Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Blu G5
Blu R2
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.weight

187g

156g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.thickness

10.4mm

9.6mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.height

150.5mm

150.3mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.width

71.5mm

74.3mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

111.91cm³

107.21cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

293ppi

282ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

720 x 1440px

720 x 1280px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

5.5"

5.2"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Blu G5
Blu R2
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Blu G5
Blu R2
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has an IPS screen
Blu G5
Blu R2
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.

Performance

1.CPU speed

8 x 1.6GHz

4 x 1.3GHz (MediaTek MT6580)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

2GB

1GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Blu G5
Blu R2
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

32GB

8GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.semiconductor size

28nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
6.Supports 64-bit
Blu G5
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP

8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

8MP

8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has built-in optical image stabilization
Blu G5
Blu R2
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.Has a dual-tone LED flash
Blu G5
Blu R2
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
6.has a BSI sensor
Blu G5
Blu R2
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Blu G5
Blu R2
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Blu G5
Blu R2
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Blu G5
Blu R2
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.battery power

3000mAh
