blu-studio-touchIf you are in the market for a new smartphone simply because your old one has given up the ghost, then you would surely look to various contenders such as notable names from the likes of Samsung, Motorola, Apple, HTC, Huawei, and perhaps even Sony. Well, those who want a comparable set of features without compromising on their monthly budget can check out products from BLU that have given a fair amount of bang for your hard earned buck. BLU’s latest addition to the mix would be the BLU Studio Touch, where it comes with an all metal body and a fingerprint scanner (at last) to keep up with the rest of the competition.

What makes the BLU Studio Touch special? The introductory price of just $99, as an unlocked device, is certainly going to raise eyebrows. Don’t be surprised that for a Benjamin, you end up with a smartphone that has a whole lot of high end features, Including a 1.0 GHz quad-core processor, fast 4G LTE speed support, and an 8MP autofocus main camera at the back. For selfie lovers, you will be able to capture a group photo without too much hassle thanks to the wide angle 5MP selfie camera with LED flash. Not only that, there is an integrated selfie enhancement camera software so that folks look their best in the digital world.

The 5” High Definition display might disappoint some, but at that price point, there really isn’t much that one has to complain about. Not only that, it will be powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so there is no need to worry about waiting for a mobile operating system update, and you can choose from either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. For added security, there is a fingerprint sensor that will help ensure no one accesses your data and private information when it is out of your sight.

On the outside, you will find that the BLU Studio Touch is made of an aluminum metal body that is not only stylish, but also durable to boot, ensuring that it ends up with a premium feel. Any takers?
