BLU R2 is a new phone that looks very cool in design. It has a fingerprint located at the rear side. Right below the camera. Reminds me a bit about the Huawei Mate 9 smartphone design. On the front you can see the BLU logo below the display.
Main specs: 5.2 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 720×1280 pixels screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, Mediatek MT6580 Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, Mali-400 GPU, 8GB Internal storage, 1GB of RAM and microSD card expand up to 64GB!
Two downsides I can see here with BLU R2 is that it looks like the GPU is not the MP2 variant of Mali 400. Also that it only comes with 1GB of RAM so this phone will probably not be that good for heavy games.
In terms of cameras on primary side the rear area you get an 8MP sensor with Dual LED and dual tone flash. You can record video with 1080p at 30 frames per second. The secondary camera has an 8MP lens and that also comes with dual LED and dual tone flash.
With music you can use a wired cable because it supports 3.5mm audio jack. The battery has massive 3000mAh inside. Which is pretty impressive for the low price this phone cost. It can last up to 725 hours over 2G and 625 hours over 3G in the standby section. When we talk about talk time you get up to 26 hours over 2G and 16 hours over 3G.
The colours BLU R2 exist in are Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Silver. It’s a pretty thick phone 9.6mm that is almost 1cm thickness. The weight is pretty standard with 156 grams. You can insert Dual SIM perfect for people that travel.
This company get mixed reviews on their phones. Some love some dislike. This phone got announced around 6 months ago.
