And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
Following our tests, we see that this Studio X9 HD 8 GB is not good for all cases.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

The Studio X9 HD 8 GB, enough for internet use?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
Studio X9 HD 8 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone comes with GPS.You know where you stand.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.And therefore several operators on this model.An interesting option abroad.
We found out that this Studio X9 HD 8 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 2000 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
Blu did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.And its screen resolution is low.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This includes 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.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Blu phone, for video games?
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Studio X9 HD 8 GB is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.It’s 8 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Blu predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its power of 2000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Blu has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Blu.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The screen resolution of this Studio X9 HD 8 GB is among the lowest on the market.With a definition of only 8 Mp, you will have lower quality images.This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The Studio X9 HD 8 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this Studio X9 HD 8 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
