Bottom Line

As BLU’s most ambitious device yet, the Pure XL offers high-end hardware and a solid design for power users on a budget. However, its battery life and low-light camera performance need improvement, and BLU must ensure future OS updates if it wants to attract more buyers.

The BLU Pure XL is a bestselling 2015 6-inch smartphone that received positive reviews for its solid build, sharp display, powerful processor, generous storage and fingerprint sensor. However, its battery performance is underwhelming, it large size feels uncomfortable in small hands and there’s no guarantee it will receive the upcoming Android updates. All in all the Pure XL offers many features of a premium smartphones at a significantly lower price, and it is offers a superior performance than most competing budget smartphones.
