Want a smartphone with a massive 5000 mAh battery? Blu Studio Energy is now available in the US
Blu kicked off 2015 by announcing 7 new Android smartphones, with the Studio Energy being among them. Starting today, the Studio Energy is available to buy from Amazon in the US, unlocked, for $149.

The Blu Studio Energy is not the type of handset that you usually see in the US, as it offers a very generous 5000 mAh battery in a relatively compact body. According to Blu, this battery can provide up to 96 hours (4 days) of standard usage, or up to 45 days of standby time. This definitely beats other battery champs out there - like the Motorola Droid Turbo. The Studio Energy can also be used as a power bank to recharge other devices (a reverse charge cable is included in the box).

While the 5000 mAh battery is definitely its most important selling point, the Blu Studio Energy also offers other features that are notable for its price point: 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, Dual SIM Dual Active technology, and Android KitKat upgradeable to Lollipop. The new handset measures 144.5 x 71.45 x 10.4 mm, and further comes with a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, HSPA+, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. You can check out our Blu Studio Energy hands-on for a closer look at the smartphone.

What do you say, is the Blu Energy Studio worth $149? Do you plan to buy one?

There is a Chinese phone with 5,350 mAh battery.

It's called Elephone P5000. Surprisingly, it comes with high-end specs.

Company's name and location are in the US. That's about it. The company didn't even design its phones. Most phones by BLU are just the exact same thing you can find in China and other countries under different brands (like Gieonee in China). Back in the days of the BLU Life One (1st gen) , BLU made some stupid statement on the facebook page. It was said by BLU that the Life One had a micro SD slot, but people who bought the phone couldn't find it. They commented asking where the slot was, and BLU's answer was "please check either the top or bottom of the phone. It should be somewhere there." A few days later BLU deleted that whole post about the microSD thingy and changed all the information regarding that microSD slot leaving almost no trace. It was hilarious to me.
Just don't fall for it. The "American company" idea about BLU is bs. XD

I agree, I couldn't care less about having the fastest processor as I don't do mobile gaming. What I do care about is having a versatile tool such as a smart phone that is dependable and won't die if it's not continually plugged into an outlet. For that very reason alone, I feel that Apple is far behind Android.

The battery life certainly piques my interest. I'll see what the reviews say about this phone.

Does anyone know if this device uses Nano SIM or Micro SIM?

Blu typically uses a micro on SIM 1 and mini (standard) on SIM 2. SIM 1 is usually their choice to have HSPA. LTE is not a common item with Blu phones either.

If it can be used on Verizon Network then sure it would be a buy for me because I need a back up phone in case mines break.

so what, if the phone software sucks the big battery doesn't make sense, people must know size doesn't matter

Blue phones are usually (if not all) unlocked and works with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and like most unlocked phones basically with all companies except Verizon...

Unless Blu makes CDMA handsets, it won't for Sprint. Blu phones are GSM. Different technologies.
