BLU Products might not be there at the very top of the smartphone makers list, but it has made a name for itself by outing affordable alternatives for your mobile needs. And here it is again with yet another entry, the BLU Studio 6.0 HD, this time for the giant phablet category.

The BLU Studio 6.0 HD might be big in size and name, but don’t expect big features that you’d find in similar-sized models from other brands. But first, let’s try to look at its good sides. The 6-inch screen might be a bit debatable but it is large enough to hit things with even the biggest finger. And at least is has a resolution of 1280×720, just enough for those HD videos. You have a rather decent amount of RAM at 1 GB, which is the usual size you’d find in mid-tier smartphones. On the back you have an 8 megapixel shooter, with a 2 megapixel camera on the front. The 3000 mAh battery will most likely keep the device running for a good while before rushing for a power outlet.

There are definitely areas where BLU cut some corners. The 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor was probably chosen to keep costs down, which might not sit well with Qualcomm believers. Internal data storage is capped at a very low 4 GB, something you probably don’t expect in a huge smartphone like this. It also runs an older Android 4.2.2 which adds to Android fragmentation. And finally, it has no support for 4G LTE, but can at least work on the fastest 3G network technologies.

Balancing out all these pros and cons, however, is the price tag, which comes at only $250. It will definitely be a bargain if you’re in the market for a large, cheap, unlocked device and wouldn’t mind putting a large slab near your ear when making or taking a phone call. The BLU Studio 6.0 HD is slated too arrive on Amazon’s catalog next month.
