MediaTek 1.3GHz Octa-Core processor, 4G LTE support, a 5.2” Full HD display at 423ppi, a 13MP main camera that features advanced Phase Detection Autofocus with a 5P Blue Lens filter paired with a wide-angle 5.0MP selfie camera, a built-in LED flash, Android 5.1 Lollipop as the mobile operating system of choice, Dual SIM support, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,900 mAh battery.

The BLU Life One X is no slouch when it comes to performance either, especially when you compare it against the notable Moto G 3rd Generation, the BLU Life One X was able to outperform it in just about every category possible – Antutu benchmark, Geekbench 3 Single-Core test, Geekbench 3 Multi-Core test, the Vellamo Chrome Browser test, Basemark OS II, Gfx Open Gl 3.1 High Level test, and Geekbench Battery Test.
