BLU Studio Energy 2 Phone Got an Update Today.

Still 79% after 1 full day of use.

So my BLU Studio Energy 2 received an update to. Nothing all that exciting. The Android is still at 5.0 and based on the update description it is just a few performance tweaks.

Who knows, maybe I can squeeze even more battery life out of this thing? Doubtful considering the current 3-4 days average battery use time. But I won’t complain. This is still the best device I own when it comes to battery life. It simply lasts forever and I rarely even worry about “will the charge last?”.

It does everything I need a phone to do and performs well, so being stuck at Android 5.0 is no big deal, considering what a low cost I paid and how great the specs are on this phone.

Not Really Tablet Related….But N.O.V.A 3 Works Great On My BLU Energy2 Phone! (Video)

NOVA=game-image
Not a bad game, just a bad player…

This game is rather fun and I use it to test out video performance on any tablet I can get my hands on.  It just so happens that it runs very well on my BLU Energy2 smartphone, so I thought I would share a short video.

Of course all game videos I post are rather short, because I am terrible at most video games…

blue-studio-wht2So this is the 3rd week with the BLU Studio Energy 2 phone and the battery continues to amaze. There really isn’t much more to say, watch the video, then go get one of these!

For the price you won’t find a longer lasting phone anywhere!

There is no doubt about it…If you write about stuff that is low priced it takes roughly 3 days before ruining my plans and raising prices!

cartman_angry_animated_gifSo I have been waiting on my tax return, in order to purchase cool stuff to write about and the day I am notified that the return has been deposited, you guessed it! Yeah, both items I was waiting to order went up in price!

I have but one word for the folks on Amazon and Newegg…. “UP YOURS!”

Yes I know that is 2 words, uh right now I am so angry that I could say even more…so I won’t and I shall wait and watch for both the Blue Energy 2 Android phone and the  Asus Z580CA to drop back to a reasonable level.

In the meantime I shall shop for alternatives. Who knows, maybe the Chinese websites have cool stuff? It is all made over there anyway…

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.
