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?
