Review: Blu Studio Selfie
The Blu Studio Selfie is a perfectly respectable little phone. It doesn't have a flashy design or kitchen-sink features, but it delivers a core smartphone experience at a great price.
I genuinely like the simple hardware because it's well-made. I wish the screen had a few more pixels and wasn't so prone to collecting grime, but it performs well enough for this class of device. With support for LTE from both AT&T and T-Mobile, the Studio Selfie is a flexible handset. It did a good job at connecting calls and surfing the web on both networks, but call quality was a bit off. Battery life just barely manages to earn an "adequate" rating from me.
The stock Android user interface performs as expected. There are no surprises with the Studio Selfie. For a phone that's focused on capturing those pensive, solo moments, the Selfie's camera could do a bit better. It is acceptable, but not great by any stretch of the imagination.

Would I recommend the Blu Studio Selfie? Sure, if you want a basic Android phone and like the $99 price, it gets the job done.
