Processor & Battery Life

Battery size and battery life on smartphone is very important thing. Remember, larger battery size always doesn’t guarantee you of longer duration comparatively. Our Pure XR smartphone here has 3000 mAh battery, good enough to run it for up to 625 hours of standby time on 3G. But practically no one will keep their smartphone in standby time for such a long duration.

The battery will definitely run a day and half with normal usage and it’s at par with likes of Moto G4. There is quick charging facility with 9V/2A is also included.

In terms of hardware, the Mediatek Helio P10, 4 GB RAM and Mali T860 could only fetch just over 50,000 in Antutu Benchmark. Performance-wise that’s just ok.

Camera & Display

On the Blu Pure XR you will be loving the display as it has Samsung’s proprietary AMOLED panel. The screen size is measured out to be 5.5 inch diagonally and it provides a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels which is what we know it as full HD. It supports 5 fingers multi-touch and pixel density was observed to be 401 PPI.

There is Corning Gorilla glass 4 protection on top it and it gets 3D Touch support. So apart from resemblance to iPhone 6S Plus, the Blu Pure XR has one another added functions of iPhone here.

We unboxed Blu Pure XR smartphone and we found almost all the accessories. First the handset, then the screen-guard, SIM ejection tool, earphones with mic, USB cable with adapter, quick guide booklet, free back case and the handset itself.

We love the fact that the device includes free screen-guard and rear case. You will not have to purchase a new one. But if you are looking for one.

The Blu Pure XR hits out everything right but still it doesn’t make it to hot favorite as we have competition from likes of Moto G4 and ZTE Axon 7 which is hot favorite at this pricing.

At $100 or more you will definitely look out for smartphones like OnePlus 3 which is a killer phone with 6 GB RAM.
