Let's go through its details, one by one -

BLU Life One X2 Mini Display

In terms of display, we have the Life One X2 Mini with remarkable 5-inch Curved Glass display with full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The pixel density stands out to be 440 PPI and has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top, preventing it from scratches and cracks.

That is quite impressive and top-notch in terms of display and design.


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset with Octa core processor powers the device. It provides improved performance by 30% than its predecessor. It has got 4 GB RAM and Adreno 505 GPU for graphical processing. This combination of hardware will be enough to give you utmost performance without any lagging or slowness.

BLU Life One X2 Mini Camera

On the camera front, it has a lot to offer considering it's priced at just $180. There is a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX258 image sensor. It includes features like Phase Detection Autofocus [PDAF] with f/2.2 aperture and 5P lens.

There is 8-megapixel front facing camera for the wide-angled selfies, which includes features like face beautification, Panorama, and HDR.

Both cameras have LED flash tied up with it to improve low-light camera photos and videos.

Battery Life and Security

Life One X2 Mini packs 3000 mAh Lithium Polymer battery. It's non-removable and provides a talk time of up to 16 hours on 3G.

From the security front, we have the fingerprint sensor on the device.


One you talk about one field where it disappoints, it should be software. It runs on Android mobile software by Google with 6.0 Marshmallow, out of the box.

I hope, BLU team consider upgrading it to Android 7.0 Nougat. It will be a delight to this smartphone owners. According to, Life One X2 will get the Nougat update.
