BLU Products remains the leader of the US market of unlocked handsets, and the company's latest product comes to strengthen that position. Dubbed BLU Energy XL, this 6-inch phablet has a premium build, mostly mid-range features, but its impressive 5000 mAh battery also allows it to act as a power bank.

BLU Energy XL has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: MediaTek MT6753 SoC with Mali-T720 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB 
  • Display: 6-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels and 367 ppi, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop (Marshmallow to become available by the end of 2016)
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.46 pounds; 6.33X3.2X0.33 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: lithium-polymer 5000 mAh; 3 days of mixed use
  • Colors: solid gold, white silver

The handset also has a fingerprint reader and is already in stock at Amazon, where it retails for $299.99 USD, 6 percent down from the $319.99 USD MSRP. Unfortunately, BLU Energy XL only ships within the continental United States due to regulations.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
