As we all know, Blu always find ways to offer the market their smartphones at a very affordable price; in fact, it’s their custom to build at least a $200 smartphone entry in the said market. And during the CES 2016 during this month’s first week, they had announced another one that goes in this category, the Vivo XL.
Featuring a liquid metal finish, which is actually an almost tough plastic film; this phone has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display along with a MediaTek 6573 octa-core chipset and a Mali-T720 GPU. Though it looks like the phone is covered with a transparent case, this somehow gives more grip compared to Vivo 5’s all-metal case. It also deserves to point out that the MediaTek octa-core is the only true octa-core, meaning that all of the eight CPUs installed run in same 1.3GHz clock speed.
However, compared to Vivo 5’s 3GB RAM, this one is down by 1GB, though it similarly runs in their custom-made Android 5.1 Lollipop OS kernel. Experts also pointed out that the 16GB storage is comparably smaller than Vivo 5’s internal storage capacity, though it is more than sufficient for apps to run properly, along with the fact that it is also microSD expandable. Additional features include a 5MP front and 13MP rear-facing shooters.
