BLU Neo X2 Pros & Cons Review

- Analysis by KJ David


The BLU Neo X2, a sequel to the low-end Neo X, not only scraps its predecessor's leather back finish , it also relies on a similar hardware setup, composed of a paltry 512MB RAM , a basic Mali-400 graphics engine , and an all-too-common (in this smartphone class) 1.3GHz quad-core processor . Seriously, why are 512MB RAMs still around?

Adding to its cons is an old-fashioned 5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display , which suffers from a disgruntling 196ppi pixel density -- even 200ppi sounds off-putting, by December 2016 standards. Additionally, it lacks 4G LTE connectivity , which was already among staple smartphone specs as of its market entry.

Tagging along its pros and cons are a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, which, though unimpressive in terms of resolution, ends up as a pro, because of its Full HD (1080p) maximum video-recording resolution . Sadly, its 2-megapixel-only selfie camera falls short of the 5-megapixel selfie cam trend of 2016. Accompanying its cameras are a modest 4GB internal memory that can be expanded by up to 64GB -- a rather unsung selling point, knowing that a lot of its entry-level rivals support only up to 32GB microSD cards.

Front Camera Android Phones

Despite losing its base model's leather backing, it dons a metal-like frame couple with a candy shell finish , though it oddly (for a BLU phone) only comes in black . As for its power supply, the Neo X2 packs no more than 2000mAh of power in the tank , which not only shies of the roughly-2300mAh average at the time of this review, but also makes it less-appealing than several other low-budget Androids stamina-wise -- a fact better illustrated by the graph below:

Given its humdrum set of pros and cons, the BLU Neo X2 targets practical users looking for a simple, Marshmallow-sporting Android phone.
