The BLU Energy XL is an affordable mid-ranger with a big screen and an even bigger, 5000 mAh battery
The BLU Energy XL sports a huge 6.0-inch 1080 x 1920 px Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 coating, capable of producing 367ppi. Under the hood, there's a MediaTek 6753 octa core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with a Mali-T720 GPU – which is an underwhelming mid-range combo that's to be expected from a phone in this price range – backed with 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable internal memory and the aforementioned 5000 mAh battery which is obviously the highlight of the product.
No surprises in the camera department, as the Energy XL comes equipped with a 13MP rear shooter, capable of recording 1080p video at 30fps, and a 5MP front-facing camera. Other features include a fingerprint scanner under the home button, a USB Type-C 2.0 port, and support for quick charge with promised charge times from 0 to 15% in only 10 minutes, and from 0 to 43% in half an hour.
BLU is promising some 72 hours of battery life for “standard usage” for its new flagship and upwards of 30 days of standby, but we all know that those figures might be a tad off. The Energy XL is available now on Amazon for $299.
