BLU G50 and G50 Plus

BLU G50 and G50 Plus Review, Pros and Cons – Last month, BLU a smartphone company based in the United States, launched its G series, the BLU G50, and G50 Plus smartphones, with almost similar specifications. Here, only the screen size and body layout are different, otherwise, everything ends up coinciding in the papers.

Both BLU G50 and G50 Plus are specially designed for the entry-level segment and introduced with basic specifications, which pre-define their processing power, as well as most internal and external aspects. Now, let’s see what they actually have on their hood.

BLU G50 and G50 Plus Review

Highlights

  1. The integrated screen of IPS LCD technology is on both smartphone’s display.
  2. Both have the advantage of having a 4000 mAh battery, which expands the battery life and comes with a regular charger.
  3. It appears that these devices are available exclusively for the US market.
  4. A single 13 MP camera sensor at the rear and 8 MP selfie in front come on each device.
  5. The younger brother G50 costs about $ 80, while the G50 Plus costs $ 110.

Design and display

As usual, they consist of identical designs and have the same color variant option, which provides a classic smooth look and the top-up of the fingerprint reader on the rear panel reinforces the security section.

In addition to the layout, significant changes appear in size, thickness, bezels, and notch shapes. Like the BLU G50, it has a traditional 5.5 inches screen with a thick bezel head, while the slightly thinner BLU G50 Plus features a 6.2 inches screen with a drop-shaped notch with a proportion of better aspect of 19:9.

Memory and Internal

Both phones run on Android OS without additional layers, which makes the interface clean. In addition, the hardware structure helps you achieve a clock speed of 1.6 GHz to meet everyday tasks. In addition to the proper performances, the 3 GB of RAM paired to work with 32 GB of internal storage, and the storage expansion can go up through the SD card port.

Camera

The single set of 13 MP and 8 MP arrives at the rear and front, respectively, which offers average 1080p video quality. Although, there will be grain in the images and distortion in the corners next to smooth photos. They are not the best camera phones, for sure, and their flaws are nominal due to the price range.

Battery and Others

The good news is that it has a 10W charger, which is much better than the 5W, and the 4000 mAh battery takes almost two and a half hours to charge through the Type-C port. With a single charge, they can survive for more than two days while having their screen time adjusted.
Bluetooth 4.1, A2DP, LE with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and sensors such as accelerometer and proximity are present to support the BLU G50 series.
