BLU Products has launched a high-end smartphone, the Life Pure XL

BLU Products is a Latin American company based in Miami that has placed their mobile phones among the best sellers in many countries from Central and South America. It specializes in mid-range smartphones at affordable prices, but with this device the company takes a step to the high-end devices.

The Life Pure XL is a smartphone with a 5.5-inch screen and full HD resolution (1080 pixels, 401 ppi), manufactured by Japan Display, Inc. (JDI). Besides offering good qualities of brightness, contrast and the typical good performance of the Japanese company, it is mounted on a very thin frame, which gives a front screen proportion of 81%. It is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with NDR (Native Damage Resitance), which will grant resistance to hits and scratches.


The company offers two versions with different internal memory and RAM, both with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The Premium model comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, while the more affordable version has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with the next upgrade to Android 4.4 Kitkat.

The camera is one of the strengths of the Life Pure XL. The rear camera has a 13 MP sensor and 1/ 1.3-inch, with a pixel size of 1.34 μm, which provides good image quality in a smaller number of pixels. It also includes a front camera of 8 MP with autofocus, a delight for all the selfies’ lovers.


In the area of connectivity, it has Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Wi-Fi hotspot, micro USB, GPS and FM radio. It also includes the usual sensors (gyroscope, accelerometer and compass). The 2500 mAh battery is not removable, and the overall dimensions of the phone are 150.6 x 75 x 9.5 mm, with a weigh of 128 grams.

In addition, the company claims to have powerful speakers to deliver a good music quality. It also includes the cancellation of ambient noise (3- Mic Noise cancellation).

It goes on sale today at Amazon, at a very competitive price. The Premium model with 32 GB of memory and 3 GB of RAM can be bought for $399.00, and is available in black (on May, it will also be available in white). The model with 16 GB of memory and 2 GB of RAM will go on sale in June for $ 349, and with two new colors, Royal Blue and Glimmer Pink. Starting in June, they will also hit the specialized stores in Latin America and the United States.


Among the few weak points of this device there is the lack of LTE connectivity and the memory, although still considerable, it is not compatible with microSD cards. However, if these are not a problem for us, the Life Pure XL is a very good device for this price.
