So I Read Every Review on Amazon and GSM Arena and I am really Leaning Towards the BLU Studio Energy 2:Video

That sure does look like a micro to Full USB adapter in the pic!??
That sure does look like a micro to Full USB adapter in the pic!??

So I spent a few hours comparing specs on several phones today and although the BLU Studio Energy has a Cortex A5 processor versus the A7 on my current phone the BLU Studio X, it seems processor wise to beat the pants off the older Studio X phone. This might be due to the extra .5 gb RAM, or 64 bit processing.

One way or the other, this phone is still the best bang for the buck that I have found. Of course it isn’t a huge brand name but it does what I need it to do at 1/5th the price of those fancy overpriced Samsungs and iPhones!

It isn’t set in stone yet, but the BLU Studio Energy 2 is at the top of my list right now!

As anyone who has ever read this blog knows, it occasionally runs on my Phone…

BLU Studio Energy 2

So the site here is occasionally running on my BLU Studio X phone. It is a great phone with one minor annoyance and that is the battery life is rather dismal. The phone itself works great and is more than big enough to do the job and the display is decent.

So  in light of that one minor issue I  decided to look for a phone with roughly the same specs but better battery life. My search began last night and so far the leader of the pack is another BLU phone known as the BLU Studio Energy 2. This thing packs a 5000 mAh battery. Yeah, that is about 2.25 times as big as most bleeding edge, overpriced  phones have.  In fact the battery is over 1000 mAh larger than the battery in my Asus Me572C 7-inch tablet which lasts forever!The price on these is currently at about $130 on Amazon.com and the specs are a tiny bit better.

Other specs which are better than my current BLU Studio X:

  • Super Amoled display
  • 16 gb on phone storage
  • 5 mp front camera
  • 1.5 gb Ram

Will I buy one? Possibly, although more research is needed. I don’t need a bigger phone, because I prefer one that fits in a shirt pocket and if I need a big screen I have this Dragon Touch Tablet and my super-duper 7 inch Asus ME572C tablet. So for anyone interested, be alert, I’ll probably be selling the BLU Studio X for roughly $65.

Linux Lite Running on My Asus X553SA Notebook. Works Very Well. Virtual Machines Can be Fun.

A little preface here, most posts on this site are about the Dragon Touch X10 but the real purpose of this site is to share information.

So tonight I decided to play with the Asus notebook again. I usually use my little Dragon Touch X10/Logitech keyboard, but I figured I might as well play about in Windows 10/Linux tonight…

There isn’t much to see in the video, but thought I would post it anyway. (Since the Asus refused to produce a via scen capture I did some screen capturing on the DTX10 and also edited here!)

My yourfreewordpress.com server got hacked again. Easily fixed but still annoying!

hacked1So the yourfreewordpress.com server got defaced again and I fixed it again. Hopefully updating my password to 32 random characters will solve that issue.

The nice thing about the tablet server here is that is has no ssh, no Telnet and no ftp access. Therefore it’s pretty much protected unless the hack is done directly though the WordPress installation. That of course is not a request for anyone to hack it since it would be a waste of time. It is completely backed up to my phone and it is a simple matter of transferring all the files from one to the other.

Today’s Productivity Report. Dragon Touch X10 Comes Through Again.

increase

So of course the server was down today, because I was using the tablet for its intended purpose.

I took it to the restaurant, edited my other web sites, created some posts and listened to some tunes and watched some videos. The battery life was excellent even with the minor issue I have noticed lately  which is the wireless mouse keeping the tablet awake. Not a big deal really, just hit the off button when not in use.

Upon arriving home I still had roughly 50% battery after 5-5.5 hrs of steady use. I really do love this tablet, especially for use as a small notebook along with my LogiTech K480 bluetooth keyboard and a mouse.
