Design and Display
It is always a nice thing when a mid-range smartphone appear and feels like a premium flagship, and that is the case when it comes to the Blu Pure XR smartphone. It features a plain yet exquisite metallic rear panel that feels nice too. The smartphone sports an impressive design and an overall solid ergonomics.

Battery and Camera
Most smartphones usually have a battery that lasts just for a day tops. In that vein, you have a 3, 000mAh non removable Li-Po battery.. Despite the 5v/2A quick charger, there’s no quick charge feature here.
Also, when it comes to taking pictures, Blu has you in mind, equipping the smartphone with a 16MP rear camera with flash and an 8MP front camera. The rear camera is capable of capturing 1080p videos while the front camera takes 720p videos both at 30fps.

Alongside the aforementioned features stated above, the smartphone also features a 4GB RAM accompanied by 64GB built-in storage that can be increased to 128GB using a MicroSD card. Out of the box, the smartphone greets you with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
