The BLU 5.5 phablet is an updated variant of the previous 5.3 and 5.3S models, and as i mentioned earlier, features 5.5 inch TFT display with relatively low 480 x 854 pixels screen resolution, and 178 ppi pixel density. Well, the low screen resolution is not quite common for phablets, and if we will compare BLU 5.5 with its rivals, like Sony Xperia Z Ultra or Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, the Sony and Samsung giants both have higher resolution and pixel density in their specifications.
And if we will take a closer look into internal hardware of the new BLU 5.5 phablet – it has some nice powerful specs, which makes it an attractive handset available at very affordable price.
