Design and Display

It is always a nice thing when a mid-range smartphone appear and feels like a premium flagship, and that is the case when it comes to the Blu Pure XR smartphone. It features a plain yet exquisite metallic rear panel that feels nice too. The smartphone sports an impressive design and an overall solid ergonomics.

The Blu Pure XR packs quite a brilliant display which fits right in the spec sheet. Although not the best, it is quite colourful and has a bright enough screen for outdoor use. That being said, the smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch 1920 X 1080 pixels with a pixel density of 401 ppi.
