Bottom Line

The BLU Energy XL might not have the best Android UI, and it is definitely not the cheapest smartphones out there. Regardless, when you consider the amount of tech you’re getting, it still offers remarkable value for money.

The BLU Energy XL is a 6-inch Android phablet that was released by BLU Products in July, 2016. According to reviewers, its strongest feature is the massive 5000mAh cell it employs to deliver up to three full days of battery life on moderate use. Other than that, users loved the phone’s brushed aluminum design, the large and vibrant Full-HD display and decent performance. On the other hand, many felt that given its recent release date, Android 6.0 Marshmallow should have been running things, rather than the older v5.1 Lollipop. Additionally, the 13MP camera is surprisingly below par, especially in low light. The BLU Energy XL is a stunning budget-friendly device for the large-phone enthusiasts.
