You might have never heard of the BLU Life One X smartphone ever in your life, and that’s fine, we don’t blame you. The phone came out initially in 2015 with moderate to little excitement around it. It’s an affordable Asian-made device that doesn’t have the most impressive specs or hardware behind it, so it’s not surprising that there weren’t a lot of excited voices creating buzz around its launch.
When the BLU Life One X first launched back in 2015, it ran on Android Lollipop out of the box. It failed to get updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in 2016, so people kind of lost hope with it. However, the newer 2016 edition of the BLU Life One X will finally update its now severely aging Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system to the slightly newer Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In the midst of most smartphone switching up to Android 7.1 Nougat and waiting for Android O, the BLU Life One X’s update to Marshmallow seems comedic to say the least.
But the BLU Life One X could never support Android Nougat or Android O. It’s an under-mediocre smartphone with a modest build and old, aging, laggy hardware inside it. Although it does fulfill its basic duties as a phone, it’s most certainly nothing to write home about. It’s not a phone that’s aimed at performance, that’s for sure. But if you want something small, cheap and easy to navigate, the BLU Life One X might be a fine choice.
All in all, there’s not much we can say about this update that the BLU Life One X. It’s outdated and uninteresting, just like the phone itself. Sorry, BLU Life One X, but your makers probably also know this about you.
