- Analysis by KJ David
A wide-screen smartphone opting for budget-class hardware components only, the BLU G70 suffers from cons like a measly (compared to what a few other 2020 6-inchers offer) 2GB RAM and a 2GHz eight-core MediaTek Helio P23 that cannot hold a candle to those of the leading eight-core smartphones around the time of this technical Phonerated review, most of which use at least 2.5GHz chips.
Also among its rather underwhelming specs is its 1560 x 720 HD+ screen resolution , if only because its wide 6.4-inch 19:9 facade could have used at least a 1080p (Full HD or Full HD sharpness. By the way, don't forget to check out some of the best large-screen phones.
As for the positive side of its array of pros and cons, the G70 banks on a 4000mAh battery coupled with a 10W fast-charging system, which sounds more than adequate, at least relative to its relatively undemanding processing components. It also has a respectable (within the budget Android category) 13- plus 2-megapixel dual camera , the sub-lens being a depth-of-field sensor for things like bokeh photography.
Its punch-hole front camera design sounds like an unsung pro as well, considering that such a design element was more common among high-class models when it was released. Having said that, its 8-megapixel-only selfie cam resolution poses no threat to those of the best selfie smartphones on the market.
Also joining in is a 32GB internal memory that can be expanded by a maximum of 128GB, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for security, and standard 4G network connectivity. Its pros and cons are topped off by the Android 9.0 ecosystem, with its exterior being covered by either a Metallic Black, a Turquoise Green, or a Gradient Blue finish.
Wrapping up, the G70 caters to those who want a large-screen budget smartphone that pays close attention to battery life more than anything else.
