There are a lot of producers looking towards the low priced yet premium phone space. However, Blu is one of the only companies attempting to do that from within the US. Founded in 2009, Blu has impressed Americans with its range of devices – that are designed in the nation however manufactured in China – over the last some years.

Blu Vivo 6 design

If you first pick up the Vivo 6, it’s notable how premium the device feels. It’s massive, however still light and sits in hand comfortably considering this is a massive phablet device. There’s a 5.5-inch Full HD display.

The image quality and viewing angles look good upon first impressions. However, it’s not particularly bright. The auto-brightness mode, in particular, doesn’t appear to be that impressive. From the front, that is a rather stock-looking smartphone that appears to take design cues from another smartphone. It’s fully white with a single home button with a dot on either side to indicate the capacitive buttons. The back is a bit more thrilling though thanks to a rose gold, matte finish that I like. It manages to look pretty premium and eye-catching without essentially being an oblong mirror for a change. This also bodes nicely for fingerprints. BLU noticed fit to include a soft, transparent case for the back too which is a good touch. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 offers some welcome protection, and there’s also a contain screen protector in the package. There’s a new advanced piece of glass – which is nearly imperceptible – around the whole front of the device that I stored trying to peel off at first; this might be the ‘curved display’ that BLU retains talking about however I’m not sure I get the appeal.

On the top, It has a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, you’ll be able also to use Bluetooth here when you own a wireless headset. Beneath the screen, there’s a fingerprint scanner – something you won’t always get at this price level – which is simple to arrange and doubles as a home button.

Like many custom Android implementations, there’s no app drawer (though this is simply fixed) and for some reason, Opera seems to be the default browser. There isn’t much bloatware. However, most apps that come preinstalled, similar to McAfee Security, can be easily eliminated.
