We rarely talk about Frank noname devices from companies known is that the real experts on Chinese shops. But today is such a case, and very unconventional. The most inexpensive six-inch smartphone made by the company BLU, was not Shenchzhene or Guangzhou, and in Miami, Florida. So what we have here is not just a budget phone, and compatriot the iPhone. Albeit with different ambitions.

BLU Studio Mega in their characteristics might seem pretty standard smartphone for 2015-2016: platform

Mediatek MT6580 without the support 64-bit computing, 1 Gigabyte of RAM and 8 gigabytes of non-volatile memory, no LTE-module, the main camera is eight megapixels. There are only two but: a display with a diagonal of 6 inches (with HD resolution) and “clean”, devoid of the original shell Android 7.0 Nougat. Well, the price of hardly more than five thousand rubles.

The smartphone is received from the store JD.ru

BLU Studio Mega, information about the hardware according to the application CPU Z

Design, ergonomics and software

No surprises in terms of design BLU does not present special creative ideas here, too, not find – and that’s probably for the best. Dress up your smartphone as something strange and to paint in lurid colors, here we are dealing even with relatively faceless, but not causing rejection thing. Black rectangle with rounded corners, glass front and metal on the sides and rear. However, there are two variations – sold in Russia white gold is not available in the us pink and white.

Metal, by the way, the real – today, the aluminum at least in places and at times used even in budget models. Here it is made a Central part of the removable back cover – top and bottom left plastic in order to avoid problems with signal.

 

Under the hood is a removable battery and three separate slots for SIM-cards and memory cards. The budget class has its advantages – “serious guys” have long been shunned by removable batteries, and separate slots delight infrequently.

Included with the gadget is the silicone case is an unexpected addition to things for five thousand rubles.

The front panel is fully covered with glass. Unfortunately, the oleophobic coating is either non-existent or inefficient – zalamyvayutsya glass very quickly and easily, and wipes off easily.

BLU Studio Mega, back view: top – block main camera (projecting slightly above the body) and the flash, the bottom one is the main speaker

The dimensions of the BLU Studio Mega – 166,2 × 83,9 × 9,5 mm, weight – 196 grams. This is a very large and heavy camera – large screen has side effects, and be expected here of bezremontnoy, of course, not worth it. The smartphone will not fit in each pocket and use with one hand it is impossible.

BLU Studio Mega, top side: microUSB port and mini-Jack for headphone/headset

BLU Studio Mega, the bottom face is devoid of functional elements

The control scheme is quite familiar to anyone using Android smartphones. Mechanical keys (on and volume) are on the right side, the three standard navigation item is moved on the screen. They, of course, slightly conceal useful area of a six-inch display, but in this case, perhaps, is not concerned.

BLU Studio Mega on the right side: the power key and volume adjustment

Of unusual note speaker, bred the old fashioned way on the back surface, why the sound is noticeably muted, if you put a BLU Studio Mega on the table back down. Also noteworthy is the power connector (microUSB), who suddenly appeared at the top, next to the mini-Jack for headphones.

One of the highlights of BLU Studio Mega – software platform. This Android current version (7.0 Nougat) without any original shell and with a minimum of pre-installed software along with the standard “Google release” set here only a couple of apps Amazon (BLU apparently thus emphasizes its American origin, also the Amazon has long been one of the main channels of distribution for smartphones of this brand) and service program BLU Help. Usually luxury to choose for ourselves, than to fill your smartphone, the authors of the budget devices we do not leave, and bought in a Chinese store phone from China, often still to conjure with firmware. Here everything is fine.
