BLU Grand M Review | Budget Smartphone

The BLU Grand M has 5 inch, 480 x 854 pixels resolution  (196 PPI), the screen can be hard to view under bright light and view angle is decent for the price. It has a aluminum back and it comes in PINK, also in other colours.

Ergonomic wise, the smartphone is easy to grab thanks to its small footprint. Thumb can control both the power button and volume rocker easily. I wished they had place the audio port and micro-SUB at the bottom of the phone instead on the top. It weighs 171 grams.

It packs a 2200mAh battery and from our test it manage to last 8 Hours 45 minutes. There is a 3.2MP front camera and 5MP rear camera both of them have flash, take decent pictures for it price, wish is had 8MP rear camera as a minimum.

The BLU Grand M is powered by a Quad Core MediaTek MT6580 at 1.3Ghz with a 512MB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Only 4Gb is available as the other half is use by the system and apps, so you need to get extra micro SD card up to 32GB. It has a Mali-400 GPU. Its limited to 3G network but it has Bluetooth 4.0. Running Android 6.

For RM369 is would be hard for them to sell large quantities and should consider better pricing strategy, there are competitor at the same price offer slightly better specs. Despite me saying that they do offer 2 year warranty as we were told in the product launch (1st year is 1:1 exchange). A decent phone for young kid to contact their parent, that’s how I see it 🙂
