BLU has a reputation of making smartphones with the idea of keeping more money in your pocket. It’s pretty easy to find a range of BLU devices under $150. You obviously won’t get flagship specs on any of its phones, but for the most part, it makes some really solid devices.
Understanding there is a growing market for gaming smartphones, BLU decided to throw its hat into the arena with the announcement of the G90 Pro.
The standard retail price of the G90 Pro is $249.99, however, if you are one of the first to purchase the device you get an instant discount. While supplies last the G90 Pro will be available for $219.99. That is simply insane for a gaming phone. Now that we know about the pricing let’s get into the specs.
- 5” Full HD+ display (2340×1080, 19:9 aspect ratio, 396ppi)
- MediaTek Helio G90T SoC
- Fingerprint sensor and Face unlock
- 4GB RAM/128GB Memory with a MicroSD card slot
- 5,100mAh LiPo battery
- 18w Quick Charge/10w Wireless Charge
- Dual SIM
- Quad rear cameras: 48MP main, 2MP depth sensor, 8MP Ultra Wide, 2MP Macro
- Front camera: 32MP
The G90 Pro seems to be a pretty solid device on paper. Save for the memory (RAM), I think the G90 Pro has everything it needs to succeed in a market of budget phones that is actually starting to get a little crowded (which is a good thing). To call it a gaming phone almost puts it in a class of its own, simply because there aren’t any at this price point.
