With a 5000mAh battery, this phone should have no problem lasting three full days between charges with regular use. Blu has even added the choice to charge other devices from the Studio Energy 2's charging port so you can top your friends phones up as long as you use the included adapter.
The 5" 720p display uses Amoled technology, which produces very rich colors and true blacks emit no light whatsoever. Most budget phones cut costs on the display, however the display is arguably the most important part of the phone as its the primary input/output device.
Lumia 635 runs Windows Phone 8.1 and has a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, 512 MB of RAM and Adreno 305 GPU. Since the introduction of the Windows Phone 7, devices run smoothly on hardware that on paper should prove problematic. The Lumia 635 continues that trend with smooth navigation. Its
The Lumia 635 uses a 1830 mAh battery and according to Phonearena will drain in about 9½ hours of typical use. With its modest specs the Lumia 635 manages great battery life. It also includes a highly effective battery saver option.
Pixels are somewhat visible on the 635 with a PPI of only 221. The 635 also does not feature extreme touchscreen sensitivity for using gloves like the Lumia 520. Fortunately Nokia's ClearBlack technology that improves outdoor readability is included. The display is also protected by Gorilla...
With a Snapdragon 410, the Moto E performs very well for regular tasks - it's the same chip found in the nearly-twice-as-expensive Moto G (2015), but the lower resolution screen draws less resources resulting is overall better performance. The one area is does lack is RAM - with only 1GB you w...
Just by looking at the Moto E you can easily tell that it's a budget phone. It still feels sturdy, however it is very chunky at 12.3mm (0.48") thick, and the bezels are large (screen-to-body-ratio is under 65%).
The display experience on the Lumia 520 is decent. The LCD is small enough that it features a good enough PPI of 235. Nokia also included the super sensitivity capability that allows its users to interact with the phone with gloves on.
The colors captured by the camera are more muted than most other phones, and images come out soft. Under bright light the camera offers decent pictures, although any less light will increase the amount of noise considerably.
The antenna bands on the side stick out more than they should, and the back panel creaks. The back panel itself is removable, and is made out of plastic that is textured to look and feel a bit like leather. Side bezels are fairly large as well, although the rest of the front looks alright.
The navigation buttons are off-screen. They have no backlight, which means that at night they are nearly impossible to find. During the day, they are harder to see than other phones which have a backlight as opposed to blending into the bezel.
The 2525mAh battery provides enough power to go a full day for light users, but most will need to recharge their phone before the day is done. Playing a 90 minute video dropped battery by 27%, and GSMArena only rates the battery at 54h in their tests - a lackluster result.
The 13MP camera is the highest resolution you'll find for $200, but it also has a f/2.0 aperture which is above average for this price range. Other nice features like a dual tone LED flash, and 1080p video recording at 30fps are present as well.
The rear panel peels off, allowing access to the removable battery. This means that you can carry an extra battery with you, and replace it and get a full charge instantly. Or, down the road once the battery decays, you can swap it out and get another few years of use out of your phone.
