C5L 2020 16 GB for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
A model that fits in your pocket: the C5L 2020 16 GB.A size of 5.0 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Important when you’re away from home.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With only 2200 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Blu has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1280.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
On the audio side, Blu wanted to do it right.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Blu has provided a free space for an extension.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 2200 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.0 inches.That’s gonna make it harder to read.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Blu has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Blu.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this C5L 2020 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.If necessary, you can even retouch the images with the embedded software.You will be able to see at which point each point in the image is correctly captured.This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
What about the C5L 2020 16 GB?
The design of this C5L 2020 16 GB is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
